The Senate Dems are playing games with American lives.
They blocked the Coronavirus relief efforts to help scared and struggling Americans and Mitch McConnell is “pissed.”
47-47: Senate fails to advance Phase 3 COVID-19 economic stimulus bill process. 60 votes were needed. All Democrats voted No. McConnell switched his vote to No allowing for 2nd vote. 5Rs Gardner-CO, Lee-UT, Paul-KY, Romney-UT & Scott-FL are in self-quarantine & missed the vote. pic.twitter.com/NRVzlwTyAt

CNN reporter Phil Mattingly took to Twitter where he shared his observation about the Senate Majority Leader right after the bill was blocked by Senate Democrats.
This is about as pissed off as I’ve seen McConnell on the floor.

A staff writer for The Hill called McConnell “irate.”
McConnell irate on the Senate floor after Democrats block motion to proceed to stimulus bill: "Look, I can understand obstruction when you're trying to achieve something. This obstruction achieves nothing."

McConnell then took to the floor where he aired his anger at Democrats who would rather play politics than help struggling American families. McConnell warned Dems that another vote was coming and they better fall in line.
“We’ll have this cloture vote again at some point of my choosing, and hopefully some adults will show up on the other side of the room and understand the gravity of the situation…”

In the meantime, people are outraged beyond belief that the Dems would pull a stunt like this.
You will lose your job because of the Democrats.

I don't think Dems have fully thought out the optics of playing political games with this relief bill. pic.twitter.com/FTTVno4azF

The Senate canceled recess to work at breakneck speed because people need help now.
Pelosi waltzes in after the House has been on a week long vacation and says they’re going to do their own thing and the Senate’s Monday urgency is arbitrary.
Just wild. https://t.co/6PHS7y4YE2

Democrats are demanding a subsidy for upper-class, highly-educated voters while the service industry burns.
Real party of the people stuff. https://t.co/Br0rhQExJc

The Democrat filibuster of corona relief is the single most irresponsible act I’ve seen in 20 years of being around the Senate. God help the Americans whose livelihoods will be irreparably damaged tomorrow as a result.

Ask yourself this…would Dems have blocked this bill if it was some kind of “relief” for illegal aliens?
These globalists absolutely hate the American worker.
Folks, as much as you hate to see it or say it, this virus is officially “political.”
