(AbsoluteNews.com) – The American people have been waiting for another COVID-19 stimulus package for months. However, Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (CA) has refused to agree to a deal with Republicans unless it gives money away to inept state and local governments. High-ranking Dems are starting to push back against the California Liberal.
On Monday, December 14, Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) called on Pelosi to bring a scaled-down stimulus package to the floor. The senator said “there’s no excuse” for the leader to continue her crusade and he implored the Democratic leadership to “give [lawmakers] a vote.”
Dick Durbin says Congress should vote on Covid package that doesn't incl liability or state and local aid. Calls $748B in other stimulus a "consensus bill."
"There's no excuse for either the Speaker or the Leader… Don't let us go home for Christmas without a vote on this."

The final aid from the CARES Act will expire at the end of the month. Congress needs to pass another bill before that happens. If they fail to do so, millions of Americans will start the new year in misery. It’s time for Pelosi to put partisanship aside and do her job, even Durbin agrees.
You Deserve the Absolute Truth!
