Remarks as Prepared for Delivery

“Let's face it. Coronavirus has totally disrupted our lives - across the country in every community and certainly around the globe. To all of us, it's frightening. It's a nightmare. This bill is a partial response to end that disruption. It provides our medical workers and hospitals, small businesses, and virtually every family needed assistance. So to you who oppose this bill, please, please stand down. We can't wait another day to help. Don't add to this disruption by, in fact, being a disrupter. Be a leader.”
