The Soros funded Democrat think tank Center for American Progress (CAP), has introduced a massive wish-list for the next coronavirus relief bill, which they say should cost more than the previous $2.2 trillion package signed by President Trump last month.
Among CAP’s wishes are stimulus checks for illegal aliens, increased abortion funding, minimum wage hikes, mail-in voting provisions, universal housing, releasing massive amounts of imprisoned criminals and a national disease surveillance program.
Looking at the Democrats list of demands for the next coronavirus relief, bill it’s hard not to remember the old Democrat adage of ‘never let a good crisis go to waste’.
Representative Susan wild (D-PA) is linked to CAP in multiple ways. CAP has publicly thrown their support behind Wild and her Congressional staff is widely composed of former and current CAP members.
CAP is demanding that stimulus payments in the next round of legislation must include: “undocumented individuals and mixed-status families where even just one parent is filing their taxes with an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number and the other parent and all children have an SSN.”
CAP also wants any upcoming coronavirus relief bill to: “protect and expand access to reproductive health care,” particularly abortion. Their plan states that:
Reproductive health care is essential health care. Congress must act to expand access to reproductive health services, including abortion and contraception, especially given the unknowns about how pregnancy intersects with the coronavirus.
CAP is also calling for an increase to the minimum wage in the next coronavirus relief bill, stating that those defined as essential worked get paid a minimum wage of at least $15 an hour and that they have the ability to join a union.
Representative Susan Wild (D-PA) has supported minimum wage hikes despite warnings from expert economists that such policies would lead to disastrous economic consequences. Such as hurting small businesses, increased unemployment and higher costs of living for the working poor and those living in minority communities, and forcing businesses towards automation, leading to massive layoffs and shipping American jobs overseas.

Lehigh Valley business owners feel neglected by Rep. Susan Wild in her lackluster response to COVID-19 and its impact on the local economy.
Susan Wild has been eerily quiet since the announcement from Governor Tom Wolf (D-PA) that all non essential businesses shut down “indefinitely”. Since the announcement, Wild has not held any telephone town halls and has many business owners wondering if she is doing anything to help them during the unprecedented state-wide shut down.
Rep. Wild was quick to applaud Governor Tom Wolf’s decision to mandate that all ‘non essential businesses close’ on her Social Media pages. Lacking from her Social Media pages and website was any detailed plan or statement about how those businesses would be helped in order to survive the indefinite shut down. Wild failed to introduce any legislation or advocate for any type of policy that would have given business owners peace of mind before she quickly announced her support for Governor Wolf’s mandate.
We examined Wild’s website for any information as to her standing on the Coronavirus relief bill being proposed by the Senate which would give small businesses across the country the help and support they need in order to remain solvent through this crisis, which many experts believe could be last until May. We could not find anything on her website that had to do with the current proposed bill.
Along with zero information regarding her stance on the Senate bill, there is also currently zero information regarding Rep. Wild’s stance on Nancy Pelosi’s pork-barrel spending bill in the House, which allocates billions of dollars for programs that have absolutely nothing to do with the Coronavirus crisis. In fact, we couldn’t find a statement or even a single sentence that discussed what she is currently working on in the House. Why is Rep. Wild refusing to make any announcements regarding plans to help deliver much needed relief to Lehigh Valley businesses, workers and families?
Could it be that Rep. Wild is allowing partisan politics to stand in the way of stepping up in the way that her constituents deserve? It is becoming abundantly clear that Lehigh County and the entire 7th District is suffering through this crisis because of a do-nothing Democrat Congresswoman. The people of PA-7 deserve someone who will fight for them and do what it takes to put politics aside, stand up to the establishment and get the job done.
Call Susan Wild and tell her you want results, not just words.

“Democrats don’t own us” is their slogan according to the new group, Latino Republicans of Lehigh County. The new political group focused on attracting more Latino support in Lehigh County, mainly the city of Allentown says that Democrat’s have failed them over decades of being in power. Their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages focus on the many failures of Democrat politicians to improve the lives of Latino American’s despite what they call ‘endless promises’ from Democrats.
The group is also clear about it’s support for President Donald J. Trump who they say has fulfilled his promises to their community. Looking at the numbers, they aren’t wrong. Despite the main stream medias attempts to cover up President Trumps achievements, it’s indisputable that Trumps policies are working for all Americans, especially Latino’s.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Hispanic and Latino unemployment has hit the lowest point ever during Trumps Presidency at 3.9% (Sept. 2019) and currently sits at 4.2%. During the Obama administration Hispanic and Latino unemployment hit near records highs. For example, in August of 2009 Hispanic and Latino Unemployment was 13%. The number never fell below 6% during Obama’s time in office. Donald Trumps unemployment numbers speak for themselves and when compared to Obama’s numbers, its clear that policies matter.
With Hispanic and Latino unemployment hitting record lows, its no wonder why groups like Latino Republicans of Lehigh County are popping up all over the country. Their social media presence is also surging, garnering hundreds of followers on various pages in only a few short days.
Latino Republicans say that Trump is not only fulfilling his promises with regards to the economy, but also crime, education and other important issues.
