Rep. Max Rose (D-NY) has called out House Speaker Pelosi for blocking a clean funding increase for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).

Rose’s condemnation follows reports that Pelosi wants concessions to enact more of her far-left agenda.

Townhall’s Cortney O’Brien has more:

The Payment Protection Program, set up to relieve small businesses that have suffered during the coronavirus pandemic and economic shutdown, ran out of money on Thursday. Congress could have added another $250 billion to the program last week but Democrats blocked the vote.

Rep. Rose, who represents Staten Island, shared the following message with Pelosi and other Democratic leaders. 

Sounds like he was stealing lines from Republicans like Sen. John Thune (R-SD) or GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy. On Friday Thune accused Democrats of trying to “hijack the process” to enact some “unrelated agenda items.” And for days McCarthy has been trying to fathom why Pelosi can’t see eye-to-eye with them on this emergency issue.

I hesitate to give Rep. Rose a pat on the back. After all, he was following the lead of Sens. Kyrsten Sinema (D-NY) and Tina Smith (D-MN), two of the first Democrats to break ranks with party leadership.

Meanwhile, Speaker Pelosi is making the most of softball interview questions and showing off her refrigerator stock full of ice cream on “The Late Late Show With James Corden.”

It used to be where this was not real news because a lot of Democrats used to do things for all of the people over what their party agenda’s were.

Bubba Love – This is so obviously wrong. There should be NO argument that they release more money for small businesses. I don’t understand why more Dems aren’t coming forward. In fact, I don’t understand why conscientious Dems don’t switch parties. The Democratic Party of JFK is dead and has been for a long time. It was shameful of Pelosi flaunting her expensive ice cream freezer along with her expensive ice cream as a lot of people are out of work and small businesses are struggling to stay open. If that doesn’t open some of the eyes of Dem voters, then nothing will. I really hope it has opened some eyes though. This is just a smidgen of what they can expect if the Dems are ever in power again.

I wish new crews would go to Nancy’s district and see the filth and sadness of their homeless community while she dictates like Hitler to the rest of America. I hope this Rep. is not the only one who is sick of her.

I hope California democrats wake up and do not vote her into office again! Pelosi has lost touch with the american people and has been on a power trip ever since President Trump was elected. Think of all the effort she, Schumer, Nadler and Schif have put into removing Trump with Russia collusion and impeachment and now talking about another impeachment. People are tired of these political power plays it is time to start doing the people’s business!

Democrats don’t care about the American people. They only care about hurting Trump! Like China, Democrats will let people die to achieve their goals.

That is so sad but true. The Democratic party today is nothing like the party is today. It is all liberal, communistic far left people. These people want to take down America and they don’t care about the fallout. Please people remember this at the polls.

I have the same argument against Pelosi but the things she is doing are just what all the D’s want. They think we are going to go along while they change us to a Communist country. They all keep saying this is their chance to turn our country to a different way They ignore the fact that we want it to remain free.

I guess someone tells them to tow the party line it will be a lifetime of benefits and money in their pockets. Seems to be the way it happens, just look at Harry Reid, feinstein, pelosi – how much wealth they have ammased.

I believe the Democrats died before J.F.K. did. .They are not the party that they were in 1950.

THE DEMOCRATS AGENDA IS TO OBTAIN AND SUSTAIN POWER AND CONTROL! THEY WILL HOLD POWER AT “ALL” COSTS. AT THE COST OF YOUR PROSPERITY! AT THE COST OF YOUR HEALTH! AT THE COST OF YOUR LIFE! LITERALLY, THEY WILL MAINTAIN POWER EVEN IF IT KILLS YOU, ME, US! THEY HAVE BECOME A POWER HUNGRY GROUP OF MANIACAL MONSTERS WHO CARE ONLY FOR THEMSELVES! THEY HAVE LONG SINCE FAILED TO SERVE THE NEEDS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!

I dont understand why any comment needs moderation, by who? They should publish your comments and your thoughts. We should be free to speak our minds unless it is threatening someone’s life or just one swear word after another.
I’d like to know who the moderators are and their qualifications. I doubt my comment will get past the so called communist moderators.. moderators sounds just like a communist society.

Don’t forget the reason the democrats have become so radical. It’s power and the illegal money and the few people who gain a lot of control. Look how much money China gave to Biden and son. Why did the democrats close all our manufacturing, as the rest of the world to China. China has bought up land including mineral rights in almost every country in the world. A lot in South America. This gave them the money, control to do whatever they want. Electing Biden will make it worse.

I agree with you about the second coming. He can come at any minute. God is fed up with the way people are acting about how much they have and not giving to people who need it.

Amen to you and Carolyn both. It’s sad to watch just how many that can’t see what’s right before them. Praise God that we’re so much closer for the return of Jesus. No more evil, pain, hunger or suffering for any reason. I pray many more wake up while they’ve still the time and chance to do so.
