There is no sane reason why House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would ride in from an extended vacation and wreck a bipartisan bill that Republicans and Democrats had spent hours negotiating over. The bill was there to help Americans get the economic relief they’d need to weather the storm caused by the Chinese Coronvirus now plaguing us, not just in health but economically. Why anyone would attempt to swoop in and destroy its passage when Americans are waiting for it is beyond me, save for small government reasons.
I could respect arguments toward not putting out a costly stimulus package, but that’s not what Pelosi did. She walked in and began demanding that more costly things be put into the bill, some of which come straight out of the Green New Deal, which Democrats found so asinine that they wouldn’t put themselves on record as voting for it.
