GOP ratchets up pressure on Pelosi to pass COVID-19 relief deal

While millions of Americans continued to suffer due to COVID-19 lockdowns, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sat on a bill that promised economic relief. Now the GOP is putting the hammer down.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said Pelosi’s “all-or-nothing strategy backfired” as Democrats lost seats in the House of Representatives while holding out for a $2.2 trillion coronavirus relief package, the Washington Examiner reported.

Pelosi maintained that President-elect Joe Biden’s victory will bolster their position, ignoring her party’s losses in the House that have brought their majority within a razor-thin margin.

In May, the House passed the $3 trillion HEROES Act that even Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) called “dead on arrival” in the Senate for its lack of bipartisan support, deeming it a Democratic “wish list.” It included another costly stimulus, including for illegal immigrants, as well as vote-by-mail and early voting provisions that had no business in a coronavirus relief package.

McConnell and other Republicans sought a more targeted approach with a lower $500 billion price tag, which Pelosi’s spokesman predictably mischaracterized.

“For six months, Democrats have been pressing Republicans to agree to the next round of coronavirus relief, and for six months, Leader McConnell has insisted on a ‘pause,’ while the White House’s negotiators accused vulnerable families of lying about not being able to pay the bills,” Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammil told the Examiner.

“The speaker of the House spent the entire summer and the entire autumn literally gambling with the health and welfare of the American people,” McConnell fired back Monday in a speech from the Senate floor. “She gambled that if American families didn’t get any more relief before the election, her party would expand its majority in the House and Democrats could continue demanding the right to remake all of society along far-Left lines, in exchange for not passing any more COVID relief whatsoever.”

According to Fox News, McConnell made that address in the hopes of getting a relief packaged passed before Congress adjourns on Dec. 21. Regardless of the cost, any package would have to include provisions for vaccine distribution as well as help for school districts and small businesses impacted by virus closures. The longer Democrats dig in their heels, the longer regular Americans suffer.

“For months, Republicans have tried to make bipartisan progress on huge areas of COVID relief where there’s no disagreement,” McConnell had tweeted Nov. 18. “Vaccine distribution funds. Another round of the PPP for hard-hit small businesses. But Democrats blocked it all over their unrelated liberal wish-list.”

Despite their significant losses in what was supposed to be a year that ushered in a “blue wave,” Democrats seem undeterred in their holdout for a bloated coronavirus relief package. It’s clear that they will stop at nothing — including standing by as Americans lose their lives and livelihoods — to get it done.

Amen, Brother Keith. I’m 71 and if the Libtard federal government heart what I’m thinking and hoping will happen, I’d have to be looking over my shoulder all the time, making sure I didn’t get “mugged” like Rich did or have some other “accident” that removed me. My thought: GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS AMERICA.! Not to mention: God keep the demoncrats out of power.

The American people should have learned a lesson in the past 16 years as long as the Dems have any kind of power they will use it to impede the progress of the US. They are not for this country and surely Pelosi has no beliefs other than her self propelled interests. Wake up America we have to fight to take back this country from the far left. Pray that common sense will prevail.

your exactly right Bob, they say there is NOT a computer error, then what person did this? I believe every state should be held accountable. Pen and paper works for me! IE: Michigan has , i believe 83 counties, so if He takes 10 of them at max ,70% to win the whole freaking state? Shoot Bob, with those odds, you or I could have won! LOL . Biden knew Hillary was tampering with 2016 elections, while he was in office, so we are suppose to believe that he is playing fair now?
Truth always comes out. God Bless America.

They talk about gathering all of Trump’s supporters and put them in concentration camps. If Biden, Harris and Pelosi are going to be in charge, I’m kinda feeling good about it, as long as President Trump is with us. Give it about 3 months and they will come crawling to him begging for his help. The democrat government leaders will be put in the concentration camps, others will be set free and will see and help straighten things out while they see what stupid idiots they have been.
All they want is to put more of your money in their pockets (and their friends) and to tell people when to jump, how high and what direction. COMMUNISTS!!!!!!!! It won’t work here. To many of us, more intelligent, people to deal with.
Oh! I agree with all the comments made. Makes me feel I’m not alone.

The demis won’t have anything to fall back on IF the C-19 really explodes like some are predicting. It will be worse than last spring/summer and the lack of funding will fall on them. I wonder where they will get all the money to repair all the riot damage in the demi controled cities (just so they can burn them down again ???).
Anybody want to join me on an island somewhere ?

I just do not understand we hear about Obamagate with Hillary etc. and all the crimes they committed, Biden Crime & his family of traders, voter fraud running ramped, the Democrats & so called main stream news outlets lying. lying, lying, spewing hate, trying to bully us, Pelosi and her thugs (most of the Democrats) not to be realistic about a stimulus package that will actually help people and not the Democratic agenda, Covid has become the Democratic Governors & Mayors way of telling us we can’t do this or that but they can fly here or there, have gatherings of more than 10 people & churches need to be closed but strip joints can stay open. AOC etc. trying to shove socialize down our throats even though we do not want it. Yet no one, not Barr, DOJ, FBI, CIA or any other agency has done anything. The only one helping us & fighting is Trump & his team, half the Republicans are worthless won’t help him just cut him down like looser Romney. If We the People do not take control soon they will ruin our great country.

I said this before; the election WAS RIGGED, but not how you think. The media rigged it by its unfair reporting on Trump and company, and TOTALLY IGNORING anything that tasted like democrap.

I wish more of Trump’s Team’ was standing beside him. Sounds like they have been bit” by the “forbiden promise” of a future with Biden. They will have a rude awakening when they realize how much more there is to loose. They need to come clean, before it’s too late.

So, they take out the money for “the People”, but keep the billions for the corrupt wasteful Democratic States? Looks like everything the Dems wanted is included and the People get the shaft!!! This is a bipartisan? What Republicans were involved in these negotiations, only RINOs like Murkowski?
