Mcconnell ‘holding All The Hostage Of The Nation’ In Stimulus: Seattle Mayor

Published

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan has accused Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of “holding the whole nation hostage” over a further COVID-19 stimulus package as she called for more relief to be signed off.

It has been nearly eight months since the last such bill, the CARES Act, was signed off—with an ongoing stalemate surrounding more measures being approved.

Democrat figureheads have called for McConnell to negotiate further to facilitate a bipartisan deal, with plans thus far having failed to garner enough cross-party support to make their way through both the House and the Senate.

McConnell has looked to shift the blame for this to Democrats, who have rejected slimmed-down deals, though they have criticized his lack of compromise.

In comments reported by KOMO News, Durkan said: “The person who is holding up right now is Mitch McConnell.

“It’s a single individual, from Kentucky, who is holding the whole nation hostage. I think it’s unforgivable.”
