Image result for dems want reparationsMembers of the Congressional Black Caucus and other Democrats this week re-introduced legislation that would set up a commission to consider whether reparations should be paid to black Americans for slavery.


Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., has proposed the bill in each Congress for at least the last two decades.


A description of the bill said the legislation would set up a commission to both examine the possibility of reparations, but also an apology for the "racial and economic discrimination against African-Americans."


It's a response to the "fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States."

Give me a BREAK ! 

    Ok IMHO we give reparations. On condition those that take it. Give up their American citizenship, passport and immigrate to Liberia the country that was made for them long ago ! That will stop this non-sense dead in it's TRACKS ! We'll hear no MORE from those crying for reparations.

  Reparations were paid in BLOOD on the battlefields of the Civil War. By both sides ! Of course this comes from one of the most corrupt black politicians in DC.

Amen !

Yes,I want reparations for what these miscreants like Conyers have done to our country.

Ok, when they return all the money they have gotten for welfare, healthcare, EITC tax credits, food stamps, education funding, housing subsidies, free phones etc etc

Don't forget years of Affirmative Action where priority was given in hiring to color of skin vs actual job qualifications. Need to pay back all the talented people that were denied fruits of their hard work and talents so minimally qualified people of color could be hired. Also reparations should be paid to those of us that had to put up with these affirmative action hires attitude of I don't need to perform at a high level to stay working here because I will pull the race card. So those of us had to pick up their slack and performance gaps to keep our company afloat!

  

this is just pathetic...all they want is free money

how about doing away with  social security and returning the money to it's rightful  owners

let's see tax statements from the members of the congressional black caucus

Along with my guns, "out of my cold, dead hands!"

He should send the bill to the tribal chiefs in Africa who sold their people into slavery

Not this again!

First, there are no slaves alive... not even second generation survivors of slavery...

Next, the Black community has been receiving reparations since 1964, thru various Civil Rights Acts and Programs.  They have been the benefactors of massive welfare forums... housing, food, education, transportation, medical, etc.  Congress has passed various pieces of legislation which promote affirmative action including ... the Civil Rights Act, the Equal Opportunity Employment Act, Affirmative Action programs, set asides for minority businesses and government contractors, SBA cut outs and other programs, specifically designed to provide financial and other advantages to Blacks and their businesses. The Black community is a privileged minority which has enjoyed trillions of dollars in government reparations... it is time that these programs are closed... stopped not expanded.

Finally, our forefather's paid reparations, in the form of blood and treasure, during the Civil War... 600K dead and millions more crippled, the South in ruins, taking it nearly 100 years to recover.  I would think that any reparations owed have been more than satisfied. 

It is disgraceful how some elements of our society believe they are owed  a living... claiming reparations from those who never owned a slave. It is further telling, how many of the Blacks today have NO ROOTS in America's slave days... because their families arrived in the US after the civil war... but rail about non-existent claims of injury and call for reparations. 

These individuals are of the worst sort... and need to be soundly and roundly told NO.  If there is any slavery practiced in the world today it is happening in Africa... Black on Black slavery.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
