Senator Mitch McConnell hammered Pelosi and Democrats for their sudden opposition to the coronavirus stimulus plan.
The Senators had been working all weekend on the stimulus plan and then Pelosi came back from California to put a stop to the plan. McConnell called her out on the Senate floor yesterday.
McConnell explains why the procedural vote failed:
Everything was going well, “Then all of a sudden the democratic leader and speaker of the house show up & we’re back to square one.”
WOW. You knew it was coming.
Pelosi and Schumer are demanding airline fuel emissions, wind and solar tax credits, and increased collective bargaining power for unions in the pandemic relief package. They are holding up checks to Americans to please their donors.
