A stimulus bill has finally gone through.
But it is not enough.
Now, Pelosi is responsible for this country-wide disaster.
It is an understatement to say that this pandemic has hit the American people hard.
Small businesses have been closed permanently, people cannot earn enough money to support themselves or their families and are left in a state of panic trying to figure out if they will be homeless come the new year.
Unfortunately, the government has not been forthcoming with aid to the struggling American people.
It has been eight months since the last stimulus check, totaling $1200.
But why the dramatic hold up?
The reason no further aid has come to the people is because of the Democrats forcing a stalemate on passing a new aid bill.
Recently, Nancy Pelosi accepted a version of the bill to pass through, one that would dish out only $600 to each American family.
Naturally, many people were furious and demanded answers as to why the government stalled so long only to hand out pennies a day.
On Sunday, a CNN reporter asked Pelosi why she accepted a smaller stimulus package than the one proposed by the Trump administration before the election.
“Pelosi wouldn’t answer my question about why the $900 billion deal is more acceptable to her than the $1.8 trillion offer Mnuchin made to her this fall,” CNN’s Manu Raju said. “Pelosi wouldn’t call on me at the press conference, which is becoming a pattern, even though just five reporters were there. She left the press conference as I asked her the question. And she ignored my question in the hallway as well. Asked again in the hallways why this proposal is more acceptable than the Mnuchin plan, Pelosi didn’t respond. But Schumer, who was walking with her in the hallway, said: ‘Ask Mitch McConnell,’” Raju continued. “It’s true that McConnell and Senate Republicans objected to Mnuchin’s $1.8 trillion plan, but so did Pelosi, who said in October: ‘This proposal amounted to one step forward, two steps back.’”
Clearly, she does not want to face the truth.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced this past Saturday that he has finalized a deal to provide funds for struggling Americans, but many agree that it is not nearly satisfactory.
McConnell also tore into the Democrats for stalling the bill and preventing aid from going out.
Republicans say they wanted this bill finalized months ago, but the Democrats – by their own words – said they stalled the bill’s progress until after the election.
“There is no doubt this new agreement contains input from our Democratic colleagues. It is bipartisan. But these matters could have been settled long ago. So why did it take all this time? We know why. We have heard Democrats say openly that they were not willing to deal all summer and fall, but are willing now, because they now have a President-elect of their own political party. That’s not my accusation … that’s their admission.”
Pelosi celebrates this as a triumph, saying “Something is better than nothing,”
But this comes as a slap in the face to all those who have struggled through these past few grueling months.
To use the safety and wellbeing of people as a bargaining chip is not only offensive, it is downright malicious.
