House Majority Speaker Nancy Pelosi is enjoying her 80th birthday, especially because the history books will show how hard she fought to make sure the Coronavirus relief bill takes cares of American workers instead of corporations. She probably guaranteed whoever becomes the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee victory in November as well.
Speaker Pelosi just declared victory today for Democrats for the $2 trillion coronavirus bill at her weekly press conference at the U.S. Capitol. She said Democrats “won the day” with the relief bill and did “Jiu Jitsu” by fighting to make sure the bill focused on individuals and workers rather than big corporations.
Pond scum politician Mitch McConnell led his party’s attempt to stuff the bill with more benefits for corporations than American workers, but Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats succeeded in making sure this bill mostly helps the people. They did a great job by extending limits on unemployment by $600 a week, which gets the money to the workers, who are having a tougher time surviving than some billion dollar corporation.
Fortunately Speaker Pelosi knows the GOP is just a bunch of scammers, “What we did last night and what we will tomorrow, $2 trillion, is about the cost of the tax scam that the Republicans foisted on the nation to give 83% of the benefits to the top 1 percent.” BRAVO!
PELOSI on coronavirus bill: "What we did last night and what we will tomorrow — $2 trillion — is about the cost of the tax scam that the Republicans foisted on the nation to give 83% of the benefits to the top 1 percent … they said it was gonna pay for itself. It never does." pic.twitter.com/AFsqCzQs92

It’s about damn time the American worker gets a bailout, instead of Wall Street. Speaker Pelosi said she is disappointed the GOP didn’t agree to increasing food stamp benefits and making all treatments for coronavirus free instead of just having coronavirus testing be free. This is why it is imperative that we take back not just the White House this year, but also the Senate, so we don’t have to negotiate with the GOP/Wall St.
Speaker Pelosi took some time to go after false information being spread by Donald Trump, as he keeps going around and saying there is “light at the end of the tunnel” and that he wants to ease the social distancing guidelines on coronavirus. Speaker Pelosi said, “The light at the end of the tunnel may be a train coming at us.” You can see her opening remarks in the footage below.
.@SpeakerPelosi: "Last night, as you know, the Senate passed important legislation. We're very proud of the product…We did jiu jitsu on it."
