cash 100-dollar billThe head of a pro-Israel ministry says it is outrageous that Democrats were able to shove some of their left-wing pork projects into the coronavirus relief package.

Last week, the House approved $2 trillion dollar rescue package, tossing a life preserver to a U.S. economy and health care system left flailing by the coronavirus pandemic. President Donald Trump quickly signed the bill into law but Republicans had to approve Democratic pork projects such as public broadcasting and the arts.

Laurie Cardoza-Moore, founder of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, calls the relief package a “shot in the arm” for Americans, and she credits President Trump and Congress for working together.

“And what are the Democrats doing? They're putting their pork projects into this package,” she complains.

Cardoza-Moore adds that a portion of the economy was completely left out of the relief package: non-profit organizations, which account for a number of small businesses with employees on payroll.

“And we're not included,” she says, “but all of these different art foundations? It is outrageous.”
