McConnell Blocks Initial $2,000 Stimulus Check Bill: Democrats ‘Quietly Changed’ What Trump Wanted To Give Money To Their Rich Friends

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky, left, speaks during a news conference following the Senate Republican policy luncheon on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Tuesday, July 21, 2020. The White House and Congress have only a few weeks to come up with another stimulus to prevent the economic rout caused by the coronavirus from deepening as the outbreak is surging across the country.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) blocked a $2,000 stimulus check bill on Wednesday, saying that Democrats “quietly changed” what President Donald Trump wanted in the bill. He said Democrats were attempting “to let wealthy households suck up even more money,” and that they were trying to do away with a repeal of Section 230 and a review of the recent election.

McConnell started out by slamming socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for holding up the override vote on Trump’s veto of the National Defense Authorization Act.

  1. If they had bothered shoot down the original bill versus voting for the bill in numbers that could override a veto, they'd have the leverage. The Stupid Party rides again.
