Pelosi’s subway project struck from COVID-19 relief bill

Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s $140 million subway project has been removed from the Senate’s COVID-19 stimulus bill, according to the Senate parliamentarian.

The $1.9 trillion COVID-19 stimulus bill has been panned as wasteful spending by many Republicans. Now we know why.

Among the many unrelated projects tucked within the stimulus bill includes a $140 million mass transit plan near Speaker Pelosi’s district. Some have even dubbed the ridiculous rail plan the “Pelosi Subway.”

Republican Senator John Barrasso even called it Pelosi’s “tunnel of love.” Pelosi’s office defended the project, claiming mass transit struggled during the pandemic and required increased funding.

Another proposal removed from the stimulus bill included $1.5 million for the Seaway International Bridge between New York and Canada. The push for moving the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour was also deleted from the bill.

Iowa Republican Congresswoman Ashley Hinson stated regarding the mass transit plan:

How insulting to the frontline workers who still have not received a COVID-19 vaccine, to the mom trying to pay rent while her small business is in danger, and what about the ER doctors and nurses treating kids rushed in for mental health crisis?

This is Washington pork spending at its worst, the kind the speaker puts in for herself.

The nation needs financial help, but a subway can certainly wait. One of the best ways government could assist would be to simply reopen schools and businesses.

But Pelosi’s home state, California, can’t even get this right. Instead, students have been without in-person learning for a full year, with business shuttered and residents moving out of the state. Americans need help, but not the kind Pelosi is recommending.

      1. pelosi must not believe in God or she would not have sold her soul to the devil. divine justice awaits!!

      2. Nancy Pelosi has done a good job in making people dislike her those caught at the capitol were Democrats, & Kamala Harris friends she released from jail from black Lives matter. did she use her power as a vice president or her money or Americans money?

        1. What I want to know from her is how much Soros paid her to deny the request for National Guard troops from the Capital Police Chief And a request from the Mayor of Washington D.C. Nancy it’s time for you to leave your position as Speaker of the House, leave Congress, and retire to your home in California with the High concrete wall all around the house. You’re safe there but you SCREW the people when you try to remove and stop the Wall being built to protect us. You’re one Piece of human garbage

  1. GOOD. About time the pork was removed from this bill. Nancy needs to be shown that she isn’t as powerful as she thinks. Only things related to the pandemic needs should be included in the bill, not Nancy’s whims.

  2. Liberals CONSTANTLY PROVE they are
    dysfunctional teen ages in their thinking.
    Cursed sick bastards.

  3. This stimulus should be only for Covid relief. Should not have any port in it and should actually give more for each individual as far as the stimulus check. Everything has gone up in price not to mention him what’s going to be happening to our nation now that utilities and gas are on the rise.

      1. 80 Million voting for Biden is not true, maybe 80 but not any way near 80 million! Just another lie to pretend he beat Trump. The whole world knows Trump won the election now they all need to be frightened when this major steal can happen in America you know the world is in trouble!

      2. 80 million people did not vote for Biden. Everyone knows this was stolen right in front of our faces and then the tally of voters crammed down our throats.

  4. plain old fashioned common sense NEVER GOT AQUAINTED WITH THE DEMOCRAPS. all they understand is KNEE-JERK AND PORK BARREL POLITICS..

  5. TERM LIMITS TERM LIMITS TERM LIMITS!!!!! Need politicians that aren’t bought & paid for by special interest groups & lobbyists!!!!

    1. Preach on, Brother! We do not need people making a career out of being in the House or the Senate. Presidents are limited to three terms (I think), why not limit Representatives to four two year terms and Senators to three six year terms? The only problem is that there are too many entrenched in Congress who have lost sight of the fact that they serve US, not themselves. Come election time, vote the old rascals out!

      1. Presidents only can have two terms. If American would stop voting same people in at every election maybe we would see a great change!! Americans wake up!!!!

      2. Presidents are only allowed 2 terms not 3 and yes I absolutely agree term limits are needed

    2. Yes! I totally agree. Look at what has happened to our beloved country because these people in government think that Washington D.C. is their playground and they are the bullies. We, the American citizens, are of no consequence to them.

  6. I agree–COVID stimulus should be used for THAT, alone. Liberals or Communists only have their pet projects. They are selfish and sick and, in general, total pieces of S**T.

  7. I pray all the money that Pelosi and Schumer had on their wish list will now go for helping all the children . Get them the emotional help they need , open their schools safely and allow them to see some of their friends safely. It’s time they have some what of a normal life again, it may help them will their depression , I pray it will 🙏🏼

    1. I agree with your suggestion and wish that some of that money those Dems want to squander would go to causes that help the PEOPLE, and NOT her! But unfortunately, Nancy Pelosi is so self-centered and selfish that she doesn’t care about the children and their needs because she can’t see beyond her nose.

      1. Oh, but I thought that nancy PIGLOSI was all for the children. She says it every time she stabs us in the back while smiling. “It’s for the children”

  8. Hey, Nancy! I need to remind you that you are Speaker of the House, NOT the Queen of America! America did away with that royalty crap when they fought the Revolutionary War! So if you still want that subway built to accommodate YOUR wishes, then BUILD IT YOURSELF!

  9. It’s about time congress do the right thing for the American people…ENOUGH OF THIS PET PROJECTS CRAP WE’RE TIRED OF IT. YOU CONGRESS WORK FOR US, IF YOU FORGET THAT, WE’LL SHOW YOU ON ELECTION DAY.

  10. PELOSI IS TRULY INSANE!! INSTEAD OF CONNIVING & ATTEMPTING TO DESTROY THE COUNTRY, SAME TIME WASTED ENERGY/CONTEMPT AGAINST (THEN) PRESIDENT TRUMP. OLD DRIED UP HAG SHOULD SIMPLY RETIRE & ENJOY “LIFE”. WHAT LITTLE TIME SHE HAS LEFT TO SPEND W/HUSBAND & HER WEALTH!!! STUPID FOOL SHE IS!!!!

  11. Nancy Pelosi needs to come back to California then jump off of the Golden Gate Bridge. She would be doing all of us a huge favor. She is such a pathetic woman who only cares about HERSELF. She needs to GO !!!!!
    She forgot that she works for US not the other way around.

  12. So, what pork is still left in the bill? What other things are in it that might hurt the American People rather than help them?

  13. “SHE KNOWS NOT WHAT SHE DOES!!” TIME for her EXIT!! Her “Boss” should not be in office, as well…He is mentally impaired…all age related…Time to resign!! We also need another Vice President…Harris is not qualified to run the country!!! If you have ever prayed…this is the time…God Bless America!

  14. This is the reason for TERM LIMITATIONS for all political officials. The longer they are in office, the more they forget the PEOPLE they are supposedly serving and the more they think only of themselves and their pet projects they want taxpayers to fund. 8 to 10 years maximum for all senators and representatives. Eliminate all the corruption ingovernment by votting these people OUT!

  15. Thank God our officials are looking out for us. There would have been no hope left if Pelosi got her pet projects. How dare that witch propose that much money for a flicking railway to nowhere as people are stuck in their homes anyways. The idiot selfish, evil witch that she is. Does she know just how much she is hated and doesn’t care enough as to put these ridiculous items in there against the American people? Please, im glad to see our Republican leaders actually fought it. This witch is evil and they all need to be impeached, really! It would be the most impeached all at once in history I’ll bet!

  16. IT’s TIME TO DITCH THE WITCH, NANCY PELOSI!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action?

    I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP in DC and DEMAND NANCY PELOSI BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE ABUSE OF POWER!

    People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

  17. Does Nancy cast a shadow? Seems to me she’s such a blood sucker she should get hence to California and audition for the next Dracula movie.

  18. Thank you to the Senators for pulling that pork out of the bill. Don’t know where they think the money is going to come from.

  19. Nancy why don’t you just jump off the Golden Gate Bridge and take the rest of your radical minions with you

  20. Pelosi is for Pelosi and all of her own desires. She doesn’t care about you or our students! She lives in a large house with guards (maybe armed) and a high WALL
    around her mansion.

    I live in California, and would move back to my home state of Texas; however, all of my kids, grandkids, great grands live here. However, I understand California folk are moving out in droves!!

    We probably have the highest taxes of all the states.

  21. I wish that all these remarks could be sent to Poleski. She needs to know what people really think of her. Evil and vengeful. She should fly off with her broom. She keeps saying I am doing all this for the American people. Ya right. You better repent for all the lies you tell. She is doing it all for herself. Like Schumer, Comuo, and other Dems. Especially Biden. He is brain dead. All these bills that hurt Americans.

  22. The federal taxpayer bailouts of California and New York states also needs to be struck from the bill. Then, we might actually have something worthwhile.
