Federal COVID-19 Bailout Prohibits States From
Cutting Taxes

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 3/10/2021 10:56:47 PM

Buried within the $1.9 trillion emergency spending bill that Congress sent to President Joe Biden's desk on Wednesday is a provision that could effectively block states from cutting taxes if they accept federal bailout dollars. That provision, added to the bill by the Senate last week, could put a halt to several states' plans to cut taxes this year as a way to stimulate economic growth following the COVID-19 pandemic. Depending on how the text is interpreted, the measure could also make it illegal for states to create new tax credit programs like the ones that have become a popular mechanism for expanding school choice.

So basically you can't lower taxes, but if you have already wasted taxes on stupid and useless projects, you get more money?!?!?!? Yeah, you can tell this is a huge pile of Demon-Rat pork!!!!

This could lead to an interesting U.S. Supreme Court decision. Chief Judas John Roberts, in his first Obolacare decision, ruled that the federal government could not force states to expand Medicaid by cutting federal aid to any state that refused to expand medicaid.. It seems to me that the decision cited, would be referenced as precedent in the current kung flu law.

the democrat party is the party of taxation and nothing will change that. the one rule that overrides all others with regard to communist thought is to ruin your enemy economically because when a countries economy fails, nothing survives, nothing, so, without firing a shot you have defeated your enemy and to the democrats the people are the enemy and the republicans are the protectors of the people. one thing is imperative, the republicans must not cave to the democrats on this and must hold their ground.

#6, 7. You both are correct. Democrats are lawless. They hold to no authority but their own. And it’s just not in the political arena. They believe they are the authority in every aspect of our lives. This is the very definition of tyranny. Each time we are reminded of this I can’t believe the United States of America, the world’s beacon of freedom will be extinguished by our own people. The evil political philosophy that has murdered hundreds of millions has now come in earnest for this country. We will experience an evil that has always been far from us, however, it is in our midst now. In the seat of government. Implemented by rabid ideologues and enacted by government flunkies. We are bombarded everyday with its message in every corner of our culture. Freedom is slipping through our fingers. What will be our response when the government tries to do more than tell our states what they can and cannot do. When the evil eye of tyranny looks us in the face and demands something we cannot or will not give. Democrats will not stop pushing forward. They are so close to their ultimate fantasy of totally transforming this country. They will not back down. The question for the rabid anti-freedom cabal is what will Americans do when pushed too far. Right now, I have no idea what will happen, but I believe any pushback from red states is a good thing. Many Americans will prefer to die on their feet than live on their knees.

On the plus side..... California, New York etc all are now stuck with the highest taxes in the land. Businesses and people will continue their exodus. High taxes are counter productive when you don't have a population or business center to support them.

Very clever. Looks like the Democrats want the red states to go bankrupt along with their own blue states so they too will be completely dependent on the federal government and thus forced to obey every goofy dictate they come up with. So for the time being, they will use the prosperous red states as cash cows to temporarily bail out the bankrupt blue (as in "financially dead") states. and then they'll kill off the red states too. Kind of like locusts. How much longer are people going to put up with this insane crap? I mean seriously, is everyone munching Tide pods?

This is just the beginning of the Blue state steal ... from the Red states! Feel you're being ignored in fly over country? Tough darts. Feel you're being taken advantage of by urban areas, all you rural folks? So what? Feel your kids are being deprived of your hard earned tax dollars so that yesterday's illegals get freebies yo' awl down in Texas, Florida, etc? Too bad. The last time one fairly large group of 11 states felt they were getting screwed because they were outnumbered in Congress and their choice of president lost the nationwide election ... it didn't end well. For anyone. Before we end up in another shooting war --- I hope this one sided madness of dictatorial rule stops! It better stop!! Say anything negative that you want about Blue state Dems and citidiots ... they stick together and ram their agenda you-know-where! We had both Houses of Congress too for Trump's entire first 2 years ... and accomplished nothing. Thanks Paul Ryan!

What constitution? The Federal government has long been taking our money and giving it back to the stated with conditions attached. Forgive me if I'm a little off but Illinois is about 3rd or 4th in tax revenue sent to Washington but I think it was 47th in what flows back. Why? Because we are sewed up in the democrat strangle hold and our money better serves as bribes to purchase votes in contested states. I keep looking but I can't seem to find that in the constitution. Our freedoms and perceived government structure mean nothing when the tax code is used as a means of accomplishing that which can't be done through the legislative process.

Add the editors of Reason magazine to the list of Trump haters complaining about the harmful policies of the all-powerful Democrats they foolishly helped put in power. While Reason once espoused the libertarian philosophy it has slowly moved left, most obviously on the cultural issues but even, due to its contempt of Republicans, towards a de facto embrace of the Democrat Party. To Reason I say stop your whining. You got what you wanted. The awful Trump is gone and the Democrats own completely all federal levers of power. Thanks for nothing.

This so called covid Bill has gigantic strings attached with which the conniving dems apparently intend to tighten around America.

Washington really is the last nakedly racist place in America. And the very face of this city’s institutional racism is President Biden himself. Welcome to the White Privilege Presidency. Mr. Biden is living proof that no matter how dumb you are or how wrong you have always been or how many things you have screwed up, if you are just White enough and willing to wait around long enough accomplishing nothing, the kingship will eventually be yours. This is a guy who had been rejected by voters — often in his own party — in his endless quest for the presidency many times during his five decades running his mouth in Washington.

I massively underestimated the impact of the Wuhan virus a year ago, both the health impact and more important, as it turned out, the consequences of the political response to the virus. This no doubt was due in part to the fact that I personally never had any fear of the Wuhan flu bug. So there have been a couple of times when I thought the Wuhan scare was nearly behind us. My track record isn’t very good, so you should take these comments with a grain of salt. A considerable number of new Wuhan cases are still being reported

A few weeks ago I wrote that available polling points to the GOP splitting into three groups along 50/30/20 lines: “Fifty percent are hardcore MAGA, to the point where they’re more loyal to Trump than to the party. Another 30 percent are pro-Trump but a bit more ambivalent about having to choose between him and the GOP. The last 20 percent are the Trump-skeptics, a rump but a sizable enough one that they can make mischief

As we wrote about earlier, during his prime time address last night, Joe Biden thought he could tell Americans who could and could not get together on July 4th for a BBQ. His Chief of Staff, Ron Klain, then doubled down on this goal, that the government hopes to let you gather, in small groups, by July 4th (despite having the other goal of having everyone vaccinated by May 1). Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was among the many people who had something to say about Joe Biden’s suggestion that the government could tell us when and with whom to gather on July 4th. Or frankly, any day.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton threatened to sue the City of Austin Wednesday over the city’s continuation of a mask mandate. Governor Abbott removed the statewide mask mandate last week and his order went into effect Wednesday. Austin Mayor Steve Adler and Travis County Judge Andy Brown are keeping a mask mandate in effect until April 15 to “avoid another surge of cases.” I assume that the mayor and county judge (county CEO, not a judicial office) are concerned that newly free-to-be maskless Texans will throw caution to the wind.

Manchin will support the nomination of Attorney General Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.) for secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS). This makes Becerra’s confirmation virtually certain, and that is a crying shame for America, on many levels. First, Becerra has no medical experience and “little health policy experience.” This alone should raise alarm bells in a nominee for a key health position

Most Americans hate woke politics — and most minorities don’t share “woke” priorities. Indeed, according to pollster David Shor, woke excesses are causing black voters to flee the Democratic Party. Despite endless charges of “racism,” former President Donald Trump took the biggest share of minority voters of any Republican in my lifetime. Woke tyrants ride high, even so; according to a Cato/YouGov poll, 62 percent of Americans self-censor their political expression.

Biden stood behind his podium, often slumped over, squinting to read his teleprompter’s massive font. He’s getting worse, and it’s a sad scene. Regardless, there was also some semblance of substance to address regarding what he said. At one point, the president appeared to levy a fresh threat to re-lockdown the country if you don’t follow his rules.
