Look What Democrats Just Did To The Coronavirus Package In The Senate

(Liberty Bell) – One of the things we hear constantly from the Democratic Party is how much they care about the “little guy,” the working man, the average Joe who has all the odds stacked against him as he’s oppressed by the big, bad rich folk. Yet, when it comes time for the rubber to meet the road, it turns out the only thing the Democrats care about is capitalizing on a crisis in order to get some of their agenda items pushed through the legislative branch.

The proof of this comes in the form of Democrats in the Senate voting to block the coronavirus package on Sunday which would’ve provided economic relief for businesses and Americans who are suffering due to quarantine and self-isolation measures taken to slow the spread of COVID-19.

These people are truly deplorable.

Here’s more on this from Breitbart:

The Senate GOP package failed, with 47 votes in favor and 47 against, which fell 13 votes short of what was necessary to advance the legislation.

An angry Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) slammed Democrats for voting against the bill and blamed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for nixing bipartisan negotiations over a coronavirus package.

“I want everybody to fully understand if we aren’t able to act tomorrow, it will be because of our colleagues on the other side continuing to dicker when the country expects us to come together and address the problem,” the Senate leader said on Sunday.

McConnell added that there was bipartisan consensus among “regular members of the Senate, not in the Leadership office, not in the speaker’s office for goodness sakes.”

McConnell continued on saying, “She’s the Speaker of the House, not the Speaker of the Senate. We were doing just fine unil that intervention.”

It’s going to be interesting to see what sort of spin Pelosi put on her intrusion into the Senate, which truly isn’t her place. She just sabotaged a relief effort that would’ve helped people, simply because she wasn’t given every piece of pork in the bill she wanted. It’s ridiculous.

She’s playing politics with people’s lives. Can you imagine the outrage had a Republican done something like this? Democratic leadership needs to hold her accountable for this intrusion. They won’t, of course, because Pelosi is Democratic leadership, but that’s beside the point.

In contrast, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) blamed Republicans for advancing legislation without an agreement.

Schumer said on the Senate floor:

The majority leader was well aware of how the vote would go before it happened but he chose to go forward with it anyway even though negotiations are continuing. So who’s playing games? But our caucus is united to deliver a bill that addresses this health and economic crisis quickly and we’re committed to working in a bipartisan way to get it done.

No, Sen. Schumer, you’re wrong. A true, genuine concern for the health and well-being of the American people would mean the Democratic Party wouldn’t be trying to push intrusive, big government ideas through into law during a time of national crisis. But that’s precisely what they are doing. Capitalizing on a pandemic in order to usurp more power and authority for themselves, while burdening folks who are already anxious and in need of relief.

Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) said in a statement on Sunday:

‪How pathetic. Tonight’s vote was not even on passing a bipartisan plan, it was merely to begin debating it. The American people are hurting, the clock is ticking, but Senate Democrats would rather cave to Speaker Pelosi’s eleventh-hour demands. My colleagues on the other side of the aisle should worry more about getting relief to their constituents and less about the House Speaker’s partisan wish list. This cannot go another day.

Cramer is right on the money. Right now, all that should matter is getting relief to those who need it. They need help now. Instead, Pelosi is essentially holding them all hostage in order to get certain things she wants to pass pushed through with this spending bill. It’s egregious.

  1. It’s a shame that they can’t just put a package together that doesn’t have all that pork! Now, when the country is in crisis, is not the time to attach all the things that wouldn’t get through on their own merit to this package. Money for arts and humanity, paying people more to not work than they actually get when they are working! Who will want to return to work when this is all over if they can collect more by not working! If it doesn’t have anything to do with Covid-19 relief and recovery, then it shouldn’t be in. I don’t know why we don’t give the President line item veto on these things so that he can veto all the extra money that will be spent on things that have nothing to due with the problem at hand, which should be cover-19 relief!

    • The real shame is that the MSM will NOT let the people know what the Democraps are doing to our Citizens. They just print/publish that the President and Republicans are holding up assistance coming to the people of our country. The President does have line item veto power BUT the Democraps and the MSM would raise holy hell if he used it against them. I think I remember one time our President use his line item veto power but that was decades ago.

  2. I don’t know if it is possible, but I believe that we the people could throw Pelosi, Schiff, Schumer, and Nadler out by emergency vote. Don’t forget AOC, Tlaib, Omar, and the other lady who is part of the squad! This whole crew is trying to overthrow our government and our President! They are working for the Deep State Swamp, who wants to take over America, and turn us into a globalist country! There must be someone in government , who is trustworthy (on the people’s side) that we could ask if we could do this.

  3. Obama got away with hundreds of executive orders. President Trump ought to do this Executive Order now, get the money to the people and get rid of all the hangers on that will destroy our nation.

  4. God don’t sleep God got a place for both of them if don’t repent and turn from their wicked ways it call the lake of fire where their will be waleing and gnashing of teeth

  5. The Democrats are the enemy of the USA!!! Remember Biden said China is our friend. Remember the millions him and Hunter made in Chinese investments!!! The Democrats are so evil. They are driven by greed for themselves!!!! Do you really think old demented Pelosi got to be worth 485 million by looking out for the interest of the American citizen, I think not!!!! All we can do is pray for our enemy that Jesus will speak to them and change their hard hearts.

    • Somebody please tell me how bailing out usps. And same day voter registration has anything to do with helping the people during this crises. I sure wish could get pelosi, adam schiff schumer , aoc and omar out of office and get on with people who care about what really matters

  6. Schumer = New York. Schiff= S. California. Pelosi = N. California. 3 areas hit hardest by Covid 19. All three falsely attacked Trump with lies resulting in Impeachment. God will not be mocked. Like Cyrus , Trump is chosen to lead.

  7. Get rid of the witch. Impeach her. I was a Democrat for many years, but switched to Republican because of her and what the Democratic Party has become – a do-nothing party.

    • Remember: VOTE BLUE NO MATTER WHO!!! Traitor Trump is already planning to risk American lives for money by loosening COVID-19 lockdown restrictions. Typical crooked republicunt, putting money ahead of human life. VOTE DEMOCRAT!!!

  8. The True Enemies of America have shown Their Hand, and now it’s Time We show Them the Door or The Grave, Their choice You either Work for the American People or You will be Buried by the American People!

    • Considering Traitor Trump is risking American lives for the sake of money by loosening Coronavirus lockdown restrictions, the enemy is clear, and he must be kicked out of office now by voting blue no matter who.

  9. The democraps are at it again, specifically “do it my way or else” Schumer and animated corpse Pelosi. They want the US to fund their pet projects in addition to the bill helping US citizens economically from the China virus. If they don’t get what they want, then it’s f*ck
    the US citizens. Come November vote hem OUT, that is if there still is a USA.

    • Bob you say Trump is putting Americans at harm for wanting to loosen restrictions that are in place when you (Democrats) called him racist when he started placing restrictions on travel in the first place .🤔

  10. On SSDi and I’m also a veteran but I only get 2650.00 dollars a month. I can’t use medicaid because I have a 2100.00 dollar spend down and I can’t use Medicare because I don’t have enough money to pay the 20 percent co pay. I was hoping I could the money to help pay the 20 percent co pay for Medicare.

    • I am in same boat as you. Had to use house money to buy food and essentials because people are buying everything they can get their hands on.I got family that rely on me to provide for them. I need that money.

    • You are lucky. My old man is a vet and only qualifies for $900 a month. Can’t get medical care thru the VA compliments of the 15% they garnish his wages to pay back. And we have 3 young kids.
      Amazing

  11. The Democrats learned the lessons of their Communist masters extremely well! Typical Marxist extortion tactics on display! America, you get what you pay, and PAY, AND PAY for! Take a nanosecond or two and let that sink in!

  12. Get an executive order from the President to get this bill to the people tell shumer and pelosi along with the other demonrats to go to hell where they belong and as a catholic pelosi know what that means Not that she is a good practicing one I would say she’s more in tune with Satan

  13. It’s time NOW!!!! ONE DAMNED BILL AT A TIME!!!!!!! No more of these riders that are taking this country down into an abyss from which there will be no return!!!!!!!!!!

  14. roach
    As agent history had shown many times there is ‘no herb grown, when consumed, that could fix stupidity’. Stupidity is fixed in the genes these people carry, no chance to improve. Need a proof?

    • And have Traitor Trump put Americans at risk for the sake of money with his loosening of Coronavirus lockdown restrictions? No flipping thanks. I’m voting blue no matter who, and anybody with a brain will do the same.

  15. The hatred for our great country shows through when Chuck and Nancy hold up the emergency funding. Two of the most infected states in the union are theirs but they don’t care who they kill. Any state is fine with them. Chuck and Nancy spit on the ground they walk on. They are a disgrace!!

  16. This is totally out of hand. Pelosi needs to be removed now. She lives behind a wall around her property I am told, so that clinches it, she does not care about the American people who are hurting very badly now. President Trump understands and is trying his best to get relief to these citizens. We need to call for this uncaring and selfish person to be removed and sent back to her home. At least she has one and some folks may lose theirs. Fair – nope don’t think so.

  17. The Democrats have gone nuts. They don’t care about America. Their whole agenda is to get President Trump out from the moment he was elected. They will lie, steal and cheat to try and get him out and not re-elected. Pelosi sucks, get her out!

  18. You can’t fix stupid and you can’t argue with it either. Damocraps are in it to steal everything they can for themselves and the people of this country be damned. Stick to the subject and stop putting riders in that have NOTHING to do with the Health and SAFETY of the American people. God Bless Texas, God Bless America and God Bless President and First Lady Trump. hooyah
