Mnuchin: “Poorly Managed States Deserve No Bail Out”

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin is rejecting calls from Democrat-run states for more federal bailout money, stating plainly that said governments shouldn’t be rewarded for spending their funds recklessly.

Predictably, the media narrative is once again suggesting that there is no other reason for the Trump Administration to take this position other than out of a position of greed and vengeance. But, let’s take a deeper look at the issue. The truth is that shelling out the blank checks Democrats from states like California want would be a slap in the face to states like Florida that were able to mitigate the effects of the novel coronavirus without going bankrupt.

We’ve been tracking the dishonesty and inconsistency of the progressive left with special attention ever since candidate Donald Trump and his wife came down that golden escalator preceding the 2016 election. In that time, we have documented the dis-earnest tactics of the anti-Trump Democrats as well as “never-Trumper” Republicans. One of the most outstanding phenomena we have noticed is the fact that Democrat policies have an overwhelming tendency to impoverish those living in their districts. This fact applies more to black Americans than to any other group. Though women, Hispanics, and other minorities are also disproportionally affected.

Black Americans living in Democrat strongholds are overwhelmingly worse off than those living in Republican-run cities and states. Admittedly, this is nothing new. We can trace the trend back to the early 1900s – if not all the way back to slavery.

But economically disastrous Democrat policies don’t just affect blacks and the poor. They affect entire cities and states. The direst case in point is a close tie between the human-feces-covered San Fransisco, the Tent-city littered downtown streets of LA, and the bullet-riddled ghettos of Chicago. All of this destitution, poverty, homelessness, drug addiction, and filth are the direct results of Democrat policies that ignore crime, disincentivize gainful employment, and wage war on the integrity of the family unit.

Now, predictably, the Democrats are asking for handouts from the Trump Administration to save them from their own ineptitude. Early on in the coronavirus epidemic, President Donald Trump made it clear that he would not bail out the leaders of states and cities that were suffering as a result of their intentionally bad policies.

Now, the President’s Treasury Sectary, Steve Mnuchin, has echoed this sentiment.

In an interview with Fox News Sunday, Mnuchin said, “We’ve been clear that we’re not going to bail out states that are poorly managed. We want to make sure that before we jump back in and spend another trillion worth of taxpayer dollars that we do it carefully. We’re willing to spend whatever it takes – but spend it carefully.”

He went on to comment that there is an unacceptable risk in not re-activating the economy. This is a subject that has been on the minds of conservatives who understand how wealth is created. Jobs from which people have been laid off will lose relevance as their customer base continues to be unattended to. This is due to the simple fact that when a product or service is no longer available, buyers tend to find other ways to fill the need — or become accustomed to doing without.

“There’s a considerable risk of not reopening, you’re talking about what would be permanent economic damage to the American public,” Mnuchin added. “We’re going to reopen in a very thoughtful way that gets people back to work safely, that has them at the appropriate social distance.”

In the meantime, Democrats and progressives have busied themselves accusing those who wish to reopen the economy of “wanting people to die.”

It’s almost as if Democrats want to get paid to not work or something.

    • Simon, Maybe you should be the one to hide in a hole. You don’t seem to understand Economics 101 or why the Blue states are suffering so much compared to the Red states. I have lived in California all my life and have seen what the Dems have done to our state. It is despicable and unconscionable!! They give away everything to the illegals, help them vote and work against the taxpayers here.

  1. This is sooo true.. Democrats garner everything for themselves and the party!! They cannot be trusted for anything!
    The sad fact is that these people in California, New York and other blue state want to flee to prosperous RED States..
    However they just move in and then vote the SAME STUPID STUFF that made them run in the first place… Try to
    turn the Red state to Blue state… I HATE DEMOCRATS..STAY WHERE YOU ARE..

    • I’LL PUT THIS VERY DIPLOMATICALLY: ALL COMMIE DEMORATS ARE LYING,THIEVING, DECEIVING,FRAUDULENT,IMMORAL,SOCIALIST,COMMIE,LIBERAL,SCUZZBALL, PARASITE,SCUM-SUCKING,SCUMBAG, LEACHING COCKROACHES. JUST PUTTING IT MILDLY.

      • Hey Mark, you took the words right out of my mouth. I second everything you wrote.
        To bad we can’t have all these comments published on the front page of every newspaper
        so the stupids out there who vote just to vote and don’t take the time to really know who they are voting for. They are the ones who sit at home and expect to get everything free and let someone else pay for it. Free Free, but nothing is free one way or another someone has to pay for it.

  2. II woke up this morning and see there is still a little common sense left in this Going Crazy World.
    Thank you Mr Mnuchin and the rest of the Adults in the room.

  3. THE DEMOCRATS IN THE BLUE STATES HAVE MISMANAGED THEIR IMPERIAL RULE TO THE POINT OF RUINATION FOR THE PEOPLE THEY REPRESENT. LIBERALISM IS A SICKNESS AND FAR TOO MANY ARE INFECTED WITH IT. IT’S MORE DANGEROUS THAN THE CHINESE VIRUS AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SHOULD SOCIAL DISTANCE THEMSELVES FROM IT!

  4. The Republican states saw the “good times” as a way to save for the “bad times.” The Demokratz saw the “good times” as never ending.
    This reminds me of the story of the “Little Red Hen.” She went out to find workers to prepare her fields for planting. The potential workers were too busy to work. She went out to find workers to plant her crops. Again, the potential workers were too busy to work. She went out to find workers to till her fields and tend the crops. Again, the potential workers were too busy to work. She went out to find workers to help harvest her crops and store them for the “bad times.” Again, the potential workers wee too busy to work.
    Then came the bad times. She was snug and warm in her house with food for the “bad times.” The starving lazes were kept demanding she share her food. lest she be accused of hoarding. She refused and merely smiled, snacking on her stores.
    Substitute Republicans for the “Little Red Hen,” and Demokratz for the “Potential workers.”

  5. I don’t care if its a red or blue state, If they have mismanaged their budgets then they should be left to fix things on their own. Tax payers in states that have been fiscally responsible should not have to save their sorry behinds. Maybe then the people of those states will start electing move conservative leaders.

  6. Amen to Sanity returning to the U.S . sane people work and try to help others in need; thru no fault or their own. Not lazy people with their hands out all the time, and then complain they did t get enough!

  7. The democrats who don’t want to come back to work should not get paid. But you know who controls that, your heartless greedy pelosi does. They don’t want to work but they will turn around and ask for a pay raise. California, New York, Chicago,
    no bail out monies for them. Let the ones who don’t want to work take their pay checks and bail them out. Nancy Pelosi’s drug dealing dad who heads the drug cartel let him take his drug money and bail out nancy’s California, and all it’s illegals.
    Of course the tax payers will get stuck with the bill once again.

  8. I am here in Montana and this state is caving in with poor and neglected infrastructure, high unemployment, and poor unsafe working conditions where the worker is at risk. The state government is difficult to reach. Installed a Obama fashioned computer system recently and that failed and is still failing! Unbelievable waste of government funds in this state

  9. This problem started back during the depression. When they started the welfare department. When the depression ended. The government couldn’t shut the valve off. Because, there were to many people on it and it would have sent the country backwards. And it continues. THEN, when Obama was in office. He promised free things that hurt more people than help them. Reason is? When people hear the word “FREE”. They jump at it with their hands out. Therefore, these demarates governor’s want people to depend on them. And how do you get people to depend on you? Through fear, lies and bullying with unconventional LAWS. Read Revelation! It spells it all out.

  10. Let them STAY broke! . . . they DESERVED it, and WE The People should NOT be responsible for their HORRIBLE leftist decisions. We shouldn’t be bailing out their horrible mistakes. One Wary Patriot. team Trump and his allies 2020.

  11. The democrats want WARM BODIES for the 2020 CENSUS. They want other world aliens, local aliens, and illegals counted to keep their power, and upset the next election.It is DELI GRADE BALONEY that they want to save anyone ,except themselves. There are more than enough, in fact too many, homeless, jobless, ill , AMERICANS who need help without them inviting all of SOUTH AMERICA HERE. That policy has bit them where they sit, and now, they want everyone else to bail them out. Lets go with , “DROP DEAD.” Perhaps if they end “SANCTUARY’ and ” ILLEGALS,” they can help THEIR OWN, and wont be in such a DEEP HOLE.

  12. The late British PM Margaret Thatcher said it best about socialism, “it always fails because they always run out of other taxpayer’s money to spend and not their own”!! Now in the 2020 election, they want us to create the same same problem all across our America with the same failing results!! It can only happen if we elect the criminal Democrat Party Mob in the 2020 election!!!….

  13. I can remember before the Democrats invaded Montana, and it government,Billings was a great city, and without worry to walk the side walks and at any time of day, and not lock your doors in your house or car. Now with rampant theft, assaults and transient population ,it has turned Billings into a Rat Hole and none of the public’s freedoms exist any longer. The police department ,after a major theft at my house, found the the thief, but did nothing, and to break the law again! And it happened again! Stealing property that the thief could get some change for at the local Pawn shop, scrap yard! Even the county law, was connected to firearm theft,and you can guess where that lead! To a dead end, until I saw the at a local dealer 7 years later, and then retrieved , with resistance from that same agency, but court resolved that issue. But this is where the Dems are leading this country!

  14. Most of the above comments should be printed in every major newspaper in our Country. 10 yrs ago I read a cartoon that asked why there are no simple current event tests given to people who wanted to vote. Why not?
    A Democrat would never be elected again . Think about it! God bless Smerica.

  15. NO BAILOUTS FOR DEMOCRATS WHO SQUANDERED THE MONEY FOR ILLEGALS AND CRIMINALS. YOU DID IT TO YOURSELVES, NOW SUFFER, OR WAKE UP AND DO SOMETHING TO CHANGE YOUR CRIMINAL ACTS AGAINST THE AMERICAN CITIZENS.

  16. Democrats squander the money, give it all away to illegals, then cry because they’re broke? Tough shit. Go ask the illegals for your money back, all they are doing is sending it back home, while living free on our dollars.

  17. I would not even think about bailing out any state that if money was given to them and they wasted that money on crap/junk, I would just say hell to any governor, state official, city official, or even city major and they would have to fend for themselves with NO money coming to them at all. I would if I was living in that state or city be up in arms and rid those people of wasting their taxpayers money on the crap/junk, PERIOD

  18. “It’s almost as if Democrats want to get paid to not work or something.” Hell, they never worked in the first place. Most of them have never earned their way in their entire lives. They are schiff.

  19. The democrats are an abomination to all Human Life on this planet, they are to lowest form of garbage I have ever witnessed in my entire life and it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if they actually walked over the line into instigating another American Civil War do to their Arrogant Stupidity!!!
    The only thing they know how to do is to cry, whine, complain about everything under the sun, fling accusations against others, fail to accept the fact that We, the People are NOT going to stand for their BULL SH** Much Longer as we have had enough of their Feces!!
    They are the foulest people wannabes I have ever seen come into light and they are enough to make maggots sick to their stomachs due to the way they are acting.
    Another one of their biggest problems is that they talk the talk but are too Damned big of cowards to Walk The Walk!!! I am a Vietnam VET and I have more respect for VC Charlie than I ever will for the democrats. At least VC Charlie was up front and open with his intentions and right out of the gate. They didn’t waste any time making their intentions clear and they were NOT Cowards to do so the way the democrats are!!!
    If it were up to me, I would make the democratic party Illegal as Hell and make it a felony offense to even be associated with them. Then, I would exile them from America with clear word of warning that should any one of them ever step foot on U.S. Soil again, they would spend the rest of their miserable lives behind bars.
    I have ZERO Respect for the democrats and Never again will I ever listen anything they have to say as they are like feces under my feet!!!!!! Do I sound a little radical?? Yes I do but, they have earned my Disrespect for them!!! This Vietnam VET is sick and tired of those Scumbags trying all they can to destroy what so many of our guys fought and died for in an attempt to keep our country free from any form of tyranny that those SCUMBAG democrats try to undo and destroy, like dancing on the graves of ALL of our fallen due to their lust and obsession for power over all of us when they are NOT worthy to even have a job of shoveling feces out of pig pens!!!!!!!

  20. Democratic states were broke before the Pandemic, don’t bail them out. most democratic states don’t know how to run their states that’s why there broke.

  21. Ironic how Democrat controlled states refuse to agree to government rules on immigration defying on every chance and constantly criticizing but when the chips are down they want the federal government to bail them out for their failure to take the necessary steps to survive. Some states like the state of Georgia have a balanced budget requirement therefore they should not have to support California who defy the federal government on many instances including supporting Illegals. They made their choice now they need to be made to live with it. No bailout for them period.

  22. THE ENTIRE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IN MY OPINION NEEDS TO RESIGN. THERE THE WORSE PARTY EVER. NANCY PELOSI IS A TOTAL MENTAL CASE AND NEEDS TO BE PUT INTO A MENTAL INSTUTITION. SHE’S BEEN OFF HER ROCKER FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS. HER (2) TWO PET MONKEY PUPPETS CHUCH SCHUMER AND BUGGED EYED ADAM SCHIFF SHOULD BE TOTALLY FORCED OUT OF AMERICAN POLITICS. THE DEMOCRATICE PARTY OF YESTER YEAR IS LONG GONE. NOW THE FAR LEFT IS MADE UP OF A BUNCH RADICAL HANDS OUT FOR MONEY AND ANYTHING FREE. JOBS, BENEFITS, HOUSING YOU NAME IT. ALL THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY WANTS IS VOTES, THEY DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT BROWN, BLACK OR ANYONE ELSE OF COLOR. IT’S ONLY ABOUT POWER!!!!. AS PEOPLE AND POLITICANS THEY ARE A TOTAL DISCRACE TO AMERICA. BY THERE SHOWN ACTIONS AND STATEMENTS THE HATE AMERICANS AND MOST OF ALL HATE AMERICA. REMEMBER EVERYONE IF YOU VOTE DEMOCRATIC BE PREPAIRED TO ACCEPT FULL GOVERNMENT DOMUNNENCE AS A 3RD WORLD COMMUNIST/SOCIALIST PARTY.

  23. Most of Democrat”s are taking everything they can from the American people they are supposed to help. But all they do is steal everything that the American people have worked for. God help the American people and help them open their eyes to see what the problems are when you vote Democrat. If nothing else changes then you get what you pay for. You reap what you sow.

  24. VOTE RED & PRAY
    demo/commies are broke and have been for years because they have had to pay their voters (illegalaliens, unemployed, felons, state employees, dead people, & etc.) tons of money and perks to get their votes. garbage collector in la, Calif makes $138,000 professors make $520,000 and in red state a CEO makes $125,000. rest my case!!!!.

  25. Logic would tell you that those States with the highest population growth should have the biggest percentage of wage earners to support these States with income taxes, yet the truth is when the population of these States are unemployed, on welfare, or homeless this can not be true. I first started voting Democrat because I understood the importance of Labor Rights and Personal Rights for a free society, however the Democrat Party I registered with to defend these Rights no longer exists. The Democrat Party has become what our Founding Fathers feared the most, the Party of Big Brother where government makes all the decisions without input from the people. Our government has became the Evil King the citizens Early Americans rebelled against because the people had no voice in government. The people then become political slaves. Sadly, the US Constitution and it’s Rule of Law, that was meant to protect the citizens; has become a political tool to suppress the people. Overtime, the government became the government for and by the politicians and the people are disregarded as simply the subjects. No different than a King and his subjects. The Oath of Office we and the US Constitution demand of our elected officials has become a formality and nothing more. Does the US Constitution demand those we elect have a (D), (R), or a (I) after their name to run for office? NO. It only demands we be US Citizens who comply with our US Constitution. It is politics that requires these initials after their names. Slavery in any form is evil, yet our government has made it’s people Political Slaves. Think about it. With every new regulation or restriction that removes our freedoms as citizens, more and more of our FREEDOM IS DIMINISHED. In less than 300 years the people of the US has become Political Slaves to the Legislative System. Had politicians not distorted our US Constitution for Political Gain this would have never happened. The First Amendment to our US Constitution starts out with the statement : “Congress shall make no law respecting…..”, yet Congress has made laws without the written power of our US Constitution to do so. The US was never meant to be a Political Correct Nation, it was meant to be a US Constitutional Correct Nation. The US Constitution was made THE LAW OF THE LAND for a reason. Rule of Law was meant to regulate our US Government, not the Political Parties. I do not care what Party you may represent because, like it or not, you and I are still Political Slaves to the system. A system created by politicians and not US Constitutional Patriots.

    WE CAN NOT STOP AND START OVER, BUT WE CAN DEMAND THOSE WE ELECT FOLLOW RULE OF LAW. If they do not, we have a responsibility to our fellow Americans to vote them OUT OF OFFICE.

    We are just votes away from full blown SOCIALISM in these United States. The easiest way to lose your FREEDOM is to give it away.

  26. There should a balancing between the two parties instead democrats are a dead weight dragging down any state they touch. The democrats are destructive in their management of governing the lives of folks. In short they should not govern at all. Their goal is failure, taking away the freedoms of people and serving themselves.

  27. A teacher in most NY counties makes over 100K a year after a few years of service. In Florida, the average is about half that. Understand of course that Individual counties salary/benefits are different and go up and down, so the figures I gave are only general averages. Now here is the 64,000 dollar question. Why should a teacher in Florida pay the vast difference in her salary and pension to the salary and pension of the NY teacher? These examples go on and on regardless of job specification.

  28. maybe if they watched the budget a little better they would not be in this situation . they are to take care of their states if they want money than let the federal government tell them how they can spend it , after all they don’t know how .democrats only like to line their own pockets , check and see what their net worth is and how they got it if they are billions in debt don’t tell me they did not see it happening , or maybe they did and just sat back took their pay moved money somewhere not to be found
