Pelosi: House will stay in session until agreement is reached on coronavirus relief
By Scott Wong and Mike Lillis - 09/15/20 10:18 AM EDT

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Tuesday announced that the House will remain in session until the parties have an agreement on another round of emergency coronavirus relief.

In a conference call with the House Democratic Caucus — the first since the chamber returned from a long summer recess — Pelosi indicated she isn't willing to accept a "skinny" legislative package and told her troops the chamber's calendar will be extended until an agreement is sealed, according to sources on the call.

“We have to stay here until we have a bill,” Pelosi told lawmakers.


The surprise development reflects both the severity of the public health and economic crises caused by the coronavirus pandemic and the growing pressure Pelosi is facing from the moderate wing of her party, which is clamoring for leadership to vote on another aid package before Congress leaves town again for the elections.

Leaders of the Blue Dog Democrats have, for weeks, pressed Pelosi and other party leaders to take up another relief bill pre-election. On Monday, leaders of the New Democrat Coalition piled on, warning that lawmakers in battleground districts could be particularly harmed by congressional inaction. And leaders of the Problem Solvers, a bipartisan group, are set Tuesday morning to unveil a new aid package topping $1.5 trillion.

Like the Buffalo said, "Let the chips fall where they may." 

The Democrats have crafted this mess, let the electorate know. Nothing would make me happier than for them to lose the House.

I see this as a win-win for the Republicans,and a lose-lose situation for the Dims.

After all,even if all the Dims stay in session and vote,they don't have enough votes to pass anything,and while they are in DC sitting on their thumbs and spinning around,they ain't home campaigning.

Am I wrong about this?
The Democratic Party has declared war on America.

Read & parse carefully.  She's not saying they'll stay until Trump signs a bill, so I assume that means they'll leave as soon as they can get enough Rats to vote for something/anything.  That could be done in a day.

Probably.  I never heard of any action to do away with proxy voting.

I will NOT comply.

Nope, that's the way I see it too.
