Every Senate Democrat Just Voted To Block A 300 Billion Coronavirus Relief Package


Of course, the Democrats put politics first before the well-being of the American people.

Republicans 300 billion relief bill for Americans who have suffered from financial hardships due to the Coronavirus has been rejected by every Democrat in the Senate.

Sen. Mitch McConnell said that the Democrat’s goal is clear they want “no help for American families before the election.

Included in the relief package was also unemployment payments, funding for small businesses, schools, and universities



Fox News reported the story and contributed with these details:

Republicans’ $300 billion coronavirus relief legislation failed to clear a procedural hurdle Thursday in the Senate, effectively killing the legislation that GOP leadership touted as an important economic lifeline and Democrats decried as a purely partisan and paltry effort.

The legislation needed 60 votes to advance but came up short: 52-47. All Republicans voted “yes” except for Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who joined with all Democrats present who voted “no.”

The failure in the Senate puts the chances of a new round of coronavirus relief in limbo as the country continues to reel from the health crisis and economic fallout that has killed about 190,000 Americans and left millions out of work.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., devised the plan with Republicans, though he’d need at least seven Democrats to join him if the legislation was ever intended to clear the 60-vote threshold.

McConnell blamed the bill’s failure on Democrats and accused them of not wanting to deliver a bipartisan bill to President Trump before the election on Nov. 3.

Senators Mitch McConnell and Marco Rubio both believe Democrats will refuse to help the American people before the election.

They are right!

Democrats are really using a pandemic as a political weapon to gain more votes.

This is truly sickening

USA Today didn’t stay silent and added this to the story:

Senate Democrats blocked a $300 billion COVID-19 stimulus bill Thursday, dampening the prospects Congress will pass much-needed financial relief for Americans weathering the coronavirus pandemic ahead of the November election.

The bill was defeated in a 52-47 vote, not meeting the 60 needed to break the Democratic filibuster, a mechanism requiring three-fifths of the chamber to agree to end the debate and allow a final vote. One Republican, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., voted with Democrats in opposing the bill.

After the chamber failed to move forward, senators voiced skepticism that any movement would be made on a relief package before the election.

“Along with the pandemic COVID-19, we have a pandemic of politics,” said Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., explaining that the path forward appeared bleak. “It’s a sort of a dead end street, and very unfortunate, but it is what it is.”

The continued impasse between Republicans and Democrats, and the trillions of dollars that separates them, leaves little chance a coronavirus stimulus bill will pass Congress before the November election, even while lawmakers in both parties argue there is still hope for a bipartisan compromise and Thursday’s vote would force both sides back to the table. Lawmakers have only weeks left in session before the election and need to also pass a series of spending bills to avert a government shutdown at the end of the month.
