A bill proposes suspending the salary of senators, in solidarity with Americans who do not receive payment for the economic effects generated by the CCP Virus (coronavirus).
“If Americans aren’t getting paid, then neither should the senators failing to support the workers and families who need help making ends meet,” wrote Sen. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) who introduced the bill on March 24.
McSally is conditioning the suspension of senators’ salaries until they approve a financial aid package to mitigate the economic impact of the pandemic.
“The Senate must pass this relief package now in order to get cash straight to the people,” McSally said.
A large number of workers lost their incomes because businesses that provide a service had to limit that service, due to social distancing measures to slow the spread of the CCP virus.
Democrats twice blocked the passage of an economic relief bill, which was seen as bipartisan and negotiated in advance, preventing citizens from receiving the proposed aid money.
The bill provides for direct payments to most Americans, the extension of unemployment benefits, and payment to small business workers who are unable to go to work.
The CCP Virus originated in the city of Wuhan, Hebei Province, China, and the Chinese Communist regime concealed its appearance for months, preventing it from being attacked promptly and allowing the pandemic that has now caused thousands of deaths and serious economic damage around the world.
This disastrous handling of a health problem that turned into a pandemic motivated the some in the House of Representatives to present a bipartisan resolution that condemns the Chinese regime for the serious mistakes it has made.
“The intentional spread of misinformation to downplay the risks of the virus, a refusal to cooperate with international health authorities, internal censorship of doctors and journalists, and malicious disregard for the health of ethnic minorities,” are the charges contained in the resolution against the Chinese regime.
