Senate Democrats Block Stimulus Package for China Coronavirus

As the China coronavirus pandemic accelerates across the nation, Congress is working on a massive stimulus relief bill to help people deal with the economic consequences of businesses forced to close.

Last night, Senate Democrats blocked the $1.8 trillion bill.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) explained his problem with the bill.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) slammed the Democrats.

The New York Times repeatedly revised the news story headline over Democrats blocking the stimulus package bill.

President Trump called the New York Times out saying they changed the headline “to satisfy the Radical Left.”

The impact of the coronavirus hit close to home in the U.S. Senate.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) was the first Senator to test positive for the coronavirus but is asymptomatic at this point.

Paul is in a higher risk category since part of his lung was removed following an assault by his neighbor.

In addition, Utah Republican Senators Mitt Romney and Mike Lee are self-quarantined.

President Trump wished Senator Paul well wishes on social media.

Democrats are playing politics at the worst possible time.

Senators are still negotiating over the stimulus relief bill and another vote is expected today.
