McConnell Faces GOP Revolt Over New COVID Aid Bill

Reuters reports:

The Republican leaders of the U.S. Senate will introduce a proposal for additional coronavirus relief on Tuesday and could schedule a vote as soon as this week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said.

The two parties are sharply divided, but there are disputes also among President Donald Trump’s fellow Republicans.

Many of the Senate’s 53 Republicans are on record opposing any additional federal coronavirus relief, although some want to pass a so-called “skinny” bill planned by McConnell, far smaller than the House bill.
