McCONNELL: Dems Holding Up Relief Package Over ‘Tax Credits for Solar and Wind Energy’

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.23.20

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell ripped his Democratic colleagues opposition to the Republican Coronavirus relief package Monday; accusing lawmakers of trying to include “tax credits for solar and wind energy” companies.

“These are just some of the unrelated demands Senate Democrats have used to slow relief for workers and families: Tax credits for solar and wind energy. Special treatment for Big Labor. Airlines’ emissions standards This is a crisis. Why is only one side acting like it?” posted McConnell on social media.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw ripped his Democratic colleagues Monday over their refusal to back a bipartisan Coronavirus relief bill; saying they were “lying” about claims the legislation is little more than a GOP “slush fund.”

“Dems are lying about the rescue bill. They say it’s a ‘slush fund.’ In reality, loans to big businesses PROHIBIT increases in executive pay and stock buy backs. It’s in the bill, clear as day. They don’t have real reasons for opposing this. This is pure, bitter partisanship,” said Crenshaw on social media.

“Here is the text on the $500B portion of the bill: Direct Lending Limitations: executive total compensation may not exceed $425,000; prohibition of stock buybacks during the duration of the loan; borrowers must maintain existing payroll as of March 13. Dems are lying,” he added.
