(TNS) It should be more than obvious by now that Nancy Pelosi and her Garbage Party are exploiting the coronavirus outbreak a) to win politically; and b) to hurt President Trump.
Only, they’re hurting Americans instead.

Operating under the Democratic mandate of “Never let a good crisis go to waste,” the Speaker of the House has been holding up coronavirus relief legislation that, at a time when businesses have shuttered and workers laid off by the millions, would provide direct aid to both.
For no reason other that naked political power.
She and her party are not “holding out for a better deal.” They’re not “negotiating in good faith.” They certainly aren’t sabotaging the relief package because they “care about American workers.”
As Tom Tillison at BizPac Review noted:
Having their very livelihoods taken away from them as a result of the response to the Chinese virus COVID-19, many Americans are hurting and are looking to Washington to provide some desperately needed relief.
Relief that will help them keep a roof over their heads and food on the table. And for many, relief that will allow them to keep their small businesses from closing down forever — just as importantly, relief that will stop the U.S. economy from completely tanking.
Yet, at the hour of their greatest need, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is holding this relief hostage.
After blowing up a bipartisan effort in the Senate on Sunday, Pelosi introduced her own emergency coronavirus stimulus bill Monday, and it’s chock full of unrelated political priorities.
As Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., explained to caucus members last week on a call, the relief bill presents “a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.”
The president summed up what Pelosi and her Democrats are doing perfectly.
“Republicans had a deal until Nancy Pelosi rode into town from her extended vacation. The Democrats want the Virus to win? They are asking for things that have nothing to do with our great workers or companies. They want Open Borders & Green New Deal. Republicans shouldn’t agree!”

As Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell adds, Pelosi and the Garbage Party literally, at this moment in time when entire states are shutting down and tens of thousands of businesses closing, care more about airliner fuel efficiency than helping those Americans who are smarting from the over-hyped coronavirus outbreak:
These are just some of the unrelated demands Senate Democrats have used to slow relief for workers and families:
✖️ Tax credits for solar and wind energy
✖️ Special treatment for Big Labor
✖️ Airlines' emissions standards

“This is a crisis…why is only one side acting like it?” We’d like to know that, too.
“People are dying and all Nancy Pelosi and Democrats can focus on is ripping off the American taxpayer to help pay for their liberal wish list of government handouts,” National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Michael McAdams said in a statement.
An outraged former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino tweeted: “Nancy Pelosi isn’t a serious person. She an arsonist, not a fireman. She’s watching it all come apart to satisfy her lunatic fringe. Don’t EVER forget this.”

Actor James Woods chimed in as well, noting that Democrats really do hate our country — not a hyperbolic statement.
Woods tweeted: “I used to think #DemocratsHateAmerica was merely a derisive hashtag, but as we all watch Americans die while #Schumer and #Pelosi try to stuff the Stimulus Package with pork such as “solar and wind credits,” I know it’s true. They hate America.”

Adds conservative commentator and author Tammy Bruce, “@TheDemocrats are now officially handling your life & the economic stability of the US like a hostage negotiation. Absolutely appalling.”

And former House Speaker Newt Gingrich:
We now have the “Blackmail Americans” Democratic Congress for President Trump to run against in the fall. The American people-frightened by an unknown virus, worried about their jobs, paychecks and savings, concerned for their children and their country must be appalled by Pelosi

The Garbage Party and their media enablers are arguing that Democrats are merely “putting people first.” And unfortunately, there are far too many Americans who will believe that utter, disgusting lie.
