Nancy Pelosi said five words that Donald Trump did not want to hear
Nancy Pelosi is gearing up for her next fight with President Trump.
After suffering defeat after defeat on the previous rounds of negotiations Pelosi is determined to pull out a victory.
And Nancy Pelosi said five words that Donald Trump did not want to hear.
Democrats are gearing up for another round of negotiations on coronavirus relief legislation.
In the past three bills, Republicans blocked Democrats from including welfare handouts, “Green New Deal” provisions, and funding for a “cheat by mail” voter fraud scheme.
But with another bill on the horizon Pelosi is telling Democrats “we have to think big.”
POLITICO exclusively reports:
On a private call with members Monday afternoon, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her deputies sketched the outline of a trillion-dollar-plus package that would deliver aid to state and local governments — some on the brink of public service cuts — while shoring up safety-net programs for the nation’s most vulnerable.
“We have to think big,” Pelosi (D-Calif.) told her members several times on the call.
Pelosi is pushing committee chairs to finalize their portions by close of business Monday with hopes of pulling together a final package by week’s end, according to multiple Democratic lawmakers and aides. The bill could reach the floor for a vote as soon as next week, although several top Democrats are skeptical of that timeline given the scope of the legislation and uncertainty over when House members will return to Washington.
This next round of coronavirus spending will focus on bailing out blue state budgets.
Democrats want Republicans to fund bailouts for bloated public employee pension funds that Democrat Governors refused to fund for years.
Speaker Pelosi already floated a one trillion dollar price tag.
Pelosi and her allies think they can threaten the President with images of laid off first responders in the middle of a pandemic to get the GOP to accept this blue state bailout.
