An effort to resume coronavirus relief talks between White House officials and top Democrats stalled this week, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi saying it’s fruitless to revive the negotiations until the GOP agrees to a $2.2 trillion price tag.
Pelosi spoke with White House chief of staff Mark Meadows for 25 minutes on Thursday for the first time in close to a month, since the stimulus package efforts collapsed.

The Democrats are essentially holding our nation hostage for the federal funding for the pandemic.
Let that sink in for a minute, refusing to release emergency funds to help our nation and citizens during a global pandemic.
“We have said again and again that we are willing to come down, meet them in the middle — that would be $2.2 trillion, When they’re ready to do that, we’ll be ready to discuss and negotiate.
I did not get that impression on that call.”
As our nation works to protect its citizens and provide the much needed funds and care, the Democrats are refusing to budge until they get their way.
Regardless of ones personal beliefs over the pandemic and to mask or not to mask, there should never be a government that does not do everything within their power to provide aid to the people and to allow corrupt oligarchs to withhold funds is horrific.
Fox went on to explain, The measures would postpone the collection of payroll taxes for individuals earning less than $104,000 annually through the remainder of the year; partially restore supplemental unemployment benefits at $400 per week (25 percent of which would come from cash-strapped state budgets), extend student loan relief and discourage evictions.
We find ourselves living in a time when we are treated like cattle and the Democrats seem intent on letting the cattle suffer at their hands.
