Instead of prioritizing aid for small businesses or aid for American workers or reopening schools or battling the pandemic, Democrats are up in the clouds.
NEW: Hoyer says the marijuana vote will happen Friday.

REMINDER: Back in September, Hoyer said, “I’m a supporter of the MORE Act, BUT we’ve got to get the CR and COVID-19 done because they’re absolutely critical to the welfare of our country.”
Inhale this, now in December, Democrats are voting on pot instead of pandemic aid.
Bottom Line: It strains credulity that Democrats are willing to go into the holidays with a straight face telling their constituents that they prioritized weed over pandemic relief.
It is a tale of dueling priorities:
President Trump’s leadership throughout the coronavirus pandemic has resulted in both Pfizer and Moderna’s coronavirus vaccines slated to be administered to the American people in a matter of weeks, but Nancy Pelosi is concerned about lions, tigers, and pot … oh my.
House returns today at 2pm for brief post-Thanksgiving pro forma session but no votes will take place until Wed. Mbrs will vote this week on several bills including banning private ownership of lions & tigers,promoting the legacies of Gandhi & MLK Jr & legalizing marijuana.@cspan

The Associated Press reports, “Pelosi seems to have overplayed her hand as she held out for $2 trillion-plus right up until the election. The results of the election, which saw Democrats lose seats in the House, appear to have significantly undercut her position.”
Reminder: Senate Democrats have blocked coronavirus aid and House Democrats have blocked Republican efforts to re-open the Paycheck Protection Program 40 times.
While Democrats continue to play political games to the detriment of the American people, President Trump and his administration are laser-focused on confronting the coronavirus pandemic and delivering a vaccine in record time.
