Partisan Squabbles Delay Coronavirus Relief Bill

Partisan Squabbles Delay Coronavirus Relief Bill

(NewsReady.com) – The US economy is reeling under the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Both businesses and workers are desperately waiting for help from the federal government. That help – $1.8 trillion worth – is now stuck in the Senate.

Up until Sunday, it looked as if the bill would pass with bipartisan support. Republicans, Democrats and White House spent the weekend negotiating it in the Senate. However, shortly after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) arrived on the hill, Senate Dems unanimously voted against it.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) says Democrats are now refusing to pass the bill “unless they get to dust off the Green New Deal.” Their demands include tax credits for solar and wind energy, new privileges for unions and tightened airline emission standards. Because in a time of crisis, these issues really matter.

Meanwhile, Democrats argue the current draft lacks accountability on how businesses spend any money they’re given under the plan.

Both sides seem to be digging in for a fight to get their preferred policies included. Meanwhile, the American people just want their government to get the job done. They’re suffering while Capitol Hill bickers — again.

  1. Why aren’t they helping Social Security retirees we paid for our Social Security and taxes lots of taxes all of our lives the Democrats are evil and hurting all of us we need help

  2. Is it true that polosi has enriched herself 90 million dollars in the last 8 years.must be insider trading

  3. DESPICABLE LIBERALS ARE DESTROYING THIS COUNTRY WITH THEIR RAMPANT HATE OF PRESIDENT TRUMP. I PRAY ALL THE TIME THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL REMAIN STRONG AND HEALTHY, LEST WE BECOME SUBJECT TO THE RULE OF THE MORONS ON THE LEFT! CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE THOSE FOOLS HANDLING THIS CRISIS?!
    THE PRESIDENT WORKS FOR NO PAY AND IS WATCHING HIS FORTUNE GO DOWN WITH THAT OF OTHER AMERICANS. AND THE CONGRESS (LONG PAST RETIREMENT AGE) KEEP LINING THEIR POCKETS WITH ALL THAT THEY CAN STEAL WITH THEIR SWEET DEALS. When will we wise up and force these old people out of office with mandatory retirement? (for the record I am over 70)

  4. You see what COMMUNISM does for America it destroys it….. You will have NOTHING
    with Pelosi and her crew of Commie Bandits in the House of Ruins…. They feed there
    pockets while we are fools for paying our TAX DOLLARS to them and they laugh in our faces…. It time for THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION to take place and bring our Country back from Tyranny..

  5. This relief package is supposed to be for the American people who are struggling or will be next week when they don’t have a paycheck. The politician’s aren’t worried about getting us any relief soon because they get paid more money than us regular people who live paycheck to paycheck. Pelosi and her cronies need to be gone …. someone needs to figure out how that can happen quickly before they try to destroy anything else in this country we live in.

  6. What is it going to take for the American people to stand up and drag these despots out of their offices? I personally am for hanging them but I know that will never happen. Prison is the next best option but I suppose I will have to settle for just getting them out of office where they can do no more harm.

    • I agree a million percent, unbeievable. The dems play games while Americans are suffering. Whay would anyone support, let alone vote for such a corrupt party. They are sickening. Don’t yell me they represent us, no way. Fire every swinging one of them and then proseccute them.

  7. Our politicians are NOT better than those they are supposed to be representing. They should NOT HAVE THE RIGHT to vote themselves raises especially when they are spending our paid for Social Security on other projects We need to be ONE for our country and one under God which we were founded upon during this very difficult time. GOD BLESS AMERICAN 😁🇺🇸🇺🇸 And God bless all our people🙏🙏❤️❤️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

    • America and the rest of mankind get on your knees and pray to our Lord Jesus and ask for forgiveness for the sins we have committed or we will feel the wrath of God the Father. ( more plagues to follow the Covid-19 plague and the Locust invasions of Africa, Asia & the Middle East of 2020).

  8. You better worry the dems are going to cheat at the polls. Same way,some how.They need the power and the purse.God help us if they do.

  9. IN THE LONG HISTORY OF THIS COUNTRY I DO NOT BELIEVE WE THE PEOPLE HAVE HAD TO SIT AND WATCH SUCH A DISPLAY OF HATRED FOR THE WINNER IN AN ELECTION BY THE LOSER OR LOSERS OF THE ELECTION. IS THAT BECAUSE TWO OF THE THREE KEY PLAYERS ON THE LOSING SIDE ARE WOMEN AND THE THIRD IS SUSPECT (SHUMMER) EVERYTHING ELSE IS FAIRLY COMMON, BETTER MAN/PERSON WON
    ONLY DIFFERENCE IS GENDER
    I WASN’T WORRIED ABOUT A WOMEN PRESIDENT TILL NOW
    NO WAY HOSEA!

  10. Dennis and Dottie both of your comments are very well said! I hope all Americans remember all of this ridicuous crap when they vote in 2020

  11. It is time for the democrats to admit and accept that they are NOT taking care of the American people and that they LOST the election in 2016 and they are likely to lose the one in 2020 as well! Time for them to swallow that pride and work FOR the American people or get the heck out of the way and let those who WILL do that take care of all these problems. Time for the American people to realize that democrats do NOT work FOR you and are seeking to destroy America as we know it, and vote for people who WILL work for the American people and build up our self-reliance. Time for the globalists to sit down and shut up!

    • Any way to impeach Pelosi and Schumer and others for endangering the country with their power play. Get them out of the way and maybe the rest of the politicians in DC will start to do what they are supposed to be doing take care of the citizens not enrich and empower themselves Get the current bill passed so help gets started to the people then try and sell the crap want to add on its own merits

  12. Quit your dam politics and help the American people. We will remember just who did what, when we go to the polls to vote! Sick and tired of Congress getting paid to do nothing. You haven’t done anything for the last 3 years, except harass the President. I’m sure you’ve wasted at least several billion !
