“And just the other day, a number of Democrats sent a letter to the Speaker because she has been the common denominator holding this money up. Not just for small businesses, but for schools, for states, for the airlines — you begin to wonder if she is doing this because she wants the economy to fail before November…

“She’s done this with every COVID relief bill we’ve had. Remember in front of that refrigerator when we needed more money from her and she said ‘no’. Or when she flew back and held it up another week so the Kennedy Center could have more money while more people got laid off.

“What’s very interesting is the power that Nancy Pelosi has over these Democrats. When the Republicans put it on the floor yesterday, Max Rose voted against PPP. He talks one game in the district and [then] votes with Nancy Pelosi inside the House.

“That is what’s wrong, that’s why the American people need to call every one of their members of Congress and ask them [if they] have signed the discharge petition…

“It doesn’t matter if you are Republican, Democrat, woman or man, black or white or brown, it does not matter. We are all Americans in this battle.”
