Instead of passing the Heroes Act and helping workers hurt by the Covid-19 economy, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has other priorities. He wants the U.S. Senate to weaken Davis-Bacon prevailing wage laws and pass so called “right-to-work.”
He also dismissed the idea of a large investments to rebuild American infrastructure, provide middle-class tax relief, and make voting in the November election safer and more secure. His response says it all:
“For goodness sake, I’ve got a list, too,” McConnell said, rattling off his priorities, even as he resisted promising a Senate GOP version of a fourth coronavirus relief bill, should the House pass a package once Congress reconvenes.
“How about national right to work? How about Davis-Bacon reform? How about ending junk lawsuits against doctors and hospitals? You get the drift,” McConnell continued. “We both have agendas we’d like to see pass — and can’t pass in this current environment.” Source: Washington Post 4/1/20
Let’s stop Mitch McConnell from fulfilling his shopping list. Make a plan to vote by November 3.
