Speaker Nancy Pelosi has taken a break from giving tours of her freezers to add her signature to the interim coronavirus relief package she and her party have been sitting on.
Moments ago, the House passed urgently-needed assistance to fight this coronavirus & save lives. With my signature, the interim coronavirus relief package goes to the President’s desk. #FamiliesFirst https://t.co/PPCaTcnwOc

For another perspective, here’s Fox News’ Bret Baier:
“Let's set the record straight. Once Republicans found out the PPP was going to run dry, there was a clean bill to replenish it. Nancy Pelosi didn't go for it. Period. So to say that the delay was Mitch McConnell's fault is just political jiujitsu for Nancy Pelosi.” @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/YUwqxRTUsT

"With my signature." Pelosi playing president. (That's why we had to wait more than two weeks. Can't let Trump have the credit.) Unfortunately for her, the Constitution doesn't say anything about the Speaker of the House "signing" a bill. It just says the House sets its own rules https://t.co/25vcPs3K2E

Was the delay because she was waiting for a special commemorative pen to be made up and shipped to the Capitol?

Thanks for delaying it weeks as people are trying to find ways to feed their families.

Now get on back to your palace and celebrate with a big old’ bowl of designer ice cream, Princess.

Urgently? Haha. I mean you sat at home eating ice cream for 14 days while American citizens are suffering. I know the working class and small businesses don’t matter to your rich elite ass. Newsome gave money to illegal aliens. Yeah you had no urgency!

Thank you @HouseGOP for making sure this went through even though Pelosi waited 1 week resulting in 4 more million jobs lost.

Now blame Trump and the Republicans for the delay!!
— David Lehn (@FLUFFYLEHN) April 23, 2020
Well you didn’t put hundreds of thousands out of work by holding it up or anything. ?

It wasn’t families first when you were holding up the bill to help your side achieve voter fraud. There’s a reason the right is against vote by mail, which is different than an absentee ballot, for those of you wanting to make that argument.

What nefarious extras did you throw into your bill? Funding for illegal immigrants? Funding for Planned Parenthoods abortions? Postal voting? You can't be trusted to be in Government. Secrecy is repugnent in a free society. Makes you particularly repungent Nancy. You ooze secrecy

Two weeks late

Don't give me the #FamiliesFIrst stuff when you held the whole thing up. You all make me sick.

Thanks for wasting a week
— NHISG (@DonTestani) April 23, 2020
Great! Now, what garbage funding or law that no one but you wants got tacked onto it?
— TiredofBullies (@MeighannCarter) April 23, 2020
Good to see you did something right for once, even if it did take you weeks of eating ice cream to get around to it. Now, try making it a habit to showing up for work.

"I delayed it till the last moment so you'd assocaite that sudden relief feeling with me. I just hope you forget that I caused that stress in the first place"

You should be ashamed of yourself this should’ve been done long ago!
— TerryN (@TerryWeizeneck1) April 23, 2020
Thanks Nancy, for really taking the time to think this one over. It’s not like it was a no-brainer or anything. @realDonaldTrump

My God woman!!! You are relentless and infuriating!! ?

Did you add funding for circuses and fun houses?

We’ll see soon enough.
‘Unreal’! ‘Gaslighter of the House’ Nancy Pelosi assigns blame for delay of latest coronavirus relief bill (just GUESS) https://t.co/lwJDetTaCX
