Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is prepared to end the impasse on Capitol Hill.

However, his solution leaves much to be desired for many congressional Republicans. (Fox News)


“A number of my members think there were considerable shortcomings in the House bill. My counsel to them it is to gag and vote for it anyway,”  McConnell said Tuesday after lunching with his fellow Republicans.

The Senate will take up the House bill beginning Tuesday and then move immediately to crafting bigger legislation to stimulate the economy that will need 60 votes to pass the upper chamber.

McConnell said the Senate won’t recess until another bill is passed.

“We’re going to move here in warp speed for the Senate, which almost never does anything quickly,” McConnell said.

McConnell reiterated that the Senate is committed to helping all 320 million Americans get through this pandemic as easily as possible.

Does this bill that Mr. McConnell has asked his colleagues to endorse contain the abortion language?

It should include the Hyde amendment which prohibits the use of tax dollars for abortions. This has been used since the SCOTUS changed the Constitution essentially granting permission to kill children.

You are correct and if this Bill has all of the Pork that Piglosi tried to push through, then it should be soundly defeated. The President has already declared a State Of Emergency due to the virus and that gives him the authority he needs to spend whatever he needs to get us through this trying time. Mitch has got to go! Replace him with a real Conservative!

Not all of that money has been spent, yet, if the situation ended tomorrow, the remaining funds do not go back to the treasury. Pelosi’s additional funds are to be considered already theirs and to be used for special political programs of the liberal kind…. a bridge to nowhere, an airport where one isn’t needed, planned parenthood, overseas travels, etc.

the democrats are all about power… they will fight Donald Trump the whole way. and do ANYTHING TO TAKE THE POWER away from a man who is trying his level best to better our country.. the pockets are very deep for the democrats and they have a system that keeps them in money and power and they are not going to give up easily… the American people will suffer their wrath first.

God gave us Donald J. Trump because even he can’t stand the Demoncraps. If we’re going to pray then pray for them to be thrown out of office and remain out for 100 years.

We wouldn’t have the virus here if it wasn’t for the DamnOCrat that “Rescued” over 1,700 Americans from China! AFTER Trump forbid it! Some Dem in the government decided to ignore TRumps order and bring them back, without quarintening them.

Time to give it a rest with the “look over here” deflections, Cheryl! The weak Mr. Obama would have run out of the White House screaming if he had faced even a fraction of the blockades and hate-prompted temper tantrums by the Republicans, that our great President has faced with the vacuous, hysterical, petulant liberal Democrats!! And if you can’t see that, you’ve been asleep at the wheel the past few years!
