It Figures…

These two uniParty swamp dwellers.

Dingell and fellow U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, are among a bipartisan group in the House and Senate who last week introduced legislation to authorize the State and Municipal Assistance for Recovery and Transition Fund, which would provide $500 billion in emergency funding to states, counties and municipalities.

It would supplement the $150 billion Congress provided to assist state and local governments in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.

“People don’t understand the basic necessities that local government provides,” Dingell said. “They take for granted what local governments provide them.

Wrong! That’s theft of other people’s money you old entitled mentality Gorgon. Fact is the feds have already handed Michigan $3.8 Billion dollars in relief. Still having budget shortfalls? Go complain to the greasy-forehead lying governor on a power trip in your own Party that created them and keeps extending the misery, Debbie.

Mr. President, DO NOT BAILOUT these loser Michigan Democrats.

    They're not complaining about not getting any enough money (which they essentially "borrowed" from those of us who actually work), they're complaining about not being being able to spend it where they want.

    Funny, how they don't want to address the literal elephant in the room?

      They are complaining about not getting enough money, but funny should you also not mention where the Democrats want to spent this round of money.

      Financial disclosures reveal that Peters collects more than $50,000 a year from the Michigan state pension fund, a benefit accrued thanks to his eight years in the state legislature. Peters has given no sign he will forgo these payments even as nearly 900,000 Michiganders have lost their jobs in the last two months.

      Peters's payments contribute to the obligations of the Michigan state pension system, which ranked as only the 31st-best funded in the nation. Peters and his Democratic colleagues have pressed for billions in federal dollars to shore up states' revenue streams—money, congressional Republicans have argued, that would help state governments paper over irresponsible management of their retirement schemes.

      The senator collected $50,207 from the Michigan state pension fund in 2018, according to his financial disclosures. That figure is just shy of the state's median income. Between 2013 and 2018 Peters received over $235,000 from the Michigan pension system.

      Peters also receives an annual congressional salary of $174,000. When a local news anchor asked whether he would forgo that income for the year, Peters demurred. He also commands substantial personal wealth: The nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics estimates his net worth to be almost $4.4 million as of 2018.

      Democrats are despicable.

      Also, told you all before why Whitmer wanted the vaping ban. It's due to the massive bond debt Michigan holds and declining tobacco settlement monies.
