Democrats Set to Send Monthly Checks Out to Certain Americans

Where is the outrage?!

With the next round of coronavirus stimulus payments sorted out, (at least for the most part), the Democrats appear to have a new way cooked up to redistribute our tax dollars, and it’s being largely ignored by the mainstream media.

The latest round of coronavirus relief, which weighs in at nearly $2 trillion, was heavily criticized by both Republicans and moderate Democrats, as being an extremely large and unwieldy bill.

Now, with the left moving to make monthly payments to some citizens, many are wondering where is the outrage?

The package also “includes a plan to temporarily raise the child tax credit that could end up permanently changing the way the country deals with child poverty,” The Associated Press reports. Most parents will get monthly payments of up to $300 for each child 5 and under and $250 for children 6 to 17.

“The child benefit has the makings of a policy revolution,” The New York Times reports. “It is essentially a guaranteed income for families with children,” aiding “more than 93 percent of children” in the U.S. A recent study found it will reduce child poverty by 45 percent, and more among Black families. Democrats intend to make the one-year benefit permanent.

“Opposition has been surprisingly muted,” the Times reports. No Republicans will vote for the bill, but Biden is about to sign “the greatest expansion of the welfare state since LBJ,” Politico‘s Playbook said Monday. “How did Democrats win this fight over welfare while barely firing a shot?”
Some have suggested that race could be playing a role in the subdued discussion, given that rural white families will make up a large portion of the public who receive the checks.   This differs greatly from previous discussions regarding welfare that took place over the course of the last few decades.
