Pelosi Calls Trump's Executive Orders "Constitutional Slop"
Dems have been fighting the GOP over a new stimulus package. They want to extend out the $600 a month so that many unemployed are getting paid more staying home than they would if they went back to work. And that is only one of the many addendums that I am sure they want to tack on. But the GOP doesn't want to fight, they just want to aid the American people and hopefully boost our economy. So of course the GOP sponsored stimulus package is dead in the water. Trump saw this and decided to act and get stuff done for the American people. Dems are of course livid as they want to make him seem as incompetent as possible before the election. Pelosi claimed that his orders were unconstitutional... how dare he do his job and help Americans.
“First of all, he is saying states have the money. No, they don’t. They have expenses from the coronavirus. They have lost revenue. Because of that, they are firing health care workers, first responders, teachers, and the rest, sanitation, transportation because they don’t have the money. Second of all, everything is left out — our assistance to the schools, feeding the hungry, helping people who are going to be evicted..."
“Well, the fact is, is that whether they’re legal or not takes time to figure out,” Pelosi said. “I associate my remarks with what the senator says, they’re ‘unconstitutional slop.’ Right now we want to address the needs of the American people. As my constitutional advisers tell me they’re absurdly unconstitutional.”
"Trump announced a $400-per-week supplemental unemployment payment to out-of-work Americans -- short of the $600 weekly benefit that expired at the end of July. He unveiled an extension of student loan relief and protections from evictions for renters and homeowners.
Trump also issued a payroll tax holiday through the end of the year for Americans earning less than $100,000, while promising more relief if he wins a second term."
This is the sad state of our nation. We have Republicans trying their best to MAGA and Dems are constantly doing everything in their power to stop them. We need term limits, politicians regardless of bias need to understand they are there to serve us, not themselves, or their party.
