Pelosi says Mnuchin caved on accepting oversight: 'A $500 billion slush fund was really insulting'

Published 5 mins ago on March 24, 2020
By David Edwards

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Tuesday revealed that Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin had agree to oversight of a $500 billion relief “slush fund” for businesses.

During an interview on CNBC, Pelosi suggested that Democrats and the White House could agree to a coronavirus relief bill within hours.

“I can say we’re all receptive to getting something done we all know that everybody doesn’t write their own bill, that it’s a series of compromises, and that we think the bill has moved sufficiently to the side of workers,” she explained to CNBC host Jim Cramer.

“This isn’t a conversation with workers and not with the airlines or other industries, hospitality, parking, you name it, restaurants, you go down the list,” she added. “Trying to address their problem. So it is not a one-sided conversation on our part. However, things like a $500 billion slush fund was really insulting.”

8. For an unanswerable administration that doesn't mean anything. Trump will hide everything and

... even when sued wont give it up.

That's been his MO ... this makes him 500 billion dollars richer.

The house needs to set not only oversight but CONTROL ... just not oversight
