Congress’s largest conservative caucus is fighting back against provisions to “special interest” groups and “liberal” causes included in President Biden’s $1.9 trillion Covid-19 relief bill.
The Republican Study Committee (RSC) last week started circulating a memo that outlines “all the left-wing items Democrats are hoping the public won’t find about.”
Some of the questionable provisions include a $1,400 stimulus payment to mixed-status families with a parent illegal immigrant; making Planned Parenthood eligible to receive funds from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) designed for small businesses, and $1 billion to combat racism in agriculture, according to the Daily Wire.
The bill would also allow funding to go to colleges and universities that host the Chinese state-run Confucius Institutes, as well as $50 million for the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) environmental justice programs, which the RSC describes as “a thinly-veiled kickback to leftist environmental groups.”
According to the RSC, the bill:
• Provides $50 million in funding for EPA environmental justice grants, a thinly-veiled kickback to
leftist environmental groups.
• Extends PPP funds to violent criminals, including those guilty of assault on a police officer and
nonconsensual sexual crimes.
• Expands Medicaid eligibility, for five years, to incarcerated individuals 30 days prior to their release.
• Prioritizes funding based on identity politics while ignoring rural businesses and communities.
• Gives billions in subsidies and loan forgiveness worth 120% of debt to farmers and ranchers on
the basis of race and ethnicity.
• Gives $800 million in additional foreign food aid
“The RSC is leading conservatives inside and outside the Beltway in opposition to this so-called ‘relief package.’ The more we learn about it, the worse it sounds,” said Republican Indiana Rep. Jim Banks. “That’s why we’ve put together a fact sheet to educate Americans exactly how their taxpayer dollars are being spent by Democrats.”
