There is still over $130+ billion available in the Paycheck Protection Program for businesses to use, but Speaker Pelosi is prioritizing passing marijuana legislation this week. We should be focused on supporting our workers & businesses right now – it is time to reopen the #PPP. https://twitter.com/stevescalise/status/1333517428794470405
Let me get this straight:
Nancy Pelosi is blocking a bill to deliver unused Paycheck Protection Program funds to workers and small businesses.
But she managed to find time for a vote on pot legislation this week.
RT to tell Dems to quit blocking aid for Americans in need NOW!
If you ever doubted that Every Vote Counts, look to #IA2 where Republican candidate Mariannette Miller-Meeks won by 6 votes!
Dr. @millermeeks will be an outstanding Member of Congress.
Senate Democrats have blocked coronavirus aid and House Democrats have blocked Republican efforts to re-open the Paycheck Protection Program 40 times.
Once again, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to the voters of #ia02!
I will never quit fighting for you and your opportunity at the American Dream!
Let’s get to work! #ia02 https://twitter.com/iowasos/status/1333519869212553219
The State Canvassing Board has officially certified the results of the 2020 general election. We had record turnout of more than 1.7 million voters & 76% participation. The official result in #IA02 is @millermeeks 196,964 to @RitaHartIA 196,958. 6 vote difference. #BeAVoter

On this day, 65 years ago, Rosa Parks helped to change our country for the better by refusing to move to the back of a city bus. May her legacy live on through all of us as we stand up for justice! #RosaParksDay
Promising #COVID19 vaccine news means there is light at the end of the tunnel, so we must stay vigilant in the coming months.

Together, we will get through this!
Whether he’s in his office in D.C., his farm in Iowa, or teleworking due to #COVID19, @ChuckGrassley never stops working for Iowans. Welcome back to the Senate!
Conference Chairman @SenJohnBarrasso:
What is the House of Representatives doing this week?
I looked into it.
It's the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment Act.
That is today's priority in the *incredibly shrinking* Nancy Pelosi-run House of Representatives.
Let's check in on Nancy Pelosi's plans for the week:
✓ Legalize marijuana
✓ Ban tiger ownership
✓ Ban lion ownership
.... does she know there's a global pandemic...?
Instead, Democrat leadership brought the House back this week to vote on legislation to legalize marijuana and prevent lions and tigers from being pets. These are the Democrats’ priorities right now.
As #SmallBusinesses are hurting and closing around the country— leaving American workers without paychecks, Speaker Pelosi decides to bring these items to the floor this week.
It’s beyond time to allow these small businesses access to remaining #PPP funds! #FL15
The Paycheck Protection Program was, and can still be, a lifeline for small businesses struggling from the impacts of COVID-19. Speaker Pelosi should put her marijuana and tiger-ban bills on hold & focus on addressing the real needs of Americans.
The Paycheck Protection Program was a bipartisan airlift that saved 300K jobs in NE, which led the US in per capita #PPP loans approved. Like many Nebraskans, I'm open to further #COVIDー19 relief if it remains focused on helping those in need, not extraneous political priorities
While Arkansans and Americans suffer, @HouseGOP is working to build a #COVID19 relief package.
Instead of working with us to extend the #bipartisan Paycheck Protection Program, @SpeakerPelosi is putting a bill to legalize #marijuana on the House Floor for a vote.
