Nancy Pelosi Tries to Hold Up Americans Again, Claims Must Pass New Virus Bill 'Without Too Much Conversation'

Listen to this. Sounds like she really is going to try to keep people locked up as long as possible (till November, perhaps?), decimate the economy as much as she possibly can and make people reliant on the government.

First, she says we can’t open until we can “test everyone” “treatment” “isolation.” “God, willing we get a virus, I mean a vaccine, or a therapy soon and that would be helpful to opening up.”

Second, we need to “honor” people including teachers and trash collectors. No offense to teachers and trash collectors but everyone is dealing with this. No, teachers (and I’m one) are not any more heroic than anyone else here. What does that have to do with either the dealing with the virus or opening up the economy? How about honoring them and us all by treating us like adults, letting those who can do it reasonably and safely, go back to work? Apparently “honoring” means throwing more money at state and local governments (huh?).

Third, we have to put “money in the pockets of the American people.” “The hunger doesn’t take a pause, the rent doesn’t take a pause,” Pelosi said. But she’s the one, who through her own “pauses” causing weeks of delay for both the original virus relief bill and the subsequent refusing of the Paycheck Protection Program may have thrown millions more out of work. It’s hard to calculate just how many businesses went under and how many she did in because she was trying to push Democratic agenda items like mail-in voting and give $25 million to the Kennedy Center.

This, while she was enjoying time with her grandchildren coming from New York (while other Americans could not visit their grandchildren or grandparents) in front of her luxury double refrigerators and a freezer full of designer ice cream.

And she’s the one trying to argue Trump is out of touch? Trump and Republicans were the ones pushing for the PPP, helping small businesses and Americans while she was chowing on ice cream. She was bragging about saying they’d refused when she initially delayed the refunding as millions were being thrown out of work.

So what does all this ultimately mean? We must pass the 1,800-page, $3 trillion bill that she’s pushing that has had no Republican input and no one has seen, and we can’t have “too much conversation” about it.

Hello, “we need to pass it to find out what’s in it” Part Two.

Then they will blame Republicans for not caring about the American people as she tries to hold Americans hostage to get her list of goodies and agenda items passed.

Just disgraceful.
