(ThePatriotSource.com)- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently debuted her HEROES Act, a proposed bill that would invest more money into the American economy and people. It is the proposed next round of relief legislation designed to help people cope with the devastating impacts of the coronavirus on the U.S. economy, but coming in at just under 2,000 pages, it took a few days for people to realize what was in it.
Now, after politicians and journalists have had the chance to examine what precisely is inside, we know that the Democrats’ plan is to bail out the rich and promote cheap labor.
What else do you expect from the Democrats at this point>
The HEROES Act would bail out the billionaires and protect big businesses by allowing them to continue importing cheap labor on employment visas, and to continue paying illegal immigrants and people who have overstayed their visas. At a time when tens of millions of Americans are out of work, this would be deeply devastating to the average American worker.
Breitbart also reports how the so-called HEROES Act would get rid of the cap on the SALT tax deduction that has been limited by President Trump, in turn giving coastal states like California, Massachusetts, and New York massive tax breaks. It would also give millionaires and billionaires $100,000 grants for annual incomes over $1 million…as if they’re the people who really need the cash right now.
The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget critically analyzed the plan, and explained how “completely repealing the cap retroactively for the last two years would cost over $130 billion, with about half the benefit going to households making over $1 million a year,” they said about the SALT tax cap lifting.
The Democrat plan would also stop the Department of Labor from being able to prosecute businesses who hire people who have overstayed their visas or who entered the country illegally. Under another provision in the bill, illegal aliens who work in “essential” roles would be granted work authorization.
In short? The Democrats want to help the rich, help illegal immigrants, and let American workers fight for whatever is left!
