Senate Democrats Reject Much-Needed COVID-19 Relief Once Again

Written by Press Release

October 21, 2020

WASHINGTON– U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement following Senate Democrats’ filibuster of targeted coronavirus relief legislation that would offer further support to American families, workers, small businesses, schools and front line health care workers:

“Americans have to be tired of watching Senate Democrats block multiple efforts to provide them with relief during this difficult period. 

My colleagues and I put forth yet another responsible, targeted relief bill focused on getting Americans back to work, back to school and back to some sense of normalcy. Instead of working with us to pass this bill, Senate Democrats continue to state Speaker Pelosi’s bill—which comes with a multi-trillion dollar price tag, and funds programs which have nothing to do with COVID-19 needs—is all they will accept.

This is not the issue to play politics with. Our nation is simultaneously facing a public health emergency and an economic crisis at the same time. This chamber has a responsibility to act. I urge my colleagues on the other side of the aisle to stop focusing on their own political wishes. Instead, they ought to start focusing on defeating the virus and helping those who are struggling to get through these unprecedented times.”
