How does Nancy Pelosi get away with blocking desperately needed aid?

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The GOP balked on money for states and local governments. "This was a debate that was largely about nothing," Politico Playbook declared, accurately. The effect of the debate about nothing was to delay help for those millions of small-business owners and employees who needed it while Pelosi played politics and showed off her ice cream stash. The bill, now expanded to nearly $500 billion, passed yesterday. That was April 23, 16 days after the first letter to Capitol Hill. Why did it take 16 days for Congress to pass money for small-business owners that could have been passed in a small fraction of that time? Because Pelosi stopped it. Pure and simple.
