For the wrong reasons, of course. But it’s on them.
The New York Times didn’t know how to report it- rewriting and butchering their headline numerous times.
Let’s be clear about what’s happening right now: We had a bipartisan deal to deliver critical relief to hardworking families until Nancy Pelosi blew it up so she could play politics.
Enough already! We’re in the middle of a national emergency. Drop the partisan demands.

Sending Dow futures plummeting (Fox News). Democrats apparently object to the package also helping businesses, the people who create jobs (Washington Times). From Senator Mitch McConnell: “I want everybody to fully understand if we aren’t able to act tomorrow, it will because of our colleagues on the other side continuing to dither when the country expects us to come together and address this problem” (The Hill). Even Romney is shocked by the Democrats. At least early on, a number of outlets who might normally protect Democrats made it clear which party blocked the bill (Hot Air). From Alexandra DeSanctis: I do not ever want to hear another word attacking Donald Trump’s response to the coronavirus from a single person who defends or excuses Dems blocking this bill tonight (Twitter). From Ben Shapiro: So just to get this straight, the new Democratic objection to the bipartisan bill — Schumer called it bipartisan on Saturday night — is that it helps companies too much. Companies that will be defunct within the month, driving a 30% unemployment rate, without loan packages (Twitter). From Kimberly Strassel: To play politics now is height of irresponsibility. Pelosi owns this. Again, Ds were part of the Senate crafting—were on board. Now caving to progressive wing—again. At peril of economy (Twitter).
NY Times Absolutely Butchers Democrats for Blocking COVID-19 Economic Stimulus — Then Quickly Changes Their Headline
By: Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit, March 22, 2020:
The New York Times butchered Democrats for blocking the COVID-19 Economic Stimulus bill in a stunning headline on Sunday night.
You don’t see this much honesty in The New York Times these days…
Of course, this was not going to stand.
The Times quickly changed their headline..
“Democrats block action on stimulus plan, seeking worker protections”
But that wasn’t good enough so they changed it again.
“Partisan Divide Threatens deal on rescue bill”
And then The New York Times, by the end of the night, tweeted out this…
New Headline: “Emergency Economic Rescue Plan in Limbo as Democrats Block Action”
Senate Democrats blocked action on an emerging deal to prop up the U.S. economy, which has been devastated by the coronavirus. They said the rescue package failed to adequately protect workers or impose strict enough restrictions on bailed-out businesses. https://t.co/bgYOLY06Aj
