We will further COVID aid without GOP if we must - Schumer

United States Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (pictured) stated on Tuesday that the Democratic party stands ready to pass the coronavirus stimulus package, proposed by US President Joe Biden, with or without the support from their Republican party counterparts.

Schumer invited the Republicans to work with the Democrats in order to ensure "bipartisan support" to the relief package, but added that "the work must move forward" even if it means doing it "without the [GOP] if we must."

Biden unveiled the day before that he plans to present his COVID stimulus bill to Congress in the coming weeks, while Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell asserted that the president's suggestion "misses the mark."
