Elizabeth Warren is running a losing campaign for the White House and now creating wild policy proposals to pander to voters.
And her latest idea is her worst one yet.
Elizabeth Warren’s latest plans for reparations will make you furious.
Giving special groups government handouts has become Warren’s newest campaign strategy.
First, Warren announced a plan to forgive student loans in order to pander to college students.
Now, she’s proposing “reparations” to LGBT couples that were not able to file taxes as married couples prior to 2013.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., reintroduced a bill on the campaign trail this week, which could mean $57 million in tax refunds for married LGBT couples.
The Refund Equality Act, which was originally introduced in 2017, would allow LGBT couples who were married prior to the 2013 Supreme Court strike-down of the Defense of Marriage Act in U.S. v. Windsor to amend tax returns from the time that they were married. Prior to 2013, 10 states had legalized same-sex marriage, but were required to file their federal taxes as individuals.
Following the 2013 Supreme Court’s decision, married same sex couples from those 10 states were permitted to change their previous tax returns from individual to joint, which entitled them to some federal tax relief.
Warren’s outright bribery to the LGBT community is coming out of nowhere.
No one in the media has been demanding reparations for LGTB members.
The Senator is clearly pandering to an influential group of Democratic primary voters to win votes.
The LGBT community should be offended that Elizabeth Warren is engaging in such blatant pandering by offering them money in exchange for their votes.
And Elizabeth Warren and her campaign staff should be embarrassed for having proposed such a bill.
This is just another sign that Warren’s campaign is running out of steam.
Forcing taxpayers to give LGBT couples $57 million dollars against their will is wrong.
Warren’s total disregard for how Christians may feel about forking over millions of dollars to LGBT couples is also concerning.
What do you think?
Is this a serious policy proposal? Or a desperate campaign move?
