Washington – Wyoming Congresswoman and House GOP Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) joined “Let’s Talk With Al Harris” on KUGR 1420 in Wyoming this morning and called Speaker Pelosi’s attempts to use the coronavirus crisis to try and enact far-left wing priorities “particularly appalling.” See a transcript of this portion of the interview and listen to the segment that begins at 10:33 in the recording below:
REP. LIZ CHENEY: “There has been some talk, I know Speaker Pelosi has been talking about a fourth package.
“I am really not a fan of the Speaker’s, and I think she’s operating in a way right now that is particularly appalling. What she’s doing is attempting to get into law really dangerous, really radical policies, things like the Green New Deal that would never under other circumstances be agreed to, be adopted.
“She is using this crisis, this unprecedented crisis that this nation is living through, to try to get her socialist, far-left, radical agenda adopted. It is just despicable.
“So when you see her out there talking about a fourth package, she doesn’t even try to hide it. She says straight out, ‘listen, there were things we weren’t able to get done the first time around, so we got to go ahead and do another package.’
“I cannot imagine a more despicable and disgraceful thing for an elected official to be doing than trying to use this absolutely unprecedented crisis in which Americans are dying as a way to get her policies enacted. In fact, in many ways, those very policies that she’s trying so hard to get people to agree to will make it harder for us to recover from this, not easier.
“So, I will not support and I don’t think the majority of the Senate and the House will support the kinds of things that she’s attempting to get done here. I think this is a time where we ought to be focused, together, across party lines on what’s necessary to rescue our economy and rescue the American people from this real tragedy, not looking for ways to get political pet projects passed.
