The reason Democrats want to abolish the Electoral College is that it prevents a few states with large population centers from enslaving the other states. Tragically, sometimes Democrats win even with the Electoral College. That’s why Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill includes a $350 billion blue state jackpot.
The money will supposedly compensate these states for revenue lost during the largely senseless lockdowns. The lockdowns were more draconian in blue states, which tend to be run by power-mad tyrants. Red states prefer limited government, so the lockdowns have been less severe, causing less financial damage. The lockdowns have not led to improved protection from COVID-19.
Given its rapacious taxation, why does California need to be bailed out by free states? As related by BPR, Steve Hilton notes…
…that tax revenues for the state’s general fund in 2020 were 30 percent “above forecast with the tax revenues through November 2020 actually higher” than in 2019 “when there was no pandemic and no lockdowns.”
The point isn’t to help ordinary Californians. If Democrats cared about that, they wouldn’t have inflicted such absurd COVID-19 tyranny.
Much of our money will go to the only entity as greedy and pernicious as Big Government: Big Unions.
Hilton then cited reports claiming that California’s government spends lavishly on “luxury health insurance subsidies” per retired state worker and each of their dependents, about $9,000 and $8,000 annually, respectively.
“That is on top of what they already get through the state’s version of Medicare,” he said, adding that amounts to about $5 billion annually without even taking in costs for current, active state workers.
Then there are the pensions:
Hilton then noted that pensions for retired government workers are also astronomical, citing a 2018 report that said a former Los Angeles assistant fire chief made an after-tax pension income of $1.4 million the previous year.
Why should Texans and Floridians working hard to make ends meet be forced to finance the gold-plated benefit packages of public sector workers in California? Because elections have consequences that are unpleasant for regular Americans when Democrats win.
“That’s what the $350 billion blue state bailout in Biden’s relief bill is all about… It’s a pay-off. A pay-off to the government unions that fund and control the Democrats,” Hilton continued.
If Democrats follow through on their plans to ban independent employment, potentially destroying tens of millions of lives, it will be because unions want it to be illegal to work except under union control.
Other densely populated deep blue states that will be bailed out by the coronavirus looting spree at the expense of more responsible states include New York, Illinois, and New Jersey, all of which have run up massive debts that local Democrats want someone else to pay down for them.
The “relief” is a wealth transfer from red states to the blue states that currently rule them. If it happens once, it is robbery. If it keeps happening, it is slavery.
