An elected official responsible for ensuring the Democratic Party passes legislation in the House agreed to give financial relief to struggling Americans.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has finally decided to cooperate with President Trump on approving the next round of CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus stimulus checks.
“Mr. President, sign the bill to keep government open,” she said on Twitter.
Pelosi ordered the president to speak with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) to increase individual checks from $600 to $2,000 quickly.
“Urge McConnell and McCarthy to agree with the Democratic unanimous consent request for $2,000 direct payments,” she said. “This can be done by noon on Christmas Eve!”
Pelosi criticized the Republican Party for not stating exactly how much President Trump was willing to approve.
“Republicans repeatedly refused to say what amount the president wanted for direct checks,” she said on Twitter. “At last, the president has agreed to $2,000—Democrats are ready to bring this to the floor this week by unanimous consent. Let’s do it!”
The remarks came after Pelosi admitted she deliberately delayed CCP Virus stimulus packages in Congress due to party politics.
The House speaker openly revealed she thought it would be a good idea to let businesses and workers struggle to survive during government restrictions intended to contain the deadly disease.
“What was then before was not more of this,” she said in a video shared on Facebook. “This has simplicity, it’s what we had in our bills, it’s for a shorter period of time but that’s okay now because we have a new president.”
Pelosi had accused the president of negligence even though she has been unwilling to settle for anything less than the $2.2 trillion package she wanted to spend according to the Democratic Party’s wishes.
She also rejected media criticism about the Democratic Party’s failure to deliver stimulus packages promptly.
“Do not characterize what we did before as a mistake, as a preface to your question if you want an answer,” she said on the Facebook video. “That was not a mistake. It was a decision, and it has taken us to a place where we can do the right thing without other, shall we say, considerations in the legislation that we do not want. Now that is it.”
President Trump is very disappointed with the lackluster stimulus package Pelosi, and other Democrats took six months to agree on.
“A few months ago, Congress started negotiations on a new package to get urgently needed help to the American people. It has taken forever,” he said, according to Fox News. “However, the bill they are now planning to send back to my desk is much different than anticipated. It really is a disgrace.”
