We all know the saying TGIF, “thank goodness it’s Friday.” That applies, in particular, today because this Friday, the American people are anxiously awaiting the $2 trillion coronavirus relief package passed earlier this week in the Senate. Pelosi announced late Wednesday that she would be delaying the vote until Friday, causing widespread dismay.
Pelosi blamed Republicans for the delay when in reality the speaker was attempting a “blatant push to include abortion funding in the emergency coronavirus bill” and “attempted to get ‘several’ provisions added to the bipartisan plan while in negotiations with U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin” according to The Daily Caller.
If that weren’t disgusting enough, Pelosi reportedly had zero effort in bipartisanship and again blamed Republicans saying, “I don’t think we can get unanimous consent. There are a number of people who are working their way here – on the Republican side for sure, maybe on the Democratic side – to object to unanimous consent.”
Biz Pac Review reported Pelosi’s above comment and added, “that’s a dubious claim, albeit one that could have been verified had she simply tried – just tried – to advance the bill with unanimous consent. But she never did. Instead, she herself called for a 24-hour debate period and scheduled the vote for Friday.”
What a snake. But it gets slimier. The 24-hour delay was actually her 80thBirthday. Additionally, “Pelosi’s decision to delay the vote comes amid a report that jobless claims rose to 3,283,000 last week. It also comes amid the speaker having tried to hijack the bill with spending for unrelated pet projects after having ridden ‘into town’ from an ‘extended vacation” we learned from President Trump.
Earlier this week Trump tweeted, “Republicans had a deal until Nancy Pelosi rode into town from her extended vacation. The Democrats want the virus to win? They are asking for things that have nothing to do with our great workers or companies. They want Open Borders & Green New Deal. Republicans shouldn’t agree!”
