(NewsReady.com) – When Americans put someone in Congress, there’s an expectation that person is actually going to represent the people of their district, and the country as a whole. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) didn’t get that memo. In 2020, she completely failed to lead.
Although there are many mistakes to choose from upon looking back at the year, one, in particular, stood out: Pelosi’s complete and utter failure to get a COVID-19 stimulus bill through in a timely manner. For months, the Democrat held-up negotiations because Republican lawmakers didn’t want to reward poor leadership by allocating billions in funding for cities and states.
.@RoKhanna was the only elected progressive who had the courage to call Pelosi out publicly on this, as she's callously plays politics and holds up a stimulus before the election, quibbling with provisions she'd happily accept under any other scenario. As millions keep suffering. https://t.co/YcrzZcYAhS

While Pelosi refused to budge, Americans literally lined up at food banks so they could feed their families. As we prepare to step into 2021, you have to wonder what the Democratic Party could possibly be thinking as they get ready to give her another term as House speaker.
