Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took Democrats to task Monday after members voted in unison to reject a massive relief bill.
Mind you, the measure spends a LOT of money and adds a LOT to our national debt, which Republicans generally oppose.
But as McConnell (R-Ky.) said, it's legislation that has to be passed and now because Americans are suffering economically as business closures grow and uncertainty is causing the stock market to tank.
"The American people expect us to act. If we fail, it will be because Senate Democrats are continuing to dither while the country expects bold, bipartisan action," McConnell tweeted.
Democrats, he says, are delaying the bill for purely partisan reasons. Now, we know that Republicans tend to do that too from time to time, and McConnell even admitted it.
But right now, with the economy tanking, many Americans want Congress to step up and get something done, not bicker and posture for 'their side.'
