Nancy Pelosi will stop at nothing to pass her radical agenda.
Her policies are hurting those she claims she’s trying to help.
Nancy Pelosi is taking the American economy hostage with an awful move.
The American economy isn’t doing so well.
This is entirely due to the coronavirus lockdown that has been implemented in most states in America.
While social distancing measures to reduce the chance of exposure should be enacted by state governments, it’s impossible to keep states under lockdown much longer.
The novel coronavirus that emerged in Wuhan, in November of 2019, seems to dissipate far more quickly in warm air.
The summer months should bring a reduction both in the number and severity of the cases.
Hopefully, Americans will soon be able to start reactivating the economy in a careful way to minimize risk.
While saving lives is important keeping America from economically collapsing is also important.
But Nancy Pelosi doesn’t seem to be focused on any of these things.
She’s eating ice cream out of her $24,000 fridge holding up money to small businesses because she wants to force parts of her radical agenda into the bill.
The Senate just passed a $484 billion bill that contains $321 billion to replenish a small-business funding program.
Now it goes to the House, where Nancy Pelosi halted a bipartisan Senate bill before hoping to change election laws and bail out the post office.
Republican Sen. Tim Scott accused Nancy Pelosi of holding funding for small businesses as “hostage” to try and get her agenda passed.
According to the Washington Examiner:
“This is a serious situation, that we should not have a lapse in funding,” Scott said Sunday. “We should tell Ms. Nancy Pelosi, ‘Please give us our paychecks.’ People need their paychecks. And stop holding it hostage in order to do something else.”
Part of the $2 trillion economic relief bill passed by Congress and signed by President Trump last month is the Paycheck Protection Program, a nearly $350 billion effort allocating eight weeks of cash flow to qualifying small businesses so they can pay employees and avoid layoffs.
Funding for the program has run dry, and Congress is working this week to strike a deal to replenish it.
“People are calling every single day,” Scott said. “Hundreds are calling our offices, thousands, I’m sure, throughout this nation because they want their paychecks, and we shouldn’t stand in the way of making that happen.”
As long as the government forces businesses not to operate, they are responsible for helping them keep funded as best they can.
The American workforce does need to get back to work as soon as possible because the American government can’t afford to keep America afloat for much longer.
Nancy Pelosi should stop trying to waste taxpayers dollars on things that don’t matter and focus on getting the American small businesses enough money to tide them over and then focus on helping them get back to work in a safe manner.
