Govt Putting Virus Package Together; Biden Sweeps Primaries

This will be a busy weekend in Washington where Senate Leader Mitch McConnell has vowed to work Saturday and Sunday to get a Coronavirus Emergency bill to the floor on Monday. He wants to make sure that a handful of Senators on either side won't be able to delay the bill with a filibuster so he may have a vote as early as Saturday.

Negotiations are currently being held between the Senate Republicans and Democrats and the White House. To stop a filibuster and speed passage it will require 60 votes but at this point it isn’t clear McConnell can even count on all 53 Republican senators, so he will need the Democrats. Furthermore, any bill will need to be bipartisan to have any chance in the Democratic-controlled House. Both Senator Chuck Schumer and Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that the McConnell bill released on Thursday was too “business friendly” and needed a lot more help for workers.
