WASHINGTON — Today, U.S. Senator Chris Coons (D-Del.) joined FOX and Friends to discuss the latest updates on the negotiations on a third COVID-19 response package. Yesterday, Senator Coons and all other Senate Democrats voted against the Republican-authored coronavirus response package.
“This is going to be the single largest stimulus package in American history. So while I understand there is some concern and frustration that as of right now, 7:20 in the morning on Monday, we don't have it all done, I think we will get this done. If you look back to last week, Brian, a $104 billion package came together from concept to drafting to passage to signing by President Trump in record time,” said Senator Coons. “This is a huge bill. If we didn't have some accountability and transparency on that $500 billion, I would expect the people of Delaware to be mad at me. But we should make the progress today to get this out, and I hope the markets get that sense of confidence from those of us working hard here.”
