President Trump Takes On Deadlocked Congress – White House Makes Plans To Bypass Washington On Relief Bill

What’s Happening:

It’s been months since Congress passed funding to help ailing businesses.

But it appears our lawmakers are unwilling to come to terms.

A bill that could bring relief is stalling, mostly due to partisan games on the left.

President Trump is growing tired of the dysfunctional D.C. swamp. So, it looks like he might bypass them:

The Trump administration is considering taking “a number of options” without congressional approval as negotiations on the fourth coronavirus stimulus relief package are stalled between the White House and lawmakers on Capitol Hill, Fox News has learned…

Meadows added: “There are two things standing in the way to a deal on enhanced unemployment benefits continuing. One is Sen. [Chuck] Schumer and Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi and the other is a negotiating tactic that puts people at risk.”

The Trump administration has suggested that it might bypass Congress to provide relief to Americans and businesses.

The administration slammed Congress for being unwilling to come to an agreement, while Americans continue to suffer.

There are a “number of options” the White House says it can take, without congressional approval, that might provide help to the country.

Meadows specifically criticized Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi for holding up negotiations.

Early in the COVID panic, Democrats in Congress twice held up needed negotiations to get funding passed.

Pelosi tried to push a bunch of pet project funding into one bill, forcing Congress to reevaluate their package.

Later, Pelosi and House Democrats refused to replenish the PPP, which later ran out of money.

As the crisis unfolded, Democrats even admitted they wanted to use it to get what they wanted. Pelosi and other Democrats even said, to the effect, “Never let a crisis go to waste.”

Other Democrat leaders, including Joe Biden, expressed a desire to “reshape” America as we know it.

Some have tried to push Medicare-for-all during the crisis, as well as other bloated, socialist programs.

Meanwhile, Democrats at the state level continue to push strict lockdown measures, preventing Americans from reopening their businesses and going back to work.

Key Takeaways:

  • The White House suggested it might bypass Congress to get relief to Americans.
  • Congress continues to delay a package, due to partisan politics.
  • Democrats have consistently delayed progress during the pandemic.
