And stops the entire stimulus package to introduce her own pork laden bill. Living proof that the Dems just cant let a really good lethal crisis go to waste. Wonder how many people are gonna die while she and Shumer dig their heels in and continue their demands? Thing is the Senate and the House are gonna lose their Dems in droves over this. Just one more reason to eject the loons from office in Nov.
A commentator made a comment that the way the House is acting under SanFran Nans leadership is self destructive and if Harry Reid were still in the Senate she would never get away with it.

The GOP is doing the same, as in taking advantage of the crises to push their pre-COVID agenda items.

It may not seem so because the Dems are so much better at this kind of thing, but the GOP is trying hard to catch up.

CNN had the story as its headline yesterday and they weren't sugar coating it.

It was Democrats Holding Up Coronavirus Bill or some such.

Today there is no mention of it on the front page.

The DNC must have called them.

show a source showing any of these claims...here is a link to the bill...read through it and tell me where you find all this stuff the federalist is whining about....while they are okay with a 500 billion dollar slush fund for big corporations being doled out by trump cronies at Treasury with no real oversight..

how is that pork? you are against safeguarding the accuracy of elections? how much would that cost? how much would doing the right thing and giving DACA Dreamers citizenship cost? do you see why you are lying when she says she is dropping in pork? these proposals cost hardly any money or funding, just common sense action, and are always included in funding proposals from both sides.

for pork, look to the senate repubs taking orders from corrupt ass sleazy trump- a 500 billion dollar slush fund controlled by trump cronies with no real oversight or mandates for these companies to use this dough to pay their employees, not use it to buy back stock or make themselves richer...

Now that is some pork.....not wanting audits for elections or giving citizenship to DACA Dreamers who deserve it.

how is that pork?
Has nothing to do with the stimulus. The loony bin is looking for a way to get their agenda thru without any real negotiation on merit. Whether a particular item in the bill is or isn't useful etc is irrelevant. If it isn't directly related to the subject it shouldn't be in the bill. Most of the pork in the bill the Dems were salting it with were shining examples of the "bridge to nowhere", crap that they would never get any other way.
Speaking of irrelevant, the bill has been agreed on.
