Pelosi Rules Out Stand-Alone Coronavirus Aid for Airlines
Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters on Thursday that she would not agree to a stand-alone aid package for airlines unless there was a “bigger” bill to help struggling Americans.
“I have been very open to having a single, stand-alone bill for the airlines or part of a bigger bill. But there is no stand-alone bill without a bigger bill.” Reporter: “You would not move forward at all on a stand-alone airline bill?” “If we don’t have a guarantee that we’re going to be helping our state and local employees, that we’re not going to be able to crush the virus. We’ve been working very hard on language because if you don’t have the language, you’re just giving them a blank check to do what they have done, which is to ignore crushing the virus.”
