Democrats block Coronavirus response bill in Senate

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

The number of senators is dwindling in the Senate. Senator Rand Paul just received a positive test result for the virus and some senators that were near him recently are also self-quarantining per CDC guidance. Paul is “asymptomatic” meaning he has no symptoms of the virus. He was tested out of an abundance of caution because of his travels.

Republican Senators Mike Lee and Mitt Romney both from Utah, have self-quarantined as they were in close proximity to Paul recently. Sen. Romney’s office stated, “Since Senator Romney sat next to Senator Paul for extended periods in recent days and consistent with [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] guidance, the attending physician has ordered him to immediately self-quarantine and not to vote on the Senate floor.”

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo) and Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) are also self-quarantined.

Coronavirus Relief legislation fails

The loss of Republican senators is making it hard to pass any legislation in the Senate as Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell struggles to act in the face of an impending economic crisis.

McConnell announced Paul’s results on the Senate floor on Sunday, “Colleagues, as everyone now knows, the coronavirus has arrived in the Senate. There are at least five senators who are in self-quarantine at the moment.” All five of the senators in self-quarantine are Republicans, bringing the number of Republicans available to vote on legislation to 48 against the Democrat”s 47.

The Senate Democrats, led by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), after working with Republicans, decided to block the massive spending bill designed to help Americans through the coronavirus crisis.

After meeting with McConnell, Schumer, and Ranking member Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to discuss the bill, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced that the House would be drafting their own bill. McConnell was visibly angry after the vote, accusing Democrats of obstruction. Another vote is scheduled for Monday morning.

      1. HONESTLY, I DO NOT ‘BELIEVE’, THAT THE ‘DIM PARTY’-ACTUALLY ‘GIVES A ‘DARN’, ABOUT THIS, UNBELIEVABLE/NIGHTMARE THAT AMERICAS ARE EXPERIENCING-AT THIS TIME!

NOW, IS MOST CERTAINLY-NOT-THE TIME, TO BE THINKING ‘POLITICS’-BUT IT IS OBVIOUS, THAT THE ‘DIM PARTY’ IS, ACTUALLY ‘HAVING A PARTY’-OVER THIS ‘MONSTROUS TRAGEDY’! SICKENING/DISGUSTING, HORRIFIC-I AM TRULY, ‘RUNNING OUT OF WORDS-TO STATE MY THOUGHTS, ON THE ‘TRAITOROUS’/UNBELIEVEABLE /CRIMINAL ACTS-THAT THE ‘DIM PARTY’ IS ATTEMPTING!

    1. The Demonrat party is a stain on our nation. All they care about is their bank accounts. They should all be arrested.

      1. YES! AND, ‘REMOVED FROM OFFICE-FOREVER! THESE-SO-CALLED PEOPLE-ARE WILLING TO ‘SACRIFICE’ OUR NATION-ALL FOR A ‘STUPID ELECTION! THOSE ON THE ‘DIM SIDE’-ARE MORE THAN WILLING, TO ALLOW AMERICANS TO DIE-ONLY, IN ORDER TO POSSIBLY, ‘WIN THE 20/20 ELECTION & REMOVE THE BEST PRESIDENT AMERICA HAS BEEN FORTUNATE TO HAVE, SINCE REAGAN!

      2. I certainly agree—the Dems are traitors to America-their push for themselves and their behavior says it all. They need pushed out of office—–They are so full of hatred and corruption—–and they show it to the American people everyday for a longtime—no rational thoughts from them–Like I say their behavior is so noticed to us sane people—very transparent they are NOT FOR AMERICA AT ALL-PERIOD!!!!!!!!!! THANK GOD— WE HAVE THE CHOICE TO PUT TRUMP IN OFFICE 4 MORE YEARS—Our President has shown and what he has done for America–positive and truly honest.

  1. It is becoming increasingly obvious to millions of Americans that the Democratic Party, aided and guided by the so-called “mainstream” media, is out to destroy the presidency of a legitimately elected candidate – Donald J. Trump – and they are willing to take the entire country down if it means they can regain power.

    The shock is not that the Democrats would turn political on the matter; it is just how little resistance in the press was realized after an about-face on the bill in less than a 24 hour period. Yes, the media is blatantly in bed with the Democrats on this pathogen crisis, but even they would certainly see a problem with Chuck Schumer praising the bill he and the Democrats helped write, only to turn around and trash it less than 12 hours later, solely on the direction of Nancy Pelosi.

    1. You are right!! The main stream media is just sick!! We need a remedy soon…or so many weak minded people will actually believe it (are believing it.) The Dem Party are not our friends folks! Maybe some alien creatures in disguise, trying to destroy America??? But this I know for a fact….they will do anything…and I mean ANYTHING to take this president down. He needs our prayers and support folks!

    2. QNancy Pelosi works for the citizens of this country and she seems to have forgotten that. In life everything counts. This is not the time to use your power in malificent ways.You are abandoning the people of this country who are hurting .We are watching the Democratic Party members and if they are capable of independent thought.I remember hearing Kristine Pelosi saying my mother will cut your head off and you will never know what happened.

  2. its time that 2nd amendment patriots break out the arms and take it to the democrats who are trying to destroy our country if we are going to die then I suggest we take as many dems as we can as we go lets find a leader and start the war

    1. I appreciate you concern but starting a revolution with our weapons is the last effort . We must speak louder and everyday to our congressmen and women. Let them know they must listen to us. We need term limits badly.

      1. I’m sorry but you’d have more success talking satan into praying the “Our Father” than to listen to what ANY of US have to say. You can talk till you’re blue in the face but they won’t respond to any of it. We mean no more to them than a fly buzzing around their head. We ANNOY them.

    2. The war is best fought with a voice right now. Its better to stand together. Demand there removal. The ones put in office.do the work of the people for the people. Or we fire you. Don’t wait on end of your term.just fired.

  3. I hope the unemployed Democrats whom are sitting home worrying about how they are going to make it through this without loosing their homes or putting food on the table to feed their families, will remember how Schumer and Pelosi helped them. You can start to remember them when its time to vote them out. What a bunch of scum to turn on people in their times of need.
    Trump 2020

    1. Pelosi makes $100000 thousand a year. She don’t live like Americans. She needs the 15 hr job she wants for you.

  4. It’s really sad that people that were elected to help direct America are now doing everything they can to bring America to a standstill. They need to be removed from office, now!

  5. Do line item veto to the rats 🐀 and lets go. It’s rediculious that people can’t or won’t see how the democrats are trying to destroy this country. Everyone of them should be ran out of Washington. America needs help now. Quit playing politics polisi and shumer

    1. We stand together it can happen. There plan is easy. Together we stand. Divide we fall.demarat. know that. They keep us divide. They stay in office. That way.they win. We must stand together.

  6. I don’t understand why these jerks are allowed to get away with what they do. They care nothing about America or Americans only their getting their own way

  7. Get rid of Nancy Pelosi. She is nuts and not for the American citizens. She is so hateful. Been there (house) too long thinks she a big shot. Sorry Nancy you are a peon like the rest of us, your sh_t stinks also

  8. This is really sad because Pelosi has everything she wants and needs and that is why she doesn’t care about the people. She is very wealthy and she got that way as she has done the same thing the four did,insider trading. The things she wants from the President have nothing to do with this pandemic as she only cares about going against our President. It’s not the time to go in the direction she wants and those things in no way will save any lives. She needs to lose her spot as she doesn’t know how to have empathy for others and it’s very important that she considers others before herself.

  9. I was a loyal democrat until I could no longer support the liberal progressive agenda that is now the official party stance. What they are doing can only end in their own demise. I am more than willing to give them their choice of governing, but when you hold Americans in need hostage in a time like this, we can only hope whatnot will wake up those who blindly follow their lies. If this does not convince you that they do not care for you then probably nothing will. To my union brothers and sisters, for your own sake and the sake of America, wake up!

  10. Why should being quarantined prevent the Senators from voting? With today’s technology they should be allowed to vote by any means available. They have a job to do and should be allowed to do it.

    1. The children are getting there school work done at home via computer, but not the most important time in our history, so we have to put up with MORE Democrat games, at the expense of the citizenry of this country. How , pray tell me these people are still in office, are Democrats that insensitive or is it they are all they have? Pathetic…talk about sheep
      Obviously the entire Democrat party is ruining this country, down to the last vote…dead person or not!

  11. They are totally without shame and are not the people we need in government , that are totally against the will of the American citizen. Why do the Democraps of this country continue to put up with this non leadership! Pathetic…………..

  12. People are going to remember that the democrats refused to work with the republicans so they could have some money during the time of the virus. Nasty Nancy is so self righteous she only cares about her self. She has stated she does not care if hurts the people of America. Her actions will be good ad material during the election.

  13. It’s TDS. The GD Dems can’t win the election so their only hope is to destroy the country. Russia Russia Russia didn’t work. Impeach Impeach didn’t work so basically destroying my country is all they have left.
    I despise the Democratic Party. They have lost their minds.

  14. Remember Americans we have the right to vote. We still have votes coming use them wisely and and vote the Democrats out of office. Lets stand together for the President and vote for a Republican next year. Maybe the Democrats will learn they are not in charge of the U.S.A. all the way.

  15. It’s obvious the Mainstream Media, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer will go to any length to try to gain back the White House next November. I for one, will not forget all of the crap they’ve put their constituents through, starting with the Ru$$ia Collu$ion hoax, the Ukraine hoax, the impeachment hoax and now this. Every Democrat politician can’t spit out a line without a hit on President Trump. I for one will not forget what these Democratic parasites are doing to our country. Their vitriol has softened their brain tissue to mush. Don’t forget them when in the voting booth.

  16. Put those quarantined GOP senators in hazmat suits and get them in there to vote. If Mnuchin gives away “the farm” to Schumer and Pelosi then Pres. Trump should veto it and send them back to get it right!

  17. We all need to get behind president trump. Get demarats out. We need to get real working people into office. Get life time populations out.8 yrs get out. Pay only 8 yrs.not the rest of your life. No one else gets that you quit your fired.what ever pay ends.

  18. I’m from Texas. We don’t need any idiot from calf telling us what to do or what we need . Let stand together put trump back in office. No matter where you’re from. Let us stand together. Say enough is enough

  19. I would like to see the group of three kicked out of Congress they are so stupid. what I would like to know is how did this come about. pelosi is so stupid and is letting these traitors run the democratic party. the fact that they are stopping this last bill is awful. they should try to make things work when they are layed off. I do not know if something can be done, but trump is staying strong and I would tell the people who is holding this money up. I don’t know what I could do as I cannot vote them out.

  20. Pelosi And her Scum devil team need to be impeached immediately! Enough is enough! How dare their sorry butts treat Americans this way, may they all burn in Hell..can you say Satan!! Kick her & her dentures out of office now! If Republicans give into these snakes that’s wrong & the Dems will not stop, they are total enemy of our great Nation! Totally disgusting & most vile – complete waste of air!

  21. From across The Pond Keep Well and Stay Safe . I Must say I Am A Big Fan of your President Like The US We Were Under The Left for So Many Years even when a so Called Tory Was Prime Minister Theresa May .Now We Have Boris and he is getting Things Done for us as is Donald Trump. And Now in the Midst Of A Crisis up Pop’s The Lefties and Throws a Spanner in The Works. All I will Say People Do Not Forget the Lefties Have Their Own Agenda That is to Stop Common Sense , Remember Nick Clegg with David Cameron ? He Put us Back Years . So America I Say You Have a Great President and Come Election Time Remember He Tried To Help People Not Hinder Common Sense !

  22. There should be a change made to the requirement of physical presence when voting in Congress. In times of national emergency, and given the electronic capabilities we now have compared to what was available when the physical presence requirement was enacted, the need for a member of Congress, House or Senate, to be physically present in chambers in order to vote needs to be changed and allow for electronic voting, either on-line through a computer link or by phone where all the members can hear the vote. What are they going to do if a bomb, missile, tornado, or falling aircraft hits the chamber? Shut down the operation of government when continuity is most needed? The rule is outmoded and needs to enter the 21st century.

  23. I believe it’s obvious that the Democrats do not want a healthy successful country. It is Horrific to think they would further take advantage of not just the present crisis but the American people to advance their ridiculous addenda. I would use an executive order and get the relief moving to the American people. The left has lost touch with what is important so it’s time to remove them from the equation. People are hurting out here some desperately and our basic rights are being taken daily. Its time to act now!

  24. We are in uncharted territory so we must adapt to our new circumstances. Government has no trouble telling us what to do but for themselves they seem to be very slow moving. All senators who are in self-quarantine should be allowed to vote on bills remotely. After all they are telling us not to congregate in groups of more than 10, to work and educate our children from home. Why does it always seem they make rule, laws and or suggestions they themselves do not follow? Time, they stop this double standard they love so much!

  25. Isn’t there anybody in the entire body of government that can tell these bastards dems “it is time to act and shu-p up”!
    It is unconceivable in this time that the dems can just block the efforts of 250 or more senators and get away with their preferences, like millions for refugees!!! For crying out loud, how about the citizens suffering the desease, their job losses plus a lot more, AND THEY GET CONCERNED ABOUT THE ILLEGALS AND REFUGEES??!!!! In countries with more intelligent people they would be having to deal with serious demonstrations!!! Why don’t we start a march towards their homes, keeping them in quarentine for a coupkle of months???
