Senate OANDemocrats said they’re looking to pass a coronavirus relief package without Republican support.

Majority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D) spoke on the Senate floor Thursday. He announced the upper chamber will begin considering a Democrat-led COVID relief bill next week.

Meanwhile, Republicans have criticized Joe Biden’s expensive proposal as a Democrat wishlist. Schumer added Democrats will seek to pass the $1.9 trillion bill on their own if Republicans “don’t recognize big action” must be taken.

“We are in the midst of a once in a century crisis,” Schumer stated. “It requires a once in a century effort to overcome it. The dangers of undershooting our response are far greater than overshooting.”

Although a bill typically requires 60 votes to advance, Democrats are seeking to pass the legislation through “budget reconciliation,” which only requires a simple majority. The Senate is currently split 50-50, with Vice President Kamala Harris poised to be the tie-breaking vote.
