Mitch McConnell Gives Updated Timeline for COVID Stimulus Bill
Americans certainly aren’t going to like it.
We are pushing toward the ninth month of the global coronavirus pandemic here in the United States, and many Americans are beginning to feel the brunt of the economic burden that these extended lockdowns have provided.
Early in the pandemic, Congress was able to work through a bill that provided some serious economic relief for struggling Americans, provided enhanced unemployment benefits, direct payments of $1,200, and more.
Since then, however, there has been very little movement on any bill providing further assistance, and the subject has been a hot one on Capitol Hill.
Now, with no bill coming miraculously before election day, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has a grim outlook on the timeframe for more fiscal help.
Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he doesn’t anticipate a coronavirus stimulus package until “right at the beginning” of 2021.
McConnell, R-Ky., told radio host Hugh Hewitt that the legislation would be targeted “particularly at small businesses that are struggling, and hospitals that are now dealing with the second wave of the coronavirus, and, of course, the challenges for education, both K-12 and college.”
Meanwhile, President Trump claimed a deal would be reached “immediately” after Election Day. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said she expects relief “certainly will have something [done] at the start of the new presidency.”
The issue is one that has resonated with an astonishing number of voters, many of whom have lost their jobs on account of the slowing economy.
