Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas slammed his Democrat counterparts for refusing to even start a debate over the Coronavirus Relief Bill earlier this week. Democrats delayed the bill by 3 days so they could try to get more far left agenda items agreed upon in the bill.
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) excused the delay, saying the bill included “problematic” provisions. Schumer blamed the breakdown of bi-partisan support on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) saying he should have included both chambers and the White House before beginning.
McConnell replied angrily from the Senate floor, “The American people are watching this spectacle … the notion that we have time to play games here with the American economy and the American people is utterly absurd.”
During his 10-minute speech before his fellow senators, Cotton periodically dropped a sheet of paper to the floor. On that sheet, said Cotton was the Democrats’ “ideological wish list” – a list that included “mandatory diversity and inclusion initiatives for corporate aid recipients, curbs on greenhouse emissions, a $15-per-hour minimum wage, student loan forgiveness and a bailout for the U.S. Postal Service.”
U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) agreed with the Arkansas Senator’s ridicule of Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and the rest of the Democratic Party, “It’s dangerous, I think it’s disgraceful, it’s irresponsible and it’s not going to work.”
