As you‚Äôre well aware, a coronavirus stimulus package has been held up in Congress because Democrats have been trying to jam funding for so very many progressive pet ‚Äúcauses‚ÄĚ into the bill (aka ‚ÄúPORK‚ÄĚ). Rep. Jerrold Nadler asking for $4 BILLION in funding for New York City‚Äôs nonprofit museums is just the latest example.
But now the two sides have gotten closer, and Schumer summed it up this way:
Schumer says talks on coronavirus bill are now on the 2 yard line.

Republican Sen. Tom Cotton accurately summed up Schumer‚Äôs comments this way:
Let me translate from Chuck-speak: ‚ÄúThere‚Äôs no deal because Democrats are *still* putting a liberal wish list over American lives & jobs, but I want you to blame McConnell.‚ÄĚ https://t.co/ZG5KTZIkTg

We have a winner!
Lincoln described how democrats used to place the blame on republicans: ‚Äúa highwayman holds a pistol to my ear, and mutters through his teeth, ‚ÄėStand and deliver [give me your money], or I shall kill you, and then you will be a murderer!‚Äô‚ÄĚ https://t.co/kKBAje6iSi
