Blitzer frequently makes assumptions about what is factual. Just because a person or two who are not in the know may have said something to him in passing, it is not necessarily true, so she was right to correct him, especially since he was insisting.

Blitzer was a complete asshat that entire interview, right up until the end (not shown in that clip) where he said he hoped help would come soon, “we all see the rising homeless people on the streets...” whereupon. Nancy cut him off to ask him “And have you fed them? We have, Wolf. We have.”

Nancy was right to point it out: Yang's not a negotiator. He's not even credible. And still Wolf tried with the concern routine. He was pissed, and it showed, and it was brilliant. "You don't know what you're talking about." And later, from him, "I *am* compassionate."

Then, when Wolf doubled down his accusation, Nancy turned into my history teacher when I pointed out she was wrong. That "how dare you challenge me" face, it surely brings back old memory. When she referred Andrew Yang as "lovely", oh, that is my grandma when she described her neighbor. When she used the words "lovely" or "adorable", it mean "I don't like her and I don't care about that person." Lovely.

Jews protect their own it seems when wrongdoing is discovered. ABC fired Roseanne over her racist comments due to the fact that a black woman was the boss at the time.
I bet she would've fired Wolf if she was the CNN boss at the time.

Not to mention that the Senate isn't on board with any of this, anyway. And yes, Blitzer absolutely was buying into the Republican framing of the issue.
Think of it this way: Congressional Democrats have identified 100 items at the federal, state, and local level that badly need funding. Of those, Republicans are determined to vote for only 5 of them. If Pelosi agrees on the 5, she doesn't get the other 95. If she refuses to play the game and insists on a real negotiation, she might get as many as 75 of the items.

Pelosi made a point to say "it will be retroactive"
Do you think people who don't have a dime to the name right now care about that? They want something passed NOW. They need money NOW. Nancy is living in an alternate universe and clearly cannot relate to the average American who has been hurt by the economy due to COVID. I read the other day that NY unemployment can be as low as 150 dollars a week - who can live on that? Forget paying rent or other necessities. You can barely buy food for 150 a week if you are a family of 4.
She doesn't care at all about the people - she only cares about her package that will benefit her special interest groups. Most of that money isn't going to "the people" - it's all special interests calling the shots. She's just awful.

R153, nice regurgitation of Republican talking points. If you want something passed NOW, then talk to Mitch McConnell, who has flatly rejected both the White House proposal and the House Democrat proposal.
Pelosi is, in fact, ready to pass something NOW but it has to be sufficient to do the job and it has to cover what is needed. It has nothing at all to do with "special interest groups" and "most of that money" is indeed going to "the people," so basically, you're full of shit.

- Forgiveness of student loan debt.

Pelosi is absolutely right about Blitzer's framing of the question: it's a Republican frame.
Oversimplifying this a bit, what you have is a scenario where House Democrats want 15 things funded; Senate Republicans want 3. If Pelosi gives in and funds those 3 items, it's a total capitulation and she has just handed those Senate Republicans a total victory. Even worse, those other 12 items will never get funded because there is no leverage left to bring Republicans to the bargaining table.
So what Blitzer is [italic]really[/italic] asking is, "Nancy, why don't you just give up those other 12 items and give Republicans exactly what they want?"
Blitzer has been around long enough that he knows how this is supposed to work: the House passes their version; the Senate passes theirs; they meet in conference committee; they negotiate and compromise. So he has no excuse for pulling shit like this and Pelosi has every reason to be pissed at him.

And I love how you completely ignore what is actually in the bill that House Democrats have passed that includes precisely the "aid" that "a lot of people need."
That bill has passed the House, which means that there is one and only one thing standing in the way of getting that aid to the American people: Mitch McConnell.
