Nancy Pelosi Admits No Amount of Gov't Spending Would Satisfy Democrats
House speaker reveals Democrats' plans for next stimulus bill
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi seemingly let her mask slip revealing some sobering truths behind the Democrats' true intentions surrounding the coming $3 trillion stimulus bill.
Speaker Pelosi spoke of the package during an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper.
“I know you’ve unveiled a $3 trillion relief bill that would include billions for testing. Were you satisfied by the administration’s pledge this morning of 40 to 50 million tests a month, if necessary, by September?” Tapper asked.
“It has to be at least double that, maybe 2.5 times that,' Pelosi snapped.
"And the sooner we do it, the better. It is a decision to open up the economy — testing, tracing, treatment, isolation if necessary,” she replied.
“We have put that forth in our bill with everything that goes with it, and with the ethic, value that it’s going to be there for everyone, not only the testing, the tracing and the treatment, but also whatever vaccine or therapies," she added.
"God sends us and science produces, that they will be accessible to everyone in our country as well,” Pelosi continued.
Pelosi was asked about Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy saying the bill is a “liberal wish list” of items.
“He knows that what he said isn’t so,” she said.
“But, putting that aside, I can’t be bothered about what others say.
“What I’m concerned about, what I’m proud of is what we are doing.
"And the fact is that, in all four of the bills that have passed before, they’ve all been bipartisan," she added.
"And we all in our caucus have agreed that everything is coronavirus-centric and also in a timely way that relates to the virus,” she continued.
“It’s too deadly to our lives, to our livelihood, to our democracy for us to use it for any other purpose."
"So, the money for state and local is to allay the cost of the — defray the cost of the outlays they’ve made for coronavirus and the revenue lost because of the coronavirus — testing, testing."
“The three pillars: Honor our heroes by supporting our state and local entities, so that they don’t lose their jobs, these heroes don’t lose their jobs, open up government by testing, tracing, treatment, et cetera. And the third is putting money in the pockets of the American people, all of it timed and centric to the coronavirus."

“It would be an endless amount of money if we put our wish list for the future in there. But that is not what the case is,” Pelosi said.
So it seems that if the Democrats did get their wish list, it would cost an endless stream of taxpayer's money.
Neon Nettle reported earlier this week that Pelosi revealed the stimulus package would include tax breaks for wealthy elites.
The stimulus package is meant to help American individuals and small businesses, something which the House Speaker doesn't seem to understand.
Pelosi also said the next bill would include funds for mail-in voting.
