So, why is Pelosi now postponing a vote to give people relief money?
This is HER bill that Republicans and Democrats have compromised on. Now she's saying she's not so sure she wants it. The House was in session for a few minutes and then left. House Democrats could've voted for the bill, and your checks would've been sent out. But tgey didn't. They want to prolong the suffering. If this isn't Pelosi playing politics, what is it?

For one, the bill as the Republicans had it made no stipulation on shareholder buy backs and CEO bonus payouts in the massive bill, they wanted to make sure companies could not do this with the money from the bill........................NOTICE THIS IS NOT REPORTED BY THE RIGHT WING PUNDITS, they only report on an abortion part THAT WAS NEVER IN THE BILL!!!!!!!!
Plus people like Graham of S. Carolina said "those filing for unemployment would get fat and lazy and not go after employment again.............ya...........that's what the Senator of S. Carolina think of the American worker.

Senate has not voted either.
— “GOP senators also threatened to delay the legislation over a proposed increase to unemployment insurance. “
— House of Representatives is not in session this week. If anyone objects to a “unanimous proclamation” (just 1 Representative could stop it) then the full House must take a voice vote.
— so even if the House passed the bill, the Senate would have to vote. And Republican Senators have threatened to delay it.

She's trying to get the House votes together. Not everyone is happy with the Senate bill. Note that the Senate hasn't passed the legislation yet.
Also, the House is in recess. She's trying to find a constitutional way to get the bill passed without having all the lawmakers return to Washington, DC.
Pelosi apparently prefers getting the vote done quickly by unanimous consent. Republican House Minority Leader McCarthy prefers a voice vote.
Why is she being criticized for doing exactly what she is supposed to be doing?

She needs to be tarred and feathered and ran out of DC on a rail. Schumer too.

Leverage and an attempt to control the message. She also needed a new play as her continued refusals to play ball were backfiring and making it harder for her to get the pork she wants.

I hope she is postponing it because she doesn't have enough votes to pass it with all of the pork and government expansion. I'm afraid it's just the opposite.

Why did the House adjourn today after less than two minutes?

Y'all really trying to get your hands on that socialism. The bill is currently being held up in the Senate anyway, by Lindsey Graham, Tim Scott, Ben Sasse, and Rick Scott. None of these are Democrats. House Democrats can not vote on a Senate bill that has not yet made it out of the Senate.
