(UnitedVoice.com) – Earlier this month, talks stalled between the White House, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to provide financial relief for COVID-19. To help Americans, President Trump signed four executive orders to try and do something as Democrats dug in their heels.
However, in the wake of the Democratic-induced United States Postal Service (USPS) concocted scam related to mail-in voting, Pelosi is calling back House members. The plan: to vote on a bill to give the long-hurting agency $25 billion in new funding.

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said it was encouraging that Democrats were finally ready to help the ailing postal service. The USPS has been running billion-dollar deficits for years and is becoming unsustainable. On Wednesday morning, August 19, Meadows said Pelosi should also include “skinny” COVID-19 relief measures the parties have already agreed upon.
The chief of staff suggested the legislation include direct payments for Americans, funding for schools, and more money for small businesses in the Paycheck Protection Program.
For weeks, Democrats have refused to introduce “skinny” legislation in the House that would provide some relief for ailing Americans affected by the COVID-19 economy. They argue any bill should be comprehensive. As the two parties refused to move from their positions, Republicans counter that providing relief where they agree is better than doing nothing. Additionally, the GOP says Democrats are hijacking the American people for liberal causes that have nothing do with COVID-19.
