Democrats Introduce New Coronavirus Relief Bill

March 31, 2020
Capitol Hill

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) introduced a new coronavirus relief bill earlier today that would mandate that all Republicans self-quarantine and shelter-in-place “indefinitely.” After formal presentation of the legislation, Speaker Pelosi said, “This much needed bill would provide the social-distancing we need, protecting our Republican friends even as we Democrats selflessly and courageously expose ourselves to disease here in Congress while we continue to conduct the nation’s vital business for the good of the people.”
The bill would also “ban the gathering of more than five conservatives in any one general location in perpetuity/until the end of time,” so that they “don’t infect college campuses, media outlets or polling places.”
Pelosi and Schumer also strongly suggested it would be “best for the country” to have a national lockdown put in place until Monday, November 2nd.
