Every day, our office is flooded with messages from Pennsylvanians whose businesses/livelihoods have been decimated by this pandemic. Imagine their frustration when we tell them that Speaker Pelosi ignored real relief this week & instead pushed pot & exotic animal legislation.

This week the House is voting on tigers and marijuana legislation but nothing to help small businesses who are struggling. Once again, Speaker Pelosi's misplaced priorities are hurting Michigan workers and job creators.

Hmm 🤔 Gov. Cuomo has been nominated for an Emmy, for “effectively” hosting a daily televised briefing on . We agree he put on quite a show, denying and covering up how his reckless mandate endangered thousands of nursing home residents.

4⃣0⃣ That is how many times House Dems have blocked our effort to give small businesses access to the over $130B in unspent funds that remain in the Paycheck Protection Program. This week, House Dems felt that voting on tigers & marijuana took priority over aid for small biz.

Can we all agree that access to the $130B+ of unused funds will help small businesses and workers? Not Speaker Pelosi...she’s scheduled a vote to legalize marijuana and help subsidize marijuana businesses...but not a vote to unlock those PPP funds.

🚨THREAD🚨 For months, Democrats have peddled a false narrative that schools and their reopening schedules would jeopardize the public's health and cause COVID-19 cases to skyrocket. The data is abundantly clear. They were wrong. Here are the facts⬇️

There's still over $130 billion left in the PPP, but Speaker Pelosi continues to block legislation that would release these unused funds. Instead of delivering much needed relief, Speaker Pelosi is prioritizing a cannabis bill this week. Americans deserve better.

The Paycheck Protection Program helped save 51 million jobs and could save even more, if Speaker Pelosi would listen to and members of her own party who want to help small businesses.

There is over $130 BILLION left in the PPP and instead of delivering additional funding to Main Street, Speaker Pelosi is prioritizing a cannabis bill... This is a slap in the face for hardworking Americans.

Seriously... no help for workers or small biz, but we are voting on a bill to help the pot industry? $138 Billion in unspent PPP funds waiting for the House Dems to act and this is what Speaker Pelosi prioritizes?!?! 🙄🤦‍♂️

Speaker Pelosi continues to block releasing unused funds, which would help small businesses and workers. Appropriations work is far from finished. The critical NDAA awaits completion. Yet, House Dems are prioritizing a cannabis bill this week...

There is still over $130+ billion available in the Paycheck Protection Program for businesses to use, but Speaker Pelosi is prioritizing passing marijuana legislation this week. We should be focused on supporting our workers & businesses right now – it is time to reopen the .

As workers struggle, Nancy Pelosi is wasting our time with marijuana legislation. The clearest example yet of her warped priorities.

This is outrageous. American workers & businesses need relief, & they need it now. We should be voting to distribute the remaining $130+ billion in unused Paycheck Protection Program funds this week to support Americans in need. Speaker Pelosi, again, we are asking for a vote.

Let me get this straight: Nancy Pelosi is blocking a bill to deliver unused Paycheck Protection Program funds to workers and small businesses. But she managed to find time for a vote on pot legislation this week. RT to tell Dems to quit blocking aid for Americans in need NOW!

Democrat politicians can: - Attend indoor birthday parties - March at protests - Go to hair salons during lockdowns But they won't let you: - Go to church - Open your business - Send your kid to school - Celebrate Thanksgiving They think they're above you.

Here's the truth Dems won't tell you about their climate plan: When their insane policies force American manufacturers to shut down, manufacturing won't stop. It'll get shipped along with our good-paying jobs to countries like China that emit carbon at dramatically higher rates.

This says it all: Biden wants John Kerry—the man behind the disastrous Obama Iran deal—to call the shots on energy. We'd be back to the same failed policies. - Dependent on foreign energy - Jobs/manufacturing sent overseas America would be the loser. China would be the winner.
