Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) just received some terrible news. Her sick plan was just completely exposed and there’s nothing she can do about it. The truth has come out.
“She wants to do another blanket stimulus bill. l and give money to everyone and forgive student loan debt and just a liberal Christmas wishlist that’s just not going to happen because we just can’t afford it,” said Rep. James Comer (R-KY).
Speaking to Fox News, Comer was referring to Pelosi’s desire for another stimulus — which nearly every member of Congress thinks is necessary — but the chance of one happening in the ‘lame duck’ session isn’t likely.
Why? Well, as Comer pointed out, Pelosi wants “a liberal Christmas wishlist” instead of targeted stimulus. This has been her position for months and a non-starter; she hasn’t been negotiating in good faith from the beginning.
Even after losing several House seats in the election, giving her a razor-thin majority going into the new session in January, Pelosi has refused to change course and come to the table for a compromise.
Pelosi’s antics have been so frustrating, in fact, that even several months of her own party — Democrats from swing districts — have called for her to compromise for the good of the country. But it doesn’t sound like this is going to happen, not before January.
