Democrats block push to boost small-business aid

Ridgewood NJ, , As the coronavirus pandemic continues to eat away at New Jersey’s economy, with a third straight week of record unemployment claims, our Democrat representatives in Washington continue to obstruct aid at the behest of their liberal leadership. Most recently, Nancy Pelosi has vowed to block $250 billion in aid to struggling small businesses.
“When Nancy Pelosi tells the liberal quartet of Andy Kim, Josh Gottheimer, Tom Malinowski and Mikie Sherrill to jump, they jump out of their shoes, even if it means cheating small businesses during a pandemic,” said NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt. “They all stood by sheepishly as Pelosi held up phase 3 relief to try and sneak through a liberal wish list that included $35 million in funding for a DC opera house! The people of New Jersey, particularly business owners, are suffering, residents are dying, and these four representatives won’t exhibit the courage to stand up for their constituents. Let’s all keep that in mind in November.”
And, it’s worth pointing out that while New Jersey businesses struggle, Andy Kim made time today to join Governor Murphy during the Governor’s daily COVID-19 briefing and politicized it instead of going to work to protect New Jersey families.
