At long last, Democratic Sen. Cory Booker can rest easy knowing that “we finally have a COVID-19 relief package”:
After seven months of Mitch McConnell's obstruction, we finally have a COVID-19 relief package.
This bill is a step in the right direction, but there's more work left to be done.
It is clear that Congress will need to provide additional aid in the months to come.

Hold up, Cory. Whose obstruction, now?

And Cory appears to think that blaming Mitch McConnell for Democrats’ obstruction will be enough to make everyone forget what hot garbage the “relief package” is.
It’s a bold strategy. Let’s see how it’s working out for him:
This is not a step in the right direction at all

It’s a slap in the face actually.

$600? That won't cover much of anything in Newark @CoryBooker WTF!!! Stop the F'n victory lap and do the right thing by taking Pork out of that bill.

Sometimes…it's best to say nothing. All of you, should be ashamed as I bet your last dinner out, or 2…cost more than this. This does not pay rent anywhere in america and may just feed you, and get some gas when you are sleeping in your car.

In the MONTHS to come??? We already waited months for pretty much crumbs. How about you guys get working on the next deal NOW. This one was a failure. 600 dollars is barely enough to get through one month.. you guys are failing us and people are suffering when they shouldnt be.

This is not a step in the right direction 🤦🏾♀️ what is wrong with y'all (Dems) with this BS message. This is a sham relief bill and, for y'all to keep saying it's a step in the right direction is foul. Stop disrespecting us. If y'all went okie doke there is no help on the way. FOH!

And you take no responsibility for not getting it done sooner?? Typical of you. Where will you be vacationing for Christmas after telling your constituents to just let down?

You all let us down. This is shameful.
