McConnell’s opposition to pandemic relief is insufferable | READER COMMENTARY

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) addresses a news conference on Capitol Hill In Washington, Tuesday, Oct. 20, 2020. Mr. McConnell told Republican senators privately on Tuesday that he has advised the White House not to strike a deal with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on a new stimulus bill before Election Day, cautioning against reaching an agreement that most in the party cannot accept.

I find Sen. Mitch McConnell’s remarks and objection to approving any COVID-19 relief aid package (“McConnell said to warn White House about deal,” Oct. 21) totally reprehensible in the face of the suffering currently going on in this country. It all is based on sheer politics and not giving a damn about the citizens, both Republicans and Democrats, as well as others as he claims it would violate Republican conservative positions.

It appears the White House and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are trying to come up with something to help the suffering people of this country, and all Senate Majority Leader McConnell cares about is his conservative politics. Shame on you, Senator McConnell.
