Sara A. Carter criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi during Fox News’ “The Next Revolution” Sunday night for her response to the coronavirus pandemic, specifically her delay in pushing necessary funding through Congress after the emergency Paycheck Protection Program reached its funding limit of $350 billion last week.
The nationwide lockdown has only made matters worse for working Americans as the number of Americans filing for unemployment reached 22 million last week.
“If Nancy Pelosi wants to do the right thing for the American people as House Speaker, she should stop playing politics and she should put the blame where it needs to reside, and that is on the Chinese Communist Party that not only wounded and hurt their own people, but the rest of the world,” Carter said.

Carter added, “And if we stay together and focused on that, we can make real effective changes, but we can’t when the Democrats keep playing these political games.”
Pelosi has put the blame on President Donald Trump saying “his earlier delay and denial caused deaths.” During an interview on “Fox News Sunday” with host Chris Wallace, Pelosi assured American workers and small business owners that more money will be coming ‘soon’ pending bipartisan agreement.

“We want to add more money there,” Pelosi said, but added that “it is very urgent though that we support our — our police and fire, our health care workers, our nurses, our teachers.” She continued, “that’s what the state and local government is about, is meeting the needs of the coronavirus. And everything that we’re doing is about the coronavirus, understand that.”
Republicans have called for $250 billion in additional funding, but Democrats have refused the offer and the two parties are at a standstill.
“They will have more money as soon as we come to an agreement — which will be soon,” Pelosi said. “And I think people will be very pleased because these small businesses must thrive in a community where they’re, again, health is essential to them opening up.”

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal
In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.
Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.
Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.
Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.
Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.
Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
