The American People Want Congress to Act, But Nancy Pelosi Adjourned After 3 Minutes Today

Published

on

On Wednesday morning Speaker of House Nancy Pelosi called the House of Representatives into session at 10:00 AM and then adjourned the House less than three minutes later, completing a pro-forma session of its membership.

In comments to the media it was made clear by Pelosi and her staff that the House of Representatives will not reconvene today, that she will not commit support to the stimulus relief package that has been agreed upon in the Senate, that there will be no voting in House, and that the House would re-adjourn on Thursday morning at 11:00 AM.

Pelosi went on further to say “House Democrats will now review the final provisions and legislative text of the agreement to determine a course of action…. We’re reviewing it now. We have a staff and our chairman reviewing the bill. We’re optimistic but we’ll see. We’ll see the bill and see the when Senate votes. So there’s no decision about timing until we see the bill.”

In a tweet that went at nearly 2:00 AM on Wednesday morning, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced, “At last, we have a deal. After days of intense discussions, the Senate has reached a bipartisan agreement on a historic relief package for this pandemic. We’re going to pass this legislation later today.”

Details of the Senate stimulus relief deal includes: $250 billion for direct cash relief payments, $250 billion in unemployment insurance, $500 billion for distressed companies, $367 billion for small businesses, $130 billion for hospitals, and $150 billion for state and local governments.

The delay tactic of Speaker Pelosi not only harms American families who are already suffering medical and economic stresses due to the Chinese Conoravirus pandemic, but it also gives an opportunity to the more radical members of the Congress to further advance the policies of their purposed Green New Deal.

SCOTUS Hands Trump Administration Huge Pro-Life Win

Published

on

The US Supreme Court on Wednesday endorsed a plan by President Donald Trump’s administration to give employers broad religious and moral exemptions from a federal mandate that health insurance they provide employees covers women’s birth control under the Affordable Care Act.

The court ruled 7-2 against the states of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, which challenged the legality of the Trump administration’s 2018 rule that weakening the so-called “contraceptive mandate” of the 2010 Affordable Care Act, commonly called “Obamacare”.

The opinion was written by Justice Clarence Thomas, joined by Chief Justice John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh. Elena Kagan filed a concurring opinion in the judgment, in which Stephen Breyer joined. Ruth Bader Ginsburg filed a dissenting opinion, in which Sonia Sotomayor joined.

“We hold today that the Departments had the statutory authority to craft that exemption, as well as the contemporaneously issued moral exemption. We further hold that the rules promulgating these exemptions are free from procedural defects,” Justice Clarence Thomas wrote. “We hold that the Departments had the authority to provide exemptions from the regulatory contraceptive requirements for employers with religious and conscientious objections. We accordingly reverse the Third Circuit’s judgment and remand with instructions to dissolve the nationwide preliminary injunction.”
