Reparations Bill Wins New Momentum in Congress

WATCH: Ben Shapiro on slavery reparations and 2020 Democrats

The polls overwhelmingly show that the majority of Americans are not in favor of the government paying out reparations for slavery. Don’t tell that to Democrats. The left is adamant that we punish the American taxpayer for something that happened 150 years ago.

This used to be a fringe issue that most people didn’t take seriously.

However, Democrats running for president in 2020 are starting to talk about reparations.

Not only that, a bill related to reparations is gaining momentum in Congress.

From The Hill:

House legislation to form a commission to study whether black Americans should receive reparations for slavery is getting a significant boost from Democrats on the presidential campaign trail.


Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), the head of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), suggested that action on a reparations measure sponsored by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) is all but certain, with Democrats now in control of the lower chamber and the idea gaining prominence on the national stage.

Jackson Lee’s bill would form a commission to study the issue of reparations but does not call for black Americans to receive payments.

“I don’t think there needs to be pressure, we’re in charge,” Bass said. “It’s being discussed, I’m sure we’re going to get there.”

Obviously, this would be nothing but lip service. Giving taxpayer money away wouldn’t solve anything. It would just make bleeding hearts feel better about themselves.

It’s just a commission for now and you would think that this bill would never get through Congress but stranger things have happened.

Beto O’Rourke came out the other day and basically said he’s for this idea and Al Sharpton has been pushing it as well.

Stay tuned.
