After delaying negotiations for three days, Democrats are now trying to carve out a victory, claiming they fought for items that were already in the original draft of the bill.
This is not an emergency virus bill. It is a Democratic election wish list, at a time hundreds are dying, thousands are losing their businesses, and millions are out of work in the United States.
Just beyond — and in the midst of — the public health and financial liquidity crises is the expansive and potentially devastating solvency crisis.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s coronavirus bill is not enough. It is not nearly enough. And if there is any hope of keeping the U.S. economy from free fall, its deficiencies must be addressed this week.
