Pelosi leads Democrat charge to delay coronavirus stimulus package

Right now, Americans are rightfully panicking about how they are going to pay their bills. But that doesn’t seem to be a big concern for Nancy Pelosi.

The House speaker (D-CA) and her Democrat colleagues were recently exposed by conservative talk show host Mark Levin for delaying a much-needed stimulus package in order to push a progressive agenda, Fox News reports.

Stop playing games

Mark Levin has been at the forefront of the attacks to expose Nancy Pelosi and the effort she has undertaken to politicize this crisis.

At first, Pelosi and her fellow Dems distracted from the global pandemic with allegations that the way President Donald Trump refers to the disease is racist. Now, after a nonpartisan taxpayer relief bill was proposed to help with the outbreak, Pelosi and Schumer have decided to add Democrat agenda issues to sabotage the bill.

This happened after Republicans added several ideas the Dems brought forth to further help American workers. Now, according to reports, the legislation is being stalled in order to push issues such as union representation and environmental agendas.

Americans paying the price

While our elected officials trade blows over their pet projects in Congress, Americans are losing. First, there is the obvious in watching the markets crash every day. Within two weeks, we have seen the market fall by more than 10,000 points, an amount that could take years to recover, if not longer.

What’s more, the Senate was expected to pass a massive coronavirus relief bill over the weekend, but Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) blocked it, with Pelosi instead announcing that she would be introducing new legislation to the House in the coming week.

Pelosi introduced a 1,400-page bill on Monday that, according to Breitbart, would include “payment for student loans, same-day voter registration, collective bargaining powers for unions, increased fuel emission standards for airlines, and the expansion of wind and solar tax credits.”

In response, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) exploded in frustration on the Senate floor on Monday.

“I’d like to see Democrats tell New York City doctors and nurses, who are literally overrun, that they are filibustering hospital funding and more masks because they want to argue with the airlines over their carbon footprint?” he said, according to Breitbart. “Eleventh-hour demands Democrats have decided are more important than Americans’ paychecks and the personal safety of doctors and nurses.”

Democrats “ought to be embarrassed,” McConnell added. “This is a national emergency.”
