Washington, D.C. – “The House speaker Nancy Pelosi has been badgering the GOP to pass her $2.2 trillion coronavirus relief bill to ‘crush the virus, so that we can reopen the economy and our schools safely.’ Yet her bill would do almost nothing to achieve those goals,” Betsy McCaughey writes in the New York Post.
“Her bill would rewrite election law for 2020, barring voter-ID requirements” and making other changes that have nothing to do with relief for workers.”

When it comes to clean air, clean water, and conservation, “for far too long, the Left has pursued ineffective and unworkable policies that unnecessarily put jobs and economic growth at risk, rather than achieving practical results. This all changed with the Donald Trump Administration, where actions speak louder than words,” writes Mary Neumayr, chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, for RealClearEnergy.
