Americans are suffering while Nancy Pelosi is playing politics with their livelihoods.
They’ve reached their limit on her partisan games.
Nancy Pelosi’s own party is deserting her as this massive failure brings her down.
More than 110,000 restaurants in America are expected to close because of the shutdown caused by the Chinese coronavirus.
That’s almost a sixth of restaurants in the nation.
The economic devastation from the coronavirus is going to be extreme and America needs to start concentrating on opening the economy in a safe and careful way.
Congress should be focusing on getting money to small businesses in need to help them keep going.
But Nancy Pelosi is blocking more money being given to the small business relief fund.
Nancy Pelosi is playing the same games she was playing before with coronavirus relief and wants to add funding for issues like unions and abortions that have nothing to do with coronavirus.
She’s prioritizing the Democrats’ agenda over the American people and even the Democrats have gotten fed up with her games.
15 Democrats have broken ranks with Pelosi and publicly support a simple refunding of the small business relief fund.
Rep. Jason Crow (D-CO) said:
The @SBAgov ’s Paycheck Protection Program has just run out of money, leaving business owners who are trying to pay their employees stranded. We need to fund the PPP and other SBA programs — there are small businesses counting on our support.
Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO) said:
“Congress must immediately replenish funds for the Paycheck Protection Program. Millions of small businesses are counting on this program to cover expenses and pay their workers. We have to get this right.”
Rep. Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR) said:
“Congress must act quickly to replenish SBA funds for small business relief. I’m hearing despair from businesses of all sizes, and many mom and pop shops are on the verge of shutting down.”
Rep. Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA) said:
I’ve spoken w/ small business owners in our community – they need access to capital immediately. That’s why I’ve mounted an effort to urge Leadership on both sides of the aisle to put politics aside and get relief in the hands of those who represent the backbone of our economy.
Rep. Kendra Horn (D-OK) said:
“We cannot treat relief for small businesses like a political football. I’m calling on both parties to come together to fund PPP. We must strengthen access for our smallest businesses, but that shouldn’t stop us from taking action. PPP needs funding now.”
Republicans are ready and willing to get small businesses the relief they need.
It’s Nancy Pelosi who’s holding it up.
She’s hoping she can use the small business relief as hostage to get her priorities through.
It hasn’t worked so far, she can’t even get all Democrats on board with her plan.
The smarter ones can see that she’s just making her whole Party look bad and they want to avoid the disaster that Pelosi could cause them.
Pelosi needs to realize that the best thing she can do for Democrats is to stop focusing on their agenda and help save the American businesses that are counting on her.
