Johnson Statement on Senate Coronavirus Relief Bill

WASHINGTON — U.S. Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said the following Thursday after Senate Democrats, again, blocked a coronavirus relief bill that would help unemployed workers and small businesses:

“It is unfortunate Democrats won’t take yes for an answer. Once again, they have taken the position it’s either their way or the highway. Just because Republicans wouldn’t agree to spend $3 trillion and give Democrats everything they demanded, unemployed workers won’t get additional federal unemployment benefits and small businesses won’t get needed financial support. What a shame.”
