Lots of folks on the Right are weighing in on the House Speaker’s Christmas Tree for the Left rewrite of the Senate’s bipartisan coronavirus relief package. Monica Showalter at American Thinker captures it perfectly and in great detail. Here’s a sample:
“Moscow Mitch’s slush fund? There’s no slush fund; everything here is pinned to specific items, such as checks for workers, and masks and gowns for hospitals. Slush funds were what were used to reward Democrat groups such as ACORN during the 2009 stimulus package. We have quite a bit of projecting going on here, for starters.
“More important, take a look at that Moscow Mitch designator — something McConnell reportedly does not like, so she uses it. There’s no bipartisan spirit there to start, not even any hope of it with this kind of talk, just a desire for political slug-festing.
“More important, the Moscow Mitch thing is a reference to the Democrats’ continuous hobbyhorse: finding some way to overturn the results of the 2016 election. This is pure partisanship at its most disgusting, business as usual for the rabid and embittered Democrats.”
GALLUP SAYS 60 PERCENT APPROVE OF TRUMP CORONAVIRUS ACTIONS: Surely, there is no connection between that and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s waving the white flag on her alternative coronavirus relief package.

As the piece Charles linked to in the last hour notes, “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday that she will attempt to pass the Senate’s coronavirus economic stimulus package – putting aside the alternative, projected $2.5 trillion measure that she proposed.” But her earlier efforts will be the stuff of many a GOP campaign ad this fall.
NO PORK FOR NANCY! House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Panderville) just announced she has dropped procedural blockage and will allow a vote on the Senate’s version of the COVID bill instead of holding the nation hostage by demanding what some commentators called “racial and gender pay equity provisions, diversity on corporate boards, increased use of minority-owned banks by federal offices, and a grab-bag of other diversity-themed requirements.”
JustTheNews appears to be the first with this development:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday that she will attempt to pass the Senate’s coronavirus economic stimulus package – putting aside the alternative, projected $2.5 trillion measure that she proposed. The California Democrat said she’ll try to pass the Senate’s projected $1.8 trillion measure by unanimous consent, meaning House members can say yes without having to come to Capitol Hill to vote.
More to come, for sure.
