‘NOT ENOUGH’: Warren Says ‘Any Stimulus’ Plan Must Support ‘Workers Benefits,’ Not ‘Giant Corporations’

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.23.20

Failed presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren weighed-in Monday on the ongoing Congressional negotiations regarding a Coronavirus relief plan; saying any package must support “workers benefits.”

“Any stimulus must support workers’ payroll and benefits—not enrich wealthy executives of giant corporations. If we want to weather this crisis, we need to build the economy from the grassroots up,” posted Warren on social media.

 

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell slammed his Democratic colleagues Monday for delaying a bipartisan Coronavirus relief package; with top aides accusing the liberal lawmakers of blocking the legislation over their “ideological wish list.”

“Republicans are accusing Democrats of using the coronavirus pandemic as an opportunity to push unrelated political agendas, as the two sides failed to reach an agreement Sunday night to advance legislation that would provide relief to American businesses and families struggling as a result of the outbreak,” reports Fox News.

“They ought to be embarrassed,” said Sen. McConnell. “This is no time for this nonsense.”

“We Democrats are trying to get things done, not making partisan speech after partisan speech,” fired-back Sen. Schumer.

“As Leader Schumer continues to hold up the desperately-needed relief package, the last-minute list of demands from Pelosi’s and Schumer’s ideological wish list are coming into focus,” one senior Republican aide said.

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez weighed-in Monday on the country’s efforts to combat the effects of Coronavirus; calling for “climate transition,” education expansion, free healthcare, and apprenticeships to offset the disease.

“What we should seriously start to consider now for the medium & long term (bc it will take time) is New Deal-style policy. We need a mix of policies to help put a lot of people to work. Climate transition, edu expansion w/ apprenticeships & colleges, M4A. These are jobs bills,” posted AOC on social media.

Her comments come hours after NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio announce a citywide shutdown on all theaters, bars, restaurants, and nightclubs to prevent new infections.

“Mayor Bill de Blasio announced late Sunday that the Big Apple’s nightlife will shut down and its restaurants and bars will only provide takeout or delivery service as authorities struggle to get ahead of the mounting coronavirus pandemic,” reports the NY Post.

Businesses have until 9am Tuesday morning to close their dining rooms to patrons. The move also applies to Starbucks, McDonalds, and other quick-service restaurants.

“Our lives are all changing in ways that were unimaginable just a week ago,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.

“We are taking a series of actions that we never would have taken otherwise in an effort to save the lives of loved ones and our neighbors,” he added.

“This virus can spread rapidly through the close interactions New Yorkers have in restaurants, bars and places where we sit close together,” de Blasio’s statement said. “We have to break that cycle.”
