House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has been holding up the refunding of the Paycheck Protection Program, meant to help small businesses and save American jobs.
The program has already helped thousands if not millions of Americans.
Here’s President Donald Trump outlining some of the businesses saved.

The Paycheck Protection Program has provided over 1 MILLION loans to help American businesses & workers in this crisis.

But the money has run out and Pelosi is blocking it, holding the livelihoods of Americans in the balance, trying to get more of her political agenda items.
Here she is bragging about Democrats blocking it.
Nancy Pelosi: “I congratulate the Senate Democrats” for objecting to $250 billion in small business relief.
Pelosi is shameless.

Virtually none in liberal media have called her out for this.
But we would like to note that there is one person on one network who at least has broached the subject, and it’s a network that one might not expect.
Julia Chatterley is an anchor and correspondent for CNN International based in New York.
Here she is calling out Congress and saying that they need to “wake up” and pass the refunding of the Paycheck Protection Program, that it’s about “stopping job losses today, saving businesses today.”

You can see John Berman’s eyebrows raise, as though he gets that Chatterley just seemed to go off-script with that one.
Pelosi hardest hit.
It’s insane (isn’t it?) that President Donald Trump was allegedly impeached for holding up aid to Ukraine (when nothing was actually held up), meanwhile, Pelosi is costing thousands of jobs, likely every day this continues and this is the only media calling that out.
So we give props to Chatterley for bringing it up. Republicans are doing everything they can to put pressure on to get it signed but so far Pelosi is still holding out.
