Virginia Beach, VA – On Friday, May 15th, House Democrats passed Pelosi’s HEROES Act (HR 6800), which outlines almost $3 trillion more in federal spending. Proposed in the name of COVID aid, the bill’s true impact is beyond the scope of consequences resulting from the pandemic. In reality, it is an attempt by Democrats to use this pandemic as a means to their own ends.
Elaine Luria voted “nay” on the bill.
Taylor commented: “Let’s not take Luria’s ‘nay’ vote as a sign that she is a moderate who is watching out for the hardworking American or small business owner. After Pelosi secured enough ‘yea’ votes to pass her bill, she gave her pawns – Luria and other Democrats in competitive, more red districts – a pass. While Elaine voted ‘nay’, that does NOT mean it was done so for any justifiable reason. She was a ‘nay’ for one reason and one reason only – her handler Nancy Pelosi allowed her to do so.”
Taylor continued: “This bill was hastily written behind closed doors, heard by zero Congressional committees, and decided via proxy voting — the epitome of capitalizing on the global crisis for political gain. Elaine Luria votes with her caucus 90% of the time and even though she broke with her party this time, it’s clear that she only did this with the permission of her caucus chair, Nancy Pelosi.”
