Senate Majority Chief Mitch McConnell blocked Americans from getting critical aid in coronavirus reduction Tuesday. Twice. He blocked votes on $2,000 survival checks when Sen. Chuck Schumer tried to carry the invoice to the ground and once more when Sen. Bernie Sanders tried. Now it seems that he will tie that $2,000 to the poison pills of Trump’s demand for some type of motion to punish tech corporations and “voter fraud.”
Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue are watching all this intently from Georgia, the place they’re preventing for reelection within the Jan. 5 runoff. Their respective Democratic opponents, Raphael Warnock and John Ossoff, are watching too, as a result of this election will decide if People get even sufficient assist in overcoming the pandemic. The 2 Republicans now say they back Trump’s demand for that $2,000. The query at the least considered one of them—Perdue—is refusing to answer is what they’re prepared to do about it. Like inform McConnell to have a standalone vote on the checks. Fats likelihood.
These $2,000 checks are solely taking place if Warnock and Ossoff win. McConnell shouldn’t be going to let that occur. He cares neither concerning the American individuals nor the economic system, and he is not going to do a damned factor to assist. There’s only one solution to cease him: Take his majority away.
