The clock is still ticking, businesses are still going under, there appears to be a deal on the table but once again, it’s House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the Democrats who are still refusing to help Americans who are suffering.

According to the House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, they’ve had a deal on the table at least since Sunday, they’ve agreed on the numbers but it’s still being held up.

McCarthy noted that the Paycheck Protection Program has worked very well, but Pelosi held it up for the last two weeks, as millions more are being thrown out of work.

From Daily Caller:

“Last week we watched 5 million people — new numbers — for unemployment. How many more millions of Pelosi’s layoffs will we have to endure before she will put people before politics?,” McCarthy said on Fox News. “We could have been done yesterday, but the Democrats continue to hold up, even though we have agreed to all the numbers,” McCarthy continued.

There was no reason to hold it up, it was a clean bill to help Americans. Other things can be addressed in other bills, this was the program that was out of money now.

Pelosi went on ABC with George Stephanopoulos claiming that this is their “opportunity” to get things now and claimed that businesses would get money in a “timely fashion.”

It’s not timely.

11 days since they blocked it and she bragged about them blocking it. In the meantime, she’s gone on the Late Late Show, showed off her expensive refigerators and designer ice cream.

How many businesses have gone under in the meantime? How many employees have been thrown out of work?

Perhaps if we put it in terms that Pelosi might understand, since she doesn’t seem to get Americans being out of work. One of her favorite ice cream places just went under.

According to SF Eater in 2014:

[Pelosi] eats dark chocolate ice cream every day for breakfast, and has for years. “I don’t see it as different from having a cup of coffee,” Pelosi told Food & Wine, citing Three Twins’ Bittersweet Chocolate and Double Rainbow’s Ultra Chocolate as two of her favorites. “The flavors keep getting darker and darker, which I love.” She even has a preferred vessel: “Sugar cones are my thing.”

Now we don’t know whether they applied for the PPP or if that would have saved them. But the pandemic finally did them in.

It’s sad because it seems like that’s just the sort of small business that we should be encouraging and the program is meant to help. I really feel for Three Twins because it sounds like they put their heart into it to deliver a quality product.

But this is the type of businesses now going under while the clock ticks, businesses people put their whole lives into. Will she understand how critical this is if it hits home for her?
