Pelosi and Schumer drop the hammer, revealing the instruments to rapidly implement Biden’s American rescue plan
Spokesman Pelosi and Majority Leader Schumer tabled a joint budget resolution that would allow them to swiftly adopt Biden’s American rescue plan.
Pelosi and Schumer said in a joint statement to PoliticusUSA: “It is a responsibility of Congress to provide immediate, comprehensive aid to the American people injured by COVID-19. The cost of inaction is high and rising, and now is the time for decisive action. With this budget resolution, Democratic Congress is paving the way for the landmark Biden-Harris coronavirus package that will destroy the virus and provide real help to families and communities in need. We are confident that Republicans will work bipartisan to support support for their communities, but the American people can no longer afford to delay and Congress must act to prevent more unnecessary suffering. “
Republicans are welcome to join efforts to pass the US $ 1.9 trillion bailout plan, but Democrats won’t wait for them to get on board. Democrats have a go-big-go strategy.
The unity that the Democrats care about is with the American people. You won’t waste time wooing Republican Congressmen who will never endorse your proposals.
Republicans had total control of the federal government for two years, wasting their time cutting taxes on the rich and trying to overturn Obamacare.
In a month, four years from now, the Democrats will do more for the American people than Trump and the GOP.
