Sen. Schumer Fundraises Off of 'Republican Failures' As Democrats Stall Paycheck Protection Funding

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) spent Thursday fundraising off of COVID-19, and the gridlock over small business relief funding on Capitol Hill. In a fundraising email for Montana Governor Steve Bullock’s (D-MT) Senate campaign, Sen. Schumer called for “real leadership,” and claimed that “the Republican-led majority is failing too many Americans when we need help the most.”


Fundraising off of COVID-19 is nothing new for Sen. Schumer and his allies, but the minority leader’s pitch is deliberately misleading. The GOP majority, led by Majority Leader McConnell, have championed the effort to bring economic relief to Americans who need it most. 

It was Sen. Schumer’s minority caucus in the Senate that successfully blocked additional funding for the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), on account of partisan demands made by Sen. Schumer and Speaker Pelosi. Rather than unify with colleagues across the aisle, in support of America’s small business owners and employees, Democrats torpedoed Leader McConnell’s bill to legislate more funding for PPP. 

Democratic leadership claims that PPP is not working effectively, but as the SBA reports, and given that PPP exhausted the original funds, Americans working in the small business sector are seeing relief.


Sen. Schumer's partisan games, at the expense of American workers, may be growing unpopular among Democrats, though. On Thursday, two Democratic Senators broke with the minority leader and pushed for the additional PPP funding to be passed:


Sen. Schumer continues to gaslight the American people over what is truly occurring on Capitol Hill; his party is not on the side of the American worker. While Republicans work to deliver tangible aid to the American people, Sen. Schumer misleads voters and blocks critical funding for Americans who are in the most dire need of relief.
