Nancy Pelosi is concentrating totally on the insane agenda she’s trying to pass.
But there’s something far more important she’s refusing to deal with.
And Nancy Pelosi got hit with one deadline that could end her reign as Speaker.
Nancy Pelosi may have been checkmated by Mitch McConnell in round one of the stimulus but she’s not giving up yet.
She’s still trying to use the coronavirus as an excuse to pass major spending that isn’t connected to the current crisis.
Nancy Pelosi doesn’t seem to understand that she’s Speaker of the House, not a lobbyist for the unions or Planned Parenthood.
Her goal should be to promote the good of America, not the Democrats’ pet projects.
American taxpayers shouldn’t have to pay for her insanity.
She needs to focus her attention because there’s only a limited amount of time to act.
The economy can’t stay shut down forever.
The current shutdown is buying America time to find solutions and push the outbreak into the summer months when the virus will spread slowly, but the current economic shutdown is unsustainable.
Steve Scalise warned that if the economy isn’t up and running in the next two months, it might be too late.
According to Breitbart News:
On Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News Radio’s “Brian Kilmeade Show,” House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) stated that we can’t keep the economy closed “for another two months,” and if we did, “there would be nothing to come back to.”
Scalise said that he supports President Trump “putting a team together to start looking at what is that point where we hit the peak and we can start coming back down and getting our economy back open again. You can’t do this open-ended. You can’t go on, even for another two months, there would be nothing to come back to.”
Most Americans, especially those in low wage jobs, can’t afford to stay home indefinitely.
As Rush Limbaugh put it, “Democrats are gonna pitch this as lives versus money, and they’re gonna do their best to make sure this economy stays shut down because that’s the fastest way they think to beating Trump,” he continued, “When in fact it’s lives versus lives. It’s not lives versus money. Money is not an enemy of lives. Money is not an enemy of life. But to the modern-day Democrat Party and media acolytes, it is.”
Right now, there’s a real balancing act between making sure that the medical system doesn’t get overwhelmed and making sure the economy doesn’t get destroyed.
Andrew Cuomo said that the entire shutdown would be worth it if it saved even one life — people risk their lives in cars to get to work every day.
Certain amounts of risk are acceptable in order to keep society running.
This isn’t to say that everything should be opened right this moment and we should all have a big group hug.
Rather the conversation needs to start on how America gets most people back to work in the safest possible way.
