House majority speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) just got bad news from the Senate. In the future, there will be no more partisan politics in addressing the coronavirus.
Pelosi may very well have permanently stained her image when she delayed aid to Americans affected by coronavirus to play politics.
Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) responded to Pelosi’s declaration that she would pursue pension legislation in future coronavirus bills by saying, “Well, we have a pension problem. But it’s not related to the coronavirus. That’s why it’s not in the bill. The emergency bills that we may have to pass in the future need to be related to the subject. And that was a problem here. … So, we’re not going to use these virus relief bills as a way to pass Democratic policy proposals. That’s not what this emergency’s about.”
Democrats have sunk so low that they are exploiting a crisis to pass their legislative agendas. Democrats are setting new standards for blatant omnibus legislation.
Democrats need to remember there is an election coming up in November and voters will not appreciate being held hostage.
It is good to see Republicans are committed to standing strong and being direct about addressing the crisis.
