Senator Barrasso Slams Schumer And Pelosi: ‘Slowed Down’ Helping America To Get Their Wishlist Met

Sen. John Barrasso told Maria Bartiromo on Fox News that Democratic leaders House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer have “slowed down” the federal government’s ability to get Americans financial help during the coronavirus crisis.

He made the remarks in response to Maria Bartiromo asking him about the Paycheck Protection Program, which ran out of money last week after Senate Democrats refused to replenish it.

“There are small businesses and paychecks needing to be gotten taken care of,” Barrasso said. “There are people who are still applying for these loans. I see it in Wyoming. It’s been very successful, $350 billion already spent. It’s helped 15 million Americans stay on the payroll.”

“The money — we had a vote Friday, and the Democrats blocked it. The money in that program is really paychecks for hardworking Americans, people who work for small businesses, which is over half of all Americans,” Barrasso continued. “I heard earlier on the news that Mnuchin and Schumer and Pelosi are working on a deal. Every Republican is going to want to scrutinize that, because we know that, when Schumer and Pelosi are involved, we know they slowed down the CARES Act because they wanted their wish list included.”
