Description

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell touted a bipartisan deal to provide emergency funds in response to the new coronavirus pandemic and committed to passing the legislation Wednesday, though some in his caucus have raised objections to a key provision. If passed, the bill would provide cash payments to Americans, help to struggling small businesses and more resources to state and local governments, as well as to hospitals. It also includes a number of accountability measures meant to ensure the funds are used responsibly.

This episode: campaign correspondent Asma Khalid, congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell, and chief economics correspondent Scott Horsley.
