Nancy Pelosi Adjourns House For Entire Day, Refuses To Set Vote On Stimulus Bill

Nancy Pelosi is continuing to play despicable games with American lives and livelihoods. This morning, as welcome news came that there was an agreement on the Senate $2 Trillion stimulus bill, Speaker Denture-Sucker gaveled the House into session, and then shut it all down TWO minutes later.

Did you get that? With Nancy shutting the House of Representatives down until tomorrow, there is zero chance that the stimulus bill, WHICH SHE HAD A ROLE IN CRAFTING, will be voted on by the House.

I am so flipping angry. It was all I could do to not hurl things across the room. Just last evening she was blathering to Andrea Mitchell about ‘taking care of the workforce.’

I guess her idea of taking care of the workforce is to stall on a piece of legislation that is designed to bring near immediate relief to the hundreds of thousands of people out of work around this country.

While we don’t know everything that is in the bill, we do have an idea of some of the larger pieces.

“About $500 billion in direct payments to American workers and families:
Individuals with federally adjusted annual incomes of less than $75,000 would get checks for $1,200.
Married couples making up to $150,000 would get checks for $2,400.
Families in qualifying households would get $500 per child.
About 90% of Americans would qualify for government checks, though the amount decreases for those making more than $75,000 a year, with an income cap of $99,000 for individuals and $198,000 for couples.
Unemployment insurance benefits would get a $250 billion boost — adding $600 per week to current benefits and covering gig workers such as Uber drivers for the first time.
$500 billion in subsidized loans for big businesses.
$150 billion of stimulus spending for states and local governments.
$130 billion for hospitals.”

In looking at that, there are significant changes to the earlier version of the Senate legislation. The earlier version had $350 billion for small business, that number is now $367 billion. The earlier version also had about $75 billion for hospitals, so $130 billion is a significant increase.

One thing I’m sure all Democrats are pleased about is this piece. 

“The legislation ensures that these taxpayer-backed loans cannot go to firms owned by President Trump, other White House officials or members of Congress. This would suggest that Trump-owned properties, including hotels that have been impacted, cannot seek taxpayer assistance.”

Hopefully there is nothing in the legislation that will keep those who WORK at a Trump property from seeking assistance if they need it.

The Senate is slated to vote on the legislation this afternoon. What the House SHOULD be doing is stay in session and be ready to discuss and vote on the bill TODAY. Instead, Nancy is playing MORE games because politics. 

“This bipartisan legislation takes us a long way down the road in meeting the needs of the American people,” Pelosi said.

While the speaker said that it meets some of the Democrats’ demands, she did not say if or when or how the House would take it up if the Senate passes it as is expected.

“House Democrats will now review the final provisions and legislative text of the agreement to determine a course of action,” Pelosi said.

Shortly after Pelosi released her statement, the House adjourned until 11 a.m. Thursday. This means that even if the Senate passes the package Wednesday, it is likely the House would not act on it until Thursday, according to a Democratic leadership source.”

ELEVEN AM Thursday is when the House supposedly will gavel back in. Supposedly the House will then discuss and vote on the bill.

So help me, if any Democrat objects  because one of their pet political projects didn’t make it into the stimulus bill… This is the laundry list the Democrats wanted in the stimulus bill.

Read the entire thread. Bookmark it and remember it. Meanwhile, in the Senate. 

There is absolutely NO reason for the House to have adjourned today. The House of Representatives needs to know that this is definitely not the time for despicable political games. Remember this in November folks. Remember it all.

Meanwhile, here’s hoping Tim Send’s tweets will help me calm down.
