McCarthy Blasts Pelosi for Lying About Changes to the Coronavirus Bill: ‘An Outright Lie’
McCARTHY: “A few minutes ago, the Speaker stood at the podium and claimed that House Democrats did what she called a jujitsu to change the bill. That is an outright lie. The fundamental portion of this bill has not changed since Sunday. Four months for unemployment was already decided on Sunday. The grant to keep employees hired on small business was already decided on Sunday. The only few additions were funding of things that had nothing to do with the Coronavirus. Was that worth holding it up and more people being laid off, more people losing sleep, more people wondering if they can continue? Those are the type of games that have to stop in Washington."
