Skip to comments.Dem Rep. Told Colleagues Coronavirus Bill Is ‘Tremendous Opportunity to Restructure Things to Fit Our Vision’ [Clyburn- SC]

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.
Clyburns comments came on a Thursday call featuring more than 200 House Democrats, during which caucus members laid out a list of provisions they wanted to be included in the Senates trillion-dollar package.
Republicans have said that Democrats have reportedly demanded increased bargaining powers for unions, as well as environmental regulations for airlines and more wind and solar tax credits.
Pelosi flew into Washington, D.C. over the weekend to add demands to negotiations, a move that Senate Republicans have cited as the reason why the procedural vote to fast-track the legislation fell by a party-line vote on Sunday night.
Speaking after the vote, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) slammed Democrats for playing politics in a time of crisis. 14
All of a sudden, the Democratic leader and the speaker of the House shows up and were back to square one, McConnell said, saying the shift amounted to obstruction.
Were fiddling here, fiddling with the emotions of the American people, fiddling with the markets, fiddling with our health care. The American people expect us to act tomorrow, McConnell said. And I want everybody to fully understand if we arent able to act, itll be because of our colleagues on the other side continuing to dicker when the country expects us to come together and address this problem.
The World Health Organization put the death rate at a seriously false inflated rate, tanking the world economy, and yet we have some people still hyping the fear saying this will get worse (the death rate will go back up) when they dont know this as it dropped from 4.06% to 1.25% in less than a month.
It may go up and it may not, we dont know, but they know all. But all we actually have with knowable certainty and not the rampant seculation on their part are the stats we have right now as the WHO seems incompetent, yet they seem to trust them.
Democrats cannot be trusted. All they do is lie.
I hope people can see this in their living rooms across the country.
Stinkin old commie pavement ape.
Governors, even GOP Governors, are already pushing us toward socialism/communism at an accelerated rate.
Democrats = scum and swine.
Its the agenda first and foremost. No matter how many people it kills.
This is how they do things! create a crisis. Cause a breakdown in the civil order. Rush in during the ensuing confusion to establish a marxist paradise.
Do not doubt me.
I posted on another thread that President Trump should seriously consider cutting FEMA/CDC aid to any state or House district whose representatives are blocking relief efforts in Congress.
Pavement ape is living in a preoccupied fantasy world before the door slams shut on him.
Are you ready for CoronaCare? Typical of them. Like ObamaCare, instead of fixing a few things they threw it all out and replaced it with something they couldn’t explain, much less understand.
Pelosi, Schmanure, and the other Demons, are one-trick ponies.....believing they can ‘blackmail’ Trump into accepting ‘dumb Dem ideas.’
He can declare martial law and simply do what ever he wants.
Yep, and he should.
To Hell with these as-holes.
Cloward-Piven on steroids!..........................
I think he is. I see one after one governor putting some kind of lockdown then the fun begins.
None of that will happen, she lives in a dreamland.
The explosion of recovery will be swift and massive. It will begin in weeks, not months.
Overdoing Corona alarmism is just like climate alarmism and will be just as wrong, just much faster at being exposed as wrong.
No, these Democrats are in Rahm Emmanuel mode, of not wanting a crisis to go to waste. Shove it.
Let’s deal with the immediate issues, but I want this crisis to go to waste. If left up to them, the liberals will use this to push global warming and socialism in general and God knows what else.
Democrats are evil, without exception.
