This stimulus provision - which Republicans call essential - is actually a 'poison pill': Gillibrand

One of the deepest partisan divides in the eight-month long push for another coronavirus stimulus bill is over the question of liability protections for businesses.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) has long called the provisions essential for another deal. In fact, the L in his HEALS Act stands for liability protections.

In a recent Fox News Radio interview, McConnell said the provision keeps hospitals, doctors, nurses, colleges, universities and businesses from being sued over how they handle the coronavirus.

Democrats have long resisted the provision and New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand went even further on Thursday in an interview with Yahoo Finance.
