Nancy Pelosi has a dirty secret, and she is hoping that Americans won’t find out. As the Democrats rant and rave that the president is hurting American families by denying them pay, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, President Donald Trump tried to pay the federal workers amidst the shutdown, and it was none other than the Speaker who made sure that didn’t happen. Don’t miss this.

It’s time that Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats admit that they are the ones making sure American workers don’t get paid. There is now hardcore evidence that it’s the Speaker of the House and her Democratic rat colleagues who have betrayed the Federal workers they claim to care so much about.

Enter Rep. Dan Crenshaw from Texas, who many may remember from his dust-up on Saturday Night Live with Pete Davidson. The 34-year-old former Navy Seal who lost an eye while serving bravely in Afghanistan just blew the lid on Pelosi’s dirty secret.

“Rising GOP star Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) decided to share a government shutdown story the media had to ignore. Mostly because they were too busy harassing and doxing teenagers and their families,” The Resurgent reported.

“Big deal that never got reported: Last week, House GOP voted to pay federal employees their 1st paycheck of 2019, despite shutdown. Only 6 Dems voted with us. It failed. Dem priority is not paying workers or opening gov’t. It is opposing Trump,” Crenshaw tweeted.

“So all of the heartfelt hand wringing over the federal employees who have been affected by the shutdown by Leader Pelosi and others is complete hogwash. They had the opportunity to pay federal workers who are obligated to be on the job and voted it down,” The Resurgent added. That vote happened on January 17th, but it’s nowhere to be found in any mainstream media report.

And as far as making concessions, it’s President Trump who has reached out to Pelosi, while the Speaker just flat-out refuses to even sit down at the bargaining table. The president tried last Saturday, offering some concessions on illegal immigrants. Even before Trump had finished his statement, Pelosi shot it down, reported the Chicago Tribune. 

“Trump proposed offering a reprieve on his attempts to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and temporary protected status (TPS) for immigrants from some Latin American and African nations, in exchange for building hundreds of miles of barriers on the southern U.S. border and hiring thousands of new law enforcement agents to be deployed there,” the Washington Post reported.

At that point, the 78-year-old Speaker should have called the president and at least proposed a meeting to discuss his proposal. She is well aware that Trump is a deal-maker and his offer was an open invitation for the House Leader to come and negotiate. Trump has never said it’s his way or the highway, only that he is not willing to approve anything that does not include funding for the border wall.

Pelosi could follow up her words with actions. Isn’t she always crying about the “DACA kids?” Well, she could have made a counter offer to Trump’s proposal and if it wasn’t complete amnesty for all illegals we are pretty sure the president would seriously consider it.

And what is her excuse for not coming back to the bargaining table? Both Pelosi and Chuck Schumer claim Trump is “throwing a temper tantrum.” That’s it. They have no real reason not to sit down and make a deal. And now that we know it was Pelosi’s order that the Democrats vote “NO” on restoring pay to the Federal workers, all Americans should be livid and demand Pelosi stop this shutdown.

Representative Crenshaw has been calling for bi-partisan action to end the stalemate on the Continuing Resolution to fund the government. But that’s not what Pelosi wants. The Democratic brain-trust thinks they will score political points against Trump if they can keep the shutdown going on and on. Pelosi believes it will ruin the president’s chances in the 2020 election. She could care less about American workers.

All Americans have a right to know it was the Democrats who just denied pay to those Federal workers. It would not have stopped the shutdown, but it would take the horrible sting out of it. Nancy Pelosi is hoping that no one will find out. She couldn’t cry about poor Americans unable to buy food and pay rent.

Let’s make sure the Speaker doesn’t get her way. Make sure all your family and friends get this important information. Let’s help President Trump. With enough Americans calling Pelosi out on her lies, she will have no choice but to fund the wall and end the shutdown.
