Pelosi, Schumer urge McConnell to start coronavirus relief negotiations amid uptick in cases
By Jordain Carney - 06/29/20 11:09 AM EDT

The two top congressional Democrats are urging Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to start negotiations on the next coronavirus relief package, as the country sees an uptick in cases.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) in a letter to McConnell on Monday accused Republicans of being "missing in action."

"Americans need and deserve bold action now. We have overcome larger problems than the COVID-19 pandemic but not without powerful and effective actions by our government," they wrote.


"It is unacceptable that the Senate would recess without addressing this urgent issue. On behalf of the millions of American families who desperately need Congressional action, we demand you change your mind and decide to work with us for the good of the country," the top Democrats added.
