Why did Pelosi fight so hard to block smaller Trump-era bailouts that carefully targeted small businesses?
Short term, Dems could blast Trump for ‘not helping’ struggling citizens in their time of need, while the media worked with them to massage the narrative in their favor just in time for an election.
But longer-term, Dems wanted a massively bloated ‘bailout’ plan that could serve as a slush fund to reward all of their favorite special interest groups and prop up financially failing Democrat states and cities with the public purse.
And fewer groups are more beloved to the Democrats than Planned Parenthood, who — mysteriously — managed to rake in some $83 Million in taxpayer dollars despite being specifically ineligible for receiving any of this bailout money.
That’s $83M that could have gone a long way to rescuing Heaven alone knows HOW many family businesses from financial ruin, not because they were running a bad business plan, but because the government forbade them from operating.
Fed up with Planned Parenthood affiliates continuing to receive coronavirus stimulus money “illegally,” several Senate Republicans, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, are demanding an investigation into why the Small Business Administration continues to write checks to the outfit.
In a letter to SBA Administrator Isabel Guzman, 25 GOP senators said that the affiliates have received $83 million and apparently continue to get money through the Paycheck Protection Program when the rules state they are ineligible.
What’s more, it said that the SBA is providing PPP money even after telling Planned Parenthood affiliates that they were not eligible for the money and demanded that it be returned. Only 7 of 38 affiliates have complied.
“It is unconscionable that SBA continues to approve PPP loans made to organizations which are clearly ineligible for funding,” read the letter about the money going to the women’s health and abortion clinics. “This is unacceptable,” it added in calling for an investigation into why the money continues to be provided. —WashingtonExaminer
If you’re wondering how in the HELL Planned Parenthood managed to rake in tens of millions in funding they were specifically excluded from receiving, maybe this story will shed a little light on what’s really going on.
Planned Parenthood will spend $45 million on the 2020 elections, the nonprofit’s biggest electoral expenditure in its history, according to CBS News.
The money will go toward the presidential election as well as congressional and state House races, according to Planned Parenthood Votes Executive Director Jenny Lawson, who told CBS, “The stakes have never been higher.”
The Trump administration, she told CBS, “has managed to undo so much over the last three years … the fact that this summer the Supreme Court might gut Roe v. Wade is an indicator of their intention and they’ve never been so bold.”
The campaign will zero-in on nine states: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, according to the network. The money will go into digital, TV and radio ads, canvassing, and mailers, according to CBS. —TheHill(Jan16,2020)
This isn’t helping meed medical needs in a COVID era. Not at all. This is the use of public dollars to restock a major Democrat election slush fund.
And it needs to stop.
In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
