It’s been apparent for quite a while that the new legislation Democrats call a “Covid relief bill” is the porkiest of pork-a-paloozas to come out of Congress in history. Also it might not surprise you that Nancy Pelosi’s hometown is reportedly getting bailed out big time:
New: The federal stimulus package will erase the majority of San Francisco’s projected $650 million budget deficit over the next two years, saving City Hall from having to make painful service cuts and layoffs. For now. https://t.co/4uO0ig5OG0 via @sfchronicle

Isn't Pelosi from San Francisco?
Probably just a coincidence. https://t.co/gJEkPq1dqL

We just bailed out a bunch of failing entities with taxpayer dollars without making them make any changes to address the reasons they were failing in the first place. All while pretending it was a Covid relief bill. https://t.co/c7eFshAkwT

The real reason for Pelosi’s big stimulus bill. SF was in big trouble. Massive budget hole.

Example #2414 that the "COVID relief" bill was just another Democrat wish list.

They took your money and bailed out a failing Democrat city… https://t.co/yxMmCgyGgK

And not just cities. Sen. Chuck Schumer is thrilled about what the bill — ostensibly disguised as a Covid relief measure — will do for his entire state:

Ok. Thanks to @SenSchumer NYS budget deficit for this year is…..
Zero, nada, niete, zilch (NY terms)

Just like that politicians in New York won’t have to face the consequences of their own horrendous decisions:
The $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package passed by the US Senate wipes out New York State’s projected budget deficit — possibly negating the need for hefty tax hikes or spending cuts, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s office said Monday.
“Ok. Thanks to @SenSchumer NYS budget deficit for this year is…..Zero, nada, niete, zilch (NY terms),” Schumer spokesman Angelo Roefaro tweeted.
“Thanks to Sen. Schumer”? How about some love for the people who will be paying the price in several ways for what’s happened?
Which had nothing to do with covid

Now the NYS deficits are eliminated they will work on trying to get them back as soon as possible.

The Democrats have been emboldened beyond belief, and they haven’t even had full control in DC for two months. It’s bound to get worse:
My god. The title says “..What about the next one?”
