The Hill: Senate Democrats block GOP relief bill
From The Hill:
Senate Democrats blocked a GOP coronavirus bill on Thursday amid a deep stalemate over the next relief package.
Senators voted 52-47 on the roughly $500 billion Republican bill, which marked the first coronavirus-related legislation the chamber has voted on since it passed a $484 billion package in April.
The vote handed a symbolic victory to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who spent weeks haggling with Republicans and the White House over the contours of the pared-down GOP bill as he sought to overcome deep divisions over the path forward.
