Senators Debate Virus Relief Package

Senators Debate Virus Relief Package

“While workers lose their jobs, businesses close their doors, Republican senators are playing political stunts with vitally needed economic relief. And the games continue today. Once again, the Republican majority will bring up a bill designed to fail — their partisan, emaciated Covid relief bill, so-called Covid relief bill. The bill we’re voting on today has already failed in the Senate, didn’t get a Democratic vote. And we already know it lacks the votes, and why — because it leaves so many Americans behind.” “Democrat leaders have held additional Covid relief hostage. Instead of working with Republicans to arrive at a compromise bill that both parties can support, and they can make it through both houses of Congress, Democrats have insisted that it’s their way or the highway. Either Republicans agree to a bloated multi-trillion dollar piece of legislation filled with noncoronavirus-related measures.” “If we pass a bill of the magnitude suggested by Speaker Pelosi, we have a chance of recovering by the end of 2021. If we don’t, the chairman of the Federal Reserve warns us, and other economists as well, that we’re going to slump into an even worse recession, even more unemployment, even more business is failing. That appears to be what Senator McConnell is prepared to accept, but we’re not.”
