Nancy Pelosi should be ashamed to call herself an American after the awful move she tried to pull.
She’s putting American lives in danger by holding critical aid hostage.
Nancy Pelosi sneaked something into coronavirus funding that will make your blood boil.
There is a time and a place for political battles but this is not the time or the place.
It would be ideal if America didn’t see the rapid rise of coronavirus cases that are threating to break Italy’s medical system.
While Democrats may complain that America doesn’t have enough hospital beds or isn’t as prepared as other countries, they are straight up lying.
America doesn’t have as many hospital beds in the system because the American medical establishment generally holds the ideal that patients who can be at home are better off at home, where it is easier to rest and there’s less risk of infection.
But when it comes to important ICU beds that Italy is running out of, America has almost three times as many and is number one in the world.
American capitalism has prepared America better than anyone in the world.
Yet Nancy Pelosi believes that it’s completely reasonable to make coronavirus aid conditional on passing the Democrats’ wish list.
She is trying to push things in that have absolutely nothing to do with the current health crisis.
Nancy Pelosi is trying to make coronavirus aid conditional on the federal government funding abortions.
According to The Daily Caller:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sought to include a potential way to guarantee federal funding for abortion into the coronavirus economic stimulus plan, according to multiple senior White House officials.
Speaking to the Daily Caller, those officials alleged that while negotiating the stimulus with U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Pelosi tried to lobby for “several” provisions that stalled bipartisan commitment to the effort. One was a mandate for up to $1 billion to reimburse laboratory claims, which White House officials say would set a precedent of health spending without protections outlined in the Hyde Amendment.
The Hyde Amendment blocks clinics that perform abortions from receiving federal funding, and Democrats have pushed the Trump administration to end it since he was elected in 2016.
There’s no connection between abortion and the coronavirus.
“A new mandatory funding stream that does not have Hyde protections would be unprecedented,” a White House official said. “Under the guise of protecting people, Speaker Pelosi is working to make sure taxpayer dollars are spent covering abortion — which is not only backwards, but goes against historical norms.”
The Speaker of the House should make it her first duty to protect the American people.
But so far from protecting American lives, she wants to make saving American lives conditional on killing the unborn.
She is supposed to serve the American people but even in the middle of a crisis she can’t look beyond trying to attack Trump.
The crisis should bring America together, not tear it apart; everyone can agree that the coronavirus is a problem and should take the emergency steps to fix the situation.
Nancy Pelosi needs to get her priorities straight.
