Democrats’ Corrupt COVID Package
Torunn Sinclair | February 23, 2021

Democrats are manipulating the American people by selling their $1.9 trillion socialist boondoggle as COVID relief.

But the reality is 91% of this corrupt COVID package doesn’t even go to COVID relief! It’s a liberal wish list filled with unnecessary spending that mostly benefits Democrat special interest groups, not hard-working American families.

Here’s a rundown of the 9 most corrupt provisions within the bill:

  1. Pet projects

$100 million for the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) expansion in San Jose, California

$1.5 million for the Seaway International Bridge

$1.5 billion for Amtrak

$500 million to fund the arts

  1. Financial assistance for illegal immigrants

$350 million is allocated for states and local governments which can be spent on public services for illegal immigrants – states can even cut illegal immigrants checks (like they’re doing in California).

  1. Schools – but not to get kids back in the classroom

95% of the funding allocated for schools doesn’t even get to schools this year, and not a penny has to be spent on getting kids back into classrooms.

  1. Teachers’ Unions

Up to $10 million can go to teachers’ unions, the organizations currently fighting to keep schools closed.

  1. Abortions

Planned Parenthood is still eligible for PPP funding and tax dollars can be used for abortions.

  1. Environmental Justice Grants

$50 million in funding for leftist environmental groups.

  1. Racial Justice provisions for farmers

More than $1 billion toward “Socially disadvantaged” farmers and related groups. 

  1. Foreign food aid

$800 million in foreign food aid.

  1. Pension plans

$86 billion to rescue underfunded pension plans.
