U.S. Senator John Barrasso spoke during Senate session on Monday
The United States Senate is still working on a Covid-19 stimulus plan. Efforts to move forward with a plan failed for the second time on Monday.
The aid bill needs more votes in order to move it forward. The Senate is scheduled to be back in session on Tuesday morning.
United States Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) weighed in during the discussion on Monday. He said, "Our economy can not be unleashed again until after we get the healthcare component behind us. But our colleagues, our friends, our neighbors, the people that we know in our home states woke up today -- woke up today -- not being able to go to work. Not being able to know if they're going to have a paycheck, not being able to know if they're going to pay their bills. Not being able to know if they're going to feed their families. Not being able to know if they're going to get food if it's available. If they can have the money to pay for it. And yet, we're ready to provide relief. They need it immediately."
