Senate Democrats block GOP relief bill
By Jordain Carney - 09/10/20 01:24 PM EDT

Senate Democrats blocked a GOP coronavirus bill on Thursday amid a deep stalemate over the next relief package.

Senators voted 52-47 on the roughly $500 billion Republican bill, which marked the first coronavirus-related legislation the chamber has voted on since it passed a $484 billion package in April.

The vote handed a symbolic victory to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who spent weeks haggling with Republicans and the White House over the contours of the pared-down GOP bill as he sought to overcome deep divisions over the path forward.


GOP leadership worked behind the scenes to lock down 51 votes, a U-turn from last month when McConnell predicted that up to 20 GOP senators wouldn’t vote for any additional legislation. GOP Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) was the only Republican to vote against the bill on Thursday.

But it failed to get the 60 votes needed to overcome Thursday’s procedural hurdle as congressional Democratic leadership and the White House remain at a standoff over a fifth coronavirus package.

Not to worry...  In the next Dem Senate 51 votes will pretty much pass anything they want.

Democrats voted against aid for families, money to re-open schools, and funds to research vaccines & treatments today in the Senate

Remind me again which party isn't taking the virus seriously?

@Right_in_Virginia

Ain't it GREAT to have a President that the Dims and their RINO pals can't bully into submission?

This is the first time in my life this has been true,but it is something I could easily get used to.

Heaven forbid that the money goes directly to the people instead of Crat coffers where they decide who is worthy.
