McConnell details $500 billion COVID bill set for Wednesday vote
By Jordain Carney - 10/17/20 05:05 PM EDT

The Senate will vote on a $500 billion GOP coronavirus relief bill on Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) announced on Saturday.

The bill — which is less than a third of the size of the $1.8 trillion offer from the White House — will include a federal unemployment benefit and another round of small business assistance under the Paycheck Protection Program.

The bill, according to McConnell, will also include more than $100 billion for schools, as well as money for testing, contact tracing and vaccine development and distribution.


McConnell will require Democratic help to get the 60 votes needed to pass the bill in the Senate. Democrats previously blocked a similar bill and are expected to do the same to the new GOP proposal.

“Nobody thinks this $500B+ proposal would resolve every problem forever. It would deliver huge amounts of additional help to workers and families right now while Washington keeps arguing over the rest,” McConnell said.

In addition to the $500 billion package, McConnell said the Senate will vote on Tuesday on a stand-alone PPP proposal. It would also need 60 votes to ultimately pass the Senate. Republicans had previously planned to hold a stand-alone PPP vote in August but scrapped it because of caucus infighting.

Our socialist democrats want to collapse our economy, just like they did in Germany last century, or more recently Venezuela.  President Trump wants sensible spending and therefore sensible taxes, not economy breaking taxes.
Soros Nazi gold wants Nazi Germany II America, namely history repeating itself.  Open your eyes, the information is before you, just look. :yowsa: 999yawn :yowsa:

It is a two-thirds REPUBLICAN government that has spent 15 TRILLION dollars - More money... nearly doubling the Obama administration... More money spent, more paper printed than any time in history.

The very same can be said of Dubya's government - writing more money than all the money COMBINED in the history of the country previous to his administration.

Your claims fall on deaf ears.
Republicans are not going to save us from financial collapse. They are part and parcel with it, and you are voting them in.

Pelosi and democrat company still keep demanding they won't pass President Trumps bills because they don't spend enough.  Your lockstep has made your eyes glaze over.

Don't care about Pelousy and the left. They only succeed because they face no opposition... As 15 TRILLION dollars passed by a Republican senate and signed by a Republican president amply proves.
