Jake Tapper: “The Democrats walked away from the $1.8T deal, was that a mistake?”
Sanders: “That’s what I’m saying!”
Everyone who has followed the issue knows that House Speaker Pelosi tanked any potential COVID relief package because it would have been a political win for Trump just before the election.
Now that the media is projecting Biden has won the election, Pelosi is back at the negotiating table and is willing to take far less than what was “acceptable” during pre-election negotiations. Pelosi even admitted she tanked negotiations for purely political purposes.
And Bernie Sanders is not happy.
During a segment on CNN, Sanders noted that the failure to make a deal was a huge mistake as now any deal that will be made will provide far less relief.
Sen. Bernie Sanders concedes, "that's right," Democrats blocked coronavirus relief.
This will go down in history as one of the Democrat Parties’ most shameful acts: blocking relief the American people desperately need in the face of a pandemic.
