Pelosi Signals Possible Support For New Senate Coronavirus Bill After Failing To Push Through Pet Projects

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi indicated that she might be tossing her support behind the Senate’s new trillion dollar coronavirus stimulus package after taking action to sabotage the original one in an attempt to get some rather radical progressive projects attached to it.

The move by House Democrats to prevent the bill from passing isn’t exactly surprising when you understand the left-wing strategy of never allowing a crisis to go to waste. Pelosi saw an opportunity to take advantage of the suffering of others to get some junk added to the legislation designed to further their own agenda.

Really shows you how much they care for the “little people,” doesn’t it?

The statement came as draft text of the sprawling, $2 trillion plan emerged, with the Senate barreling toward a likely vote sometime Wednesday after two failed attempts on the original version of the legislation earlier in the week.

Senate lawmakers and Trump administration officials negotiated late into the night to reach a deal. But even if it passes the upper chamber, support in the Democrat-controlled House is key. Pelosi had scrambled talks by pursuing a separate House bill that contained provisions Republicans decried as extraneous and political in nature.

In a written statement, Pelosi indicated, however, she is open to the latest Senate version.

“America is facing a grave health crisis with a serious impact on our economy. I salute the strong leadership of Chuck Schumer and Senate Democrats,” she said Wednesday. “I especially thank our House Democratic Committee Chairmen, who worked hard to move the Republican proposal from corporations-focused to workers-first and who will now review the legislative text of this agreement with our Caucus.”

Pelosi said that the original Senate GOP bill was a “non-starter.”

“This bipartisan legislation takes us a long way down the road in meeting the needs of the American people,” she said.

The California representative went on to say that the new stimulus bill doesn’t go as far as the left wants it to go, but “due to the unity and insistence of Senate and House Democrats, the bill has moved a great deal closer to America’s workers.”

At this point, while this is an acknowledgement that things are on the right track toward getting this bill passed, we still don’t know for sure if other House Democrats will fully be on board and in support of passing the legislation.

It’s critical that relief be supplied to the American people as soon as possible in order to ease suffering and to prevent economic collapse, so hopefully everyone puts politics aside and gets this done.

What’s a billion dollars to a multi-billionaire? Probably nothing. But what’s a billion dollars to a man with an ego the size of Donald Trump’s? Probably a lot. That being said, the duly-elected POTUS didn’t care about losing money. He’s not dumb. He knew what he was getting in to when he ran declared his candidacy back in 2015. But losing a billion dollars is what can happen when you don’t take a salary or make any business deals for four solid years. From USA Today: WASHINGTON – The presidency appears to have cost Donald Trump more than $1 billion in wealth. Trump tumbled nearly 300 spots on Forbes’ billionaire rankings during his presidency, the magazine reported this week, with his estimated wealth falling from $3.5 billion to $2.4 billion during his four-year term. CONTINUED: That’s still good enough for 1,299th place on the magazine’s new billionaire list, down from 1,001st last year. The list is topped by a frequent political target of Trump: Amazon and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos, whose wealth is tagged at $177 billion.

Report: Antifa Radicals Tried Burning Down Building with Federal Agents Inside (Watch)

You’d think this would be bigger news!!

What else is there to say about “antifa?” The radical group is comprised of anti-American children who don’t want to work and demand everything come free. They also don’t care how many innocent people die for their “cause,” either. Check this out, via Right Scoop: CNN only mentions Antifa when they’re arguing that Trump and Republicans believe in conspiracy theories about antifa. Otherwise, the group – which they think is an “idea” – is totally off their radar. Like last night, when they tried to burn down a federal building as part of their ongoing insurrection, CNN didn’t cover it. And still haven’t. In fact in the last year they’ve barely talked about violence in Portland, D.C., and elsewhere, except when they could blame it on conservatives. WATCH: https://twitter.com/TomasMorales_iv/status/1381163263992360960?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1381163263992360960%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fcnns-best-friends-at-antifa-tried-to-torch-a-federal-building-with-people-inside-in-portland-last-night-on-video%2F From Daily Caller: Former Vice President Joe Biden endorsed Antifa in a video announcing his presidential bid Thursday, characterizing the group as “courageous” and saying it’s wrong to draw a moral equivalence between white nationalist groups and those opposing them. The violent methods of Antifa are well documented. The nebulous group often uses these violent means against peaceful conservative speakers, benign free speech advocates, and even journalists.
