The Cornavirus bill, not anytime soon.

All those Democrat ‘priorities’ might just keep the coronavirus bill from passing

Democrats have always had, to put the term delicately, their “priorities.”

They’ve also got an ethos of never letting a crisis go to waste.


What it seems to be coming down to is Democrats seeking to use the coronavirus crisis as their own personal vehicle for advancing pet causes they can’t sell to voters in ordinary times.  There has been talk of abortion add-ons, for one.  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says she wants to use this opportunity to tack on free stuff such as ending evictions and rent subsidies.


Trump wants this package, and so do farsighted Republicans, because there’s a crisis on.  Yet Democrats are taking their sweet time, using the coronavirus as an occasion to throw in programs they have always been after yet have no particular resonance to the crisis at hand.

If they don’t pass the big package, they will have to pass small individually targeted ones.  Maybe that would actually best.

What it really shows is that Democrats are fundamentally unserious about the coronavirus response package, as they are prioritizing their hobbyhorses over the needs of the people.  It shows just how unfit they are to rule.
