‘People vs Pelosi’ Trends When Even The Left Has Had Enough

Excerpt:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has sparked a heated backlash as she appeared to be against considering cash payments for Americans in the midst of the coronavirus crisis.

The California Democrat even has members of her own party criticizing her lack of support for measures that would get cash into the hands of Americans as the economy falters under the global pandemic. The fact that President Donald Trump and his fellow Republicans have floated the idea as a possibility has only angered the left even more.

"We are the wealthiest nation in human history, and have the lowest borrowing costs of any major government on the planet, and thus, can easily afford to contain the pandemic and keep our people well provisioned simultaneously,” Eric Levitz wrote in a New York Magazine article on Tuesday.

“All we need is for Congress to overcome its superstitions about deficits, and supply the economy with the many trillions of dollars in stimulus that even many center-right economists say we need,” he added.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vowed that senators “will not leave” Washington until they successfully come up with a new stimulus package in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin reportedly presented the idea of sending $1,000 checks, on a means-tested basis, directly to individual Americans when he met with Senate Republicans on Tuesday.

“On Tuesday, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin told congressional Republicans that the White House was putting together a package that would send out $250 billion in checks by the end of April, though they would be means-tested to some degree, meaning wealthier families wouldn’t get them,” the Washington Post reported,

But Pelosi’s Deputy Chief of Staff, Drew Hammill, indicated that she was not completely on board after Politico reported that a former economic adviser to President Barack Obama had floated the idea to Democrats last week but Pelosi “shot down the suggestion saying she didn’t want to write checks to millionaires.”

She can't help it, if Trump is onboard with it she knee jerks the other way. Pathetic, but that's the "leadership" of the Democrats.

One of the things, though, you have to watch out for with means testing is many small businesses book as personal income what is the business income if they aren't incorporated and keep separate books. Which means some people who seem above the means test limit are small business owners who are getting screwed, blued, and tattooed by this and need the money.

He beat her to the punch, she couldn't demand it therefore she has to be against it. When people start getting this money, they will know it came from Trump. Instead of a free Obama-phone, it will be Trump bucks! This will be one very very ugly election for the Democrats if this is wrapped up by the summer and the economy bounces back. Thus they need us desperate and afraid, then Biden becomes a real option to idiots because he will be "different" from Trump. But Trump beat them to the punch in every move so far. So they are losing face.
