Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., chairman of the Senate Republican Congress, on Sunday said there was a “consensus” on another stimulus bill in response to continuing hardships caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
In an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Barrasso said the bill could be brought up “in the next couple of weeks.”
“There's a consensus,” he said.
“What I believe needs to be in it — and I think your viewers will agree — number one: It has to focus on getting people back to work, and children back in school.
“Number two, it has to focus on saving lives and to me that means more testing, better treatment, and then of course, a vaccine, And finally, we need to provide the liability insurance for our healthcare workers, for our mom and pop small businesses, and for our schools so they can all open in a good way.”
According to Barrasso, the bill also needs to ensure that although people “are cared for, “we cannot continue to pay people more to sit at home than to go to work.”
“We have so many help wanted signs around Wyoming and the country we need to do all we can to get people back to work and help them earn that paycheck,” he declared.
