Thread: Republicans trying to blame Democrats for their own amendments

    Default Republicans trying to blame Democrats for their own amendments

    Barely days after the CARES Act passing massive coronavirus related legislation was signed into law, Senate Republicans through Sen. John Kennedy, a Republican out of Louisiana is trying to blame Nancy Pelosi through Fox News for Republican sponsored amendments.

    https://www.foxnews.com/media/kenned...l-pet-projects

    Many Republican lawmakers criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., saying she used the crisis as leverage to try jamming through a political "wish list" of unrelated items. Kennedy said they included a provision to speed up the FDA review process of sunscreen products, funding for the National Endowment for the Arts and additional cash for the post office.
    According to the Congressional Record;

    SA 1578. Mr. MCCONNELL proposed an amendment to the bill H.R. 748, to amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to repeal the excise tax on high cost employer-sponsored health coverage; as follows:

    PART V—MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS
    Sec. 3841. Prevention of duplicate appropriations for fiscal year 2020. Subtitle F—Over-the-Counter Drugs PART I—OTC DRUG REVIEW
    Sec. 3851. Regulation of certain nonprescription drugs that are marketed without an approved drug application.
    Sec. 3852. Misbranding.
    Sec. 3853. Drugs excluded from the over-the- counter drug review.
    Sec. 3854. Treatment of Sunscreen Innovation Act.
    Sec. 3855. Annual update to Congress on appropriate pediatric indication for certain OTC cough and cold drugs. Sec. 3856. Technical corrections. PART II—USER FEES Sec. 3861. Finding.
    Sec. 3862. Fees relating to over-the-counter drugs.

    So a Republican criticized Pelosi for something she did? Got it.

    But that is horrible because a Republican wanted to remove a regulation where as Pelosi wanted to cram through a whole boatload of NEW regulations, do I have that right? Remove regulations, which is what many Republicans ran on vs ram through a load of collectivism and onerous government oversight while holding the American people hostage and throwing a tantrum. Yep, totally the same thing.

    STFU
    I asked for neither your Opinion,
    your Acceptance
    nor your Permission.

    It's a House bill that was passed almost a year ago that the Senate didn't vote on but Pelosi was threatening to not pass the Senate coronavirus relief bill unless the Senate also included the House bill in the Senate bill.

    This is now the second time you have repeated actual fake news you read on CNN or a Facebook forward or something and ended up just making the Democrats look like absolute pieces of shit and ghouls.

    Good job there, Seran.

    You fucking idiot, if you even bothered to read the quoted text, it was Mitch McConnell who proposed and added the FDA Sunscreen Approval text, as well as several addendums regarding abstinence education.

    As I said, remove regulations vs add a wish list of collectivism BS. At no point did I address what the changes were. Your reading comprehension is now confirmed below that of a 5 yr old. And for the record, I will take funding abstinence education over adding idiotic Green New Deal anything. So, again, you are whining because a laundry list of Socialist wet dreams got axed while some serious Democrat pork remained and a very modest Republican addition was made. You really have no idea how the government works. Again I say:

    I see Seran is falling back on the "lash out at everyone who pointed out how wrong I was" tactic.

    The link you provided places the blame where it belongs, on Nancy Pelosi. Your spin that this was really McConnell's idea obviously came from somewhere else, because let's face it, Seran, you didn't think of it all on your own.

    You really are that stupid to link a copy of the House passage of the Senate bill and call that proof positive you're right? You couldn't be more wrong


    Sponsor: Sen. McConnell, Mitch [R-KY] (Submitted 03/25/2020) (Proposed 03/25/2020)
    Latest Action: 03/25/20 Amendment SA 1578 agreed to in Senate by Unanimous Consent. (All Actions)
    Plain and simple, Republicans wrote an incredibly partisan, business centric bill without Democratic involvement in conference. Senate Democrats dug in, while the House drafted actual language which would win bipartisan support. While in conference Sen. Mitch McConnell inserted additional language promoting movement and FDA adoption of a prior Republican drafted Senate Bill favoring sunscreen and certain other OTC formularees at the behest of lobbyists.

    Read the dates on the link I provided.

    This was a bill that was introduced in the House in 2019 and passed in the House in 2019. In case you're having trouble keeping up the Senate Wuhan virus relief bill was introduced and voted on a week ago in the year 2020.

    Seran, you're wrong here. But it's okay, we all make mistakes. Admit you were wrong and we can all move on. It would be better if you could also do the right thing and admit it was wrong of Democrats to demand the Senate approve this bill of theirs by holding the Wuhan virus relief bill hostage, but we both know you won't have that large of an epiphany.
