With Lives and the Economy on the Line, Nancy Pelosi Stalls Wuhan Coronavirus Relief Bill

Shameful.

Utterly, despicably shameful.

Having tried and failed in the first half of this to lard up the coronavirus relief bill with extraneous goodies and intrusive regulations to please her rabidly progressive constituency, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has decided to take her bat and ball and go home for the day.

512





Congressman Steve Scalise -- the near-assassination victim of a particularly-energetic Bernie Bro, if you'll recall -- weighed in, too.








Steve Scalise



512

How was this worth it?



We're in a situation where every day, every hour counts. Every day that passes without a paycheck or unemployment relief is a day untold numbers of families grow closer to losing their homes. Every hour that money doesn't go out to manufacturers is another hour hospitals have to wait for masks and ventilators. Every hour some sick New Yorker has to wait for another hospital bed. Every dinner out postponed, every canceled event, every missed business opportunity is another step closer to economic collapse.



It doesn't have to be this way. Congress knows what to do: Pass a clean bill and get it on the President's desk. Pronto.

But instead we get this.




There's been nothing new on the Speaker's Twitter feed since yesterday. Nothing since Monday on her official site or Facebook page. However, literally as I was writing the previous sentence, this just came into my news feed:   Speaker Pelosi Signals She May Support Bipartisan Senate Coronavirus Package.

Details are thin, but here's what we have:

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi signaled Wednesday she may support a bipartisan Coronavirus relief bill making its way through the United States; saying the legislation meets the “needs of the American people.”

“America is facing a grave health crisis with a serious impact on our economy. I salute the strong leadership of Chuck Schumer and Senate Democrats,” she said Wednesday. “I especially thank our House Democratic Committee Chairmen, who worked hard to move the Republican proposal from corporations-focused to workers-first and who will now review the legislative text of this agreement with our Caucus.”

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

"Bipartisan" at least in the sense that Senators of both parties rejected her attempt to turn a relief package into a Democrat Christmas list.

Pelosi's statement came barely any time at all after she dismissed the House this morning, so we might have just witnessed the fastest fold in Congressional history. Or maybe she's figured out how to get some of her goodies back into the bill. We might not know which until Pelosi deigns to hold a vote, and meanwhile, the clock is ticking for millions of American families and tens of thousands of America's infected.

The Senate has to vote on it first. They have not voted as of this minute. They are expected to vote on it later this afternoon. 

It will then go back to the house who is on recess. The lower house can vote on it and if there are no nays the bill is passed. If there are nays than the whole house will have to vote on it 

At this time both your article and 1st comment are BS.

I lived in MO in Oct of 2018 so I early voted there. 

I moved to FL in mid-October. 

That isn't even a good try, a 1st grader could have done better. 

But whatever you can spout to cover your obvious BS article.

Yep. Pelosi said she would use a procedural vote to let it pass. If one person objected then it would not pass and then she would have to call the house in for a vote, which she did not want to do and have them all gather together, with the risks of that.

What to look for is someone in the house objecting to it.

At this time both your article and 1st comment are BS

They can never tell the whole truth and twist things to fit their narrative. Then they have the nerve to point the fingers at others for politicizing it.

I think I have run onto that website and think I know exactly who you refer to.

Didn't look to me like that person had any time for anything other than "I Hate Trump" nonsense.

Even after the Russia collusion hoax blew up!

I wish people would be more honest. This isn't about just the Speaker. From the Washington Post .

The Senate is aiming to vote Wednesday on a $2 trillion stimulus package that is designed to flood the U.S. economy with money in an effort to stabilize households and businesses that have been floored by the coronavirus outbreak.

But Senate leaders were still working to avoid a number of last-minute snags. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, demanded changes to help his state deal with a flood of new cases. Three Republican senators said a drafting error in the bill needed to be fixed immediately or it would incentivize people not to return to work. And House Democrats wouldn’t provide a firm timeline of when they would vote to pass the bill.

So it's the Governor of NY and 3 Republican Senators.

Try to keep up Wally.  Is is still in the Senate, it has nothing to do with the House.  Currently 3 REPUBLICAN Senators are holding things up.

and 3 Republican Senators.

From Slate.com

...the aid package expands unemployment insurance by offering workers a flat, additional weekly payment of $600 on top of whatever benefits they’d typically be eligible for, for four months. As a result, some former workers would stand to make more on unemployment than if they kept their jobs. At a press conference this afternoon, Sens. Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott of South Carolina, Rick Scott of Florida, and Ben Sasse of Nebraska now said they were worried this would encourage some Americans to leave their jobs, including in industries that are essential during the crisis. As Sasse put it:

"We don’t want to do anything that would accelerate shortages in critical supply chain and workforce pathways inside some of the critical industries in America. And by critical industries in America, I mean health aides. And I mean grocers, and people operating the takeout and deli, and people doing local food delivery, and garbagemen. Lots of the important industries in America have median wages that are lower than what would happen under the unemployment benefits portion of this bill. And so we don’t want to accelerate the severing of that employee-employer relationship."

So no, it's not Pelosi. AOC though, she may be a problem. From CNN.com

On Wednesday, Ocasio-Cortez told CNN she is not ruling out asking for a recorded vote, which would force lawmakers to return to Washington and vote in-person, something that most members of Congress are eager to avoid amid the coronavirus pandemic.
