Now Even Dems Are Griping About Pelosi's Inability To Aid Americans
Pelosi has been fighting with the GOP refusing to give any ground when it comes to what she wants in a COVID relief bill. She wants to aid all of the Dem Leaders that have put States into debt well before the pandemic. Meanwhile, the GOP is just trying to get money out to the people, small businesses, and airlines. But Trump took action and put forth a bill that he thought both parties could get behind and it turns out many Dems are for it, but not Pelosi.
"Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) refused the White House’s offer of a $1.8 trillion “compromise” deal on coronavirus relief almost immediately upon offering, but some prominent Democrats are now firing back at the longtime leader, telling her to take the deal.
“This proposal amounted to one step forward, two steps back,” Pelosi said.
"Andrew Yang, a former Democratic presidential candidate, tweeted point-blank at the Speaker over the weekend, telling Pelosi to “take the deal” or risk political fallout.
“Nancy Pelosi take this deal!” Andrew Yang, he said, directing her to the $1.8 trillion plan. “Put politics aside people are hurting.”
Even Far-Left Progressive Rep. Ro Khanna recommended Pelosi take the deal.
“People in need can’t wait until February. 1.8 trillion is significant & more than twice Obama stimulus,” Khanna said. “It will allow Biden to start with infrastructure. Obama won in 08 by doing the right thing on TARP instead of what was expedient. Make a deal & put the ball in McConnell court.”
The GOP is for a smaller Corona Relief package costing $500 Billion and the Dems are for a much package at 2.2 Trillion. Trump really was trying to meet them in middle here. But that is the nature of our government right now, where the parties are very far aprt when it come to policies they want to see enacted. It seems to me that they should at the very least get bills out for small businesses and struggling Americans. Airlines and failing blue states that were struggling well before the pandemic can wait. But Pelosi is not for that either...
