Sen. McConnell: Democrats’ Covid Bill ‘Looks Like Something You’d Pass to Blunt another Year of Shutdowns’

‘The partisan legislation Democrats are preparing to ram through looks like something you’d pass to blunt another year of shutdowns’

EXCERPT:

McCONNELL: “The partisan legislation Democrats are preparing to ram through looks like something you’d pass to blunt another year of shutdowns, not to help guide a smart and proactive recovery. It looks more like another big bandage for a mostly shut down country rather than a launching pad to help us get back on offense. Look at schools. All the facts and hard evidence show that with simple safety precautions, K-12 schools can and should be reopening safely right now. Yet the Biden administration is going out of its way to avoid getting kids back in school. They have their own experts contradicting their own recent statements and their own CDC backpedaling from the hard science, all to accommodate big labor’s goalpost-moving. Just look at the proposed money in their partisan bill for K-12 schools. They call it an emergency relief fund, but just 5% of the money they want would be spent in fiscal year 2021. 95% of this so-called emergency relief for schools would go out in fiscal year 2022 and beyond. Or take the economy. Experts across the spectrum say that incomes, savings, job opportunities, and industry outlooks are already rebounding. Further aid needs to be smartly targeted so government doesn’t get in the way.”
