Apparently the committee will focus on how private industry is responding to the virus. If this continues to be the focus without shifting into another Trump administration investigation remains to be seen.
House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC) joined CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday to explain the focus of the newly-formed House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis, which Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) tapped him to chair. According to Clyburn, the goal of the committee is to "protect the American people."
"I think that is one of the reasons Speaker Pelosi decided that this committee was necessary. We, in the United States Congress, have oversight and we must perform that oversight," Clyburn explained. "And we will do that to make sure we save lives, that we save taxpayer money and she was very smart, I think, to pattern this committee after the Trump committee that was stood up in 1941."
Let's get this straight. The Democrats are trying to do everything they can to take care of the American people? If that's the case then why did Pelosi come in at the last minute and completely blow up the bipartisan, bicameral deal that was made without her? Oh. That's right. It's because she wanted to use this stimulus plan to fundamentally transform our country. Her wish list had ridiculous demands, like bailing out the USPS, upping the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour and offsetting airline emissions by 2025. Clyburn himself even said the Wuhan coronavirus relief package was the perfect opportunity to further their agenda.
The Democrats aren't looking to protect the American people. They're looking at protecting their party status and their position in government. They're doing everything in their power to push their radical agenda and move our country further left. The fact that they have to use a crisis to attempt to get it done shows just how unpopular their socialist ways really are.
