Default Nancy Pelosi and the stimulus package

Just last night, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced her opposition to a stimulus package that would have put $1,200 in the pocket of every individual, while giving $2,400 for every family in America.

She claimed that her opposition was rooted in the fact that it was (supposedly) weighted too much toward corporations.

Well, I think that it would be a serious mistake to simply pull the bill, and admit defeat.

Rather, I would force the House members to vote on it. We would then see who cared more about their constituents' desires, and who cared more about placating Nancy Pelosi.

My view is that the voters would not forget, either, when November rolls around...

The wrench was headed for the spokes no matter what . . . Never let a crisis go to waste!
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) worked to scupper the phase-three coronavirus relief package on Sunday after Majority Whip James Clyburn (D., S.C.) told caucus members last week that the bill was “a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.”

https://www.nationalreview.com/news/...it-our-vision/
Here's some of the most pressing and vital initiatives in the House bill to address the COVID-19 pandemic crisis:

-Publication of corporate pay statistics by race and race statistics for all corporate boards of any company helped.

-A bail out on all current debt at the Postal Service

-Require states to have early voting

-Require states to have same day voter registration

-New rules expanding union collective bargaining

-Demand full offset of airline carbon emissions by 2025

-Publication and reporting of greenhouse gas statistics for individual flights

-Retirement plans for community newspaper employees

-Federal $15 minimum wage for federal contacts

-Permanent paid leave

-Reporting of climate change mitigation efforts for companies helped by the bill.

The Democrats , led by Speaker Pelosi, want funding for Planned Parenthood in the Coronavirus stimulus package. I would suggest if instead of funding the abortion mills, what if they told PP to close for two weeks? It would save money and more lives than the virus will have taken.

Why not? What have they got to lose?

BTW, Isn't abortion considered an elective surgery? Then why are they performing them?

Yes, I thoroughly agree with you here, in your view that abortion is elective surgery.

Some people, however, evidently do not.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy--who has banned all "elective" surgeries, statewide--has since noted that the order includes an "explicit exemption" for aborting unborn babies.

The people who think it is a woman's right to have an unborn baby butchered do not look at abortion as elective surgery, but as a "constitutional" right.

4 people die of Covid-19 and the state goes on lockdown
35 babies are harvested for parts at a Planned Parenthood Center and it is business as usual.

Got it!
