Nancy Pelosi just pulled one of the nastiest tricks in the history of American politics.
It caused all hell to break loose on Wall Street and in small businesses across America.
And then Tucker Carlson shut down Nancy Pelosi with this jaw-dropping reality check.
Over the weekend Senate Republicans thought they made a deal with Chuck Schumer to pass a controversial $1.6 trillion economic relief package.
This legislation would have provided grants to small businesses to keep their workers on payroll, direct cash payments to tens of millions of Americans and loans to major industries like hospitals and travel to keep the hundreds of thousands of Americans they employ afloat during these government imposed shutdowns to combat the coronavirus.
Nancy Pelosi flew back to Washington from a nine day vacation and dropped a series of poison pill demands that scuttled the negotiations and sent the stock market crashing 600 points on Monday when trading opened.
Included in Pelosi’s demands for the relief bill was language about an affirmative action program for corporate boards to guarantee more women and minorities seats.
Tucker Carlson ripped Pelosi for trying to jam social justice agenda items into a bill to save the American economy.
“The bill would require every corporation that receives coronavirus aid to have officers and a budget dedicated to diversity and inclusion initiatives for a minimum of five years after they get the money, because that is going to keep America healthy and prosperous, just like it has,” Carlson stated. “Companies would also have to produce elaborate racial reports for the government listing the skin color and the sex of their officers and boards of directors. They have to prove they give enough money to firms owned by women and nonwhites, and of course how much they spend on diversity initiatives.”
Carlson added that this proved Pelosi and the Democrats don’t care about workers or the economy.
Everything the Democrats do is designed to advance their ugly, left-wing social engineering project.
“What does that have to do with the pandemic that might kill you?” Carlson added. “Not one thing. Just more ugly race politics, the kind they specialize in.”
Americans desperately need certainty to know if they will have a job in two weeks.
Government imposed lockdowns in states across the country ground the economy to a standstill.
The greatest danger to Americans is not the virus.
The biggest threat Americans face is the panic that the economy will completely implode.
Without a functioning economy America will collapse into a failed state.
The President is determined to not let that happen.
That is why he supports this relief bill and wants to figure out a plan to get the economy moving again in the first couple of weeks in April.
But Nancy Pelosi only sees the coronavirus as a chance to impose her hard-left social engineering scheme on America.
