He’s absolutely right about this…
Recently on “Fox & Friends,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) expressed frustration with the way House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) continued to give Congress troubles in coronavirus relief efforts.
According to Breitbart, “Well, what it would do is something that we’ve been requesting for the last two weeks — more funding for the small business program,” McCarthy stated. “This business program has worked very well. More than 1.6 million businesses requested the money to pay their employees, to pay their rent. Unfortunately, Nancy Pelosi has held that up for the last two weeks. What we have watched and the one question I have watching her on the Sunday show, name me one productive thing Speaker Pelosi has accomplished in this pandemic. When President Trump in January 31, put in the ban from China, February 24, she asked people to gather together in San Francisco.”
“She actually fought the ban,” McCarthy said. “When we wanted to put the CARES Act together, she came in, held it up. Now we had a small business program working. She’s now held up the money. There’s 700,000 small business applications in right now trying to keep their doors open. Last week we watched five million people, new numbers for unemployment. How many more millions of Pelosi’s layoffs will we have to endure before she’ll put people before politics? Even at this moment to get this agreement, we could have been done yesterday, but the Democrats continue to hold up even though we have agreed to all the numbers.” You can watch a clip of McCarthy’s comments here.
