Even Some House Ds Know Pelosi’s Bill Is A Partisan Fairytale

Today, the House is set to vote on Speaker Pelosi’s $3 trillion coronavirus “relief” bill that stands no chance of ever becoming law. Their 1,800-page bill is a partisan wish list and an attempt by Democrats to use COVID-19 as an opportunity to enact their agenda. It is full of provisions that have nothing to do with responding to the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • Anti-work provisions that hurt the economy
  • Get out of jail free cards for prisoners
  • Incentives for illegal immigration
  • Wasteful spending
  • Wholesale election law changes

Speaker Pelosi’s bill is so far out of touch that even some members of her caucus have admitted that this is not the time for a partisan messaging bill:

Rep. Joe Cunningham (D-SC): “A Partisan Wish List”

Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA): “Has No Chance Of Becoming Law”

Rep. Kendra Horn (D-OK): “A Disservice To The American People”

Bottom Line: Speaker Pelosi and her top brass drafted this legislation behind closed doors without input from House Republicans or a majority of their caucus. House Democrats are wasting time chasing their fantasies rather than using their time in Washington to iron out a bipartisan agreement that could actually help the American people.

Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats are putting their political priorities before the country’s best interest.
