She’s not coming back from this one.
According to Breitbart News, Sen. Bill Cassidy slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stating she is using the “pain” of Americans to “leverage” the HEROES Act.
“The American people are hurting,” Cassidy outlined. “Speaker Pelosi is using their pain to leverage her HEROES Act. Why do I say that? Republicans offered to continue the unemployment benefit while we continued to negotiate on every other issue. Mrs. Pelosi said no, let the unemployment run out knowing that would increase the pain hoping to leverage her HEROES Act. Heroes Act, by the way, mentions marijuana more than it mentions jobs. The president cares. He’s trying to get aid to the American people that Mrs. Pelosi wants to deny. I approve it because we’re about the American people.”
“I think the real genius of this is to undermine Pelosi. She’s not going to let anything happen and let the cries of the American people move the action. Ideally, she quickly realizes she has to seriously negotiate; we’re able to replace his executive action with that which is enacted by Congress. In that case, every need is met,” he explained.
