House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy ripped into Nancy Pelosi and accused her of lying on national television.
He went after her for some comments she made about the changes to the Coronavirus stimulus package.
Look, we all know what happened and it was disgraceful – the swamp saw a once in a lifetime opportunity and put the squeeze on the politicians.
Hopefully, we got a good deal and only time will tell but one thing we do know – moderate Dems were not happy with Pelosi’s stunt to try to sneak her pet projects in and that is not good news for Pelosi.
From The Gateway Pundit:
For days now the two chambers of Congress have been fighting over a mammoth Coronavirus stimulus bill because the Democrats were trying to fund their liberal pet projects.
Wicked Pelosi has been trying to sneak in a wish list of Socialist goodies that have absolutely nothing to do with the Coronavirus.
McCarthy said during his presser that Pelosi is flat out lying about the changes to the bill.
“A few minutes ago the Speaker stood at this podium and claimed that House Democrats did what she called a jujitsu to change the bill — that is an outright lie,” McCarthy said. “The fundamental portions of this bill has not changed since Sunday.”
McCarthy continued, “Four months for unemployment was already decided on Sunday. The grant to keep employees hired in small business was already decided on Sunday.”
“The only few additions were funding of things that had nothing to do with the Coronavirus,” he added.
.@GOPLeader McCarthy: “The only few additions were funding of things that had nothing to do with the Coronavirus. Was that worth holding it up?”
