Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio slammed Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for leaving Washington this weekend to go home to Kentucky.
The leftist New Yorkers also demanded that McConnell pass the pork-filled coronavirus stimulus bill “as-is” as soon as possible.
“It was disgraceful that Leader McConnell left town last night,” Schumer said Saturday from New York City. Chuck also left Washington for the weekend, so what is he complaining about?
Schumer continued: “We could have had this done already, but he left. I am calling on [Mitch McConnell] to move this package immediately when we return on Monday — as is.”
It was wise for McConnell, 78, to rest at home over the weekend since he’s at high risk for contracting the coronavirus because of his age.
Besides, the Senate will not consider the bill until Monday, so why should McConnell have stayed in Washington over the weekend? The multi-billion-dollar coronavirus relief bill was rammed through the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives at 1 a.m. Saturday.
New York City’s Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio also demanded that the GOP-controlled Senate pass the pork-filled coronavirus aid package immediately. “This is something that actually is progress and is moving,” de Blasio said.
De Blasio is a city mayor. He’s in no position to mandate action on FEDERAL government matters. Mayor de Blasio should worry more about the rampant crime and homelessness festering under his failed leadership than lecturing U.S. senators.

This kind of thuggery spiked dramatically under Democrat Bill de Blasio. These crimes did not happen in such huge numbers under Republican mayor Rudy Giuliani or ex-Republican Mike Bloomberg.

As BizPac Review reported, 40 Republicans voted against the sweeping coronavirus aid package at 1 a.m. Saturday (March 14).
However, the “Families First Coronavirus Response Act” passed in the House by a vote of 363-40.
The 40 Republicans who opposed the measure sounded the alarm after Speaker Nancy Pelosi exploited the virus to expand and permanently change welfare programs and to make abortion easier.
Republicans argued that the Democrats are using the coronavirus to emotionally blackmail them into making permanent changes to expand welfare and abortion.
The 40 Republicans added that they could not vote on a bill without being given enough time to read it. The House only gave its members an hour to read the 110-page bill before they voted on it.
The final text of the bill was publicly released at 11:57 pm. The Dems (and Republicans) in the House passed it at 1 a.m. Saturday (March 14).
Do you really believe “lawmakers” like barmaid Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez actually read 110 pages of dull legal text in 1 hour?
The Senate is expected to take up the bill on Monday. However, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell already signaled his opposition to the porcine package last week, when he slammed it as “an ideological wish list that was not tailored closely to the circumstances.”
McConnell said from the Senate floor: “Instead of focusing on immediate relief to affected individuals, families and businesses, the House Democrats chose to wander into various areas of policy that are barely related — if at all — to the issue before us.”
Republican Richard Shelby — the chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee — called the House bill full of “Christmas tree ornaments.”
“The House is loading it up with stuff that’s probably not going to protect anybody,” he said. Senator Shelby said the bill “as it’s written” now is unacceptable.
