The focus of this entire country right now is the long-awaited stimulus legislation that many Americans and American business owners need to keep their heads above water.
After House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) derailed a bill the Senate thought it had ready to go to a vote, Senator Cruz (R-TX) slammed Pelosi for her “Christmas list” of demands for the stimulus legislation.
Never Let a Crisis Go to Waste
One of the more despicable realities of our political system is that given an opportunity, our elected representatives will look to exploit a partisan agenda.
In this case, with Democrats having the House, they are derailing the stimulus package for Americans and business owners to ram through very specific Democrat talking points.
Some of the items included in the Phase 3 package are emissions for airlines, student loan forgiveness, and money for the arts.
Exactly what does this have to do with relief for Americans that are worried about putting food on their table?
When Senator Cruz finally got the floor, he did not hold back at all in attacking Pelosi for using this crisis as a way to push partisan legislation.
He stated, “A famed quote from Rahm Emanuel, he was President Obama’s chief of staff, ‘Never let a good crisis go to waste.’
“Sadly, we’re seeing the embodiment of that cynical approach right now because, of all the people out of jobs, the Democrats are using — what are they pushing for?
“Changing the emission standards on airplanes.
“Mr. President, what the hell do the emissions standards on airplanes have to do with thousands of people dying and millions of people out of work in the coronavirus epidemic?
“Don’t treat this bill like a partisan Christmas list!”
Just today, while Democrats obstructed efforts to deliver more relief to the American people,
There were at least 6,484 new cases in the US.
There were at least 102 deaths in the US.
There was another death in TX.

This nonsense in D.C. has to be stopped and if there was ever proof of just how faulty and broken our political system is, we are seeing it now.
I have regularly said the last thing on the Democrat list is real Americans and legal citizens.
When you see what Pelosi is pushing over getting a dry bill through Congress to help those that are days away from losing our business, that point should be crystal clear to every American.
