(RightWing.org) – The Senate returned to Capitol Hill on September 8 and immediately got to work on another relief package for the American people. Shortly after returning, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) gave an update on the COVID-19 response bill.
McConnell said Senate Republicans were introducing a targeted coronavirus relief bill that’s focused on some of the most urgent problems, including “healthcare, education, and economic issues.” The majority leader explained he is setting up a vote for this week, to get the process moving.
Republicans and Democrats have big differences, but they should not stop us from agreeing where we can and making law to help Americans through this crisis. Working families cannot suffer more because Democrats think their pain helps them politically. The Senate is going to vote. pic.twitter.com/HzbPxvRe9I

Democratic leaders slammed the GOP for their effort to help the American people. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) released a statement saying the bill isn’t going to go anywhere. And as Democrats continue to bicker with the GOP, Americans are suffering.
