Yesterday, after President Trump vetoed the Covid Relief Bill and delivered a presidential speech criticizing that the bill was too small to provide relief to the American people, Congressman Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has been frantically anti-Trump, immediately held a “Selective Hearing”. Democrats including Pelosi, U.S. Rep. Alexander Ocasio-Cortez, and Senator Bernie Sanders quickly captured President Trump’s proposal to increase the per capita relief of $600 per month to 2000 dollars, expressed full support and urged the president to adopt greater stimulus measures.
Pelosi urged McCarthy on Wednesday to allow Republicans and Democrats in the House of Representatives to “unanimously” approve the $2,000 relief package in a vote on Thursday morning.
McCarthy hit back at Pelosi in a letter Wednesday night, saying that the Republican Party will work on its own stimulus plan, but will not agree to the plan Pelosi requested.
As President Trump said: “It’s called the Covid relief bill but it has almost nothing to do with Covid,”
The bill includes “$85.5 million for assistance to Cambodia, $134 million to Burma,” and millions more to other countries, as well as domestic allocations that he described as “wasteful and unnecessary items.”
Pelosi and the Democrats don’t care about raising the per capita relief to $2,000 per month. After all, this is spent on American taxpayers’ money, and one of the Democratic Party’s propositions is to have big government and high welfare. What they really care about is the “unnecessary waste” in the Covid relief bill. Because behind every appropriation involves the sharing of the spoils by interest groups.
President Trump wants to cut unnecessary expenses and spend money on American taxpayers, while Pelosi only seized on President Trump’s proposal to increase the per capita relief to $2,000, retreat and force President Trump to pass Covid relief bill.
“They’ve conveniently ignored @realDonaldTrump’s call to reexamine tax dollars wasted overseas while so many Americans are struggling at home,” McCarthy wrote in a Twitter message. “Republicans will act to put America first.”
The minority leader wrote that Republicans should follow Trump’s lead and “reexamine how our tax dollars are spent overseas” amid a pandemic that has wreaked havoc on the U.S. for nearly a year.
“Our government’s top priority must be our families, communities, and small businesses as we get through this pandemic and restore our country,” McCarthy wrote.
