For what crucial aide to help the coronavirus situation did Pelosi hold up financial relief to the people unemployed or not getting paid during the coronavirus crises, and to help rescue the economy?

1. free Obamaphones

2. Same day voter registration

3. Mandatory carbon emissions reductions for airlines

4. Automatic extension of nonimmigrant VISA's

5. Pay off $10K of every student's debt

6. Force federal agencies to explain why their aren't more minority owned banks

7. Forbid colleges from reporting anyone's immigration status

8. $35 million to the JFK center for the performing arts

She could have introduced bills later for ALL of these things.

But no, let the people who do not have enough money to pay rent or buy food, as long as we get carbon emissions reduced. The liberal/progressive/Democratic agenda at it's finest.

OR was it so that she could get revenge on Trump by holding up relief to the American people, the same "dirty little people" who voted for Trump in mass, in the first place, the hard working lower middle class and middle/middle class? Another fantasy of the liberal/progressive/Democrats, stick it to Trump and his evil voters. As long as they hurt we are happy.

OR was it a scheme to get crap passed? To make AOC and others happy. Go squad, get revenge on the little people who voted for Trump and get all your other little pet projects/pork projects passed.

Here is a list of what Pelosi and the Democrats added from another source: OP+Staff+List&utm_campaign=946656f7bc-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2019_01_31_08_56_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_a8407dc016-946656f7bc-147394609

Go to this article for what was in the original bill - all relief. Below are the crucial lifesaving and average US citizen helping items the Democrats had to hold up the bill to get it in.

.Expansive new tax credits for solar and wind energy
·New emissions standards for airlines and requirement of full offset by 2025
·Increased collective bargaining and carve outs for Big Labor
·Required same-day voter registration and early voting
·A bailout for the U.S. Postal Service, for the union pension fund, and for student loans
·Retirement plans for community newspaper employees
·Publication of corporate pay statistics by race and race statistics for all corporate boards
·A requirement for companies receiving assistance to impose job-destroying $15/minimum wage
·$1B “Cash For Clunkers”-style program where government buys planes from airlines
·$1.5M to study climate change mitigation efforts in civil aviation and aerospace industries
·New burdensome OSHA requirements on hospitals
·$1Bto build on program expanded by President Obama that provides discounted phone service for low-income consumers

I bet liberal/progressives/Democrats are thrilled to get these things through at the expense of those nasty little flyover Americans who voted for Trump. We have a friend who lost his job, that we sent enough money to help pay his rent and not lose his apartment. He was just getting back on his feet financially from a tragedy when this happened. AND NO, his landlord was not compassionate, nor would he wait. While Democrats withheld funds so the JKF center for the performing arts could get millions. Pffffffttttt!

So your OK with that $500 billion “Exchange Stabilization Fund” AKA slush fund that the most corrupt president in history will be the one overseeing it and deciding who gets it. There is nothing stopping him from awarding his own company billions of dollars.

Not sure who would want Trump to be in charge of something like that.

Well, one thing is for sure I wouldn't want Pelosi or AOC or the Squad, the new face of the Democratic Party and the direction it is headed to be in charge of stabilizing the Stock exchanges. They'd probably redefine "stock" and "exchanges" to mean baby seals in Alaska or snail darters, or stabilizing humanity through support for the Human Extinction movement AOC is fond of.

Who the heck would want a business man in charge of stabilizing the stock exchanges. Besides, let the exchanges fail, we need the great depression to destroy Trump, who cares what it does to the little people. (A liberal/progressive/Democrat idea that runs a thrill up their legs)

As long as the JFK center for the performing arts has plenty of money, that is where our real priorities should lie if one is a true Democrat.

The REAL Democrats at CNN, MSNBC, and Hollywood whiners and Pelosi can swim in their pools, work out on their gyms in their homes and wait it out in multi-million dollar mansions. While they redefine stock to mean human stock and send more money to Planned Parenthood to reduce the stock of humans.

The reason she will probably get away with this Cadillac-sized
pork sausage is because the MSM will spin it to the Repubs and
Trump are badmouthing the effort-- just for partisan politics.

No, Nancy... Rand and everyone else is railing against this because
you should have gone home 15 minutes after you got elected to the
chair. IT looks more every day you stay there, the one you deserve
to sit in hs some really thick wires going to it. This opportunism is
not only below even you, it's destroying the republic you supposedly
My only lament is -- what kind of voter reelected her even ONCE ?

I hope this gets shut down in the Senate or President Trump vetoes it.
I’m laid off as a result of the Chinese Coronavirus and was told by my employer to file for unemployment after I get my final paycheck.
I say no to a pork filled,left wing, democratic socialist bill!

I will take my hits and rough it without a relief package for the good of the country.
Pelosi and her ilk are putting their self interests first instead of those of the hard working American citizens of this country.

So the argument is Evil corporations... but we need these 12 things to be attached because they will never pass on their own and even though it has nothing to do with pandemic relief we are going to make it a requirement to help the American people.

At this point I would rather they pass nothing.

Didnt the Democrats throw and absolute snit fit when republicans held up Hurricane relief for New York with a similar stunt?

She is an evil, vindictive, old, self-serving hag. Everything she does is for the benefit of her base and party. She could care less about he common folk or their issues during this crisis. There is nothing she has put in the bill to help with the virus. Once again showing she is putting politics over peoples lives. This has to stop. Put the things in needed to get the country running again nothing else. Her proposal is a 1400 page document. It should be one page and it should say "Help the American people, medically and financially. People wont forget this kind of behavior.

Here is some of whats actually in the bill that the GOP wants to pass but the Dems are rightfully blocking!

• The bill includes a $500,000,000,000.00 corporate slush fund with little regulation or restriction, while leaving workers, families and children in the background.

• Corporate stock buyback language, that can be waived by the Treasury Secretary, is weak to say the least!

• Exec compensation limitations, for those accepting aid, only last for two years.

• Regulations on worker retention is weak and includes easy outs for companies; there are no assurances in the language that workers will benefit or be retained.

• There are no specific provisions to protect individuals from eviction, foreclosure or forbearance.

• No money for state and local governments to administer or protect residents during the duration of the crisis .

• No additional SNAP funds.

• No OSHA language to protect workers.

• Only 3 months on Unemployment Insurance with no language in extensions thereafter.

• Direct Payments are not available to the millions of people who did not file a return in 2018 or 2019, including Individuals who did not make enough money (more than about 23K) to file taxes.

- Individuals who make make more than 99K would also not qualify.

• No money to help with the treatment of the uninsured but affected

• No funding for PPE equipment funding for healthcare workers

I like to think I dislike all politicians equally give or take a little, but I am amazed at how much contempt I have for this woman. I didn't think anyone could come close to Hillary Clinton on the disdain scale, but Nancy pulled it off. Well done Madam Speaker.

Trump may very well go down as the best President in US history.

The worst president title goes to Barack H Obama. With his fake 7 layered birth cert, hair brained leadership, and parading a drag queen as his wife. Slick willie and Jimmy the peanut brain are right behind him

It's not passing with those conditions and there are a lot more than the ones the OP listed. One is companies that take money have to hire more blacks and minorities not based on merit. There will also be a Government team established to make sure companies are fully enforcing it for 5 years.

Total nonsense and nothing to do with anything. Basically a soft takeover of companies. They want them run just like government agencies. Quality, efficiency and innovation will decline. I hope no companies take the money. Just file for bankruptcy if it comes to that point. Still get bailed out without strings attached.

As for the student loan debt, look who is on the frontline right now; National Guard. They can join the National Guard if they want their student loans paid off and free tuition and taxpayers get something out of it.

Man, if you was going to sink it over a rider she should have shot the moon and just had it declare that Trump was Impeached again for...reasons. To see if it would slide through the Senate without notice.

What she gonna do if at one of the daily press conferences Trump tells all Nancy has done to sabotage this and then says the Purge may now begin and walk away?

Just as a rescue bill for the American people was ready to pass...Cruella Pelosi jumps on her private jet back to Washington just in time to drop her adult diaper and squat over it to release a barrel-load of pork and caviar-infused diarrhea.
