Crenshaw Calls Pelosi Leadership “Awful, Heartless”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) addressed the American people this week, taking part in a press conference with reporters to discuss how Congress would be moving forward regarding financial relief for Americans.
In speaking to reporters, Speaker Pelosi commented that what’s on her agenda is “how we address the needs of the American people, and we have to do it in a scientific way.” However, Republicans took offense at the information shared, commenting that Pelosi had leveraged “aid for small businesses and families to score political points” and noting that “Congress could have taken action months ago, but Democrats obstruction stood in the way.”
In response to the press conference, Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R) aimed criticism at the House Speaker, expressing that “it’s hard to imagine a more awful, heartless strategy by Speaker Pelosi” and adding that “we’ve been telling the American people this for months.” The only difference is that “now she is actually admitting it.”

As well, Democratic leaders across the United States has also received criticism over their lack of following guidelines that they themselves have set for their respective states.
As Democrats continue to call for another lockdown in order to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, Republican leadership has made it clear that they do not agree with another lockdown, arguing that it would negatively impact Americans and small business owners.
