Opinion| Nancy Pelosi has given the American worker the finger once again, while at the same time pushing for funding for illegal aliens and measures to insure illegal voting. If you are an American with at least half a brain, why would you vote for a Democrat?
If small businesses fold up like cheap road maps, our economy may never get better. Small business are the real job creators in the United States, not major corporations.
And both Democrats and Democrats must get together and freeze immigration until most Americans are working again.
Nancy Pelosi is having a grand old time vacationing from her job while refusing to practice social distancing from her stash of gourmet ice cream. She should not be getting a paycheck while she refuses to do her job.
But there are 15 Democratic members of the House who are opposing Pelosi on this and have voiced their support for more funding for the PPP. ( Paycheck Protection Program)
Here they are:
Rep. Jason Crow (D-CO) said, “The @SBAgov ’s Paycheck Protection Program has just run out of money, leaving business owners who are trying to pay their employees stranded. We need to fund the PPP and other SBA programs — there are small businesses counting on our support.”
aid, “I’ve spoken w/ small business owners in our community – they need access to capital immediately.”
Rep. Kendra Horn (D-OK) said, “We cannot treat relief for small businesses like a political football. I’m calling on both parties to come together to fund PPP.”
“We must strengthen access for our smallest businesses, but that shouldn’t stop us from taking action. PPP needs funding now,” she added.
Rep. Joe Cunningham (D-SC) said, “This is unacceptable. As South Carolina businesses struggle, Congress cannot treat this program like a political football.”
“It’s time to put politics aside, act swiftly, and get more funding and relief into the hands of Lowcountry businesses,” Cunningham emphasized.
Rep. Anthony Brindisi (D-NY) said, “This is Washington politics at its worst. Families & small businesses are struggling, and our frontline workers need more support. Both parties must work together to secure more funding for the Paycheck Protection Program & other aid for our communities.”
Rep. Ami Bera (D-CA) said, “Small businesses across America, including in #CA07, are struggling from #COVID19 and looking for relief. We need to put politics aside and quickly get additional $$ to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).”
Rep. Gil Cisneros (D-CA) said, “The Paycheck Protection Program needs more funding. Democrats and Republicans must come together to pass a wholistic bill that addresses the needs of the American people right now.”
“PPP needs more. Hospitals need more. Cities and counties need more,” Cisneros said.
Rep. Max Rose (D-NY) said, “The Paycheck Protection Program needs to be replenished, and done so quickly. Let’s protect our small businesses, hospitals and make sure local governments don’t have to lay-off first responders.
“Only in DC would be this be difficult. Let’s get this done,” Rose added.
Rep. Tom O’Halleran (D-AZ) said, “Congressional leadership must come together now to fund PPP.”
“We need an emergency package that not only alleviates stress on small biz, but supports health care workers, communities hit hardest, & #AZ01 families relying on food/ checks promised under CARE,” he added.
Rep. Andy Kim (D-NJ) said, “You’re probably hearing a lot about programs being debated right now to help our small business owners. On my update today, I wanted to give you my thoughts on why we need to move forward to help them now.”
Rep. Cindy Axne (D-IA) said, “And while I’ve heard from Iowans about necessary tweaks for these programs – none of them can afford a political stalemate over refunding the program in this critical time.”
“I’m calling on the leaders of both parties to come together now and allow us to pass additional funding for this program as soon as possible,” she added.
Rep. Haley Stevens (D-MI) said:
We need to do whatever we can to plus-up the PPP program, to help Main Street businesses and to help those who have been handed an economic hardship through no fault of their own. Arguably this program should have had more money to begin with.
Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) said:
This week, the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) ran out of funding. Thousands of small businesses in Virginia need a helping hand, and PPP could be the difference between staying afloat or permanently closing. We need to pass more $$ for PPP now.
This proves that Democrats cannot be truthful.
Notice how they say both parties have to come together and pass more funding? The Republicans were on board from the beginning. Democrats alone have blocked the funding.
