Nancy Pelosi: Thousands are crumbs, hundreds significant

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), ever the political chameleon, has to own up to her own inconsistencies occasionally. In promoting her omnibus spending bill, which includes a COVID-19 relief package, Pelosi is touting the direct payment amount of $600 included as “significant.”

Because it is her bill, Pelosi wants Americans to believe that $600 is significant, but she seems to have short-term memory loss. In 2018, when President Trump’s tax cuts enabled many companies to give bonuses of $1,000 and more to their employees, Pelosi called the bonuses pathetic “crumbs.”

“In terms of the bonus that corporate America received versus the crumbs that they are giving to workers to kind of put the schmooze on is so pathetic,” Pelosi said at the time. Bonuses of $1,000 plus and higher wages were pathetic in 2018, but in 2020, $600 is significant.

President Trump countered Pelosi’s comments back then saying, “That’s not crumbs. That’s a lot of money.”

In a House speech touting this week’s legislation, Pelosi said, “We also have in the legislation direct payments. I would have liked them to have been bigger, but they are significant, and they will be going out soon.

Now, President Trump is asking Pelosi and Congress to send him a COVID-19 relief package that sends “a lot of money” to Americans. Instead of $600 per individual and up to $2400 per family, the president is asking for $2,000 per adult and $4,000 per family.

I am asking Congress to amend this bill and increase the ridiculously low $600 to $2,000 — or $4,000 for a couple,” Trump said in a video posted to Twitter late Tuesday.

The long-awaited relief bill, held up for months by Democrats to hurt President Trump, is supposed to make up for the months of lockdowns, especially in Democrat states and cities that have decimated small businesses and individuals.

In response to reporters’ questions regarding the smaller bill earlier in December, Pelosi said that the rejection of larger COVID-19 relief bills last summer was not a mistake. She rebuked a reporter for “characterizing” her actions as a mistake. She said it was a “decision.” Pelosi tacitly admitted that she and the House Democrats made a political decision to reject the earlier $1.7 and $1.8 trillion bills President Trump said he would sign.

Obviously, money is only a political tool for Pelosi and her ilk. The amount doesn’t matter, only the power it gives matters.

Representative Brian Babin (R-TX) pointed out that Pelosi is leveraging American misery for partisan gain. In a press conference, Pelosi tacitly admitted that she had held up relief for political gain. She admitted that it’s okay to go ahead with COVID-19 relief because “we have a new president now.”
