Pelosi ends potential for short-term unemployment benefit extension

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) again refused to cooperate with a proposal to extend a short-term unemployment relief deal while Congress works through the larger coronavirus relief bill.

Pelosi ended the discussion on Thursday by announcing “we’re not having short-term extensions” of the now-expired $600 per week unemployment benefit included in the last coronavirus stimulus bill. 

Democrats are attempting to blame Republicans for holding up negotiations on the bill even as Democrat leaders openly reject all GOP attempts to negotiate. Progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Tuesday:

Pretty nauseating how easily Congress rubber stamped a $4 trillion dark slush fund for Wall St as “COVID relief,” yet somehow $600 for workers in pandemic is controversial. Up close it’s staggering how much resistance there is in Washington to actually helping people directly.

Ocasio-Cortez did not address Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) repeated rejection of GOP and White House proposals to come to an agreement.

Pelosi and Schumer placed the blame on Republicans for “nickel and diming” Democrats.

“Think big because this is a big challenge and it will only get worse if we do not make the necessary investment,” Pelosi said. “Pay now or pay later — much more later.”

Talks over the bill have dragged on for months and are expected to continue through the rest of the week.

    1. YOU NEED TO SHOW THESE DEMOCRATS THAT YOU DON’T GIVE A D___ ABOUT WHAT THEY THINK.
      MR. PRESIDENT CAN YOU NOT OVERRIDE THE DECISIONS OF THESE JERKS. LET’S DO THIS STOP THE PAY AND VACATIONS FOR THESE JERKS SEE IF THEY CAN COME UP WITH A SOLUTION FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. NOT FOR POCKETS OF THE DEMOCRATS AND OR THEIR BUDDIES. YOU GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL NEED TO START DOING WHATS RIGHT FOR THE PEOPLE THAT PUT YOU IN THE POSITION YOUR in.

      1. God gone fix this mess how He wants it. Its his world and creation. Let my people Alone or you shall see more wrath for Repub.and Trump. Stop turning the blind eye. Fools of Prey

        1. Again, you are going off the deep end. Do you realize that it is the Democrat run cities that are outlawing church during the virus shutdown? You can have an abortion, that’s OK, but you can’t go to church. You need to find another excuse for your “butt’ thinking!

  3. Democrats only claim to fame is that they are really really good at LYING. No negotiation when Democraps refuse to talk

  4. Pelosi has no intentions in help people or the economy.not in her agenda.she has used the virus from day one.kill the economy.use it to cheat in mail in voting.blmob helped her keep the virus going..

  6. Republicans need to get it together.we know the demirats are the problem but does thr GOP speak up raise hell about what the demicratic party is doing what they really want, which is to help the blue states. And their buddies out their. And items that have nothing to do with the virus. Just their own special interestthey don’t care about the American people period.

  7. Sad but Ug truly believes all she says and promotes come from the new President,herself. I’m second in line to be President is her new theme song and nightly dream.

    1. You gotta be kidding. NP hasent the balls( nor intelligence) to do more than run her ugly mouth. Someone should stuff a dirty sock in it.!!!!!!!

  8. Your forgetting that all the new prints is what the Democratics wants them to say so no one knows what they are doing. Belittling President Trump is all they are concerned about .

    1. That is so true. Republicans are talking about the stimulus and will not pass it in the senate as long as the democrats keep putting their wish lists in the bill. The mainstream media will not air the republicans side of the problem. The only way you find out what is really going on is by researching online. So many people don’t know the truth and for one reason or another don’t have access to the internet. The media should be sued for withholding information and lying to the public. I wonder if they can be sued? Like a class action lawsuit.

  9. I wish President Trump could exercise an executive order that would get rid of these worthless do-nothing Democrat traitors, starting with Pelosi and Schumer.

    1. WHY CAN’T HE? IS THERE NOT A LAW FOR FIRING PEOPLE FROM THESE POSITIONS IF THEY DO NOT DO THEIR JOBS.
      I AM SO SICK OF THESE PEOPLE
      WHY DO WE HAVE A PRESIDENT? HE SHOULD HAVE THE LAST SAY SO ABOUT EVERYTHING, NOT CONGREDD OR ANY OTHER OFFICE.

  11. Pelosi and her stupid, arrogant, neurotic bastards are full of BS and anyone who supports their crap will be the first to feel the pain if they believe in their ideology. Why has’nt Nancy been fined and jailed for tearing up the Presidents speech a couple of months back. Why haven’t the Democrats been investigated more, one at a time, so we can jail each of them for their part in trying to get Trump out of the presidency and why haven’t they been put in jail for all the BS lies they have spread about Trump. Also, I want to see a list, including Obama and his cabinet, of those who have received money for their campaigns from George Soris and his companies. George Soros is the devil behind all that’s going on ie riots in our country. Take his citizenship away from this evil man and advise him to not return to the US. Obviously, the reason the Democrats seem so emboldened is that they are supported by Soros for their elections. They owe him and obviously feel they can destroy this great country so they can pocket the the bloody money and have more power over us that this heretic gives them. Power and money have destroyed many great people in our history and by the size of it they are destroying us. The people they claim to represent are the ones who get hurt and it’s time for them to stop lying and be punished for their radical leanings. Soros and his cronies, not to mention people with Google, Apple, Amazon,Microsoft and others have all gone out of their way to destroy our country. Personally, I pray they will go to hell for the evil they pursue and for trying to destroy this country. Time for all people to STAND UP against these communists because if we be don’t we will lose the very foundation of our freedoms and self reliance to live up to what our country was founded on. President Trump, like him or not, has done more for our country and our citizens than any President before him. He is working for us and we need to defeat every Democrat and Rhino out there to continue to live in a free society. STAND UP AGAINST THE RADICAL LEFT! VOTE FOR DONALD J. TRUMP 2020!!!!!

    1. George Soros makes no secret about the fact that he is doing everything in his power to overthrow our government. He is clearly a traitor and should be treated as such.

  12. THE DEMS WANT TO HAVE THIS “RIDICULOUS” AMOUNT OF A “STIMULUS” BILL SO THEY CAN BLAME THE PRESIDENT FOR THE DEBIT ON OUR COUNTRY!!!!!!!! AND SAY HE RAN IT UP BY TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS!!!!!!!! I CERTAINLY HOPE THAT THE PRESIDENT DOES “NOT CAVE” TO THE BILL THEY HAVE PROPOSED??????????? MOST OF WHAT THEY HAVE IN THE BILL HAS “NOTHING” TO DO WITH HELPING THE PEOPLE GO BACK TO WORK!!!!!!!!!! PEOPLE WANT TO GO BACK TO WORK!!!!!! SOME WERE OFFERED JOBS……BUT THEY WERE GETTING MORE ON UNEMPLOYMENT…..SO THEY CHOOSE TO STAY HOME!!!!!!! WHAT THEY DID NOT THINK ABOUT WAS “UNEMPLOYMENT” FUNDS HAVE A TIME LIMIT????????? THE COMMUNIST (DEMS)
    DO NOT EVEN CARE ABOUT THE PEOPLE AND THEIR WELFARE………THEY JUST WANT “CONTROL”!!!!!!!!!!

  13. S.L., loved your response. Great job! We need more people like you to speak out and make their voices known!!!

  14. Its time for a Big Change ! Pelosi and Schumer need to go . The country and its people come first not the Democratic party first !!!!!!!! The people put them in office and the people will take them out, and to jail I hope!!!

  15. As usual, Swamp Queen Pelosi doesn’t have the ability to take responsibility for her action (or lack thereof) but instead must lie and blame others for her failure to honestly work with the Republicans. She wants to add too much special features for her favorite special interests to help by her re-election. So corrupt! Chuck The Schmuck Schumer isn’t much better. He appears to be tied to her apron strings and can’t think for himself. He must obey her. What a weak leader he is.

  16. Piglosi is a nasty stain in our society! She cares nothing about our country or our people, as long as she can get what she wants for HER pet projects, which have NOTHING to do with the covid crisis, which the demonrats perpetrated in the first place! She lied about it bieng a problem, invited people to visit China town in San Francisco, and said it wasn’t a serious threat! She is a liar, user, abuser, not fit to be the speaker of the house! Not fit for ANY position in our government! It is time to impeach her and scheming screwmer! Call your congressmen and demand impeachment! Get them OUT!! And schiff, Nadler and the rest of the sewer rats!
