Tom Cotton: Democrats Willing To Risk Your Life And Your Job For “Radical Left Wing Wishlist”

 

Sen. Tom Cotton spoke out on the Senate floor about some of the amendments Democrats want to add to the coronavirus response bill.

“There is a good bill, a bill that was negotiated in good faith over the weekend with many Democrats… that they are now blocking, that they will not even start debate on because of ideological wish-list items,” Cotton said. “It is disgraceful, and it is dangerous to the lives of our people and their economic well-being.”

“Democrats want to impose quotas for race and sex on corporate boards,” Cotton said. “Is that going to stop anyone from getting sick from coronavirus?”

“This report is correct. Pelosi & Schumer are willing to risk your life, your job, your retirement savings for a radical, left-wing wish list that has nothing to do with this virus. Disgraceful,” Cotton said on Twitter on Monday afternoon.

Cotton also listed some of the items:
