Washington, DC (October 13, 2020) — Today, Senate Majority Leader McConnell said next week the Senate will consider a stimulus bill that will include funding for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).
“This is outstanding news for America’s small business community. The PPP is one of the most successful government programs of all time – saving at least 51 million jobs. The Democrats have no excuse for opposing it – especially since they helped create it. Small businesses are leading America’s recovery, and with extra PPP funding, our position will be even stronger. We thank Leader McConnell for keeping his commitment to small businesses. Speaker Pelosi and Senator Schumer are holding small businesses hostage for their Democratic wish list. The Democrats need to put politics aside and support McConnell’s bill.”
