New York congressman Max Rose is bucking the trend of many on the left and cautioning to not include aspects fo the “Green New Deal” and other “random things” such as support for the Kennedy center in the next stimulus bill.
Fox News reports this is “not the time” for Democratic leadership to insert partisan, politically motivated provisions into emergency coronavirus-related stimulus packages, New York Democratic Congressman Max Rose warned Thursday.
Appearing on “America’s Newsroom” with host Ed Henry, Rose said that Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., are putting lives on the line by stalling relief intended for American workers and businesses.
“If, for a second, you think that this is an opportunity to insert some random tenets of the Green New Deal, some random things that support the Kennedy Center, or anything else that the far-left calls for, this is not the time,” he cautioned.
“I will be the first to come back on and say: ‘No, this is not the time to do this. This is wrong. You’re putting lives on the line.'”
As Republicans continue to call on President Trump and his administration to re-open America’s economy, Democrats have been accused of stonewalling after they blocked additional aid to the tune of over $250 billion for small businesses.
On Thursday, the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) — part of the more than $2 trillion bill passed last month — officially ran out of the allocated money and is no longer accepting applications from small businesses.
House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., complained that his liberal counterparts would not work across the aisle.
“Nancy Pelosi is holding up approval of more money that would keep the small businesses afloat, keep their employees paid for and paying their rent,” he told “Hannity” host Sean Hannity. “But, Nancy Pelosi says no because every moment of the time she wants to play politics and try to change history — just as she tries to blame this president, President Trump, who took that action.”
