(TNS) Hero former Navy SEAL officer Dan Crenshaw blasted Democrats on Monday after the Garbage Party refused to even pass a procedural vote on a desperately needed coronavirus response bill that would, he says, keep America’s economy from tanking.
The real reason House Speaker Nancy Pelosi intervened in the eleventh hour to derail the Senate’s emergency bill, the Texas Republican suggested, was to push her own legislation that contains “a series of non-crisis-related Democratic wishlist items, included some Green New Deal policies and collective bargaining powers for unions,” the Daily Wire reported.

It’s a cheap political stunt he says won’t be soon forgotten.
“Democrats torpedoed a bipartisan emergency bill that: -Provides payroll & rent for small business -Credit to businesses across America to keep them afloat – Cash in American’s pockets – unemployment benefits,” the popular Texas Republican wrote in the first of a series of tweets starting Sunday. “They have no good reasons. Just partisanship. Call your reps NOW.”
“Do Dems want a recession? A depression? How can they justify this?” he asked in a follow-up post. “This bill is critical for the livelihood of millions. Our country will be devastated without immediate help. Dems can lie all they want about ‘helping workers’ but now they are destroying their lives.”
“I am not one to make hyperbolic statements,” Crenshaw continued. “But what Senate Democrats have done is truly awful. This bill was negotiated in good faith. Been monitoring its progress all week. It can save our economy. And they killed it. Out of spite and bitterness. Hold Dems accountable.”
“We will not forget this,” Crenshaw said in response to a tweet by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) blaming the decision to block the bill on its supposed inadequate “protections.”
“More businesses are closing tomorrow while you peddle this lie. You literally stopped a good bill because it *didn’t have enough red tape*. You hate American businesses so much that you would sacrifice our economy out of pure contempt,” Crenshaw truth-bombed.
He also retweeted a thread by journalist Rachel Bovard, who obtained an early copy of the 1,400-page Pelosi bill, that highlights some of the new Democratic bill’s provisions, including bailing out the post office, mandating “risk limiting audits” of elections, as well as same-day voter registration, and other non-crisis-related, long-time Democrat wishlist items.
Among them were more strict fuel emissions guidelines for airlines, wind and solar tax credits, and collective bargaining powers for unions — garbage from a Garbage Party and completely irresponsible.
“EVERYONE in America, Democrat and Republican, MUST read this thread,” Crenshaw wrote. “This is what Pelosi killed the rescue package for. ‘Corporate diversity requirement,’ ‘Airline carbon emissions,’ and the list goes on. Hold these people accountable. They are holding America hostage.”

As we noted this morning, the claim by Democrats and Pelosi in particular that they care about ‘average Americans’ is a straight-up lie.
While they (and their media propagandists) lambast President Trump for “doing nothing” about the outbreak, they are literally killing legislation aimed at mitigating the economic catastrophe coronavirus is causing.
And we’re supposed to believe that Democrats aren’t exploiting this virus to hurt Trump and the economy, which was gangbusters before the outbreak and the so-far outrageous overreaction to it.
Democrats care so little about Americans losing jobs and losing their life savings and retirement accounts they would kill legislation aimed at revitalizing and saving those jobs and those accounts…for better gas mileage for aircraft and fantasy “green energy” projects.
Let that sink in and positively remember that this November.
