Congressional leaders intensify pressure on Nancy Pelosi to agree to small business relief

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is currently preoccupied with taking a victory lap after narrowly retaining her once-powerful House majority in the November election.

However, as the nation heads towards the new year, Pelosi’s refusal to pass any meaningful COVID-19 relief is coming back to bite her. Powerful GOP leaders have once again begun pressuring Pelosi to agree to a small business relief deal as new COVID-19 restrictions loom. 

This time around, Pelosi doesn’t have nearly as much leverage as in months past, as Democrats will hold the majority by only a few seats when the 117th Congress reconvenes in the new year.

Pelosi’s resistance to striking a deal has turned many moderate Democrats off, increasing the odds that they will cross the aisle and support a GOP proposal to provide relief to suffering Americans. A number of powerful House Republicans have raised calls for Pelosi to release funds waiting to be distributed to suffering American businesses.

Rep. Fred Keller (R-PA) charged Pelosi via Twitter on Monday: “When talking about targeted relief, nothing has been more effective than the Paycheck Protection Program. It is astonishing that Speaker Pelosi continues to hold up #PPP funds at a time when American families and small businesses need our help.”

House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) exposed Pelosi’s callous decision to hold Americans hostage to achieve partisan goals the same day:

For months $138 BILLION in aid for workers/small businesses has just been sitting there unused because Pelosi is blocking it to play politics. Republicans stand ready to re-open the Paycheck Protection Program.

GOP Rep. Ron Wright (R-TX) also called on Pelosi to act quickly to agree to the distribution of millions in already-earmarked funds to American small businesses:

For over 100 days, $138 billion of unused Paycheck Protection Program funds have been sitting untouched because Democrats have been playing partisan politics. Enough is enough. It’s time to re-open the #PPP and get much-needed relief out the door to American small businesses.

For months, Pelosi has refused to consider any relief that does not meet her $2.2 trillion threshold — causing strife even within the Democrat party. Moderate Democrats have pressed Pelosi for months to compromise with GOP leaders or approve piecemeal legislation — but their pleas have fallen on deaf ears.

Even House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) signaled hope that Pelosi may back down, telling CQ-Roll Call in a recent interview: “I just hope that we can get agreement. It may not be everything that everybody wants but at least if we can get some significant relief to people. And then we’re going to be here next year. If we need to do other things, we’ll do other things.”

Other critical COVID-19 relief programs are slated to run out of funds before the end of the year, and Pelosi will face the difficult decision whether or not to cooperate with GOP leaders and the White House on extending protections such as eviction moratoriums and delays of student loan payments keeping the US economy afloat as well.

  1. She needs to go bye-bye. So sick of her one sided deals that only help her and her buddies. Yes, the relief will add to the deficit, but too many Americans need the help now. Congress, stop playing politics and help the people who are paying your salary and you are suppose to working for.

    1. They should all be killed, (domonrats) and let GOD sort them out! And the illegal immigrants are piling up at our southern border!!

      1. IT’S GONNA GET MUCH WORSE AT THE BORDER AS PRES ELECT BIDEN WANTS TO STOP ANY WALL BUILDING. HE WANTS MORE MEXICANS AND OTHER FORMS OF VERMIN TO ADD TO HIS DUMOCRAP ROLES.

      2. Yrs — emboldened by thinking that Biden will take over because of his and others’ criminal behavior, our enemies WANT BIDEN to sink America.

    2. she [ piglosser] thinks she deserves every thing she can get JUST FOR BREATHING!!!!!!!!!!! She needs more foe another facelift as the last one did not WORK AS HER NECK LOOKS LIKE A TURKEY NECK <<< OH SHE IS A TURKEY
      JUST TOOOOOOOOOOOO TOUGH TO HAVE FOR THANKSGIVING~~ !!!!!! TOOOOOOOOOOOO TOUGH TO CHEW
      ALSO TASTE AWFUL SO OLD!!!!!!!!

      1. The only problem with convention of states is that the politicians and the government actually controls that and they aren’t going to allow it to happen both parties are totally against term limits

    1. IT WAS SHOWN AND HER WANTS HAVE MORE TO DO WITH WHAT AND WHO SHE WANTS THE MONEY FOR! lIKE THE LAST ONE EX, MONEY FOR THE ARTS? All who give her and the rats more money for their backing! 00000 for us! And another thing all the wasted money sending me and so many others asking for donations, get a clue! WE DO NOT HAVE EXTRA $$ for donations no matter how needy they are!

  2. It’s about time she’s done more to destroy the Democratic party than anyone. No one trusts her anymore if they ever did.

  3. I just wish for once they would have to try to live off of what we have to live off with, I guess that will never happen but if it did all of them would be whining about not being able to live the plush lives they all love…

  4. Your right. Their Pay comes from the TAXpayers– They didn’t do anything but sit on their butts and take it all in.
    Pelosi works for the Govt too in a shade job that Nancy has given him. Both of the Pelosi’s need to be fired. and now.

    1. they go on obamo care and pay the high premiums no more free heath care just because they are government . that’s why we need term limits wont happen

    2. What if all Americans stop paying taxes.Can they arrest the whole country? They need term limits. If they knew that they would have to get a real job, maybe some of this b.s. would stop.

  5. PELOSI NEEDS TO BE “HUNG,” ALONG WITH OBAMA/HILLARY/BRENNAN/COMEY/HOLDER/LYNCH. THIS IS THE ULTIMATE FOR WHAT THEY ARE GUILTY OF; {T R E A S O N/O B S T R U C T I O N}!

    JUST LIKE THE ROSENBERGS GOT BACK IN THE 50’S, SO SHOULD IT APPLY HERE, AND NOW! BUT, NOW OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT DEPTS ARE {WUSSIES}, SO THE “DEATH” PENALTY WILL NEVER BE CARRIED OUT, IN FACT, I’D EVEN VEBTURE TO SAY THAT, NONE OF THESE POLITICAL ANTI-AMERICANS, WHO STAGED A {COUP} ON AMERICA, AND OUR DULY ELECTED PRESIDENT, WILL NEVER EVEN SEE JAIL TIME.

    THEY’LL DIE OF, “OLD AGE”, WITH A SMILE ON THEIR FACES, KNOWING THEY PULLED OFF, PUTTING THE SCREWS TO AMERICA/AMERICANS. THANKS TO OUR CORRUPT AS HELL, CONGRESS/JUDICIAL DEPTS.

    1. John Grychak, our consolation must be that those smiles will be wiped off their faces when they one day try to enter thru the Golden Gate! God is watching,
      He KNOWS what they have done. Don’t think He will be in a mood to deal lightly with them!

    2. I agree, tired of all their machinations, corruption, and scare tactics, very tired of No Lives Matter and the Democrat run Gestapo ANTIFA. They all need to be tried for treason, that includes obstructionist Ray from the FBI and head of the other alphabet agencies.

    3. John- I agree 1000%! It is so disgusting how greedy, selfish and corrupt they all are! It is disheartening to see our great country slide down this slippery slope. I fear we will never get back up~

  6. Its too bad we can’t fire all of Congress and their so called employees and the fact that Donald Trump doesn’t take a pay check. You know that Sleep Joe and Harris are going to eat it up as soo as they get in there. Should they get in there. We don’t have to let them get in there. We can demand that we be shown the numbers of people from each County and how they voted. The number of votes can’t go beyond the numbers of people that reside there.
    Colorado has the same problem. Polis got in by being a crook. HIckenlooper got in by being crooked as well.

    1. Folks are writing letters to the White House requesting a full audit of all 50 states. The letters are needed by the time they get to the Supreme Court. FYI.

  7. Peloski aka Pollack needs to be put out to greener Pastures. She is a 81 Year Old
    Acts like a 2 Year Old with the Mentally of DEMENTIA ridden Elderly Women that doesn’t know where she is and where she’s been.

    1. she does not know where she is she id DRUNK ALL THE TIME!!!

      I DO MEAN A DRUNK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. I have to say, Ole Witchie has been nothing but a pain while she has been in Office. All of her Baffoon’s are in just as bad a shape as she is for letting her get away with everything she does. It is like a bounch of kid’s they are all Scared to death of Piglosi. She has got some kind of hold on them or they would see about trying to get her kicked out of Office. She is too Od and Crotchty to try and help people. She is loaded with money more than she will every spend she will die being a Uguly Old Hateful Woman. ( Truth be known her Hubby probably doesn’t care to hang’s for her she is so Evil ). So when your rich I guess you could care less to try and help anyone. I would like to see her tar and feathered then hung from a rope.

    1. Add to that the BIG companies and the BIG donations should NEVER be allowed to buy any OFFICE IN OUR GOVT!
      Its like laughing in our faces that they have the kind of money to by an election!

  9. That is why we needed to clean house and vote all RED in….too late now…but maybe (if there is no cheating this next time) we can do it!! Vote the Dems out…they always have ulterior motives….their own deep pockets!

    1. IF that said nephew is newscum, we have been trying to recall him. Maybe now that he has been working with china, we have the goods on him! HE HAS GOTTA GO!

  10. Pelosi will go down in history as one of the most disliked politicians ever. She somehow thinks she is the “Queen Of America” and everyone show bow down to her every whim and desire. She should be kicked out of the House with NO FUTURE benefits. I feel the same about a few other politicians from both sides of the aisle in the Senate and the House. For too many politicians, their hunger for power and thirst for money takes priority over the needs of poor Americans.

  11. this is just getting damn ridiculous imo. You folks in that house need to get together and pick someone with BRAINS to run against her for speaker and get her out of that position so y’all can actually get some work done this time and help us, American Citizens. I can’t think of anyone to pick, no one from VA please, they are wimps, but can think of plenty not to pick.

  12. PELOSI IS NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING UNTIL JOE BIDEN IS INSTALLED AS PRESIDENT’ SHE HATES TRUMP’SHE IS HAVING A GREAT THANKSGIVINGDINNER WHILE PEOPLEARE STARVING.I DO NOT ENVIE HER WHEN SHE STANDS BE FOR GOD AS HER JUDGE.SHE IS ON EVERY ONES PRAY LIST TO BE REMOVED FROM CONGRESS.

  13. Pug Pelosi is setting in the waiting room for Biden to get the shaft and Adolf Harris to step into the Presidency and take the old Pug with her as the VP. WERE THIS TO HAPPEN you can bet in a 6 month period A. H. Would get the broom sweep and bingo here is the Pug as Pres. Now ain’t that a kick in the butt for America. Pug tried to over shadow Trump for 4 years as the true VP but Trump laughed and sent her back to the rickety house but Now she is, in her bourbon soaked mini brain The most ripe pick for VP. This I Hope is just a bad dream I had from to much coffee last night.

    1. You have the same idea I have had. The pig will find out some good garbage on the hoe and make her self pres. That s been her plan all along! CAN WE THE PEOPLE RECALL AN UNELECTED OR FRAUDULANT ELECTED PRES????????????????????

  14. The inmates have taken over the asylum. I hope you lefties enjoy president Harris or even better president Pelosi. These 2 have shown us just how efficient they are, not to mention that AOC person! Ugh!!

  15. Why the hell did they put her back in and who elected her because the dems are not happy with her.the dems are even joing the Republicans because they are so unhappy with her.another back door deal .

    1. Not sure what show the dem was on but he stated that the only reason she stays on is she can raise all the $$$ from BIG companies, more than any one of them can! I SAY NO BIG CO. SHOULD BE ABLE TO BUY ANY PERSON OR DEPT IN OUR GOVT. SHOULD BE A LAW!

  16. I cannot believe that the House voted her back in as Speaker! I thought it would be AFTER the elections when the new Congressmen were sworn in and take their seat. At least that is how is should be. In which case Pelosi needs to be tossed out of the Speaker position and into the manure pile! Pelosi does NOTHING unless it favors her in some fashion.

  17. They want small business gone so big business can take over .there is more money and more control in big business . and of course they all are inside traders and have millions to play with want more there such greedy pigs.
