Folks, this was done to tank the markets. This was done to resist President Trump. This was done to screw over the American worker. The Senate has a $1.6 trillion Wuhan coronavirus bailout package that Democrats co-wrote. They filibustered it on Sunday night. We all know why they’re doing this. This isn’t a secret. The Dow Jones is down some 600 points as we speak and now, they’re trying to logroll stuff that is unrelated to this pandemic. Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) said this move is to shift the economic agenda more to the progressive Left’s vision. Guy wrote up the laundry list the left wants right now. And now, as Cortney wrote, they blocked the bailout package again. They hope to have a deal by the end of the day (via Politico):

Senate Democrats are rushing to finish negotiations with the Trump administration on a massive $1.6 trillion-plus emergency rescue package as the coronavirus spreads and markets continue to dive.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on the Senate floor Monday afternoon that he was confident that negotiators will reach a deal soon.

But Republicans argued Democrats are stalling the proposal and are adding extraneous provisions onto the package that have nothing to do with the coronavirus outbreak, like fuel emission standards for airlines and more wind and solar tax credits.

“Democrats won’t let us fund hospitals or save small businesses until they get to dust off the Green New Deal,” a visibly irritated McConnell said. “This has got to stop. And today is the day it has to stop. The country is out of time.”

Tensions on the Senate floor reached new heights Monday afternoon as lawmakers rushed to complete the deal, with Republicans berating Democrats for the delays.

“I cannot believe objections to proceeding to this package,” said Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), who worked on its small business provisions. “Is this package perfect? No but that’s why negotiations are going on … Time is not on our side.”
