(Liberty Bell) – The United States House of Representatives are set to vote on Speaker Pelosi’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package, which also happens to be chock full of items off the Democratic Party wish list, on Friday, and with liberals in complete control of both chambers of Congress, you can pretty much guess how this is going to turn out.
According to Gateway Pundit, however, this piece of legislation has a little something extra in it for federal workers who have kids or family members that have been impacted by COVID-19. Apparently, these folks will be receiving a $21,000 bonus.
Yes, while businesses are closing down all across the country thanks to the power hungry leadership of Democrat governors, and folks being forced out of their jobs and onto unemployment, federal workers get a fat bonus to stick in their wallets. Gee, Pelosi sure is a swell ole gal, isn’t she?
Guess the left really does look out for their own.
The bill is going to deliver $1,400 to each American, but those government folk get a whole lot more. Tells you who their priority is, right? It’s certainly not the struggling business owner or the factory worker now out of a job.
Folks, this is what socialism looks like. If you work in the government, you are part of the elite. You get taken care of. There will never be a time you do without. If you are just a pleeb like the rest of society, well, you don’t really matter. You are just another resource for consumption, a means to an end for making the government folks wealthy.
“The U.S. House version of the “American Rescue Plan Act of 2021” – a $1.9 trillion emergency aid package to help America recover from the coronavirus pandemic has an extra perk for federal workers: Enhanced paid time off if your child is enrolled in a school that isn’t back to full-time, in-classroom instruction,” Forbes said in a newly published report.
“Critics call it a personal bailout for bureaucrats. It is funded through a new $570 million family leave account exclusively for federal workers,” it says, adding, “While millions of parents struggle to work from home with kids who are enrolled in shuttered or partially shuttered schools, and millions more left the workforce or lost jobs to care for their at-home children, evidently parents in the federal bureaucracy need their own, personal Covid-19 bailout…”
As of right now, under the current draft of the legislation, full-time federal employees can take up to 600 hours of paid leave until September 30, up to $35 an hour, and $1,400 a week. That adds up to about 15 weeks for a regular 40-hour a week employee. Part-time folks are also eligible, with equivalent hours having been established by their respective agency.
It’s really nice to be part of the “in-crowd,” isn’t it?
