McConnell Says Congress Should Pass Economic Relief Bill This Year WSJ Updated Nov. 4, 2020 4:00 pm ET
Senate majority leader says he supports aid to schools, hospitals and small businesses, but not a more sweeping Democratic proposal

WASHINGTON--Congress should pass a new economic-relief package this year, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Wednesday, as prospects for Democrats' multitrillion-dollar stimulus bill faded along with their chances for full control of the government.

Lawmakers have been deadlocked for months over further aid, with Republicans insisting on liability protections for businesses and Democrats seeking aid for state and local governments. With the outcome of Tuesday's elections still in doubt, Mr. McConnell (R., Ky.) signaled that he would try to move this year, with President Trump assured of still being in office for at least that time.

"We need another rescue package," Mr. McConnell said in Kentucky. "Hopefully the partisan passions that prevented us from doing another rescue package will subside with the election. We need to do it, and I think we need to do it before the end of the year."


For what it is worth.

"It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
