The latest stunt our Congressional Democrats have just pulled with regard to the stimulus bill that had bipartisan support has to be one of the biggest “ARE YOU KIDDING ME????” moments in our nation’s history.
Legislators on both sides of the aisle had hammered out a deal over the weekend that would have taken steps to give everyday Americans a hand up as we deal with the DTMNBN (the Disease That May Not Be Named) pandemic. Still, Nancy Pelosi threw that all out of the window when she put another pork-loaded bill on the table in its place.
Speaking for myself, I’ve gotten to where I can’t STAND listening to Speaker Pelosi. I have to switch her off when she starts trying to con us with that sickly-sweet syrupy snake-charmer voice while looking down her nose at the rest of us peons that don’t have multiple millions of dollars squirreled away to fall back on as she tries to make us believe that the pork she’s trying to slip by us is important.
It seems that Donald Trump Jr. has a similar feeling about her. On Monday, he lobbed some cannonballs on the Democrats for blocking the bipartisan economic relief package providing aid to the American people during the DTMNBN pandemic. The way he phrased it was that they “only changed their minds when they figured out that five GOP senators would not be able to vote on it because they were self quarantining.”
Senate Democrats blocked an economic relief package negotiated by both sides — a negotiation that began to fall apart, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said, after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) intervened.
“She’s the speaker of the House, not the speaker of the Senate,” he said. “We were doing just fine until that intervention.”
Trump Jr. added further context to the initial breakdown of the deal, adding that Senate Democrats changed their minds “when they figured out that five GOP senators would not be able to vote on it because they were self quarantining.”
“Sick even by todays Democrat standards,” he added:
So Democrats agreed to the bailout bill in theory but only changed their minds when they figured out that five GOP senators would not be able to vote on it because they were self quarantining.
Sick even by todays Democrat standards.

Those five GOP senators who are under quarantine include Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who tested positive for the virus, as well as Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT), Mitt Romney (R-UT), Rick Scott (R-FL), and Cory Gardner (R-CO):
THE SENATE is now 48 R -47 D
Sens. Lee, Romney, Scott of Florida, Paul and Gardner are all quarantining.

Both sides remain at an impasse as Democrats push a bill packed with measures unrelated to the economic relief needed during the coronavirus pandemic. Some of those proposals include same-day voter registration and a U.S. postal service bailout. They are also calling for U.S. airlines to offset their carbon emissions:
I can confirm this. This is what Democrats torpedoed the rescue package for.
This will go down as one of the most cynical, disgusting, malevolent actions in history. Millions are losing jobs while they play these games. https://t.co/SUCtYxmXGo

From where I sit, I feel that what she’s is really saying is this: “This hasn’t killed enough of you peasants and done enough damage to the economy yet. We still want to blame Trump for this and call you bad names when you say you want Trump’s plan. If you want relief, you will give us money for all of these pet multi-trillion-dollar projects we want to shove down your throat that we can’t sneak by you any other way!”
So…what about all of you old loyal die-hard Democrats? Have you had enough yet? Are you going to continue in lock-step with that piece of work that currently sits in the chair of the Speaker of the House and defend everything that anybody with a (D) behind their name proposes? Or are you going to wake up and smell the coffee?? Are you ever going to reach that moment of clarity and recognize that this is NOT the Democrat party of John F. Kennedy?
President Trump has busted his butt night and day since the moment he stepped into the White House trying to turn this country around and get us unshackled from the chains of decades-old Democrat plantation-inducing policies. All he and the rest of America have gotten from the Left since he won the election is foot-dragging obstructionism and every kind of stupid legal challenge up to and including an attempted impeachment. This latest stunt of Pelosi’s is just another shot at Americans that clearly illustrates how much she hates us.
