Will Nancy Pelosi continue pushing for a ‘Green New Deal’ item in the Coronavirus Stimulus Bill that was just approved by the Senate and White House overnight?

The Bill includes:

– $250 billion for direct payments to individuals/families
– $250 billion in unemployment insurance
– $500 billion for distressed companies
– $367 billion for small businesses
– $130 billion for hospitals
– $150 billion for state and local governments

House passage is uncertain because Speaker Pelosi didn’t give her “full endorsement” to the stimulus and didn’t confirm that the House would “move forward with it.”

NBC News on the uncertainty of the stimulus plan in the House: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Wednesday that the legislation would help American workers — but she did not indicate whether the House will move forward with it.

Pelosi made a statement yesterday about what she calls “shared value” and it couldn’t be more out of touch with the current crisis:

Josh Hawley tweeted:

This is officially insane. While workers lose their jobs, families struggle to pay rent, and patients battle for their lives, Nancy Pelosi & the Dems are holding up relief because … the Green New Deal?

“There is a whole concern in our country that if we’re giving tens of billions of dollars to the airlines, that we could at least have a shared value about what happens to the environment.”

Treasury Secretary Mnuchin spoke about Pelosi after the deal was made with the Senate:

“I can’t speak for the Speaker. I hope she takes it up and she passes as-is. We need, we need this to get working for the American people. And, again, there are a lot of compromises. It’s a terrific bill, and it was a great accomplishment on everyone.”

Pelosi released a statement on Wednesday morning:

“House Democrats will now review the final provisions and legislative text of the agreement to determine a course of action.”

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

“Everything we are suggesting just relates to Covid-19. It is not about making [policy] for the future… It is not changing policy except as it applies here.”

This is a complete and total lie. Notice that Bash did nothing to push back on Pelosi’s claim.

Yesterday afternoon, Senator Tom Cotton (R-AK) shared a stunning list of items Democrats tried to slip into the coronavirus aid bill that was supposed to help struggling Americans by sending them cash payments that would average about $3,000 per family. The bill was intended to help cash strapped and frightened Americans by expanding unemployment insurance. 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.

Democrats had a different idea, however, about the purpose of the bill intended to help struggling Americans and businesses.

Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton tweeted about how Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi interceded in the passing of the Senate bill to stop them at the final hour from passing much-needed help for Americans.

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:

In a series of subsequent tweets, Senator Cotton provided a stunning list of goodies Democrats tried to slip into the coronavirus funding bill. We have shared them in one easy-to-read list:
