    Default Trump raiding HEATING OIL assistance for the poor to pay for CORONAVIRUS

    I have no idea what he is allowed to do. I have no idea if the reserves are such that maybe if much of the country is having a milder than normal season, less funds are required? But's only FEB! Don't hit them yet. Why doesn't he raid the SECRET SERVICE PROTECTION FUND for his hundreds of trips to his OWN PROPERTIES. They are useless and EXPENSIVE. He's been in what 3 years and a month? He has spent 1/3 of that time (not updated this past month for his several trips to FLORIDA) on Trump properties.


    NOT TO MENTION HIS POLITICAL RALLIES ALL PAID FOR BY US!

    Trump reportedly trying to siphon $37 million from heating assistance for the poor to fund coronavirus response

    By Jake Johnson,



    “Because if we have to prevent the spread of an infectious disease, we might as well take the opportunity to make some poor families freeze.”
    Critics are denouncing it as an unconscionable attack on the nation’s poor after reporting revealed President Donald Trump has floated plans to shift $37 million away from a federal program that provides heating assistance for low-income families to help fund the White House’s response to the growing coronavirus threat.

    The Washington Post‘s Greg Sargent and Paul Waldman reported Tuesday that the White House informed congressional Democrats that it wants to transfer “$37 million to emergency funding for the coronavirus response from the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, or LIHEAP, which funds heating for poor families.

    “After dithering for weeks as the coronavirus spread, the Trump administration has now decided to pay for its belated response by cutting funding for heating assistance for low-income families.”

    —Evan Hollander, spokesman for House Appropriations Committee Democrats

    Not a lot of fun but people can always turn the heat way down and wear a sweater , put on another blanket like we did back in the energy crisis in the mid 70,s. Back then the peanut farmer was demanding people set the thermostat to 62!

    Trump and his swamp of thieves and low-lives do not care if you and yours literally eat shit, breath toxic air, drink poison water and contract an infectious disease. EVERY policy and budget decision proves my statement accurate.

    Dear Red-State Trump Voter,
    Let’s face it, guys: We’re done.


    It is a tragedy that so much of the work that so many men and women toiled at for so long to make this a better country, and a better world, has been thrown away, leaving us all in such needless peril.

    This is why our separation in all but name is necessary.

    Of course it's bullshit Loony Central spends every fucking day posting from Raw Sewage, she's a fucking geriatric lunatic.
    .

    80,000 Americans died and 900,000 were hospitalised just two years ago from A(H3N2), why didn't you arseholes call for the total destruction of the world's economic system then? I hope you have plenty of time to ponder over that when you all lose your houses, jobs and relationships!

    When regulations are slashed due to corrupt cronyism that is what you are supporting. Not very bright to trust a grifter and thief who would rip you off at his bogus university if given the opportunity. Or do believe that Trump would have spared you and your credit card? LMAO

    In NY we look at that as a hillbilly sucker taken in by a city slicker con artist.

    We should raise your taxes.
    Influenza 2020: 242,330 confirmed cases and 24,000 deaths - Mortality rate = 9.9%

    Coronavirus 2020: 311,637 cases and 9,620 deaths - Mortality rate = 2.7%

    They should be paying for their own heating oil. At some point, people have to start doing for themselves.

    Aren't lefties regularly saying they'd pay more in taxes if it meant the poor received help with (fill in the blank).

    Better yet, if Centerlft is that concerned, he could help them without his taxes being raised.

    Or these bleeding hearts that think someone else's taxes should be raised to fund it could personally foot the bill on behalf of them.
