Young Turks reporter, Ana Kasparian. “feels that Pelosi would do whatever is necessary to hurt President Trump despite what is best for the American people and that is why the bill was delayed, as a more robust package could have been passed prior to the election.” Fox News reported
“Pelosi made a purely political calculation prior to the election and that calculation was to turn down a more robust relief package that was being proposed by the White House because she knew that there was a possibility that it would help Donald Trump’s chances of getting reelected,” Kasparian said.
“That’s what it was really about at the end of the day, and that’s the reason why she decided to reject that package and then immediately sign on to this slim package, this skinny package that doesn’t give Americans the relief that they absolutely need,” Kasparian continued.
“I understand the risk in doing, what I think would have been the right thing, in signing onto the original relief package, but when you consider the devastation that Americans are facing right now, you understand the weight of the issue.”
Uygur added his comments to the election disputes.
“You might want to open your mouth and talk about how they’re trying to steal the election,” Uygur said on “The Young Turks Live,” directing his comments to Biden.
“They are on the opposite side of you. They’re right now trying to end democracy because they’re un-American. They’d rather have power than have a democracy. You might want to make that point, so that people understand what is happening,” Uygur said.
Pelosi Says the $600 Stimulus Check is ‘Significant,’
The Daily Wire reported that “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) came under fire Monday for describing a $600 stimulus check as “significant” after she demonized bonuses, often times larger than $600, that many Americans received from the Trump tax cuts in 2018 as “crumbs,” “pathetic,” and “insignificant.”
During a floor speech on Monday, Pelosi called the coronavirus stimulus bill a “good bipartisan bill” and said that the $600 checks that Americans will receive were “significant.”
Pelosi said in part:
We can accept the short-term because we’ll have a new president during the length of that moratorium to extend it further, if necessary. We also have in the legislation direct payments, which were not in the Republican bill – to America’s working families. I would like them to have been bigger, but they are significant and they will be going out soon.
The president may insist on having his name on the check, but make no mistake, those checks are from the American people. The American peoples’ name should be on that check, no individual, because that is the source of the resources for those checks: tax-paying Americans.
