$900 Billion ‘COVID-19 Relief’ Deal Reached by Congress

( – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) declared that legislative leadership had struck an agreement for “COVID-19 relief” totaling almost $900 billion in federal expenditures.

According to McConnell, the funding plan will “give substantial sums for the logistics” of providing coronavirus vaccines.

He said of the vaccines, “We can’t undo the success of Operation Warp Speed by slacking off on the delivery.”

He didn’t mention lockdowns or shutdowns of businesses or other operations during his statements on the Senate floor. Instead, he referred to it as a “massive rescue package with targeted actions to help suffering Americans.”

He continued by saying the logistics that will deliver these potentially life-saving doses to our folks as soon as possible are made feasible by this deal, which will bring enormous funding.

McConnell’s team tweeted:

When talking to small business and restaurant owners, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) avoided mentioning apparent public health-related lockdown or shutdown orders against enterprises and other organizations. He called the legal agreement “emergency help.”

The deal includes $4 billion for the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA), a public agency that manages public transportation in and around New York City, according to Schumer:

At a press conference, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) spoke while donning a mask and referring to a “coronavirus relief and omnibus package.”

Addressing Lockdowns And Shutdowns Of American Businesses

Of the four congressional leaders, only House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has addressed lockdowns and shutdowns.

His Twitter bio and home page both indicate lockdowns and closures concerning the coronavirus outbreak:

According to Politico, the public is currently not allowed to view the law text. And that there was no mention of lockdown or shutdown orders was made in its report.

Reports suggest that the legislative accord will include “an increase in weekly unemployment benefits of $300 for 11 weeks [and] relief checks of $600 for individuals and children.”

Both Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) are advocating the distribution of $1,200 checks as “direct payments.”
