"House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is facing some pushback among some Democrats after sharply rejecting the White House's latest, and most expensive, $1.8 trillion coronavirus relief offer over the weekend. Andrew Yang, a former Democratic presidential candidate, tweeted on Saturday."
About the video:
"Nancy Pelosi take this deal!" He said to Nancy Pelosi, “To put politics aside, people are hurting." In addition to him, Ro Khanna, a Congressional Progressive Caucus member, tweeted Sunday $1.8 trillion was already a "significant" sum of money. He told Pelosi to “Make a deal & put the ball in Mitch McConnell’s court”. Ro Khanna goes on to explain that the “people in need can’t wait until February and that 1.8 trillion is significant & more than twice Obama stimulus”. He said that ultimately “it will allow Biden to start with infrastructure. Obama won in 08 by doing the right thing on TARP instead of what was expedient. Make a deal & put the ball in McConnell court.”
President Donald Trump on Monday called on Republicans to skip days of hearings and quickly confirm his Supreme Court nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, so they could work on approving a stimulus package. He said on twitter that “The Republicans are giving the Democrats a great deal of time, which is not mandated, to make their self serving statements relative to our great new future Supreme Court Justice, and personally, I would pull back, approve, and go for STIMULUS for the people!!" In addition to this, he came out later I the day on Monday again and reiterated his call for more stimulus. Trump said that “Republicans should be strongly focused on completing a wonderful stimulus package for the American People!"
Finally, U.S. Sen. Cory Booker and other Senate Democrats blasted their Republican colleagues Monday for moving ahead with the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett rather than take up another coronavirus stimulus bill. Booker said that “they should be, as the Senate, working in a bipartisan way to try to get this virus out of control, to get relief to who are hurting or struggling,” He said that “instead of doing anything to help people who are struggling right now, we are here.”
