(TargetLiberty.org) – President Biden is busy stacking up a staggering $1.9 trillion he plans to blow on government handouts – but already a group of top Democrats are pushing him to throw away even more cash. It seems no amount of spending will ever be enough for the Left.
Ten leading Dems, including Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR), Bernie Sanders (D-VT) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH) – who between them chair the Senate Finance, Budget and Banking committees – have written an open letter to Biden demanding a huge new program of handouts. Their headline wants are recurring stimulus checks and an extension of the enhanced unemployment payments brought in last year.
What comes after Covid relief? 10 Democrats are planning for another stimulus package which would extend unemployment benefits and offer recurring stimulus checks. @ylanmui has the story. https://t.co/YRXZJ7hjUH pic.twitter.com/ExOCGwisbm

Stimulus checks have been criticized by many economists as an inefficient way to distribute money – many Americans who didn’t need government handouts got the checks anyway. A bigger concern is that the government has already run up a mountain of extra debt dealing with the COVID crisis and is now planning to borrow even more. This is the worst time to be discussing a new wave of handouts.
