Nancy Pelosi was speaking to CNN’s Dana Bash about her suggestions for the coronavirus bill and said:

The bill was supposed to help small businesses by giving them an infusion of aid in the amount of $350 billion while providing $500 billion in loans to industries devastated by the shutdown of businesses and slowed economy.

Families and businesses need help now to survive the China virus pandemic. But @SpeakerPelosi walked away from negotiations to write her own bill, full of absurd provisions completely unrelated to the crisis at hand. Here’s what Speaker Pelosi is demanding while Americans suffer:
