House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stunned Americans on Sunday afternoon when she proposed minor changes to the bipartisan Coronavirus relief package put together by the Senate, ultimately blowing up the entire effort altogether.
Now, she’s facing the wrath of angry, hurting Americans who are now petitioning that she resign from Congress as a result of her actions — 50,000 of them, to be exact.
“Nancy Pelosi Must Resign After Rejecting Coronavirus Relief Bill” is the Change.org petition headline — and the accompanying message is simply brutal. It’s as follows:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is playing politics with people’s lives.
On Sunday, she interjected herself where she did not belong, effectively upending bipartisan legislation in the Senate that would have helped millions of Americans and businesses through the the COVID-19 crisis.
Why? Because at the last moment, she wanted useless, petty line-items included, like additional bargaining powers for unions, increased fuel emissions standards for airlines, and the expansion of wind and solar tax credits.
What in the world do these have to do with helping people through a pandemic? Absolutely nothing.
She does not deserve to be Speaker of the House. She does not deserve to be in talks with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. She does not deserve to have an office in the halls of Congress.
Which means she doesn’t deserve the title of “U.S. Representative,” the hallmark designation of an individual whose job is to go to bat for citizens across the United States and deal with crises head-on.
What Nancy Pelosi did to the American people was utterly disgraceful and I hope you’ll join me in advocating for the resignation of the career California politician.
If you would like to join the effort to encourage Pelosi to resign from her powerful position as House Speaker and from Congress altogether, you can sign the petition here.
