(RightWing.org) – The Trump administration was able to bring Republicans and Democrats together five times to pass nonpartisan relief measures last year. With a Joe Biden in the White House this year, Democrats seem content to watch Republicans from their rearview mirror as they work to pass the latest COVID-19 package.
Making matters worse, leading Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) managed to insert provisions into the bill to the advantage of their failed districts.

As the San Francisco Chronicle reported on March 8, the latest COVID-19 relief bill “will erase the majority of San Francisco’s… $650 million budget deficit.” But here’s the kicker, according to the Chronicle, that budget windfall won’t solve the city’s financial woes. As it turns out, it’s just a drop in the bucket for San Francisco’s failing economy.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) spoke out against Pelosi’s “payoff” in a recent Fox News op-ed. As he explained, Americans need relief efforts aimed at returning the country to normal. That includes ending “non-science-based” lockdowns, reopening schools, and ending the COVID-19 pandemic. Too bad Pelosi is too busy helping herself to be listening.
