On Tuesday, more than 100 Democrats in the House of Representatives issued a letter urging Pelosi to allow a vote on a bill to reinstate the lapsed $600 a week unemployment benefits until the coronavirus pandemic ends.

Asked about the letter, Pelosi said: “I don’t think the timing is for us to do it right now.”


This lady obviously doesn't care about the little people who are depending on this help after the pandemic laid them off. What the hell does she really care? She has her $25,000 refrigerators. She won't even bring it up for a vote when her own party asks her to. Politics is more important to her. Beating Trump is more important than the people who really need this money. How low can she sink?

The House already passed a relief bill. The Senate needs to come back from vacation and get it to Trump's desk.

Didn't the House already pass a bill that offered more relief than the GOP and Trump wanted?

Y'all just trying to spin **** now cause you wanted 400 or less a week more in unemployment? You're **** is naked, we all see it. Stop lying because in 2020, all this can be easily uploaded to the internet. Your same ol' same ol' sham of lies and dishonesty ain't gonna quite cut it.

Well even look at the link.

Pelosi opposes SMALLER coronavirus bill. Don't let the lies of these dishonest Cultists fool anyone. Pelosi wasn't vetoing some relief bill, just restrictions to the relief bill she passed already.

Remember, Deflection, Deception, Denial; the 3-D's of the Trumpeteer.

I can agree with the OP that Pelosi really doesn't care about the working middle class.

If the OP is suggesting the $600/m should be reinstated, maybe someone can explain how the National debt will ever be reduced if the federal Govt. keeps spending money they don't have.

I realize people need help from loss of jobs from the virus. But somehow we need to do more than throw money at it.

Clearly she wants to use suffering as a bargaining chip. Democrats never let a good crisis go to waste. In the meantime, there's the executive order that extends supplemental benefits using disaster relief funds to states that want it. California is one of the states that does.

It sounds like roughly half of the dems in the house want to pass a clean bill to extend supplemental unemployment. Pelosi has no interest in that. The whole purpose of her bloated bill is to stall.

Yes, it is a huge amount of money. The vast majority of those who were receiving unemployment with the $600 supplemental were making more money staying home than when they were working. There need to be incentives to return to work.

That sounds like the same answer given to quite a few democrats when they insisted on impeaching Trump immediately after becoming House majority in 2018.

But the wicked witch of San Francisco changed her mind when she heard about a few innocent sentences in a stupid phone call involving Trump and the President of Ukraine.

Pelosi knew it would be a losing proposition; that Trump would never be convicted in a Republican majority Senate and all she did was to hold the documents going to the Senate for 4-6 weeks until COVID-19 was in full swing during the impeachment.

Pelosi has a lot of blood on her hands.

So do jackasses Schiff and that nasty little fat man Nadler.

She's just in it for the power. She doesn't care about helping poor people, or anyone outside her club.

Exactly, we need to get rid of these ultra partisans from both parties. Those who hold more loyalty to their party than the country as a whole. Those who put the good of their party over the good for the nation.

Perhaps some fresh faces could accomplish what these old retards can't. But if not, it's time to put both major parties on the trash heap of history and start anew.

Pelosi has to get more money for her favorite - the Kennedy Center and much other pork.

Give Trump the line item veto.

I guess the $25 million a few months ago that Pelosi insisted be included in the stimulus bill must have gone fast.

Can anyone remind me why the US Government/taxpayers is supporting the Kennedy center at all?

Like other businesses, if they cannot make it on their own, file for bankruptcy and padlock the doors.

Case closed.

You do mean the four hundred paid by the fed and two hundred by the state as per the republicans bill. Mitch already has a bill waiting from the house, sign it.

Didn't your lord and savior just sign a bunch of E.O.'s promising people help? When do you think the help will arrive?

Fake News, the Repubs don't want to extend the $600 a week UE benefit. The OP is a LIE.

Absolutely right. There will NOT be a COVID relief-3 even under a new administration I doubt there will be and there will certainly not be as the Senate is currently configured and with Bozo the President. Everybody knows COVID Relief-2 is all we will get. So we must get all we can in COVID Relief-2.

Whether we do or not has nothing to do with the fact that Pelosi is right on this issue.

Pelosi will either get exactly what she wants or she will stand in the way of relief help for the country. She doesn't care if she harms the country and the people as long as she gets more power.

100 Democrats asked her to pass a separate bill just on unemployment. She refused. She would rather see people suffer so they will blame Trump. They are pawns in her chess game so she's fine with them suffering.

That bill is stuck in the twilight zone because it contains numerous other things. 100 Democrats asked her to have a vote on unemployment only and she refused. She would rather see them suffer.
