Last week House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made it perfectly clear at a weekly press conference that she was absolutely willing to hold America hostage if she doesn’t get her way with the new bill that was being proposed to help the country deal with the coronavirus outbreak.
Pelosi and the House Democrats worked on putting together a bill to provide financial support to deal with the coronavirus as well as to provide support for those who are going to be severely impacted by the virus.
During the press conference, Pelosi got so mad she actually ended up hitting the podium where she was standing and told the reporters that she is not willing to negotiate with Republicans on this bill and basically told them that it's all or nothing. It's here way or the highway and she doesn't care if American's suffer for it in the meantime.
This was literally her attitude regarding the bill.
As it stands, Congress could do nothing else in the meantime until they worked together to get a bill passed through both the House of Representatives and the Senate, as well as getting is signed by President Trump.
After initially delaying the vote she now says she will not work with Republicans.
“We don’t need 48 hours, we need to just make a decision to help families right now… I’m not sticking around because they don’t want to agree to language,” Pelosi said.
Q: Would House Dems stay if compromise isn't reached on the coronavirus response bill in the next 24-48 hours?@SpeakerPelosi: "We don't need 48 hours, we need to just make a decision to help families right now...

Keep in mind that this is the same nasty woman that delayed the bill just two weeks ago so that she and the DNC could run some ads against House Republicans. Maybe she's just mad that she can't go take herself a sweet little vacation right now. You would think that at a time like this she would be willing to work with Republicans.
Republican Rep. Steve Scalise explained what the Democrats are trying to do.
Notice the contrast:@realDonaldTrump → Working hard & taking smart, decisive action to protect Americans from Coronavirus & stabilize the economy.
Dems & The Media → Weaponizing the crisis to push their liberal agenda & vendetta against Trump.
Somehow not at all surprising. pic.twitter.com/vr9IPekE72

Pelosi wasted the whole week behind closed doors drafting a partisan bill full of liberal fantasies that have nothing to do w/ Coronavirus.
Republicans are ready to work w/ Dems on SERIOUS solutions.
Now is not the time for politics. Pelosi needs to stop the games & work w/ us.

Ultimately, the bill was finally passed on Saturday.
