We can now print something that Kamala is good at. Being a Porker. No nothing about her weight or facial looks. Check this out from Business Wire.
After the votes were tallied, the dishonor went to Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), with 38 percent of the vote, a double-digit victory over the runner-up, incoming House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), whose absurd proposal to bring back pork-barrel earmarks earned him 27 percent.
Senator Harris was named August 2018 Porker of the Month for proposing a bill that would subsidize rent with taxpayer dollars. Her bill would have encouraged the same behaviors that led to the student loan bubble. A February 2017 study by the New York Federal Reserve found that as students took out larger federally-subsidized loans, colleges and universities hiked tuition, blunting the benefits for students and increasing the burden on taxpayers. The same would be true in the rental market. Tenants would be incentivized to rent the most expensive allowable properties and landlords would be able to spike rents without facing a financial downside because taxpayers would foot the increased bill. Conservative estimates put the price of the subsidy at $76 billion per year, and those costs would surely rise, like other federal programs intended to help the poor.
Why are Liberals and Progressives so good at spending other peoples money? And who is Citizens Against Government Waste ? CAGW is the nation’s largest nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in government. Porker of the Year is a dubious honor given to a lawmaker, government official, or political candidate who has shown the most blatant disregard for the interests of taxpayers throughout the year.
In closing, not only is she a Porker, her fellow Senator from California said this when asked who she favored in 2020. “I was asked who I favor, and right now it’s Joe Biden,” Feinstein said, the Los Angeles Times reported.
