Grassley op-ed: Coronavirus-damaged businesses deserve financial relief

Source: Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA)

April 17, 2020

For the first time in our nation’s history, a pandemic has closed the economy, shutting down businesses, schools and our way of life.

“Republicans and Democrats need to come together and help the hardworking American people and small businesses that are suffering as a result of this pandemic. We need to pass an interim emergency funding package that replenishes funding for and guarantees eligibility and access to key Small Business Administration programs that assist farmers, family, women, minority and veteran-owned small businesses and nonprofits in rural, tribal, suburban and urban communities across our country. We also need to provide desperately needed resources to the frontlines of this crisis, including production and distribution of national rapid testing and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Now is not the time for partisan bickering.” 

-- U.S. Representative Vincente Gonzalez (D-TX, 15th), April 16, 2020

 

“President Trump did the right thing in withholding funding from the World Health Organization (WHO) and he should be thanked by every American. WHO frequently relayed false statements by China and joined the coverup of the contagiousness to humans and deadliness of the disease. The United States should not fund WHO again until when and if it undergoes major reforms and gets new leadership.

It is encouraging to see our President put the lives of Americans first throughout this crisis, instead of throwing away hundreds of millions of dollars each year on an organization that helped create a crisis by applauding lies from the source of the current pandemic.”
-- U.S. Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX, 1st), April 15, 2020

 

ICYMI – Video: Vice News Featuring Senator Gillibrand: ‘How Congress Gets Away With Insider Trading Even Though It's Against The Law’

Source: Senator Kirsten E.Gillibrand (D-NY)

April 17, 2020

In case you missed it, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand appeared on Vice News this week and called for members of Congress to stop profiteering on the COVID-19 health crisis by buying and selling stocks while privy to non-public information. Senator Gillibrand has been one of the most vocal advocates for transparency and accountability in the Senate. In 2012, Gillibrand authored and passed the STOCK Act to effectively close loopholes allowing members of Congress to use insider information, gained through their official duties, to personally profit.

Gardner Commends New Assistance for Agriculture Producers

Source: Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO)

April 17, 2020

“Times like these remind us how blessed we are to have farmers and ranchers in Colorado and across the nation working day and night to provide food for the American people,” said Senator Gardner. “I’ve called on the USDA to provide as much relief and support as possible for agriculture producers in Colorado who are facing new disruptions because of COVID-19, and I’m encouraged by the creation of this new program. We must do everything possible to support farmers and ranchers through this pandemic to keep our domestic and global food supply secure.”

Gallego & House Dems Urge New PPP Rules Requiring Equitable Lending from Banks

Source: The Ponder News

April 18, 2020

Congress established the PPP to help small businesses avoid staff reductions during the coronavirus crisis. However, SBA and Treasury expanded lending participation to all federally insured banks without including rules to prohibit exclusionary and inequitable practices. As large banks limited applications to high-value existing business customers, many small businesses were denied service by the largest lenders, and as a result, small banks and community lenders have been overwhelmed with applicants denied by other banks.

“Today, I am honored to be chosen by President Trump to serve on this important Congressional task force focused on the best way to reopen our economy and recover from the economic impacts of the coronavirus. Our country’s recovery from this pandemic will take all of us working together to overcome the threat it poses to our health and the economy.

“This Congressional task force will open up a crucial dialogue between the President, senior Administration officials, and both Republicans and Democrats in Congress on how best to reignite our country’s economy. This task force, coupled with the great work of the President’s ‘Opening Our Country Council,’ which includes leaders from our area like Ross Perot Jr. and Marilyn Hewson, will create a partnership of public and private leaders unlike any we’ve seen before.

“Thanks to the leadership of President Trump, our economy was incredibly strong before the beginning of this crisis. We must work together to make sure it comes back, stronger than ever, and I am excited to be part of the team that is working to make that happen.” -- U.S. Representative Kay Granger (R-TX, 12th), April 16, 2020

“I look forward to working with President Trump and the other members of the Task Force to find ways to safely reopen the economy. We must go on offense against the coronavirus by expanding our capability for widespread testing and producing effective therapies and vaccines.

“There are better days ahead. Americans have always overcome challenges and I’m confident we will do so once again.”

-- Senator Lindsey Graham (R - SC), April 16, 2020

 

“I’m extremely honored to be named to President Trump’s Opening Up America Again Congressional Group. I will be working closely with President Trump and his administration to reopen our nation and reignite the economic vitality our country has enjoyed under his leadership. I have full confidence in President Trump as he leads our nation through this pandemic. I’m excited to serve on this new task force and look to advancing his America First vision for our great nation as we work to build an even brighter future for all Americans.” -- U.S. Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL, 1st), April 16, 2020

 

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Says “Outrageous” for Pentagon to Push for Weakening Regulations That Will Open Corporate Revolving Door

Source: U.S. Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI, 2nd)

April 17, 2020

“It is outrageous the Pentagon is pushing Congressional leaders behind closed doors to reverse safeguards Congress put in place to prevent the revolving door of Department of Defense retirees taking lucrative jobs in the Defense industry as lobbyists. Instead of opening the door to more corporate profiteering on the taxpayers’ dime, we should be strengthening our laws to end corruption and slam the revolving door shut,” said Rep. Tulsi Gabbard.

“The SBA has processed more than 14 years’ worth of loans in less than 14 days.  The Paycheck Protection Program is saving millions of jobs and helping America’s small businesses make it through this challenging time.  The EIDL program is also providing much-needed relief to people and businesses.

“By law, the SBA will not be able to issue new loan approvals once the programs experience a lapse in appropriations. 

“We urge Congress to appropriate additional funds for the Paycheck Protection Program—a critical and overwhelmingly bipartisan program—at which point we will once again be able to process loan applications, issue loan numbers, and protect millions more paychecks.

“The high demand we have seen underscores the need for hardworking Americans to have access to relief as soon as possible.  We want every eligible small business to participate and get the resources they need.” -- U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin and U.S. Small Business Administration Administrator Jovita Carranza, April 15, 2020

"I am proud to be a part of the bipartisan task force advising President Trump on reopening our economy. We had a productive conversation during our first call today. COVID-19 has hurt Nebraska families, businesses, and our state’s economy. Working together, we can develop safe first steps to begin getting people back to work.” -- Senator Deb Fischer (R - NE), April 16, 2020.

Trump Sends Funds Meant for Pro-Abortion WHO to Samaritan’s Purse, Red Cross to Fight Coronavirus

WHO has been accused of lying to the world about the coronavirus, defending Chinese propaganda about its origins, and it has come under fire for saying killing babies in abortions is somehow an essential procedure as the world deals with the coronavirus pandemic.

Just found out my cousin and Great Uncle have contracted the virus. Please be in prayer for them. My Uncle is one of the "vulnerable". So far, my Aunt has not contracted it.

So, for those people posting "Do you even know someone who has it?" -- The answer is yes, In fact. I do.

And for those of you who think that just because you are Christian, you won't contract it, my Uncle is a pastor.

 

While I agree that America needs to go back to work, I understand the need for the phasing in process that is being encouraged at the White House. Granted, many Americans have enough common sense to do what they should do to stop the spread of the virus. It's those who don't that concern me. 

Nevada, which is roughly twice the size of New York on the geographical map, yet only has a portion of it's population, only has about 3500 cases of the virus currently. This is one of the states that Trump was talking about that could possibly re-open immediately.

When Today's Trucking Reader Dwayne Rae of Owen Sound, Ont., saw Today's Trucking Editor Peter Carter's list of his 10 favorite Truckin' Songs, Rae responded with both barrels. "Why stop at 10," he asked, "when there are so many great trucking songs out there to choose from?" In response, Editor Carter conceded. "Clearly, Rae's on top of this game and his list includes some obvious choices that I overlooked completely. Especially Bud The Spud by Stompin' Tom. How'd I miss that?"
