WATCH: Pelosi Willing To Put Lives At Risk Over Coronavirus, Says It's Her Way or the Highway


You would think at a time like this, Democrats and Republicans could work together to tackle this mess with the coronavirus, however, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi isn't about to let that happen.

Currently, Congress is working toward putting together a proposal on how to financially help people who are going to be impacted by the coronavirus, because the way it's looking, it's going to be devastating.

House Democrats put forward a bill that is supposed to "help" but she's not willing to negotiate it at all and there are some elements that are just not a good idea in it.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said there's two "major problems." First, creating a paid sick leave program through the Social Security Administration that would take six months to set up and hamper the agency’s normal functioning of disbursing checks to senior citizens. The second is forcing permanent paid sick leave "for all businesses without exemptions and no sunsets," McCarthy said.

But McCarthy expressed optimism that all sides could come together in the short term and find some sort of agreement on immediate needs.

“I think we can get this done in 24 to 48 hours,” McCarthy said.

But Nasty Nancy doesn't want to wait. She thinks that she's too important to wait and that they need to just agree to what the Democrats are proposing.

The bill did not include a provision for a payroll tax holiday which President Trump proposed because Pelosi isn't about to do the President any favors by helping the American people.

Not to mention that this all comes after Pelosi held up a previous vote on the coronavirus weeks ago so that her and other Democrats could go out and run ads against the Republicans.

Kevin McCarthy told Laura Ingraham about it,

"Look how much politics they want to play. The dirty little secret. We have a coronavirus. We have government funding that we need to fund this. You know what Nancy Pelosi the Speaker did? She withheld the bill last week. You know why? So the DCCC could run ads against seven Republicans… They actually took the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee and spent money, went into the seven Republican seats and campaigned against them about the coronavirus when she’s the Speaker of the House instead of putting America First she put politics first and held the bill from coming to the floor."
