McConnell's political theater... Announces votes Tuesday and Wednesday on GOP stimulus measures

McConnell announces votes Tuesday and Wednesday on GOP stimulus measures

(CNN)Senate Republicans on Tuesday will try to advance a stand-alone Payroll Protection Program bill to help small businesses reeling from the coronavirus pandemic before moving on Wednesday to vote on the same $500 billion stimulus bill that Democrats blocked last month.

The votes, which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced on Saturday, come as he tries to put increasing political pressure on Democrats to support the PPP measure while negotiations over a sweeping coronavirus relief package remain stalled.

It is not known how many Democrats might support it, but it is unlikely that the Senate Republican majority will get the necessary support to advance the bill.

McConnell had announced on Tuesday that Senate Republicans would attempt to move forward on a "targeted" coronavirus relief bill when the Senate returns to session.

2. Moscow Mitch: Each American may have a bright new shiny nickle to help them through hard times.

Cont. - If there is any complaining from all you wanting handouts, then you can settle for a penny, because these are hard times for all of us. And the power bill has to be paid on Wall Street first, the wealthy elite need their injection of capital since they have been suffered the brunt of the pandemic, and CEOs need their tracks greased to get this country moving again. You all just don't understand how Washington really works. If the Democratic Party hadn't left everything in such horrible shape, then more could be done for all of you.

American Public: What planet is he on and what the hell is he jabbering about?
