It was December 2020. The House of Representatives had just passed a $2,000 covid relief package for every American who qualified.The state of Kentucky was in the middle of a donation campaign to raise enough money to give poor citizens of Kentucky a $300 covid relief check.Mitch McConnell was the Senate Leader. The House bill that would give suffering Americans some relief got to McConnell's desk. Even Donald Trump had voiced his support for the relief package. But Mitch killed the bill. Yes! He refused to even put it up for a Senate vote for fear it just might pass. Mitch McConnell is from Kentucky, his state couldn't even afford to give their poor citizens $300. Mitch McConnell didn’t care. He watched them suffer. They had just reelected him. He wouldn't be needing them again until the next election! That is GOP agenda in a nutshell.
