McConnell Predicts People Won’t Go Back to Work if They Get $1,400 Checks
Millions of Americans are hoping that they can soon get back to work on a normal basis. Until the country gets to that point, though, many can use financial help.
To that end, Democrats introduced a bill that would give a number of workers a $1,400 stimulus checks. The bill is one of the most popular pieces of legislation over the last decade.
Still, no GOP senators are willing to vote for it despite that fact that a majority or Republican voters support it. Mitch McConnell tried to illogically explain their stance Wednesday during an appearance on Fox News.
Host Martha MacCallum asked, “Do you think the checks that are going out — you know, there’s some unemployment benefits, additional benefits that would run out in March — do you believe that these checks prevents some people from wanting to work?”
The senate minority leader responded, “Well, there is a concern. [We’re concerned] about making it more advantageous to stay home rather than going back to work.”
