Caucus For America Guest Commentary by Business Leader Foster Friess

Seldom do I use the terms despicable, anti-American, disgusting …

… I struggle as they curl from my lips because I know I’m exhorted by the Jewish literature upon which our country was founded to “never return evil for evil.”

But here we have the major Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis and after people of good faith in both parties come up with plans to provide more ventilators, masks, develop vaccines, and provide funding for people who have lost their jobs…What happens?

Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer injected the following, obedient to Congressman Clyburn’s notion that the Coronavirus crisis is a “tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision”:

 

  • Corporate pay statistics by race and race statistics for all corporate boards at companies receiving assistance

Last night the Senate responding to public outrage to the “Pork Package,” passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) by a 96-0 vote, rejecting most of this “pork” irrelevant to the Coronavirus solutions.

In the below 2 minute 40-second video, Senator Susan Collins (Maine) and Senator James Lankford (Oklahoma) expressed the disgust Americans feel toward these attempted maneuvers.

Oklahomans express a no-nonsense, America-loving patriotism. Their U.S. Senator reflects this in confronting this outrageous maneuver.

 

Share this now with every Democrat you know so they can see how a handful of power-crazed former Democrats turned into a “We will control your lives and decide what is best for you” crowd.  True Democrats need to abandon these errant leaders. Encourage them to saddle up with Foster’s Outriders.
