Sunday on MSNBC’s Kasie DC, Sen. Richard Blumenthal complained that the coronavirus relief stimulus package has been “fraught with slowness and snafus” and stated that “serious negotiations” are underway on the next package in the upcoming week.
“We were promised that checks would be in the mail or deposited by now, and those payments still, for most the vast majority of Americans, have not been made,” Blumenthal lamented.
“There’s a real possibility of serious negotiations this week involving Senator McConnell, the majority leader, as well as Chuck Schumer, who has been really steadfast and very eager to replenish that small business account, but also meet the hospital and the state and local needs,” he added. “And I think even before a next package, a fourth package, this week we could well see serious and productive negotiations.”
The reason negotiations are necessary is that Dems are exploiting the crisis to push policies that have nothing to do with financial relief for suffering Americans.
