GOP Leader McCarthy: Pelosi’s ‘done more to dismantle our institutions and delay relief’ than help the American people
GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy isn’t letting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi off the hook for her hair fiasco earlier this month, or her continued partisan efforts to stifle relief for the American people proposed by President Donald Trump.
I agree, her sanctimonious actions really are doing more damage to the nation and doing little to help those most vulnerable both economically and physically affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. Moreover, the Democrats are fighting even harder and dividing the nation even further over Trump’s constitutional right to nominate Justice Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court to fill the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat.
For Democrats — and as it appears by the party’s actions — that the American people can take a back seat and make the sacrifices needed in the hopes that they will win back the White House.
It’s all about winning the election in November. It’s all about winning even if that means cutting off any assistance to the most needed and stifling programs that would work to elevate the economic hardships.
McCarthy’s statements about Pelosi are right on the money.
First, McCarthy noted that on Saturday it marked “the one-year anniversary since Speaker Pelosi launched the most partisan weakest impeachment in U.S. history.”
On Wednesday in response to Pelosi’s threats made on Sunday in an interview with ABC news to impeach President Trump was another affront to the nation.
McCarthy fought back hard saying to Pelosi “I will make you this one promise, listening to the speaker on television this weekend, if she tries to move for an impeachment based upon the president following the Constitution, I think there will be a move on the floor to no longer, or the question of her being speaker,” McCarthy (R-Calif.) told reporters on Capitol Hill on Wednesday.
“She may think she has a quiver — we do too,” he said.
On Saturday, McCarthy reminded everyone that “it’s been almost two years since Nancy Pelosi took the gavel and Democrats have done more to dismantle our institutions and delay relief than they have to help the American people…And that trend continues.”
“Yesterday, House Democrats as advised by their leader speaker Pelosi blocked all relief for American small businesses,” said McCarthy.
He also jabbed at Pelosi’s hair fiasco earlier this month when security camera video surfaced showing her getting her hair done in San Francisco without her mask on, while all businesses were to remain closed.
“Perhaps Nancy will want to do more to help [small businesses] and not just violate local orders so she can get her hair done,” he added.
