Democrat pledge to challenge Trump’s executive orders fizzles out

Last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) indicated that she would legally challenge Donald Trump’s executive orders bypassing legislative coronavirus relief.

This week, Nancy Pelosi’s fury seems to have subsided, and Democrat leaders appear to be unwilling to lead the charge against Trump’s popular executive actions. 

The Hill reported:

President Trump and Democratic leaders both predict there will be lawsuits over this weekend’s executive orders sidestepping Congress on issues like payroll taxes and unemployment benefits, but congressional Democrats are unlikely to lead that charge.

Democratic lawmakers aren’t rushing to court and will likely let state officials or private parties spearhead the legal challenges that could take months or even a year to resolve.

Among their chief concerns: the optics.

Donald Trump’s orders accomplished much of what both Democrats and Republicans prioritized in their proposed deals, but without any of the fluff that was causing negotiations to break down. The orders included a long-sought-after payroll tax cut, an eviction moratorium along with student loan and unemployment relief.

Pelosi and her Democrat colleagues know they can’t argue that all four of those measures are desperately needed, so their initial strategy was to attack the practicality of implementing the orders — quite an amusing reversal from normal Democrat operations.

The Los Angeles Times reported last week that the orders “are expected to face legal challenges from Democrats that could blunt their impact,” but Democrat legislators have already lost steam because it’s difficult to challenge orders that will directly benefit most of the US population.

Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) was asked by reporters on Monday if Democrats intend to file a lawsuit against the Trump administration over the orders.

Schumer’s deflection is very telling. “The bottom line is the executive orders — I agree with [GOP Rep. Ben Sasse (R-NE)] that they’re unconstitutional slop,” Schumer responded. “But the bottom line is even if they’re here, they’re not going to do what’s needed or come even close.”

After releasing a statement condemning the orders last week, Nancy Pelosi is now refusing to comment on Democrat plans to challenge the order.

Why can’t the Representatives and Senators be genuine representatives of the people and serving their genuine needs and requirements? Why should they be playing politics all the time?

Because that is what politicians do.. fortunately Trump isn’t a politician, he is a man of action.

Robbie, until you can prove that you could do better while being attacked, go hide in a basement like your leader, LOL!
Mr Trump has done a Hell of an impressive job! Look at all he has accomplished in less than 4 years (no other President has accomplished as much)! This man Loves our Nation and is working to improve all the damage done by his idiot predecessor! Now the Dems really want to show how stupid they are and plan to vote in a demented candidate! Oh and we don’t know what you have planned, because like the democraps we can’t see beyond our noses! Uh huh, right!

You hit the nail on the head, politicians are as crooked as the day is long, and they must be removed from government forever. All “lawyers:” must never be allowed to participate in government in any form or fashion. The original 13th amendment specified “no titles of nobility” and that was ignored when the crooked lawyers removed that amendment form the Constitution and wrote a replacement for it. Lawyers are definitely very dishonest and only wanting to become as monetarily rich as they can be by cheating the American People.

Wyatt, it is a “democratic” country, not a “democray”. This country has been a “republic” since its founding and, by the way, was founded upon Christian principles. Also, the phrase in the Pledge of Allegiance is, “and to the republic for which it stands”, not “into the republic for which it stand

What a fool. Can’t see beyond your nose. Can’t you tell when someone is lying to you. Low intelligence. Obviously a CNN watcher. Try a week watching Fox. Buy the Epoch Times. Get the real facts. Once you learn the real truth, you will hate yourself for being used and you friends will unfriend you but that’s okay. At least you have now have a good chance of having a good life and no longer hanging with those that will hold you down. Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should. Rise up and learn to be happy. You can do this. It is the right thing to do.

Let us hope and vote that all these politicians who have turned their backs on the people will be voted out this election. That’s the only way this nation will ever get any relief from this mess. The democrats can support all this destruction in the streets but it won’t bring anything but more disaster. Although it won’t help the common people these slime balls will have to face what they have created at some point.

Robbie, you are the typical democrat. Just saying it does not make it so. Give me some facts supporting your statement. All polls of late suggest that Trump in winning the swing states and very knowledgeable people are predicting that Trump will win in a landslide. Why not ask Michelle the name of the doctor treating her for her Trump Derangement Syndrome.

The reason Dems dont like Trump is because he is a businessman and not a politician. He might come across as a bully of sorts but thats the businessman being in charge. He has convinced me by his actions that he wants the best for this country. History has shown the Democrats get this country in a quagmire and the Republicans have to bail them out. Lets not repeat previous administration mistakes.

Pelosi and the Lefties can bluster and fume all they wish, but the precedent was set by themselves under Obama, and they only have themselves to blame. They (Democrats) were warned that such actions would likely come back to bite them and the president’s Exec. Orders has clearly shown them to be careful what they wish for, they just might get it. Just like they have.
