Pelosi threatens to leverage her power to force Democrat agenda through Congress

Any time former President Donald Trump did anything the left didn’t agree with, they called him a dictator. However, with Democrats in power, brazenly authoritarian rule has become the norm in Washington, D.C.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has reportedly threatened to misuse Congressional budget reconciliation to ram through another COVID-19 stimulus package without Republican support. Once passed in the House of Representatives, it would enable the Senate to use the measure to rubberstamp anything the Democrats want.

“We will pass a reconciliation bill — if we need it,” Pelosi told reporters at a news conference Thursday. “We would hope that we would have bipartisan cooperation to meet the needs of the American people. I hope we don’t need it but if needed we will have it,” she said of the tactic.

Pelosi, who played politics for months while obstructing attempts to pass a second relief bill before the 2020 presidential election, will set up the process as a budget matter. When the Democrat-controlled House passes the budget resolution, it will head to the Senate where a simple majority will allow it to sail through, Fox News reported.

Because the Senate is a 50-50 tie, Vice President Kamala Harris would be the tiebreaker, meaning Republicans would be left powerless to stop it. The rules were meant to only apply to budgetary matters but when misused, they are troublingly powerful because they prevent a filibuster on the vote.

While Republicans agree that another COVID-19 package is necessary, the hefty $1.9 trillion relief gives many GOP lawmakers pause. Republicans are also concerned with additional stimulus money they already took a stand against while President Donald Trump was still in office due to the crushing deficit it would create.

“Our preference is to make this important work bipartisan, to include input, ideas, and revisions from our Republican colleagues or bipartisan efforts to do the same,” Rep. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said on the Senate floor Thursday. “But if our Republican colleagues decide to oppose this urgent and necessary legislation, we will have to move forward without them.”

Americans need relief from the coronavirus shutdowns the government has imposed on them. However, there is a process for passing legislation that is designed to make sure it truly is the will of the people as expressed by their representative government. As usual, the tyrannical left will run roughshod over the American people unconcerned with the authoritarian system they’re crafting.

Where is the money coming from, taxpayers, or print new. Either way the people pay through devaluation of the dollar, higher taxes or both,

“IF” (and that’s a BIG IF) this deficit ever gets repaid, it will be on the backs of our grandchildren, great grandchildren, great, great grandchildren…………. You get the picture ! J. Paul Getty once said that the U.S.A. could never go bankrupt because of the value of all the publicly held land “…and the resources they hold…” are worth an uncalculatalbe amount. Weeeeelll…..Lord Almighty Biden just stopped exploration and extraction of any of that wealth from public lands. Where do we go from here ????

Pelosi is pushing her luck. Unfortunately, the whole family isn’t really that bright. In fact, one of them, that is one of her asides, doesn’t understand the meaning SALAD!

She will probably send the bill to Social Security the way she usually does and take the seniors bread and potato funds to pay the bill for her.

Biden needs to have Pelosi and cohorts from Congress before she gets him in a war he can not win, the Military will go with their parents not back her and the traitors in Congress.

Impeach Puglosi for her insider stock trading , impeach Biden for his criminal activities with his son, confiscate all of the Dominion voting machines used to cause this bogus Nov. 3 election, correct the election results to show Trump won and that the Ga. election of the Democrat senators was a fraud.

Cuomo said that people died who cares where they died? That is not the question, he is deflecting from the real question. It isn’t where people died, the real question is why did they die. The only answer that I can come up with is Cuomo.

He don’t give a damn about these people that died. He’s a selfish self centered crook and this is the kind of politicians we have guiding us and our country. Sorry, sorry state of affairs we have. Clean up our government and political crisis. There must be more trusting and honest citizens out there to run our country.

This is just a [email protected] [email protected] to the republicans, [email protected] this with everything I want or else. Well if that is the way you want it go for it a lone. It will be on your head as to how you will pay for it. If you rob the seniors pensions I am quite sure they will remember, all seniors Dems Repubs and Libs. Who will show up for your next election. Probably Antifuka or maybe BLM.

Could not have expressed my thoughts any better than Dani. Everything he said I would LOVE to see happen, as soon as possible. Have to dispose of “Queen” Nancy FIRST. SINCE if Biden was out, Harris was out, then she would become president. That I COULD NOT STAND.

Their censoring definitely looks to be the same as MSM & high tech sites of FB, Twitter & aimed at taking away our first amendment rights to speak our against the one world global government. aka the new world order and INSIDERS. It appears they are either a part of the INSIDERS or else have a bad case of cowardice, which overwhelms their patriotism.

Somebody needs to open an investigation into the democrat party to find out if they have any ties to America!

Barbara (@guest_1120297)

The entire Democrat Party needs to be investigated from the Top down. There are so many dictators and power hungry communists in that Party disguised as actually elected officials that it is inconceivable they aren’t all working to make themselves rich. They are working SO HARD to insure their own well being; not that of the country.

And look at who is our VP. A woman who couldn’t even win a single primary election; who never secured more than 1% of the vote in any primary. What makes any Democrat, or anyone else, think they are creating Unity!! No one really wanted her, except for Willie Brown, of course. — It’s her HUSBAND that they really wanted. He’s the one that until recently was in a Legal Practice which boasted its strong ties to China. So now maybe we need to follow the money…which I am sure…will end up in the “right” pockets.
