Democrats Unanimously Reject $300 Billion Coronavirus Relief Bill

The $300 billion coronavirus relief bill failed to pass in the Senate on Thursday, most likely squandering any chance of additional coronavirus relief before the November election. The legislation needed 60 votes to advance, the final tally being: 52-47. Every Republican voted “yes” except for Senator Paul Rand who joined with the Democrats who unanimously voted in opposition to the bill.

The proposed bill included a second round of the Paycheck Protection Program to small businesses and an extra $300 a week in unemployment benefits through December 27.

In a report from Fox News:

But the bill contained two things that Democrats panned as “poison pills:” McConnell’s liability protection plan that would limit lawsuits against businesses and schools from people who contract COVID-19 on their premises and at least $5 billion for school choice initiatives to help parents fund private schooling.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., blasted the skinny bill as “emaciated” and said he hopes bipartisan talks could resume. He said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows “may be forced to return to the table” to strike deal with Democrats because the coronavirus is the issue Americans care most about during this election year.

The White House and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Schumer, D-N.Y., had been in talks this summer, but they haven’t been able to reach a deal. President Trump accused Democrats of being unwilling to give him a win before the presidential election, whereas Democrats have accused the White House of not understanding the gravity of the crisis as they demand a giant spending package.

Throughout battling the coronavirus pandemic Congress has been able to pass four bipartisan bills to provide much-needed relief to Americans. However, Democrats now are refusing to settle for any legislation less than $3 trillion.

The Democrat Party actually are the enemy of all that is good in The United States of America. They want to heart the American Citizens just so they can get what they want and what they want is all that is bad for all Americans. Like Socialism that just like Venezuela socialism is what killed a one time very wealthy Country. That is what these evil Democrats want for our great Nation.

The communists, nazis and muslims are the murderers, liars and terrorists who try to destroy the US and the whole world. They must be defeated.
Nazis lost their power after 5 years, after 70 years, but there are still enclaves like Venezuela, Cuba.
Now you have in Europe still countries like Sweden, Portugal, Spain, Italy Belgium,
Germany, France and even Britain that are “socicalists” or “liberals”(the euphemism of communism) and now the new evil islam

This is exactly how you turn a country into a Socialist society, buy giving handouts . The American people Need to be working …. people have got to defy the idiotic orders of their Governors and city and state officials and “ Open up your business” go back to working in your companies . I feel that people really need the money and the help, but can’t get dependent on the money.
