McConnell: ‘We Should Not Pay People More To Stay Home Than We Pay People Who Continue Working’

‘We should not be taxing the essential workers who kept working so the government can pay their neighbors a higher salary to stay home’
By Grabien Staff

EXCERPT:

McCONNELL: “But then when it is time to actually make a law, Democrats would rather keep political issues alive than find a bipartisan way to resolve them. Take the issue of additional federal unemployment insurance. For weeks now, it has been clear to majority of Americans that we should not pay people more to stay home then we pay people who continue working. Should we have generous unemployment insurance in this crisis? Of course. The Republicans want to continue the federal supplement at eight times the level that the Democrats themselves put in place during the last recession. But obviously we should not be taxing the essential workers who kept working so that the government can pay their neighbors a higher salary to stay home. Let me say that again. We should not be taxing the essential workers who have kept working so the government can pay their neighbors a higher salary to stay home."
