Mitch McConnell blasts Pelosi for holding out on virus relief

The COVID-19 relief bill, which finally came together and was passed in both chambers of Congress on Monday, was apparently unnecessarily politicized for a large portion of 2020, according to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

According to Breitbart, during an appearance Monday on Fox News’s “The Daily Briefing,” McConnell charged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) with responsibility for “shenanigans” that held up the COVID-19 relief bill for far too long — along with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. 

As McConnell explained, the massive relief bill, which will be the second relief bill directly helping Americans in need, could have been passed as early as July.

“We tried to pass — we started advocating that in July and August. The talks were unproductive. So, I essentially put that bill on the floor of the Senate in both September and October. Not a single Democrat supported it. Their view was: Give us everything we want, or we won’t give you anything,” McConnell said.

The Kentucky senator went on to emphasize that everything the Democrats gave them is what they were seeking in July, but he believes that Pelosi and Schumer played political games with the bill in order to prevent it from passing before the November 3 election, suggesting it was used as a tool to make President Donald Trump look bad.

“We got it done in exactly the same amounts and with the same configuration that we would have been able to do back in the summer, but for all the intervening election shenanigans on the side of the speaker and Democratic Leader — Schumer,” McConnell added.

According to NBC News, the COVID-19 relief bill passed through both the House and the Senate with no real issues and is expected to be signed by the president sooner than later.

The relief package will include direct stimulus payments to Americans in the amount of $600 and provide extensions to unemployment programs, the Paycheck Protection Program for small businesses and an extension to an eviction moratorium.

Definitely. Too many “getting away with things “ sit in Congress making too much $ at the expense of Americans. They obstructionism and their behavior is despicable. Ripping up a state that f the union address without consequence demonstrates and spews disrespect and hated which is opposite of what our country needs.

I prefer them getting the GITMO treatment. Forgive me, JESUS, but they deserve it. They should ALL leave this country because they treat it like dirt and if you REALLY want to see dirt, go to China where I lived in 2010. Instead of a trash bin dumpster, they dumped the garbage in a huge pile on the ground. My father, born and raised there, told me they made a National project in China to get rid of all the flies. I had to believe it when I saw ZERO flies over that heap of trash !!!

Why spend the fuel sending them to Gitmo . There should still be a federal prison in South Louisiana that would be more appropriate for the lowlifes of the country . Prison is surrounded by gators , water moccasins and Cajun hunters , Who I am sure would like to earn a couple of thousand dollars per bounty if they can make it back to civilization or out of confinement . Plus the Gators need feeding to grow . The criminals should feel at home with the monsters anyway .

U.S. Code Section 242 of Title 18, Deprivation of rights under color of law, makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.
For the purpose of Section 242, acts under “color of law” include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the their lawful authority, but also acts done beyond the bounds of that official’s lawful authority, if the acts are done while the official is purporting to or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties.

You can’t sit on your hands and expect “God to do something”. Got helps those who help themselves. Ask God for strength and ideas for you to do what is right. He has given you a mind, use it. Call and write your Congressman, vote them OUT. Support Trump in his endeavors to stop the corruption. He has exposed a lot of them but he cannot expel them. YOU MUST DO THAT. VOTE VOTE Trump has taken untold abuse for 4 years for US. It is our turn now. There is such a thing as filing a charge of Terroristic Threat against bullies.

In my opinion, it was the dems and REPUBS who orchestrated the coup to take out President Trump in the election. The Department of Justice and many of the COURTS were also in on it. If you believe anything else, you have sawdust for brains! He wouldn’t kiss their butts so they worked on a ‘crooked’ election to take him out!

President Kennedy wouldn’t kiss butt, either, with elites, and they took him out with bullets! In this age, they used machines and corrupted law enforcement, corrupted courts (justice is blind – what a joke – nowadays, everything is done by ‘party line’!) and dishonest, immoral poll workers! Welcome to Venezuela 2!

Well there is a special spot in Hell for them all. Especially the low life DOJ and FBI.
HEY AMERICAN PEOPLE WAKE UP. These swamp low life’s just tossed out your & our votes.
We finally found a tough president who believes in the American people and OUR way of life. The piceces of crap dem Nancy “wicked witch Pelosi and her 2nd pile of crap Schumer feel they can dictate / rig our Presidential election. I’m sure we can find a garbage truck which can hold all of them to the dump.

The way this was done it will be impossible to determine who won. To many illegal ballots have already been mixed in with legal ones and no way to determine which is which. The only way to do this is with a new election.

Are you all nuts supporting this maniac Trump…?
It is better than a nut that can’t remember who his old bag is even if she is a demonicrat.
It is better than a nut that would put a chain around your neck even if you are a demonicrat.
It is better than a nut that will give your job to an illegal even if you are a demonicrat.
It is better than a nut that would sell your kids to human traffickers even if you are a demonicrat.
It is better than a nut that would put you in jail for protecting your family even if you are demonicrat.
It is better than a nut that take your car an let you walk 20 miles to work even if you are a demonicrat.
It is better than a nut that would put you in the army and send you off to war even if you are a demonicrat.
It is better than a nut that would give vaccine to the world before your family even if you are a demonicrat.
It is better than a nut that would smell your little girls hair even if she is a demonicrat.
At least this nut knows where he is, where he is going, how to get there, and how to get back.
This is to much information for a demonicrat to handle. They go to school to be brainwashed, not really learn anything. So when they have to do something that requires any thinking they don’t know how.

To those at the Communist Network News, Dominion software’s tricks really are a conspiracy Theory. One that is drummed up by you. The simple truth is that Dominion conspired with the DNC and the Biden campaign to undermine the 2020 election, and that CNN, ABC, NBC, THE LAME DUCK MEDIA, and others that conspired to hide or suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story, and undermine the election are not only guilty of suppressing evidence they are guilty of treason, by trying to put a compromised ( and demented ) person in the office of the presidency thus undermining the security of the country. So as you can see there was a conspiracy to undermine not only the election but the country, by all of the above, that should be removed from the country.
Got along without you before I met you gona get along without you now. I call them the Lame Duck Media, because the are ducking their responsibility to the people, and as such should be removed from the country.

A part of the courts job is oversite, and if someone or some state is violating the constitution, then the court should step in, whether there is a complaint or brief filed in a lower court or the high court directly. If the court is not doing this then the court is not doing the do diligence it is suppose to do, to protect the constitution. And if the court is not going to do its job then it is up to we the people to do the job, and if we have to do the job then we just as well fire the court, we are the only ones that can. It makes no difference if a judge is conservative or liberal if the judge does not follow the constitution. The constitution was not put there to protect the legislature, the administration, or the court, it was put there to protect we the people, by putting in guide lines for the government to follow. When the government does not want to follow, then the government has to go. I think that the court gets so tongue tied with the literal meaning of the law that it forgets what its job is.

Since officials in a number of states have taken it upon themselves to make laws with out the legislative bodies in those states, that the constitution gives the legislative bodies the power to do. They are ignoring the constitution, and need to be reigned in. It is past time for the SCROTUS to do its do diligence, and step in, if the SCROTUS does not wish to do so, then we the people will have to do the job of the court, and we will not need the court.
Liberals think that they can change the laws just by wishing it, and that is wrong. That is the way kings and queens and tyrants rule, and that is why our forefathers wrote the constitution, to keep the corrupt from getting in power in government. That is why we have come to the point of needing to set term limits and to remove immunity that protects those that would try to abuse their position by creating greater transparency in the government.

I think that it was Kelly that said AOC likes to play the victim. Well ! AOC is right she is a victim. She is a victim of her own immaturity, and life experiences. Lets face it you don’t learn much getting drunk in a bar.
As far as her higher learning is concerned she needs to go back to the school she went to and get her money back. She did not learn a thing.

AOC should watch Bernie very carefully as Biden greases Bernie’s butt, just as Hillary did in the DNC primary. Good old Joe thinks of himself as the Godfather of the Chinese Mafia ( The DNC ). Dang Nabit Crooks.
