Are you ready for the best stimulus package ever?
To hear the President of the United States tell it, you should hop to getting there.
Because it’s coming.
After the election, that is.
Much has been made of the war over a new coronavirus package, as Nancy Pelosi has remained loathe to lose footing.
As reported by RedState’s Mike Miller, Nancy guested on CNN’s State of the Union Sunday, during which she rejected a letter sent to both her and POTUS by three Democrat governors (including Michigan’s Gretchen Whitmer) asking them to “put differences aside and agree to another, much-needed COVID-19 relief bill.”
Nancy said No:
“That is not a lot of messages, although I respect each and every one of them.”
Host Jake Tapper observed, “More than 23 million Americans are on unemployment benefits right now, as you know. One study shows the poverty rate is higher now than it’s been in the whole pandemic.”
But per Pelosi, compromise will have to wait:
“The fact is, if we don’t agree to the science to crush the virus — if they did what is in our bill, that science dictates that we do — then…we can lower the incidence of the virus in certain areas, open schools, open businesses, and the rest. … No one wants [agreement] more than the House Democrats — we represent these people. … It’s, what, nine months later? And they still will have refused to honor science with the solutions.”
Nevertheless, Donald J. says for those in need, the cavalry’s coming.
As he departed the White House for three rallies, the endlessly energetic Commander-in-Chief told reporters Nancy’s nested in nonsense:
“Nancy Pelosi is only interested in bailing out badly-run, crime-ridden Democrat cities and states. That’s all she is interested in. She is not interested in helping the people.”
The GOP aims to repossess the lower chamber, compliments of the congresswoman:
“I think we are going to take back the House because of her.”
And here’s the big news:
“After the election, we will get the best stimulus package you have ever seen.”
After a months-long stall, a package could’ve made it through last Wednesday.
But the Senate moved to block.
On the table: $1.8 billion.
Dems wanted more.
Per The Daily Caller, it was unanimous:
The $500 billion bill would have included a federal unemployment benefit, Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funding and additional money for more coronavirus testing. If the bill was passed, money would have been directed to schools. Every Democrat voted against the stimulus bill, citing the need more a larger package.
Earlier this month, Trump reversed gears on a postponement of negotiations until after the election.
Not that it’s helped — Pelosi’s dug in.
But maybe good things come to those who wait — perhaps the “best” “ever”…
