Mitch McConnell’s Senate passed by voice vote the PPP bill to refill the PPP refill account. After weeks of stalling, Pelosi’s House will likely pass the bill Wednesday. It didn’t come without plenty of grumbling from Democrats. Rep. Pramila Jayapal, virtually one of the members of the Democrats’ Squad, didn’t hesitate in talking about why the PPP refill bill was delayed:


According to Tyler O’Neil’s article, Rep. Jayapal said “I think what you’re hearing from all of us on the call is that we have real concerns about giving away leverage now without getting some of the priorities that we need.” This isn’t surprising. Pelosi used this tactic to hold Blue Collar America hostage when the PPP was created. Pelosi also tried this technique to negotiate the trial rules for the Democrats’ faux impeachment trial.

In that instance, Pelosi ran into a brick wall named McConnell. Predictably, that negotiation went nowhere fast. I wrote about that negotiation here:

The Constitution gives the sole power of Impeachment to the House. If a House majority wants to impeach a president, the ball is in their court. But they have to do the work. They have to prove their case. Nothing in our history or our Constitution says a House majority can pass what amounts to a half-baked censure resolution and then insist that the Senate fill in the blanks. There is no constitutional exception for a House majority with a short attention span.

Look, I think everyone knows this process has not been some earnest fact-finding mission with House Democrats following each thread wherever it leads. The Speaker of the House did not reluctantly decide to impeach after poring over the secondhand impressions of civil servants. This was a predetermined political conclusion. Members of her conference had been publicly promising it for years.

Here’s the video of that famous speech:

But I digress. The point is that Democrats, whether it’s a matter of people losing their jobs or some other life-and-death situation, always seek a political advantage. Doing the right thing right off the bat is never part of the Democrats’ tactics.

Let’s not forget that the leader of the House Democrats shot off her mouth on this, too. She and Schumer both essentially told Blue Collar America to go to hell. This is the Schumer-Pelosi Shutdown. Check this out:

Literally millions of people have lost their jobs as a direct result of the Democrats’ stall tactics. Any family that lost their family business should directly hold the Democrats to blame. This shutdown of the program was entirely avoidable. Pelosi’s Democrats could’ve avoided the shutdown had they acted. Instead, these Democrats delayed helping Blue Collar America multiple weeks in search of a partisan advantage.

How disgusting is that?

  • Chad Q says:

    The PPP should be disbanded until actual thought can be put into who can apply for and get the money. Ruth’s Chris, Shake Shack, Harvard (with a $41 bil endowment), and others got money but other businesses who actually need the money can’t get it. Sure those companies are returning the money but only because they are being shammed into it. It’s just another way to payoff your supporters whether they’re on the right or left.
