McConnell Hammers Pelosi for Blocking Coronavirus Bill To Add Green New Deal Items

By Randy DeSoto

Published March 23, 2020 at 10:25am

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday of holding up the third phase of coronavirus relief legislation to add Green New Deal initiatives.

Included in House Democrats’ demands are new emission standards for the airlines and tax credits for solar panels, according to McConnell.

“Are you kidding me?” the Kentucky Republican said with anger in his voice. “This is the moment to debate new regulations that have nothing whatsoever to do with this crisis?

“That’s what they’re up to over there. The American people need to know it.”

McConnell continued, “Democrats won’t let us fund hospitals or save small businesses unless they get to dust off the Green New Deal.”

The majority leader said New York hospitals are overrun, yet Pelosi is willing to delay the legislation for pet projects.

“They are holding up legislation that will literally keep people on the payroll because Democrat special interest friends want to squeeze these employers while they’re vulnerable,” McConnell said.

The GOP leader noted that the markets were tanking Monday “because this body can’t get its act together,” but made clear Democrats are to blame.

“Eleventh-hour demands Democrats have decided are more important than Americans’ paychecks and the personal safety of doctors and nurses,” McConnell said.

He then quoted House Majority Whip James Clyburn of South Carolina, who said last week during a Democrat conference call, “This is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision,” a source on the call told The Hill.

McConnell further noted a Democrat lawmaker said on the Senate floor Sunday night, “I don’t know how many trillion-plus packages we’re going to have.”

“They ought to be embarrassed! … This is not a juicy political opportunity, this is a national emergency,” he said.

McConnell pointed out Republicans made major changes to meet Senate Democrats’ demands, but Pelosi’s return to Washington scuttled the deal.

“This is no time for this nonsense!” he said.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York responded to McConnell by saying Democrats are “trying to get things done” and make the legislation better rather than deliver partisan speeches.

He did not address McConnell’s assertion that Democrats were trying to add Green New Deal items to the legislation.

Where is justice

The Justice will come when Trump cancels the Federal Reserve and gives the people back control of the money. As long as the Federal Reserve is in business it will continue to plunder the people of their hard earned wealth.

Remember Trump is a shrewd businessman. He has been around the block a few times.

Ideally, if Trump can undo the dishonest thing that was done to us by Woodrow Wilson when the Federal Reserve Act was passed in the sneaky way it was, just before the Christmas holidays when many members of Congress and opponents of that Act had left town for the holidays. They still had the Quorum they needed to conduct business.

It may also put a target on his back. :-/

Do you recall when JFK was killed in Dallas?

There are some who think it was LBJ who was behind that.

He told his mistress on the eve of the killing, "After tomorrow I will not be disrespected again." :-O

After Jack Ruby killed Lee Harvey Oswald, a reporter asked him, "Jack, how could this happen?"

Ruby said, "Ask the guy that is in there now." Ruby also said, "If Adlai Stephenson were Vice President this never would have happened." ;)

Probably only another fifty or sixty years.

"DISRESPECTED"? Sounds like a further indication of LBJ's jewness - since we know he wasn't black.

"duh bitch dun dissaspected me"

Not likely. He is now 69 years of age. ;)
