Nancy Pelosi didn’t just swoop in out of nowhere to kill the bipartisan Senate bill.

It was part of the plan since at least last Thursday, when Senate negotiations kicked off with the Republican goal of a vote on the bill today.

That didn’t happen because Senate Democrats blocked the economic rescue bill after Pelosi pulls powerplay in House:

Last Thursday, after a session when Democrats in the House loaded up a list of liberal agenda items they wanted in a final bill, House Majority Whip James Clyburn, who almost singlehandedly won the Democrat primary for Joe Biden, revealed the extortion that was to come (emphasis added), via The Hill:

On a Thursday conference call featuring more than 200 members of the House Democratic caucus, lawmakers one by one laid out a sweeping wish list of provisions they want to see included in the nascent package, including a boost in infrastructure spending, an expansion of Social Security benefits and funding for states to set up an all-mail voting system in the event the pandemic extends into November’s elections.

“This is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision,” Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) told lawmakers, according to a source on the call.

None of what is happening is by mistake or spontaneous.

BTW, Clyburn also is the person who recently Compared Trump to Hitler, Warns U.S. ‘Could Very Well Go the Way of Germany in the 1930s’.
