McConnell Won’t Give Paid Leave To Coronavirus Victims, Says It’s ‘An Ideological Wish’

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) argued on Thursday that Democrats gave Americans an “ideological wish list” by wanting to give paid leave for citizens who contracted the COVID-19 coronavirus.

According to the Courier-Journal, McConnell claimed that he is against the current House legislation for coronavirus relief, which includes free testing, food assistance, and paid sick leave for infected workers and their caregivers.

“Instead of working within existing law and within existing systems to deliver targeted relief as efficiently and effectively as possible, the speaker’s proposal would stand up a needless thicket of new bureaucracy,” said McConnell.

He went on to praise Donald Trump’s efforts to increase small business loans and restrict international travel, adding, “unfortunately, it appears at this hour that the speaker and House Democrats instead chose to produce an ideological wish list that was not tailored closely to the circumstances.”
