House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are circling the wagons.
Democrats know the coronavirus pandemic is their best shot at victory in 2020.
And now Nancy Pelosi issued an ultimatum that was Donald Trump’s worst nightmare.
President Trump has already signed into law what he calls 3.5 relief bills to keep small businesses afloat and prevent a second Great Depression.
April saw the economy shed 20 million jobs and the real unemployment rate spike to 22 percent thanks to government lockdowns that snuffed out economic growth.
Congress is sure to pass the fourth round of coronavirus relief legislation and Nancy Pelosi is already urging Democrats to draw a line in the sand.
POLITICO reports, “On a private call with members Monday afternoon, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her deputies sketched the outline of a trillion-dollar-plus package that would deliver aid to state and local governments — some on the brink of public service cuts — while shoring up safety-net programs for the nation’s most vulnerable.”
“We have to think big,” Pelosi reportedly told Democrats.
Chuck Schumer made it clear Senate Democrats are marching in lockstep with Nancy Pelosi and her caucus in the House on using the next coronavirus relief bill to impose socialism on America.
“They remind me of the old Herbert Hoover. We had the Great Depression. Hoover said just let’s wait it out. It got worse and worse. We need Franklin Roosevelt to entice action and we hope to take that in the House and Senate in a very big and bold way,” Schumer boasted.
Democrats will demand hundreds of billions of dollars in bailouts for government unions, communist “Green New Deal” provisions as well as billions more for a nationwide voter fraud scheme of “universal vote by mail.”
President Trump countered with red lines of no money for cities or states unless they end sanctuary city policies as well as a payroll tax holiday which will put more money in workers’ pockets and make it cheaper for employers to hire new employees.
In every round of previous negotiations, Democrats lost out every time on vote by mail, the Green New Deal, and bailing out government unions.
Pelosi and Schumer know this round of legislation is likely to be their last shot before the elections so they are determined.
Democrat governors are likely to assist this power play by threatening to lay off tens of thousands of police and other first responders and threaten to throw the nation’s response to the coronavirus outbreak into chaos.
Schumer and Pelosi hope to leverage the future employment prospects of first responders to force Republicans to accept trillions of dollars in welfare and voter fraud to help the Democrats turn America into a Venezuela-like failed state.
With an election right around the corner and job losses mounting Democrats are trying to blackmail the GOP into accepting legislation Democrats threaten could lead to hundreds of thousands of more layoffs of police, firefighters, teachers, and other first responders.
