She wasn’t expecting this.
According to Breitbart News, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy warned Americans that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was looking for a fourth coronavirus relief package from Congress to accomplish liberal priorities.
Fox News host Bartiromo asked, “You said the next two months. And Secretary Mnuchin said the same thing, 10 to 12 weeks, to address the dislocation, just in the next 10 to 12 weeks. So, does that mean we’re getting another stimulus, a fourth package after the next 10 to 12 weeks?”
McCarthy responded saying, “I’m not sure we need a fourth package. And before we go to start drafting a forth package, I’d like these three packages we just put out — remember, it’s more than $2 trillion, the largest we have ever seen — to take care and get this economy moving. Remember, for unemployment insurance, we’re adding another $600 above what your state pays.”
He added, “We start paying in the first week, and we give you additional 13 weeks. What concerns me is, when I listen to Nancy Pelosi talk about a fourth package now, it’s because she didn’t get in the things that she really wanted to change the election law, a Green New Deal, expand — make us pay for Planned Parenthood, and expand what you’re seeing for sanctuary cities. Those are the things why this bill was held up for a week, but those are the things that we stopped.
Bartiromo said, “That is so outrageous that you were actually being asked to consider funding Planned Parenthood, at a time that we are in this crisis situation, where you’re trying to come up with a relief package. I just want to share with you what Nancy Pelosi said this morning, though, Congressman because she is just saying this right now: ‘President Trump denial at the beginning of this was deadly,’ and that, right now, ‘As he fiddles’ — her words — ‘as he fiddles, people are dying.’ This is what Nancy Pelosi said this morning. Your reaction?”
McCarthy said, “Well, what I see is that Nancy is trying to cover herself and the Democratic Party, because the amount of damage that they had just done in the last week, requesting about changing election law, that her number three in her own party said they wanted to restructure government, take the opportunity of a crisis.” You can read the full article here.
