Democrats are Using Coronavirus to Push their Partisan Agenda Instead of Focusing on the Health and Safety of Americans

Last night the Senate unanimously passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. This bipartisan package will provide much-needed support for families and businesses as well as stabilize the economy.
Highlights of the CARES Act:
Direct assistance to families and workers through recovery checks.
Individuals are eligible for checks up to $1,200 and married couples filing jointly are eligible for checks up to $2,400, with an extra $500 for each child.
Strengthens and expands unemployment insurance for Americans who cannot work due to the coronavirus disaster.
Students can defer student loan payments for 6 months.
$350 billion in federally guaranteed loans via the Paycheck Protection Program for small businesses.
These resources will allow 8 weeks of cash-flow assistance to small businesses that maintain their payrolls.
$17 billion in small business debt relief.
$100 billion for hospitals and health care providers.
$16 billion for personal protection equipment (PPE), ventilators, and medical supplies.
$4.3 billion for the CDC.
$45 billion for the FEMA disaster relief fund.
$19 billion for the Department of Veterans Affairs to support our veterans.
Speeds the development of coronavirus vaccines, ensures free tests, and boost hiring of coronavirus related jobs.
It’s now time for Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats to pass this legislation to provide much overdue relief.
President Trump and the White House Coronavirus Task Force are leading an unprecedented, comprehensive, and aggressive whole of America approach to slow the spread of the virus. This response started in January.
Americans are approving the President’s response efforts:
A Gallup poll showed 60% approve of the President’s response to the coronavirus. The Gallup poll also showed an increase in the President’s approval rating among independents and Democrats.
The White House Coronavirus Task Force remains in constant communication with the world, Federal, State, and Local officials. The public and media continue to be informed through press conferences and interviews.
Working with private sector partners, the production of personal protective equipment has increased.
Ford Motor Company, Hanes, Walmart, Apple, and Carnival Cruise Lines are just some of the many companies that have stepped up to help Americans and health care professionals.
The cure cannot be worse than the problem itself and the President and his team remain hopeful the economy can reopen soon.
We have to balance the public health concern with the enormous impact the virus is having on the economy.
This is not a financial crisis. When we defeat the coronavirus, the economy will come roaring back.
President Trump and White House Coronavirus Task Force are encouraging everyone to follow the guidelines to slow the spread in 15 days.
