Well... It worked for her once under a much weaker President

| No Comments

Pelosi tried to pull the "you need to pass it so you can see what's in it" scam again - this time with the Wuhan Virus relief act (remember kiddies, all spending legislation originates in the House of Representatives). It was brimming with pork including Federally funded abortions. Here is an excerpt from an article at PJ Media:

No, The Coronavirus Emergency Spending Bill Still Hasn't Made It to the Senate. Here's Why
In the wee hours of Saturday morning, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 6201, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act after many negotiations between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin. Forty Republicans voted against the bill, sparking outrage from leftists on Twitter. Yet when the Senate returned on Monday, the House had yet to turn over the emergency coronavirus bill for passage.

As it turns out, "the bill remains hung up in negotiations between Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the White House," Politico reported, citing "multiple Capitol Hill sources."

More at the site - these three paragraphs caught my eye:

Gohmert released an in-depth statement on Saturday that helped clarify what had happened.

"There was a great deal more money in the original bill this week going to things that had nothing to do with our Coronavirus national emergency – including a provision that provided for federally funded abortions," he explained. "Our President stood firm on things that needed to be in there and to take out things that did not. As a good leader does, he left the specific language of the bill to the so-called experts in Congress. However, the actual wording is too often done by staff members who have never run a business, filed a quarterly tax report, or ever had to cut expenses to stay in business."

"I was proud of the work the President did negotiating, especially calling the Speaker’s bluff when she demanded a vote on Thursday because she was going to leave and not be there on Friday. Then she said she would not be here on Saturday so we had to vote right away to pass a bill before we knew what was in it. But with this bill, President Trump made clear that he did not want to destroy small businesses in our effort to help those who could not help themselves in this crisis," Gohmert added.

Representative Louie Gohmert is a National Treasure. Hold her feet to the fire and make her do her damned job. We The People are sick of this sort of crap.
