James Woods went after Democrat Dianne Feinstein because she is asking for $5B in IMF (International Monetary Fund) emergency funds for Iran. The big problem is that the Senate just rejected more aid for AMERICAN small businesses.
Senator Ted Cruz also chimed in with his take on Senator Feinstein’s letter: “The Ayatollah leads chants of “death to America.” He pledges to destroy America, which he calls “the Great Satan.” And Senate Dems want to send him millions??? At the EXACT SAME TIME, Senate Dems are blocking desperately need relief to small businesses in America.”
James Woods: Democrats want to help Iran before small business owners in America.
They spit in the face of every American when they do it and have no shame whatsoever.
They never cease to amaze and disgust.
Earlier this week, Senate Democrats voted against $250B aid for small business owners:
Senate Democrats blocked a bid by the Republicans for $250 billion more for the Small Business Fund.
Majority Leader McConnell tweeted out after the effort failed in the Senate:
Senate Democrats just blocked urgent money for a popular, bipartisan job-saving program, which they themselves literally coauthored with us two weeks ago. I complimented both sides and asked to increase the dollar amount without changing anything else. But they blocked it.

According to Fox News, Democrats blocked the effort because they want add-ons to help businesses in disadvantaged communities and an additional $250 billion in funds for other priorities.
From what Leader McConnell says in his plea for the aid to pass, it sure sounds like he’s indicating that Democrats want pork added:
“My colleagues must not treat working Americans as political hostages. This does not have to be, nor should it be, contentious.”
“Please do not block emergency aid you do not even oppose, just because you want something more.”
Rep. Doug Collins: “Senate Democrats just blocked additional funding for small businesses. These funds are absolutely critical to ensuring American workers keep their jobs and small businesses stay afloat. Democrats should be ashamed for putting partisan politics over Americans’ livelihoods.”
Rep. Kevin McCarthy: “Disappointing and disgusting.17 million Americans have lost their jobs in three weeks. And yet Democrats just blocked critical aid for small businesses.”
Nancy Pelosi weighed in calling the move by McConnell a “stunt” and said there is “no data as to why we need it.”
