Morning Greatness: 2700+ Page Bipartisan Porkfest Infrastructure Bill Released

Good Monday morning.

Two minutes of hate:

The bipartisan “infrastructure” bill has been released and it is a whopping 2,700+ pages long. There are lots of Scooby snacks for senators in the bill because most elected officials are just mercenaries looking to pad their reelection résumés with chum for the filthy casuals that elect them.

I haven’t read the bill but the folks at Breitbart have and report that the bill “would allow federal bureaucrats to bypass ‘Buy American’ requirements for projects funded by the legislation.” They also report that there is no money for a border wall and mandates for states to reduce carbon emissions.  I’m sure there’s even more trash packed in there and we will eventually find out once it’s passed. The bill is so long that no senator has the time to read it before it will be time to vote. What a travesty.

The other hot story over the weekend is the expiration of the eviction moratorium. The intention of the moratorium was to keep people who had lost their jobs after the economy was shut down in their homes or apartments. The moratorium had gotten a one month extension but now the clock has run out for good. Landlords get income from renting out their properties to tenants but those people were just out of luck. Too bad, so sad. USA Today wants you to know “Even with the delay, roughly 3.6 million people in the U.S. as of July 5 said they face eviction in the next two months, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s Household Pulse Survey.”

Pelosi and her shrew crew are mad. They want Biden to extend the moratorium even longer to October 18 because she was not able to get the votes she needed in the House to pass a law. “It is clear that the Senate is not able to [extend the ban], and any legislation in the House, therefore, will not be sufficient,” the senior Democrats said. “Action is needed, and it must come from the administration.” The SCOTUS ruled back in June that the CDC moratorium could not be extended and would to be legislated if it were to continue. The squad is not happy.

“We have to really just call a spade a spade — we cannot in good faith blame the Republican Party when House Democrats have a majority,” Ocasio-Cortez said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

​“I think there’s a couple of issues here,” she said.

“First of all, you are absolutely correct in that the House and House leadership had the opportunity to vote to extend the moratorium, and there were many, and there was, frankly, a handful, of conservative Democrats in the House that threatened to get on planes rather than hold this vote,” the progressive lawmaker told host Jake Tapper.

Expect the media to be filled with stories about the wave of coming evictions.
