Pelosi declares ‘Let them eat cake’ as she tears up coronavirus relief bill
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was caught snickering and saying, “Let them eat cake!” as she tore up the coronavirus relief bill at Capitol Hill today.
She wore a 18th Century French Bourbon dress for the occasion.
The Senate’s second attempt to advance a massive $2 trillion bill to provide economic relief amid the COVID-19 pandemic failed Monday afternoon, demonstrating an inability to strike a bipartisan agreement on the Coronavirus Relief Aid Package (CRAP) bill.
The vote failed 49-46, falling well short of the 60 votes needed to advance to debate on the bill, which represents the third phase of congressional aid to respond to the crisis.
