” House Democrats passed a detailed coronavirus relief bill in May. Republicans waited,” the board recalled. “Now, with federal economic help expiring at month’s end, they can not concur among themselves on a plan, let alone forge a compromise with Democrats.”
” The GOP runs out time, and there is no sensible alternative to continuing enormous federal aid,” the op-ed continued, noting how “numerous” Republican senators appear to really prefer the expense.
It included: “Republicans should admit the apparent and get a bill passed, right away.”
