Democrats in the House of Representatives announced their plan to introduce a new “multi-trillion dollar” stimulus plan this week as the country slowly re-opens the economy during the Coronavirus pandemic.
“House Democrats are pushing forward with a massive fifth round of coronavirus relief legislation that could be their most far-reaching effort yet to address the economic fallout of the pandemic — and come with another price tag in the trillions,” reports Fox News.
“We’re looking at a multitrillion-dollar bill,” one House Democratic aide told Fox News.
“Skeptics of yet another round of historic spending are sure to chafe at the behind-the-scenes lobbying surrounding this bill — as many other types of businesses and workers are trying to cash in, including museums, theaters and performing arts centers,” adds Fox. “The Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York City (the Met) started an online petition last month asking for $4 billion in relief for America’s cultural institutions and nonprofit museums. The Met has an endowment of $3.6 billion alone.”
“Museums, zoos, theaters, and other cultural institutions employ more than 480,000 New Yorkers, generate $120 billion in economic activity in New York, and provide educational services to millions of people from around the world,” writes Rep. Nadler.

Pelosi was left speechless Friday when asked why her party is opposing emergency relief for small businesses; launching an incoherent rant about Sen. Mitch McConnell and local hospitals.
“Can you explain to those small businesses? They now feel that they’re in limbo and don’t understand why you’d be refusing this money now?” asked a reporter from C-SPAN.
“Well…. the… um… It’s clear, to my understanding…. When we talk to McConnell, he says we should do some of that, but he says let’s see how the money out there is working for local hospitals before we do more… but let’s not see how things are working… with small businesses,” responded Pelosi.
