    McConnell: Dems won't allow 'a penny' in stimulus 'unless Texas and Florida bail out New Jersey'

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell argued on Monday that Democratic leaders view the coronavirus pandemic as a political "opportunity" to "bail out" states such as New Jersey, adding that Republicans are willing to support another coronavirus stimulus plan that includes funding for other areas.

    "I'd hoped the Senate would be spending this week turning a major agreement into law, but sadly for the country, sadly for struggling Americans, the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the Senate Democratic leader decided we would not deliver any of that," McConnell said during a speech on the Senate floor.

    "They stayed true to their comments from very early on in the pandemic," he added. "This is the way they looked at it. They saw this pandemic as, quote, 'a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.' That was the House Democratic Whip. Speaker Pelosi herself put it this way: 'This is an opportunity. Every crisis is.' Working families call this pandemic a crisis. They call it a nightmare, but leading Democrats call it an opportunity."

    "No deal unless we pay people more to stay home. It's not about COVID. It’s not about a real reopening. It's about far-left ideology. They preferred for the jobless benefits to go down to zero unless they could pay people more to stay home," McConnell said, referring to continuing the $600 benefit. "Nobody gets a penny unless Texas and Florida bail out New Jersey — so this is where we are."
