Blumenthal: 4th And 5th Coronavirus Stimulus Might Be Needed To Fix 'Mistakes' In $2 Trillion Bill

Some lawmakers are saying a fourth and fifth economic stimulus package are coming. Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), a member of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, told Just the News he’s prepared for the chamber to work on a phase four and five stimulus package after Congress passes this third round, which is poised to become the largest stimulus in U.S. history. “We're going to get this package done. The point is to get it done quickly, but get it done right. Still, it won't be perfect, and my view is there may well be a need for a fourth package, maybe even a fifth package,” Blumenthal said on Tuesday after speaking with business leaders in Connecticut about coronavirus. “We ought to be prepared to vote if necessary – maybe remotely. I'm prepared to come back to Washington,” he added.

Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.), a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, discussed the status of the coronavirus economic relief bill Tuesday on a tele-conference with constituents. “I’m hoping that we will be back to you many times in the days ahead to talk about what’s in this bill,” Beyer said, referencing the negotiations between the White House and congressional leaders on the third relief bill. Beyer thinks parts of the stimulus package will fail to address all of the economic fallout from the pandemic, so more stimulus packages will be needed. “We know this bill is going to be very good. It’s going to be over $2 trillion but it’s not going to be enough. We will have missed some people in certain places – things that just didn’t jump out to us initially,” Beyer said. "The mission of our personal team and the Joint Economic Committee will be to look at where this bill fails because there will be a coronavirus package four and five, and they will be the ones that fix the mistakes we made in two and three until we get it right,” Beyer continued.

Blumenthal addressed the challenges of senators coming back to Washington to vote on additional stimulus packages, saying he would support using unanimous consent to pass the bills. Unanimous consent does not require a quorum for a vote, so members would not need to cast an in-person vote. “There's also talk about how we might vote remotely, but we have to change the rules to do it. Unanimous consent may be another means of doing a fifth and sixth package,” he said. “We are working in a very bipartisan way and so the idea of unanimous consent is hardly out of the realm of possibility. I hope that we can come together as a nation and certainly we should come together as a Congress,” Blumenthal also said.

The Grayzone’s Max Blumenthal and the Embassy Protection Collective address the media after meeting with President Nicolás Maduro at Miraflores palace in Caracas, Venezuela.
By Max Blumenthal

Transcript
I am representing, alongside my colleagues Anya Parampil and Ben Norton, an independent media organization with no formal relationship to this government or any other government.

We are here because our government, and a corporate media which acts as an arm of its foreign policy, is pursuing a dangerous and catastrophic policy of siege and regime change.

We have seen the catastrophes that this same policy has caused for Central America, for Iraq, for Libya, for Syria, and for so many people across the world, in Korea, and elsewhere. And we are here to renounce this policy.

We are here as citizens and also as journalists, to break the blockade that our government has put not only on this government, but on relations between the American people and the Venezuelan people seeking to build a new society through the Bolivarian Revolution.

And it is for that same reason that we participated in an Embassy Protection Collective to not only defend the Venezuelan embassy, but to defend the principles of international law and the basic truth about this regime change policy.

We have absolutely no fear of any attack that occurs in the media or from our own government because we decided that the people of Venezuela, who are suffering under siege, should have relations with the people from America, and that we should listen and have a dialogue with each other.

We have no fear of any of the intimidation. And as you saw, when we were inside and outside the embassy, there was absolutely no fear of any attack or intimation.

So because our government, including many self-proclaimed progressives, refuses to sit down in dialogue with this government, and because our media refuses to go to the barrios and to meet with the campesinos who are suffering under sanctions, it is our job to do that for them.

We have come here in the spirit of peace and diplomacy, and we will return to our country to tell the truth about the crushing effects of sanctions, but also the gains of this revolution.

Because in our country there are millions of people — as President Maduro said in our meeting, and which he understands — there are millions of people suffering without homes, without hope; students with debts they can’t pay off; people who can’t afford healthcare. And we need a revolution in our country. We too need to construct a new society, and a new media.

Nuestra lucha es la misma. Este es nuestro mensaje a usted. (Our struggle is the same. This is our message to you.)

Because we love the people of our country in the United States, because of our love for our neighbors and our communities, and because of our love for the people that we have met in this country, and because of our hatred for an empire which also abuses our neighbors and our communities, we believe that regime change begins at home. Thank you.

President Trump SLAMS "Da Nang Dick" Blumenthal & "Sleepy Joe Biden" 10/6/18

President Donald Trump said during a Saturday night rally in Topeka Kansas that he is “dreaming” of running against Democrats in the 2020 presidential election.
“Sleepy Joe Biden, who ran for president two or three times … I think I remember a third time in there. But he had 1 percent with an arrow pointing left … and then Obama took him off the trash heap,” Trump continued. “Remember he challenged me to a fight?” “I would love that. That wouldn’t last long. That would not last long,” Trump said, flexing his bicep and joking that he could win the fight by merely blowing Biden over.
