Pelosi Says She Wants Trillions of Dollars in Next Coronavirus Aid Bill

U.S. House of Representative Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday that the next coronavirus relief legislation will need to include trillions of dollars in aid for state and local governments, struggling workers and their families and medical efforts to contain the virus.

“We need $1 trillion for state and local. We need another $1 trillion for unemployment insurance and direct payments. Something like that, but probably not as much, for the testing, tracing, treatment,” Pelosi told reporters, amid growing signs that momentum is gathering in Congress for a new legislative package.

She also said the Democratic-led House would address President Donald Trump’s “senseless” withdrawal from the World Health Organization in a forthcoming appropriations bill but provided no details.

  1. Sure Nancy, let’s spend $trillions on your special interest wish list. Let’s bail out bankrupt cities and states where giving away money is a means to get votes. What’s a few more $trillions in debt. Liberal/Democrat thinking to destroy America.

  2. Well of course she does!! I mean, her husband and at least 11 or 12 other members of the House had spouse that received BIG chunks of cash from the last PPP!!
    In the immortal words of Harry S Truman:
    “You cannot get rich in politics unless YOU ARE A CROOK!!”

  3. Well then, no additional coronavirus relief. We don’t need to be printing more money for Democrats. If they don’t want to go back work, screw ’em. And absolutely no money to the states. They’ve gotten enough federal dollars.

  4. Someone needs to ask this moron where she thinks this money will come from? She gonna print it in her basement??

  5. There is no way I would be in favor of giving Nancy any more money after I saw how the last funds were distributed. Millions that were intended to save small businesses went to Walmart, Starbucks, Target, and other major chains that support liberal causes. Thousands of small businesses shuttered in a month while big business thrived. Family restaurants couldn’t open while major food restaurants could arrange take out and online delivery. No way, Nancy. No way.

  6. Where are you going to get that money, Nancy? Going to pull it out of your @$$?

  7. All we need is a box of bullets to use against each evil Democrat !!

  8. If we can’t get our nation’s act together, and quickly, $2T probably won’t be anywhere near enough to hold our economy together.
