Schumer Statement On Latest Unemployment Numbers And Senate Republicans’ Focus On Chasing Conspiracy Theories

May 28, 2020

Washington, D.C. – Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer released the following statement today in response to reporting on the latest unemployment numbers:

“The cost of Republican inaction grows every day. More than 100,000 Americans have lost their lives and the number that have filed for unemployment has surpassed 40 million, but Senator McConnell and Senate Republicans are still more focused on peddling conspiracy theories to prop up President Trump than they are helping the American people reeling from the health and economic crises. Senate Republicans ought to stop sitting on their hands and work in a bipartisan way to provide the immediate help workers and families need.”
