Rashida Tlaib is one of the most dangerous and controversial members of Congress.
With the coronavirus pandemic, Tlaib is looking to exploit the emergency to throw open the nation’s borders.
Rashida Tlaib pushed a coronavirus betrayal. This is how she sold out America.
Radical Democratic freshman Rashida Tlaib has come up with a solution to the novel coronavirus strain, COVID-19.
She has proposed a plan, much like the universal basic income plan that started with former presidential candidate Andrew Yang.
But her plan comes with a shocking clause.
The Daily Caller reports:
Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib proposed a plan that would have the U.S. Treasury provide what amounts to an emergency universal basic income (UBI) for every person in America until the coronavirus crisis ends.
The proposal, called the “Automatic BOOST to Communities Act,” would require the Treasury to issue two $1 trillion platinum coins, which would then be used to issue direct payouts to Americans using a pre-loaded U.S. debit card.
But this plan comes with a cost.
The fine print of the bill reveals something much more damaging to our country.
Everyone in the U.S. would receive $2,000 as an initial payment, then $1,000 per month until the coronavirus crisis has passed. The bill’s definition of “every person” includes non-citizens and residents of unincorporated territories or protectorates.
“In response to the Coronavirus crisis, the Automatic BOOST to Communities Act would immediately provide a U.S. Debit Card pre-loaded with $2,000 to every person in America,” the proposal’s summary reads. “Each card would be recharged with $1,000 monthly until one year after the end of the Coronavirus crisis.”
Tlaib’s plan would not help the American citizens in dire need, but would take valuable resources from them and distribute it to those that have entered this country illegally and unannounced.
The proposal described the “funding approach” as follows:
The Treasury Secretary would direct the U.S. Mint to issue two $1 trillion platinum coins, under the legal authority provided by 31 U.S.C. § 5112(k).
Congress would direct the Federal Reserve to purchase the newly issued coins at full face value.
The Federal Reserve would complete the purchase by crediting the U.S. Mint’s account at the Fed with $2 trillion in reserves.
The Fed would retain ownership over the two $1 trillion coins permanently in order to ensure its own balance sheet remains fully capitalized by the Treasury.
The Treasury Secretary would “sweep” the newly created reserve funds from the Mint’s account into the regular Treasury General Account.
The Treasury would make the funds available to the Bureau of the Fiscal Service to disperse to every person in America in the form of pre-paid U.S. Debit Cards.
Tlaib then went on to tweet about her support for her own plan, describing it as “truly universal.”

Tlaib even tried to get President Trump on board.
Hey @realDonaldTrump, let's provide relief from this crisis for people by giving pre-loaded debit cards to every person in America. No additional debt—we'll just mint two coins.#ABCAct #MintTheCoinhttps://t.co/v0gtfjBw7L

this dangerous bill will never pass.
This country needs to distribute whatever resources they can to the citizens in need, and be able to stimulate the already badly damaged economy.
