Nancy Pelosi says ‘no’ to liability protections for employers in new coronavirus rescue bill

Congress is gearing up for another coronavirus stimulus package, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is already throwing a fit about the GOP proposal — even though she says that passing further legislation is an “emergency.”

One stipulation of the forthcoming GOP plan is liability protections for employers of “essential workers,” but Pelosi ended any possibility of negotiations on the issue, arguing that liability protections are “unfair.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has described the inclusion of liability protections for business owners as a “red line” for Congressional negotiations.”If there’s any red line, it’s on litigation,” he said in May. “If there is another bill that passes in the Senate, it will include the liability protections.”

Nancy Pelosi will not even consider allowing the bill to contain such protections for business owners –– protections that are essential to allowing the economy to reopen and protecting employers from unreasonable litigation from employees.’

“One of the key themes … is the importance of limiting liability for those employers who act in good faith to comply with public health guidelines in protecting customers, employees, and vendors,” wrote Michele Nellenbach and Dane Stangler of the Federalist in July. “Employers of all types deserve clear guidance and protection from some degree of liability should exposure to COVID-19 occur as they seek a new normal in operations.”

“What we will not support is the following:” Pelosi explained. “What they’re saying to essential workers, you have to go to work because you’re essential. We’ve placed no responsibility on your employer to make that workplace safe and if you get sick, you have no recourse because we’ve given your employer protection. And if you don’t go to work because you’re afraid of being sick and you have that job opportunity, you don’t get unemployment insurance”

After making it clear that she’s not open to negotiation on the issue, Pelosi immediately pivoted to attacking President Trump in a rambling monologue, saying that the proposed liability protections are “so unfair,” adding “let’s just get to the heart of it.at the point of all of this is, this president — I have a new name for him, Mr. Make Matters Worse. He has made matters worse from the start.”

Pelosi and her Democrat colleagues have made it very clear that they will not negotiate with Republicans to secure a bipartisan deal, but will still place the blame on Republicans when protections from the Phase 3 bill elapse.

“This is an emergency,” Pelosi said in her speech making it clear that Democrats would slow-walk all GOP-led legislative negotiations. “Maybe they don’t understand. I don’t know what they have against working families in America.”

Lone Wolf you hit the nail on the head! Polosi and her husband get most of their money from the people in her district, mainly from money’s from federal government. Money for getting homeless off the street and into homes. But before the money hits her district she gets her percentage off the top. Thank God she’s a great Christian lady or she will take more from the people in her district.

Nope they r for themselves only !!! People r catching on to u Polosi !!!!!!!

I can’t even begin to address the complete insanity that Pelosi displays. She throws words out that are lies and have no bearing on the issue just to confuse people and make her look good. She doesn’t want to help the American people, just those who will help her party get elected. She needs to retire, just like her nephew, who are of no good to anyone.

Must not be too much of an emergency to the old lady. Must just be posturing for the publicity she so craves. Any legal citizen has the right to work, or if they are fearful due to so much misinformation, they can choose to open their job to someone else willing to work. It is not on the employer to take on responsibility for something so “easily” transmitted anywhere, NOT JUST IN THE WORKPLACE! That would be like saying I caught a cold (corona) virus from using Chevron’s gas pump versus the door handle at my doctor’s office.

This all about the Democrats’ primary goal, protecting their corrupt and treasonous activities! They have no regard for the American People, all that they want is more votes, legal or illegal. If we want to end the turmoil that’s taking place in our country, we should start by disbanding and defunding the Democrats! Prosecuting people like Obama, Biden, the Clintons (all of them), Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, Omar, AOC and the rest of the lying, cheating Democrat Party is something that every law abiding American Citizen wants. We need to get it done!

There you go! Nutty Nancy at the helm of the do nothing Democratic Party. She accuses our President of making matters worse while refusing to work in a bipartisan way to help make matters better. For 4 years their track record has been very dismal when it comes to working for the American people or making matters better. They will be remembered for their attempt to remove a duly elected President using falsified evidence and unethical procedures and practices. Nancy Pelosi has worked harder to try and remove the President from office during the last 4 years than she has in her entire political career. What has she actually accomplished for her district and our country? Try and remember anything she has done that would be notable that has her name on it! She is deliberately standing on holding up our economy for political gain and power at any cost! What is so prevalent here is she is playing political games at the expense of wellness and the betterment of our country and President Trump is not playing games. He simply wants to do what’s right for America… with or without her! Remember, she has turned her back on our country for the sake of gaining power and control of our government. It is the peoples government not hers! Let her know it in November!

Nancy is driven by 2 very strong emotions – fear and hatred. Fear of losing control of as much as she now controls and hatred of all who might, in any way, contribute to her losing control. She seems to have no moral (much less spiritual) foundation. She should not be making decisions that affect this great country.

For shame of you Pelosi and saying you will fumigate the White House to get our President out. Who do you think you are, that is NOT YOUR White House. It belongs to we Citizens who pay taxes and support our Wonderful President. You are a pathetic liar and a cheat. Will be glad when you are sent out of our Government.

Does Pelosi even realize how much the entire world hates her? She is a liar, a crook, and a hypocrite. She cares not one bit for the common American. If she did she would have made at least something better in her long tenure. People need to step back and really cut through her rhetoric and realize what she is. A communist with socialist backing.

Employers who are trying to follow guidelines should not be liable when and if employees catch the virus. Pelosi and her crooked friends dont want the economy to recover but would rather give them 600 dollars a week in unemployment than to put them back to work. 76 percent of those unemployed are making more than they did when working. Pelosi sees nothing wrong with this. O. Top of all this extra money they are receiving many aren’t having to pay their rent. What is wrong.g with this picture? Everything.

Through their own media supporter’s the news footage of lawlessness in our cities and the lefts political corruption is taking its toll on many in my democratic area. The demoncrates are exposing themselves! Our church has been praying to our God to remove the scales off their eyes to see what is actually happening. To see the way God see’s things. You know somthing? It isn’t going to be a very good ending for the demoncrates. Indictments and Impeachments. Start with Nancy Poloisi, or whatever her name is! Keep it up George Sorros!

Early in the game of this pandemic Pelosi and Schumer said they would work to take the economy the president had built and was building down. This refusal to allow legal protection for business against contract of the virus is just another tool Pelosi and the democrats are using to destroy the good things we have seen in the last 3 & 1/2 years. AND they both have PROMISED to remove and destroy everything we gained before the pandemic hit. I don’t care if you are democrat or republican. Should Joe Biden win this election and this congress maintain their position we are set to go back to the 1929 crash and it’s after effects. The history they are trying so hard to destroy is on the return trip right now. It’s not hard to figure out if you just look. All these democrat mayors and governors haven’t made these left sided decisions on their own. This is an organized movement coming from the top end of the democrat party. And WE ARE ALL going to suffer if they pull it off.
