Democrats Turn on Pelosi as Recess Threatens Stimulus Package

Someone needs to remind these “public servants” who they work for.

Americans far and wide are facing a fiscal reckoning in the coming weeks, as the global coronavirus pandemic continues to simmer in the summer heat.

The illness, and the need to employ social distancing to help prevent its spread, have shuttered a great many businesses around the nation.  Facets of the economy such as the restaurant and sports industries have been stymied incredibly, putting untold millions of Americans out of work.  This has led to one of the most severe financial downturns that America has ever faced, and, without assistance from the federal government, there is a humanitarian disaster waiting in the wings.

Amid all of this, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is calling for a recess…and even her fellow Democrats are enraged at the prospect of hanging the American people out to dry.

Rep. Ro Khanna, a California Democrat, called the House’s planned monthlong recess “absurd” and urged Congress to continue working on coronavirus relief legislation.

Khanna, a progressive, said he’s remained in Washington advocating for a deal between Congress and the White House.

“I think Congress should be in session,” Khanna said Tuesday during a Facebook town hall with his constituents. “I think it’s absurd for Congress to be going on a break during a pandemic and a national crisis.”

And that’s not all:

“I don’t think this is a smart move to recess and I agree with you,” Khanna said in response to a constituent’s question. “I share your frustration.”

More alarming still is the possibility that Pelosi and other Democratic leaders could be allowing the crisis to worsen in order to harm incumbent Republican President Donald Trump’s chances of reelection in November.
