The U.S. Senate approved significant financial assistance to alleviate the effects of the virus from the Communist Party of China (CCP), and it is now urgently anticipated that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will approve it, after several delays.
The $2 trillion aid package requires the approval of the Democratic majority House of Representatives, led by Pelosi, which could have been given on March 25, but Pelosi said the bill would only be debated as of March 27.
After arduous negotiations, in which she included a $350 million line item for illegal aliens, Pelosi gave priority to celebrating her birthday on March 26 over approving the much-needed funds for Americans.
“That’s not gonna work,” Pelosi told reporters, adding that it was unlikely to be approved quickly.
“Republicans have told us that’s not possible from their side. … What I’d like to see.. because this a $2 trillion bill—I’d like to see a good debate on the floor” she added.
Despite the urgent need, Democrats are trying to take advantage of the crisis the nation is going through to push through their policies.
“This is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision,” Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), told colleagues, according to the National Review.
Democrats previously had delayed passage of the financial aid bill.
“DSCC-backed candidates last weekend had no problem throwing partisan barbs at the same Republican senators working day and night to find solutions to the complex problems facing their constituents at home,” Jesse Hunt, director of communications for the Senate Republican National Committee (NRSC), said in a statement illustrating some of the difficulties.
All of the delays caused by the Democrats in approving the long-awaited aid package were rejected by many of the citizens, through the social networks.
The disaster caused by the CCP Virus, which originated in China and was hidden for months by the Chinese communist regime, continues to cause thousands of deaths and devastate the economy around the world, while governments struggle to counteract its impact.
