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.

    Schumer is trying to put American workers where the democRATS had Blacks for years. Just a little more than bare subsistence will keep them dependent on the Government rather than their own efforts.
    He’s trying to fill the fields of “The Plantation” with Government check slaves.

    Hey Geo, Why would you want to have Pelosi & Schumer over for dinner? They would charge you for the ” privilege ” of having them join you, you would have to count the silver before they left & you would have to fumigate & disinfect your entire place . That doesn’t sound like a good time to me! Trump 2020!

    I used to think there might be at least one democrat that is worth his or her salt. Now I am convinced more than ever there is not even one. All corrupt and evil to the bone.

    It holds true whenever any crisis arises – What’s good for America is bad for the Democrats eternal search for power.

    Its hard to understand where the Demo’s are coming from at a time like this. Where is “united we stand”?

    Pelosi and Schumer are the kind of people that, when you have them over for dinner, you want to count the silver before you let them leave for the evening.
    Holding the funding bill hostage while they load this emergency bill with Marxist restrictions on the country and fund pet projects for their friends and supporters that have nothing to do with fighting this CV plague, all at the expense of the taxpayers, is one of the most low-life activities I have witnessed in my lifetime. I’m sure that there is a special place in Hell reserved just for the people of this nature.

    You can’t shine s–t, it is what it is. Schumer is s–t! Without a doubt.
