Democrats Are Shamelessly Filling the Coronavirus Relief Bill with Unrelated Pork and Policies

By Mike Bates

I just spent the last five hours reading the Democrats' bill to address problems arising from the COVID-19 Coronavirus.  Democrats are shamelessly trying to use the coronavirus relief bill as a pork barrel spending spree and to include several unrelated policy issues.

It was President Obama's Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, who said. "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that, it's an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before."  The Democrats are certainly using the coronavirus crisis to try to do things they could not not do before.

Below, I have compiled the pork & policies, along with the page numbers on which they appear.
