Chuck Schumer was caught red-handed in this ugly coronavirus power play

Donald Trump and his team made a major mistake.

They entered into an agreement with Chuck Schumer thinking the top Senate Democrat was on the level.

But then Chuck Schumer was caught red-handed in this ugly coronavirus power play.

The Trump administration celebrated a deal with the Senate on a $2 trillion economic relief package that would save small businesses and allow workers in distressed industries to keep their jobs.

The stock market set a record rally when this news was announced.

But when Republicans read the fine print they found some troubling details.

Senators Ben Sasse, Tim Scott, and Lindsey Graham threatened to put a hold on the bill after they saw that Schumer snuck in language that paid workers more money for collecting unemployment than working at their jobs.

They argued that Schumer incentivized Americans to not go back to work and instead collect unemployment.

The three released a statement calling on the Senate to redraft the language.

Their statement read:

A massive drafting error in the current version of the coronavirus relief legislation could have devastating consequences: Unless this bill is fixed, there is a strong incentive for employees to be laid off instead of going to work,” the group said in a statement.

“This isn’t an abstract, philosophical point — it’s an immediate, real-world problem. If the federal government accidentally incentivizes layoffs, we risk life-threatening shortages in sectors where doctors, nurses, and pharmacists are trying to care for the sick, and where growers and grocers, truckers and cooks are trying to get food to families’ tables,” the statement said.

“This isn’t who we are as Americans; this isn’t what we do in a crisis. We must sadly oppose the fast-tracking of this bill until this text is addressed, or the Department of Labor issues regulatory guidance that no American would earn more by not working than by working,” the group concluded.

Democrats have continued to use this relief bill as an opportunity to play political games.

But at every stage they have been caught.

    Is anyone surprised that deep state establishment INSIDERS are still working hard to use this covid crisis to waste more treasury funds in order to crash our economy. That is their only hope to save the criminally insane new world order they have been working hand in hand with and escape being held accountable for treason and crimes against humanity.

    Typical Chuck the Schmuck Schumer move. He, live Swamp Queen Pelosi and most Democrats, can’t be trusted. There is no honor in his word. I don’t understand how the people of New York have been suckered in for so long that they have Schumer, AOC , Nadler and a few more in office. There is no honor in any of their words. They are all Swamp Queen Pelosi puppets.
