(UnitedVoice.com) – The COVID-19 pandemic has hit Americans hard. A year into it, millions of people are still out of work. That’s why Republicans have supported issuing stimulus checks in the past to help them. Now, Democrats seem to be taking advantage of the downturn to further their thinly veiled Socialist policies.
According to a March 27 Newsweek report, 64 Democratic lawmakers now support continued stimulus checks. The Left claims that’s up from the 52 lawmakers who supported sending recurring checks to people moving forward, including programs that provide funds only for non-whites like the one in Oakland. The legislators, led by “Squad” member Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), sent a letter to President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris in January to demand the payments.
Proud to join Rep @Ilhan on her letter calling for the Biden-Harris Administration to issue recurring checks to the millions of Americans in need of relief. The stimulus checks that have been sent out simply are not enough for families to survive in the on-going pandemic. pic.twitter.com/NpNyV6LtPS

What the Democratic Party fails to realize is that money doesn’t grow on a tree behind Capitol Hill. The country is currently more than $28 trillion in debt. That is money that is going to have to be paid back, but the Left doesn’t seem to have any problem sticking their great-grandkids with the bill.
