Schumer-Led Senate Minority Blocks Much Needed Coronavirus Relief

By Harry G. Hutchison1585085332210

The Left is not shy about using the Coronavirus crisis to do virtually everything possible rather than reduce the impact of the virus on health care, prop up the economy, and provide desperately needed aid to the American people. While some Americans are literally dying, Left-wing Members of Congress dither and dream of enacting a wish-list.

Unchecked this virus could destroy the country and American lives, and accordingly we have no choice but to fight this virus with everything we have got. While the state of New York, for instance, is constructing four 250-bed federal emergency hospitals over the next seven to ten days to save lives, the Speaker Pelosi-led House majority apparently have other priorities. House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (SC-6) has “reportedly told colleagues that the bill provided ‘a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit’ their vision.”

The Left’s Wish-list does not concentrate on urgently fighting the coronavirus but instead delays much needed relief for the American people. While the Schumer-led Senate minority voted Sunday to block a Coronavirus stimulus package worth up to $1.8 trillion, House Speaker “Pelosi released her plan as critics questioned the priorities of Democratic lawmakers facing the China-caused pandemic.”

Rather than fully concentrating their energy on making more N95 masks and respirators, House Speaker Pelosi has introduced a bill that concentrates on other things, including "diversity," which is a word that appears 32 times in the Democrats’ coronavirus relief bill. This bill would force corporations to restructure their Board of Directors during a crisis rather than focus on their attention on solving the economic and health care crisis we face and on reducing the levels of unemployment.

Apparently because she does not wish to allow a crisis to go to waste, House Speaker Pelosi rolled out her plan as she faced accusations that it would turn “coronavirus relief into a ‘Green New Deal’ by adding provisions on carbon emissions, strengthening collective bargaining, and other seemingly unrelated policies that do not directly address the coronavirus pandemic."

In addition, 10 days ago, rather than focus on fighting the obvious health care pandemic,  the Left pushed federal abortion funding in another coronavirus relief bill – something we immediately mobilized to help defeat. This raises question, are the Democrats interested in saving human life or ending it in a time of crises?

In response to the Left’s delay tactics, the ACLJ is prepared to take action to fight for immediate relief for American workers and patients now rather than wait till tomorrow, next week, or next month.

Our legal team is currently going through the latest bill by Speaker Pelosi, line by line. You can read more about what we’ve found so far here.

Join us in urging Congress to take immediate action to solve the coronavirus crisis.
