(AbsoluteNews.com) – When the Senate returned to Capitol Hill on Tuesday, September 8, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) immediately announced the GOP was going to introduce a targeted COVID-19 stimulus package. Republican lawmakers added money for healthcare, childcare and unemployment. The bill went to a vote on Thursday afternoon and Democrats did what they do best: obstruct.
The “skinny” bill needed 60 votes to overcome a filibuster but it was only able to get 52. The only Republican to vote against the legislation was Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), but every Dem refused to support it.
#UPDATE: All Democrats voting 'no' during procedural vote on Senate GOP 'skinny' stimulus bill. The measure fails in a 52-47 vote.

As of right now, there are no other bills in the pipeline to help the American people. The Democratic Party is essentially refusing to negotiate and refusing to pass even a simple stop-gap measure to alleviate the pain millions of Americans are feeling as a result of the pandemic. The election is less than two months away and voters aren’t likely to forget what happened on Thursday.
