Republicans Fight to Protect Businesses

(NewsReady.com) – Everyone’s suffering as the coronavirus devastates the US economy. That’s why Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is pushing for legislation to protect businesses from COVID-19-related lawsuits as states reopen. However, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) of the Senate Judiciary Committee is pushing back.

Republicans argue businesses could face a massive influx of lawsuits from employees and customers alike in the coming weeks and months. With COVID-19 still spreading, companies could face litigation over claims that people became infected while doing business with them.

GOP officials like McConnell want to ensure economic contributors are protected from unnecessary disruption as America gets back on track.

Dems like Senator Whitehouse disagree. They think if federal guidelines were clearer, then additional protections against coronavirus-related lawsuits wouldn’t be required. President Donald Trump has issued numerous recommendations to inform the states on how to safely rebuild their severely-damage economies.

  1. We need a major push across the entire country for term limits. If a candidate won’t support term limits they shouldn’t get a vote. This is our country. The Dems are looking to destroy the economy bin order to hurt Trumps the election chances and all these free give aways are how they control the masses and encourage people to be dependent not independent

    Wake up people before it’s too late.

    I’m a NYer. Governor Cuomo been a fool for years. Now he’s looking good from the virus but I want to warn all Americans. He has ruined and bankrupted NYS. He’s an ultra liberal and believes in freebies not working to earn.

    Believe me when I say it. Our taxes are off the charts and he’s spending ( other than the virus) like a fool.

  2. These responses are the most idiotic statements I have ever read!!! Who is in office now; who has tanked our economy; who wouldn’t even listen to scientists about a coming pandemic and ignored it?? We lead the entire world in COVID cases and deaths. So much for our great Republican Party 👎 Thanks to the Democrats who gave the citizens a stimulus check and want more for the PEOPLE of this now defunct country under your prez Trump. I don’t want anything to do with anyone who supports this lying racist idiot who only likes to line his pockets with money for himself and to hell with the good decent struggling people of the United States. Now China leads the world and we are the May be left with any allies whatsoever thanks to this greedy self-serving Scrooge!! Bah humbug 👎

  3. I totally agree with term limits for everyone who serves on any board or political office.May I make one correction to a previous message, however, Senators serve for 6 years and members of the House of Representatives serve for 2 so, technically, they could be re-elected 2 additional times adding up to 6 years.

  4. Yep, I’m with you. The Dems are out to sell this country if they haven’t already to the Gates Foundation, Globalist and the a like.
    They are all evil 😡

    • We have de facto term limits if people would use them. They are called the vote. Until we use them a few times by voting out every Congressperson after one term, they won’t take us seriously. Then we can tell them they get two terms (four terms for Senators, since they only serve two per term) if we have an amendment stating that. That should either force the issue, of give us a long time with single-term officials, as long as the people stick to the plan.

  5. Democrats!!! Everything they touch, they destroy or Ruin! Need to get rid of every one, one by one!

    • Democrats want rampant law suits because that will keep there follow lawyers in business. Also, democrats are all about power and control.
