By The Federalist. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has cackled the quiet part out loud. In a statement Friday, she announced that all of a sudden, after months and months of American people and small businesses begging for relief, that she will now compromise on a $908 billion stimulus package.
Why the sudden change of heart? Because Joe Biden is the proclaimed winner of the presidential race. What is as plain as the couture mask on Nancy’s face is that she let millions suffer for one reason and one reason only, to help Joe Biden win the election. . .
Pelosi had two paths before the election, to accept the $1.8 trillion-package President Trump offered as a compromise (which last I checked was actually bigger than $908 billion) and see what happened in the election to seek more, or to stiff the American people while she got her hair done without a mask and ate expensive ice cream. She chose the latter in a cynical effort to hurt Donald Trump.
Pelosi and her sycophants will say that they had no guarantee that Trump, if reelected, would follow through with more stimulus in the new year. Even if that is true, and there is not much reason to believe it is, so what? In what universe is nothing with a chance of more later better than something with a chance of more later? It makes absolutely no sense.
Pelosi isn’t even arguing that she was delaying as a tactic to move Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to her position before the election. She knew that wouldn’t happen and she didn’t care. She refused to compromise. (Read more from “Nancy Pelosi Let Millions Suffer To Win an Election” HERE)
Pelosi Willing To Accept Smaller Relief Bill: It’s ‘Okay Now Because We Have a New President’
By Daily Wire. Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Friday that she would work with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to pass a smaller coronavirus relief package which she deemed was now okay “because we have a new president.”
“What shifted in your opinion when the Problem Solvers Caucus had a much larger bill a few months ago?” a reporter asked Pelosi. “You did not like that piece of legislation. What has shifted now when they’re on board with this piece that’s come out in the Senate?”
“Perhaps you missed what I said earlier. Joe Biden committed to ending and crushing the virus and had a build better America initiative, build back better,” Pelosi snapped back. “A vaccine, answer to our prayers. An answer to our prayers of 95% effectiveness in terms of Pfizer and Moderna and there maybe others coming forward. That is a total game changer, a new president and a vaccine.”
“This has simplicity. It’s what we’ve had in our bills,” she claimed. “It’s for a shorter period of time, but that’s okay now, because we have a new president. A president who recognizes that we need to depend on science to stop the virus. A president who understands that America’s working families need to have money in their pockets in a way that takes them into the future, without any of the contraptions of any of the other bills that the administration was associating itself with [inaudible] before.” (Read more from “Pelosi Willing To Accept Smaller Relief Bill: It’s ‘Okay Now Because We Have a New President’” HERE)
