Pelosi Continues To Block Clean Expansion of Paycheck Protection Program, Brags On Late Night TV About Her Ice Cream Cache

Pelosi Continues To Block Clean Expansion of Paycheck Protection Program, Brags On Late Night TV About Her Ice Cream Cache

Tens of millions of people have been thrown out of work and are seeing their businesses and communities collapse. To say that Pelosi is tone deaf is an understatement. She’s taken workers and small businesses hostage to her unrelated spending demands, and now she’s mocking them.

The $350 billion Paycheck Protection Program is about to run out of funding, after Senate Democrats blocked a proposed $250 funding increase unless Republicans agreed to unrelated Democrat funding requests.

We covered the Senate Democrat action, fully supported by House Democrats led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, last week, Democrats block expansion of Paycheck Protection Plan, demand more unrelated spending:

The goal is to keep people employed until the economy can restart, and hopefully to keep small businesses afloat. Yet Democrats once again are holding such relief hostage to additional demands for funding and social goals.

All Republicans in the Senate sought to do was increase PPP funding from $350 billion to $600 billion. But to do that, the Senate needed to vote by unanimous consent to consider the bill….

Democrats refused. Maryland Democrat Ben Cardin, and  rose to object when Mitch McConnell requested unanimous consent. Cardin’s argument was that there are additional things that need to be done, so we’re not going to expand funding for PPP unless we simultaneously address those other issues.

Nancy Pelosi sent a message of thanks to Senate Democrats for blocking the clean funding expansion, and claimed some of the credit:

While there have been reports of Small Business Association and bank processing problems, loan commitments have been made that come close, as of this afternoon, of exhausting the current funding. CNBC reports:

Much-needed small business aid is beginning to trickle out and more is expected in the weeks to come as banks start to disburse the rescue funds to Main Street. But the first-come, first-serve Payroll Protection Program of $349 billion in aid may be nearing a ceiling for loan commitments, with more than 1.3 million loans given approval at a value of more than $296 billion through Wednesday afternoon, according to the Small Business Administration.

The program could reach its funding limit by the end of Wendnesday, according to a source familiar with the matter.

As this funding approached its end, what did Pelosi do? She went on Late Late Late Night show to brag about her well-stocked freezer filled with ice cream, and she was so proud of the appearance she also shared it on Twitter:

Here’s the show segment:

And she’s promising to continue to block clean increased funding:

“Now 700,000 small-business applications are in limbo & no new loans will be made until the game of chicken in Congress ends & additional $ approved,” Senator Marco Rubio, Republican of Florida, said on Twitter. “Inexcusable.”

But Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California warned again on Wednesday that the Republican proposal would not pass the House, saying in a statement that it failed to address “critical issues.”

Tens of millions of people have been thrown out of work and are seeing their businesses and communities collapse. To say the Pelosi is tone deaf is an understatement. She’s taken workers and small businesses hostage to her demands for unrelated spending, and now she’s mocking them.

Chipper shredder, face first.

Funny how Pelosi always gets the best of McConnell and the republicans.

And by funny I mean to say that we, the serfs, are always the chumps in their Three Card Molly confidence game.

    The Republicans have no competent leadership. The Democrats, when they have the majority, ignore the Republicans, tell them to go to hell, and do whatever they want. If Democrats can’t get most of what they want in a bill, they scuttle it all — Republicans surrender, even when they have a majority, and will pass a Democrat wish-list rather than nothing. The entire corrupt, cowardly and incompetent Republican establishment needs to be purged.

Did Pelosi lick the Blue Bunny?

The advertisements write themselves….

texansamurai | April 15, 2020 at 9:34 pm

just doesn’t realize she is in fact ” touchable “

Somebody cough on her.
.

Such a vile, evil creature. I’m not sure what rock she crawled out from under, but she is well past her sell by date. Is it wrong of me to hope that Karma leads her to contract the virus?

She’s standing in front of $20K+ refrigeration talking about $12/pint ice cream. I don’t think she understands my economic situation. Or my neighbor’s. Or my mechanic’s. Or even my doctor’s.

Comanche Voter | April 15, 2020 at 9:49 pm

Bend over the table Nancy. I know where I’d like to shove a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Chunkey Monkey.

This vile crone personifies everything that is wrong with the contemporary Dhimmi-crat Party, and, its career, ivory tower apparatchiks, in spades — narcissism, self-reverence, avaricious self-enrichment, callousness, arrogance and the apparatchik’s total indifference to the consequences of his/her actions, or, inaction.

Speaker Pelosi makes Marie Antoinette look like a kind generous person. But then, I prefer cake to ice cream. I’d be careful, though. If there is anyplace likely to have a Reign of Terror, its California and the Bay Area in particular. Nancy, don’t let Antifa catch you.

I just called my Rep and referred to the $12 pint ice cream. I think I’ll continue to call tomorrow and so on….

If Pelosi wants to eat $12/pint ice cream than I’m going to demand even more!

Keep mentioning the $12/pint ice cream….

Ok – I just checked the Pelosi website and apparently us peons cannot send her a message unless we are within her district.

This means that we all have to send messages to our own reps. Grrrr…..

The Friendly Grizzly | April 15, 2020 at 11:32 pm

It matters not one single bit but she is tone deaf. In her district, she will be reelected as long as she wants that office.

Pelosi is more clueless than a two bit female street walker in Chicago’s gay bathhouse Man’s Country.

Nancy Pelosi was born March 26, 1940. She is 80..

She doesn’t show a grey hair or a wrinkle? So her face is as fake as everything else…

Laura Ingrahams covered this.

Seeing as how they totally fucked owner/operator businesses with the first stimulus, block it all you want Nancy- you have my FULL SUPPORT.

This wasn’t about saving businesses- this was about keeping W2 workers off of unemployment.

I got an email that sounds like the grant program will run out of money, and they are only advancing those funds to companies that have payroll… I’m not talking about the PPP, I’m talking about the grant for small businesses.

I give my full support to business owners defying the shut down and operating anyway.

    rebelgirl in reply to Andy. | April 16, 2020 at 8:32 am

    Who told you that? I am an owner/operator and our bank took our application. It has more to do with how your accountant set your business up..I am a LLC

      I’m not talking about the PPP which BTW
      1- is out of money- no more apps being taken as reported today.
      2- is administered by banks

      I’m talking about the small biz loan program that was for non-payroll. First 10k was to be a grant. It is not administered by banks, so the email I got was from the horses mouth.

      The fact that they are throttling money based on attributes that have NOTHING to do with the purpose of the loan/grant shows they are going to run out.

      Fuck it- go about your day. Lock down be damned. Most homeless have tested positive with no symptoms at all.

Who knew the left would force this country to go John Galt?

We are nearing a breaking point, this BS can’t be sustained, even though the Il Duce Pelosi left seem to think it can be, and that it will turn out roses for them.

I expect that some small business owners will finally reach a point where they will ignore the left dictators who have handcuffed the economy, that or close up shop and do a real John Galt move.

The left is pushing for a civil war. It’s building in Michigan. It is near the point where there is nothing left to lose. But Il Duce Pelosi will always have her ice cream…

Daughter-in-law No. 4’s law office received their loan – she’s excited to be on payroll for the next 8 weeks instead of nothing. She’s already burned her sick time/vacation. They have a new house and she was worried about payments. Daughter-in-law No. 2’s real estate firm is still waiting to hear if they got theirs. She’s been working from home doing mortgage refi’s (that’s gotten really big this last week) so at least she has a paycheck.

Nancy Pelosi has no idea how badly needed those loans are.

    Nancy Pelosi has no idea how badly needed those loans are.

    Oh, I wouldn’t say that. This vile and horrid woman knows exactly how badly those loans are needed. She just doesn’t care about the suffering of the ordinary, average citizen. Because as one of the richest, if not the richest, member of Congress she doesn’t have to care.

      Pelosi did not personally write and give this propaganda to her communist pay masters. So please do not repeat that lie.

      CNN this week published a report copying almost word-for-word a Chinese Communist Party press release praising the People’s Liberation Army Navy’s efforts to contain the coronavirus and degrading the U.S. Navy’s failures to do likewise.
      Almost as bad as CNN’s promotion of Chinese propaganda is the network’s defense of its decision to run state-sponsored agitprop.

      The story was a “single update from our international site�s 24-7 Live Story,” a CNN spokesman told the Daily Caller. He added, “[The story] explicitly states the sourcing as a PLA story and identifies the Global Times as ‘a state-run tabloid.’ That transparency is key as a global news source serving a global audience.”

      Everything about the People�s Liberation Army “report” cited by CNN screams that it is government propaganda, yet it ended up on CNN’s website anyway.

      How?

She’s so cute. Each pint should be shoved up her ass.
Then put her in the freezer.

A 93 yr. old gorgyle, frozen dentures and 2.5 million dollars worth of plastic surgery. What could go wrong?

Interesting that a Global Warming hussy like Peelosi is so in love with Ice Cream. She must not have done the math on all of the cow farts it took to make that ice cream and keep it cold.

Not only do we need term limits, but age limits too.

So, Nancy and crew are holding additional funding for SBA loans hostage because the legislation fails to address so-called “critical issues.” If these issues are so “critical,” why doesn’t Queen Nancy bring them up in separate legislation instead of piggy-backing on a truly critical funding bill?
Seems to me that if they are truly “critical,” they would easily pass both houses, right?

I see she has a bunch of Jeni’s ice cream. It would be such a shame if they had listeria contamination again and she came down with some kind of nasty sickness…

If reports are to be believed, her refrigerator and its contents are worth more than the extensive remodeling of the entire lower floor of our town home. Somebody help me feel sorry for her.
.

I hope her expensive ice cream gets freezer burn…

    pwaldoch in reply to pwaldoch. | April 16, 2020 at 1:42 pm

    Or better yet, one of her expensive fridges conks out on her and she just looses the entire ice cream load.

IF we had honest journalism then political consequences would quickly squelch behaviors like this.

BUT …

Corruption aside. Treason aside: she really is an obnoxious asshole.

Because tax payer money belongs in her friends and HER pockets – not back to the actual tax payer who MADE the money…

NOooooooooo we can’t have THAT, nope…

Thanks California for “voting” her in over and over and over again… You s%$k
