‘ECONOMIC JUSTICE ACT’: Schumer Reveals $350 BILLION Plan to Fight ‘Systemic Racism’

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.16.20

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer unveiled his $350 billion plan to fight “systemic racism” in America Thursday; introducing new legislation called the ‘Economic Justice Act.’

“The Economic Justice Act calls for 10 major investments over the next five years to help communities of color with child care, health care, jobs programs, infrastructure improvements and housing assistance,” reports Fox News.

“Senate Democrats framed their proposal as a downpayment on calls to address systemic racism and economic disparities that have been spotlighted in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and death of George Floyd. There’s a growing movement underway for Congress to tackle the disparities through slavery reparations to African Americans,” adds Fox.

“Long before the pandemic, long before this recession, long before this year’s protests, structural inequalities have persisted in health care and housing, the economy and education,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.,  said in a statement. “COVID-19 has only magnified these injustices and we must confront them with lasting, meaningful solutions that tear down economic and social barriers, and reinvest in historically underserved communities. The Economic Justice Act is a needed step in a long journey to address systematic racism and historic underinvestment in communities of color.”

CHAOS NYC: Rioters Loot Manhattan Stores, De Blasio Describes Situation as ‘Limited Protest Activity’

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.01.20

Rioters smashed windows and looted stores in Manhattan late Sunday night after assembling for citywide protests following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis; a situation Mayor Bill de Blasio described as “limited protest activity.”

“Fox News crews on the scene in SoHo reported hundreds of people stealing from luxury stores – including Chanel and Dior – for hours on Sunday night going into the early hours of Monday morning. The looters were seen piling shoplifted merchandise into vehicles while others rode off with the merchandise in black garbage bags balanced on CitiBikes,” reports Fox news.

 

“Most of the day we had large crowds throughout the city in multiple boroughs [on Sunday]. But when it got dark, things changed and it changed rapidly,” Shea said on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” on Monday morning. “We anticipated it, but you saw large groups of people had no inclination to all this protest once it got dark, particularly in the area of SoHo between Canal and West Broadway. We had a number of stores broken into.”
