Beto Reveals Major Law He Vows to Pass When He Becomes President
Beto is out there pandering to anyone who will listen. He’s pulling such small crowds you have to believe he’ll anything to fill the seats. Well, he’s really done it this time! O’Rourke revealed a major law he would sign as president and it would cost America billions of dollars.
While speaking at the Nation Action Network’s convention on Wednesday, O’Rourke discussed his 2020 presidential campaign and the policies he would support if he become the 46th president.
O’Rourke was asked if he would sign Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s bill, which would consider reparation proposals for Africans-Americans.
“Yes, “O’Rourke said, endorsing the new policy that several other 2020 Democrats have gotten behind.
“Civil rights are not just those victories that began with at the outset of my comments, but the injustices that have been visited and continue to be visited on people,” he added.
He continued, “We will never get the change that we need to live up to the promise of this country. So absolutely, I would sign that into law.”
Early studies of this proposal estimate that it could cost the U.S. government billions of dollars to form commissions, investigate claims, identify people whose ancestors were slaves, and actually pay reparations to thousands of people.
O’Rourke is just one of many 2020 Democratic candidates that has endorsed the idea of reparations for African-Americans.
During a CNN town hall last month, Sen. Elizabeth Warren endorsed a House bill that would create a commission to study reparation proposals.
“I love the idea of this congressional commission,” the Massachusetts Democrat said at Jackson State University, a historically black school. “I believe it’s time to start the national, full-blown conversation about reparations.”
It’s 2019, how are we even talking about reparations. How do you even go about deciding who pays or is it just everyone?
