Democrats Want To Buy Next Election With Giveaways
Free tuition for students is old. Free money for everyone is the way to go for today’s Democrats.
Now, the left is going big picture in the face of Trump. Free everything for every citizen, and no more ICE for illegals is the next big push.
After having the nomination stolen by Hillary Clinton and Debbie Wasserman Schultz of the Democratic National Committee, socialist grandpa Bernie Sanders continues to float ideas for a possible 2020 run.
Last autumn Hillary was claiming that Bernie only ran against her campaign to “disrupt the DNC,” and it’s looking like that’s no longer taken as a bad thing. Hillary’s book What Happened said that Bernie wasn’t looking to take over the White House, which is why he lost.
Now, Bernie wants to effectively bring in a $15 minimum wage by offering $15 per hour plus medical and family benefits to anyone who “wants” a job or “needs one.” The plan allegedly would help the government gather labor for all sorts of initiations from infrastructure, education and care giving.
Speaking of care giving and building and education, Last summer Bernie’s wife had attempted to evict disabled people from a group home that was on the land that the Sanders wanted to purchase for their now-defunct college.
Support for Plan by Gillibrand, Booker
So far, two others who are possibly throwing their hat in the ring for 2020 are supporting such a new development. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and Sen. Cory Booker are both looking forward to such a massive change.
Now is the time for big, bold ideas to fix our economy and put power back in the hands of our workers and communities. We can’t tinker at the margins any longer. https://t.co/73BlBlfSjE

Last week, Sen. Book announced his own version of the Sanders Plan. The “Federal Jobs Guarantee Development Act” would see the Department of Labor select 15 regional areas to be the first to institute a jobs guarantee. These jobs, like Sanders’, would pay $15 an hour and give generous benefits on par with the benefits granted to federal employees. Booker wrote:
“The federal jobs guarantee is an idea that demands to be taken seriously. Creating an employment guarantee would give all Americans a shot at a day’s work and, by introducing competition into the labor market, raise wages and improve benefits for all workers.”
The only real difference between the two plans is that Sanders will have 12 regions, not 15.
Democrat Plan Just Failed in Finland
Earlier today we announced that the 5.5 million people of Finland would no longer be pursuing the government dream of a guaranteed basic income for the unemployed. After giving the equivalent of almost $700 every month to the 2,000 adults in the pilot program, support is being pulled. Turns out that paying people money every month for doing nothing means that they don’t bother to look for a job or improve themselves.
Speaking with media, local University of Helsinki Professor Heikki Hiilamo said:
‘The Progressive Wing of the Party’
Speaking recently with left wing media, Rep. Ro Khanna, a Democrat from California said that he proposed a bill that would add on to the Earned Income Tax Credit already in existence. His addition would effectively double the payout for families on assistance, and it would increase the benefits for childless workers ten times over. Rep. Khanna said that Democrats with “big visions” must continue to be bold in the face of President Trump.
Democrat Hopeful Andrew Yang
Another leftie looking to throw in for 2020 is Andrew Yang. Speaking with Fox Business he recommended that people should vote for him, because he planned on $1,000 every month as guaranteed universal basic income for every citizen between 18 and 64. Yang said:
“The size of our economy is now $19 trillion a year. It’s grown by $4 trillion in the last 10 years alone. We can easily afford $1,000 a month per citizen.”
You see, Democrats have gone past the simple things like reparations and free tuition. They’re now looking to take over to be the cradle-to-grave suppliers for every citizen. But why stop at citizens? What about the migrants and Mexicans?
Sanctuary Cities For All
Ah, there’s the “free things for Mexicans and Central Americans” aspect. A former Clinton flunky named Brian Fallon wants to make sure that nobody forgets about the poor illegals, saying that ICE needs to be another target of Presidential hopefuls.
“Ice operates as an unaccountable deportation force. Dems running in 2020 should campaign on ending the agency in its current form.”
That’s it, I’m out.
