Republican senators quickly rejected the $3 trillion package House Democrats unveiled on Tuesday. “It’s got so much unrelated to the coronavirus, it’s dead on arrival here in terms of a viable idea,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told reporters on Capitol Hill. Republicans control the Senate, making their support necessary for legislation to get passed.

Pelosi’s newest spending bill would require us to borrow $3,000,000,000,000 that our kids would have to pay back.— John Kennedy (@SenJohnKennedy) May 13, 2020
This isn’t a serious or mature effort to legislate. The Speaker’s farce is as dead as fried chicken once Americans see what’s in the bill. pic.twitter.com/MRs6BxnNYO

I don't know of a single Republican who was asked for input for this $3 trillion bill written by @SpeakerPelosi and her friends in the House.— Rep. Vicky Hartzler (@RepHartzler) May 13, 2020
No hearings, no transparent conversations, no opportunities to debate, no chance for input. The House can do better than this. https://t.co/yBIwVA7G4X
Is it a coincidence that @SpeakerPelosi drafted this bill while the House's members are scattered across the country?— Rep. Jody Hice (@CongressmanHice) May 13, 2020
She put this mess together with help from cronies, lobbyists, and big Dem donors.
It's a grab bag for everyone in town—except Americans. https://t.co/KGxsoY8nWZ
