Top House Dem doubles down on politically exploiting COVID-19 to radically 'restructure government'
NEW ... HOUSE DEM LEADERSHIP just wrapped a conference call. PELOSI discussed what she talked about on TV this am: that she wants to do a CARES Act part 2 — another bill like the last, instead of infrastructure. No timeline for this at the moment. (From me and @heatherscope )
Pelosi indicates that the fourth recovery bill could be similar to the $2.2T stimulus that just became law - and the House Dem priorities (infrastructure, broadband, etc. may wait til later.) “I think the bill could be very much like the bill we just passed,” she said on CNBC.
Want to fix this crisis: --Practice social distancing --Wash your hands --Wear a mask --Donate money, time and effort every day to electing @JoeBiden and Dem Senate and House candidates so we can have a functioning, humane government again
House Dem infrastructure priorities in a phase 4 bill: - $10B for community health centers - $40B for clean water upgrades - expanded broadband access - "bold new funding for addressing the most impactful" infrastructure projects (roads/bridges) - $$ for rail and public transit
The House Democrats were unable to get even a single vote from the Republicans on their Impeachment Hoax. The Republicans have never been so united! The Dem’s case is so bad that they don’t even want to go to trial!
With just 9 legislative days left this year, I have a few questions for Speaker Pelosi: • Where is #USMCA ? • Where is the troops funding bill? • How have you helped make our country stronger since taking over the gavel? This Dem-led House has been a national embarrassment.
If Barr & Rosenstein redact Mueller’s report for Congress, it will be by choice, not legal compulsion. Rosenstein chose to give a GOP House nearly 1 million pages of discovery in Clinton & Russia probe. But they choose not to give 400 pages of Trump-related info to a Dem House.
