Even centrist House Democrats think Pelosi is hurting their party
« on: September 16, 2020, 07:27:57 PM »
One week after the media tried to downplay the fact that Senate Democrats blocked a coronavirus relief bill, vulnerable House Democrats are showing once again that it’s Democratic leadership that is stonewalling relief efforts.

The centrist Democrats who flipped Republican-held seats have been pushing Speaker Nancy Pelosi to stand down from her all-or-nothing approach thus far. Pelosi has been unwilling to compromise on her demands while Senate Democrats used the filibuster to sink the GOP’s bill.

Centrists such as Virginia Rep. Abigail Spanberger have insisted her fellow Democrats must bring something to the floor, saying, “My conviction is to actually do my damn job and come up with a solution for the American people.” New York Rep. Max Rose said that the actions of House leadership made him “disappointed to be a Democrat.”

Romans 12:16-21
Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceable with all.  Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.  No, if your enemies are hungry, feed them, if they are thirsty, give them something to drink...Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

They have some points

1. Nancy decided to spend the energy to pursue a worthless impeachment instead of directing attention to a lethal virus epidemic.
2. Nancy is keeping them in DC instead of campaigning at home for re-election, so the Republican opposition for that seat is given a free reign with the citizens who matter.
3. Nancy is stopping their constituents from getting another bonus check prior to the election.  Voters will remember who stopped these payments.
