BEASTMODE: Kennedy Says Democrats Blocking Stimulus Decided to ‘Double Down on Stupid’

BEASTMODE: Kennedy Says Democrats Blocking Stimulus Decided to ‘Double Down on Stupid’

"Instead of taking that legislation - urgent, necessary legislation - and passing it quickly, Democrats have now made a decision to allow Speaker Pelosi to block it through proxies here in the Senate so that she can rewrite the bill with a ton of crap that has absolutely nothing to do with the public health emergency that we face at this moment", Sasse stated in a speech on the Senate floor Monday night.

The proposal comes after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blamed Democrats for delaying progress on a response bill. "Democrats won't let us fund hospitals or save small businesses unless they get to dust off the Green New Deal".

Democrats on Capitol Hill have now twice-rejected an economic stimulus packaged aimed at aiding Americans and businesses hurt by the coronavirus shutdown measures, as Republicans claim that their colleagues on the other side are attempting to cram a wish list of unrelated demands into the bill. The Democrats want the Virus to win? Asked about that, Trump responded to reporters, "I'll be the oversight".

Bailout funds aside, Trump has a conflict because following the advice of scientists and public health experts to restrict travel hurts his private business, while "lifting the guidelines will translate into a horrifying number of American deaths", Axios notes.

The package also proposes a one-time rebate of about $1,200 (£1,032) per person, or $3,000 (£2,580) for a family of four, as well as extended unemployment benefits.

McConnell argued that Democrats were turning the bill into a "left-wing episode of Supermarket Sweep". House Democratic aides cautioned the final bill could change.

While tensions between McConnell and Schumer are high, Mnuchin has been an active participant in the negotiations, talking and meeting with Democrats all day Sunday and into the early Monday morning hours. And what does Speaker Pelosi try to do?

Pelosi's move to release this bill could be a strategic effort to increase pressure on the Senate to reach a deal.

But if the House charts its own course on a competing piece of legislation, it could take even longer to arrive at a bipartisan consensus that can pass both chambers and get signed into law.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., previously announced that he would not reconvene lawmakers back in Washington until there was critical legislation to vote for in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The legislation aims to flood the economy with money, from individuals to small businesses to large industries amid a wave of layoffs and a sharp contraction in consumer spending.

The bill would steer payments of $1,200 to most adults and include $500 for each child. "We must be bold and forward looking in our thinking. swift and evidence based in our actions, and we must be prayerful".
