Job Creators Network Reacts to Dem Obstruction of CARES Act

Washington, D.C. (March 22, 2020)— Tonight, Senate Democrats blocked the cloture vote to proceed on the CARES Act, the much-needed relief package to keep the economy afloat.

Alfredo Ortiz, President and CEO of the Job Creators Network, released the following statement:

“The Democrats put partisan interests ahead of what’s good for the nation by blocking the cloture vote this evening to proceed on the CARES Act. Millions of small businesses and employees around the country need the relief that this bill offered. Small businesses will know who is to blame for holding up the loans and grants they require to stay operational and pay their employees. April 1st is right around the corner and in the real world that is when rent, car, and mortgage payments are due. Ordinary Americans need the checks that the CARES Act would provide now, not a month or two from now. Millionaires like Pelosi and Schumer obviously don’t need to worry about these concerns facing their constituents. It’s time they stop playing chicken with the livelihoods of millions of Americans just so they can stick it to Trump.”
