Here’s what we know now…
In a recent interview with Fox Business Network’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin admitted that he is hoping for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to introduce new coronavirus relief legislation by next week.
According to Breitbart, when asked about another round of economic relief, Mnuchin stated, “Well, Lou, we’re going to keep trying. Because it’s too important for the American people.”
Mnuchin went on to say that he and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows “have been hosting daily calls with Mitch McConnell and the Republicans in the Senate, and we’ve been keeping Kevin McCarthy and his team up to date. And hopefully, Mitch will enter new legislation next week that, again, [will focus on] kids, jobs, liability protection for small businesses. As you know, there’s still too many small businesses that have been hurt by this, have nothing to do with their own issue. Parts of the economy have opened very quickly, parts of the economy are still suffering.”
