Sen. Merkley: I Agree Completely with Josh Hawley on Including Direct Payments in the Bill

‘I find myself agreeing with Josh Hawley as does Bernie Sanders, as does a number of us that this should have the $1200 payments’

EXCERPT:

MERKLEY: “There’s always the concern that a bill will be brought to us and that will be asked to vote on it within a few hours in which case it'll be all sorts of special favors stuck into it that we’ll discover days later without the media or all of us having a chance to discover them. I find myself agreeing completely with Josh Hawley as does Bernie Sanders, as does a number of us that this should have the $1,200 payments, individual payments. Also that the unemployment insurance should be increased. And I must say that the idea that you’re going to say negligence doesn’t matter for companies that deliberately knew that they were exposing their workers or their customers to high risk is completely unacceptable. So there’s a real effort to massage that and make sure that legitimate claims have a chance to be heard.”
