House Democrats are playing politics with people’s lives again.
This weekend, they blocked multiple bills designed to provide aid in the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
Specifically, they blocked aid to law enforcement, because opposition to the police has become part of their agenda. And they blocked aid to small businesses, because they believe a weakened economy hurts Trump.
House Democrats Block Funding for Police, Small Business Aid
House Democrats blocked three bills on Saturday that would have provided funding for law enforcement, aid to small businesses, and more funding for potential coronavirus treatments.
Rep. Rob Woodall (R-GA) introduced a motion to defeat the previous question, which would have allowed for the consideration of three House Republican bills to better Americans’ lives.
The first bill, sponsored by Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX), would have provided emergency funding to continue the development of vaccines, therapeutics, and building up a strategic stockpile of personal protective equipment and other medical supplies. The bill would have also helped secure America’s manufacturing and supply chains.

The second bill, sponsored by Rep. Steve Chabot (R-OH), would have extended the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and allowed small businesses to receive a second PPP loan.
The third bill, introduced by Rep. Pete Stauber (R-MN), would have provided additional funding for police departments, better training, and body cameras.
All Democrats care about is power. Here’s what they did pass this weekend:
JUST IN: The House votes to provide $25 billion to the Postal Service and to block changes that could slow down service ahead of the election.
The proposal passed largely along party lines, 257-150, with 26 Republicans voting with Democrats. https://t.co/0tAmNiFqu7

Democrats are wasting taxpayer time on a postal conspiracy theory, but they just blocked three bills to provide funding for:
⛔ Vaccine development
⛔ Small business support
⛔ Police training and body camerashttps://t.co/6uucVLWREW

They don’t care about the American people.
They only care about regaining power by any means necessary.
