“The economy needs another shot of adrenaline,” McConnell said. “If we lose control of the virus…everything else will be window dressing.”
The Kentucky legislator said the Republican’s stimulus proposal will include $105billion for reopening schools and an additional $15billion for providing safe environments for kids in child care centers.
Democrats argue the current package doesn’t provide enough aid to destitute cities and states scrambling for funds while facing health crises and record-high unemployment numbers.
McConnell also said there would be tax incentives on hiring and retaining employees, as well as reimbursement for PPE, coronavirus testing, and remodelling for workplaces adapting to the virus.
