U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney continued to blast Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi regarding the proposed coronavirus stimulus package this week, this time on a Cheyenne talk radio station.
On Thursday, Cheney was interviewed on KFBC Radio about the stimulus package, pointing blame at Pelosi for being the reason it has stalled in recent weeks.
“The Speaker, at every opportunity, has chosen the partisan approach over actually getting something done, which is one of the biggest reasons why we’ve got to make sure she’s not Speaker for very much longer,” Cheney told host Reece Monaco.
Monaco mentioned President Donald Trump’s recent comments about how he would sign a bill that rushed $1,200 stimulus checks for Americans who make under a certain amount, asking Cheney if she thought that should be done or if the president should wait until after the election.
Cheney hoped it would happen sooner rather than later, adding she believed Pelosi was facing pressure from other House Democrats who “are in vulnerable seats.”
“So, I am hopeful that the combination of putting additional pressure on Speaker Pelosi, being able to pull out some of the discrete standalone kinds of assistance programs people need and the work, of course, of Leader McConnell over on the Senate side, that we will be able to get something moving, I hope,” she said.
