McCarthy says Pelosi is sole ‘roadblock’ causing COVID-19 relief inaction – By Ebony Bowden (New York Post) / Nov 19 2020
WASHINGTON — House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy ripped House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over the months-long COVID-19 aid stalemate, saying she was the only person stopping relief from reaching tens of millions of Americans.
“Things are still at the same place. There’s one roadblock. There’s one big wall that’s stopped this the entire time and it’s Speaker Pelosi,” McCarthy (R-Calif.) said during his weekly press conference on Thursday.
“I would think after the politics she played and the election being over, that she’d now put the American public first. She still seems to be in the same position,” he went on.
Congress has not passed any economic relief since April, with Democrats and Republicans unable to agree on how large the package should be and what should be covered.
