Democrats Put Partisan Politics Ahead of Coronavirus Aid

LANSING, Mich., March 23, 2020 – As Michigan and the nation continue to face one of the worst health crises in United States history, Democrats continue to play partisan politics. CNN reported Monday that the Democrat Super PAC, Priorities USA, has launched a $6 million ad campaign attacking President Trump's response to the coronavirus pandemic.

This comes on the heels of Senate Majority PAC, with ties to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Gary Peters, launching false attack ads on Republican senate candidate John James healthcare position.

Amidst the coronavirus crisis Democrats - including Michigan's Gary Peters - blocked a $1.8 trillion economic stabilization package for the second time Monday afternoon, in an attempt to get unreasonable concessions like solar power tax credits and a study of global warming. 

"The American people desperately need aid in these trying times, yet Democrats can’t overcome their disdain for the president and refuse to work together to solve this crisis." said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. "Now is the time for results, not partisan politics. Democrats need to drop the negative ads and unrealistic policy objectives and work with Republicans to get the American people the relief they deserve."
