She’s trying to change the narrative.

Recently on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) claimed “much more than” the initial $400 million for a vote-by-mail push is going to be demanded in the next coronavirus stimulus bill to allow “every person registered to vote” to receive a ballot in the mail.

According to Breitbart, after being asked about President Trump not favoring bailout funding for the post office, Pelosi replied, “The post office has over 90 percent favorability among the American people. They depend on the post office as a public institution. Seniors now are getting — they have always been getting their medicine by mail for a long time now and now even more urgently. People are buying things that are telemarketing and the rest, and they’re being delivered by the post office. So at this time, any time, it’s a bad idea. It’s what they’re about, privatization, privatization, privatization. Let someone else go make money off someone that should be a public service for the American people. We will have to have that fight. We tried to get funding for the post office in the CARES one bill. We had some money in a bipartisan way, but the president I understand personally rejected it.”

Pelosi then said, “Let me tell you another reason he might be against it. We have to save the lives and livelihood of the American people. We also have to save our liberty, the life of our democracy. Voting by mail is central to this in any event, but at the time of the coronavirus, very essential. We had $400 million in CARES one. We have to have much more than that in CARES two so people can vote by mail.

Adding, “When the Supreme Court acting like party hacks said that the state of Wisconsin had to vote on that day and limited the importance of voting by mail, they were doing a Republican agenda, but the fact is is that having those people vote at that time was as if we invited them all to the Mardi Gras, probably caused more infections. People were standing in long for a very long time, keeping social distancing but nonetheless having to be out when they should be home. This issue of vote-by-mail and also saying every person registered to vote should receive a ballot and that we should have same-day registration for those who have not registered to vote. Opening the process, this is what our country is about, the vote, the sacred right to vote. I’m a former state chair of the party, and our purpose was always to remove obstacles for participation, whether they were Democrats, Republicans, independents, or whatever they were.”

  1. What you have really tried to do is turn us into a socialist country. Everyone can’t be bailed out. Get people back to work and it won’t be necessary. Or give the postal service the money you spent on your freezer, ice cream and chocolates. that should be plenty to get them out of trouble.

  2. This former democrat says no to vote by mail. It is a slap in the face to hard working Americans.
    I also say no to Pelousy.

  3. Nancy has absolutely NO CLUE… Most people’s Medication comes by AMAZON or UPS not the Post Office, The Post Office has been fading away for years now. Most people do there communications by Emails so why revamp something that is going to be Obsolete soon in the future! Computers have taken the Place of Stamps!! We DO NOT NEED MAIL IN VOTING BECAUSE IT WILL ONLY BENEFIT NANCY AND HER CRIMINAL BASE!!

  4. There is no reason for mass mail in voting, nor for sane day registration. The whole intent of Nancy’s agenda is to remove the safeguards put there to prevent fraudulent voting. This prevalence of fraud is exasperated by drivers licenses for illegals, states where providing an ID to vote is not required, and now the California ballot harvesting process. California wont even share from the licence bureau to their Secretary of State that handles voting, a list of illegals with licences so that they can be removed from the voter roles in case they registered “by accident” when getting a license. How bogus is that?
    New York and New Jersey are now letting illegals get licences, Virginia will probably do the same. Pathetic that the rights of real citizens keep getting diminished by these Dem attempts to keep themselves in power and control.

  5. As long as she is at the helm and has her little power hammer this country is in big trouble. She is even worse the Bernie Sanders, at least he says he is a Communist. She tries to hide it because she is a Catholic and Prayerful, I wounder how she handle her “Confessions”?

    Needless to say, I have a lot of problems with her, antics, power hunger, her misleading or skewed statements, and out right lies. I wonder why the Media does not call her out, or why they back off when she pushes back.

  6. How are you going to assure that only citizens use the vote by mail scheme? Only US citizens are allowed to vote. How will know that people won’t sell the ballots they receive in the mail. How do you know that copies of the mail in ballots won’t be made in order to let Illegal people to vote. They could be passed around like party favors. In past elections with all precautions in place and people voting in person there have been counties and precincts turning more ballots than there were people in their areas.

  7. Polosi , no matter how you want to spin the way we vote , for longer then you are even on this planet , VOTING was always in person . You & your MINIONS want voting for everyone including ILLEGALS , NOT GOING TO HAPPEN . Only U.S. BORN CITIZENS HAVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE , Any NOT legal DOES NOT & WILL NOT have any right to a ballot to vote. ID should always be required to show Everytime a person votes.

  8. If you get lucky & succeed on the mail in voting , I will sue the government for taking my way of VOTING away from me. I vote in person Only. You , barack & anyone else that agrees with you on this issue , CAN KISS MY ASS . Move out of the country , Your UNAMERICAN & a traitor .

    • SIMPLY INTRODUCE A BILL IN THE HOUSE TO “IMPEACH” AND REMOVE THIS ALCOHOLIC, BRAIN DAMAGED WITCH FROM CONGRESS
      ! SHE IS OBVIOUSLY MENTALLY DERANGED! INTRODUCE THE BILL AND WATCH HER GO TOTALLY INSANE! “NO GUTS, NO GLORY”!!
      POLOSI IS A SOL ALINSKI COMMUNIST JUST LIKE THE OBAMAS, CLINTONS, BRANNON, HOLDER, ET AL.

  9. Where do all “Mail-in ballots” cross paths? USPS mail sort centers where there is a restriction for personnel to enter, run by Public Union members, dependent on Dems for a bailout. USPS is very much ‘Agency’ like.
    Check the 2018 Agency bi-annual Agency reviews concerning the Mail Sort Centers and Special Ballot handling.
    Then you will understand how to “Weaponize” mail-in ballots.
