Schumer: GOP bill proposal unacceptable

Monday, 19. October 2020 23:41

United States Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (pictured) stated that the Republican proposal for economic stimulus legislation worth $500 billion "was unacceptable a month ago" and that "it remains unacceptable now."

He also described it as "totally inadequate" because "the crisis has gotten even worse" since then.

Speaking on the Senate floor, he announced that he is looking to call for a vote to adjourn all sessions at the upper chamber of Congress until November 9, with an option to reconvene if "a bipartisan agreement on a COVID relief package" gets reached in the meantime.
