“Such pleasure it brings a Republican’s heart to see Nancy Pelosi get ripped apart.”
Republican Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) tore into Democrats from the Senate floor Monday, singling out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for delaying critical assistance to the American people in a time of economic crisis to pursue a “liberal wishlist.”
The government has a duty to provide relief, Barrasso stressed, because it is shutting down the economy. While the bipartisan relief measure addressed the economic crisis, he said Pelosi “flew back from California to throw a monkey wrench into the works” and did so successfully.
“It is a wishlist, a liberal wishlist. It’s astonishing. They are delaying direct assistance so they can play to the liberal left,” Barrasso said.
“The environmental extremists. The labor special interests. We’re here trying to fight for the man and woman on the street in our home towns, and yet they’re fighting for the Green New Deal,” he added.
“Bernie Sanders may have lost to Joe Biden, but the Green New Deal of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and that entire crew is alive and well in the Democrat cloakroom and is controlling the actions today on the floor of the United States Senate,” he continued.
Barrasso added that the Speaker’s push has everything to do with a deal she cut with the Democrat caucus in order to remain Speaker of the House.
Pelosi “has been pushing this extreme environmental agenda from the moment she cut the deal to remain as Speaker and said to the liberals, ‘I will do what you want if you just allow me to be Speaker again,’” he explained.
That, he continued, is why she is packing her proposal with progressive agenda items like diversity on corporate boards, collective bargaining, and election reform.
If you watch one thing on Dems blocking coronavirus relief, make it this. The American people are losing their jobs left and right and Pelosi is holding them hostage with partisan demands.

“Where does that fit into a bill to rescue the American people who right now find themselves in the throes of a disease that may kill them and an economy that has been shut down?” he pondered.
“That’s why the Democrats aren’t on this floor,” Barrasso added. “Because what they are doing cannot be defended.”
You simply must view his exquisite takedown of Pelosi and her Storm Troopers on the left. Enjoy with a fine Merlot.
