Good morning. As the COVID-19 pandemic takes a toll on life in America, our team at Future Majority is tracking the latest updates:
Senate Republicans released their next round of COVID-19 relief:
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his caucus in the Senate unveiled their $1 trillion COVID-19 relief package, which will serve as the marker for negotiations with Democrats.
The $1 trillion is far below the $3 trillion that House Democrats passed in the HEROES Act back in May. Notably, the Republican plan reduced the unemployment bonus from $600-per-week to $200-per-week. That supplement is set to expire on the 31st.
Dr. Fauci is repeating a grim warning:
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease doctor, is again warning that thousands more Americans could die due to the virus in the coming months:
"If you look at the deaths as they're occurring right now -- about 1,000 per day -- unless we get our arms around this and get it suppressed, we are going to have further suffering and further death.”
"That's the reason why, as I've often said many, many times, there are things that we can do right now in the absence of a vaccine that can turn us around."
Trump’s job approval continues to be under water:
As the virus continues to spread, and the economy is slow to recover, President Trump’s job approval persists at double-digits under water. A new Harvard-Harris poll has his approval at 44% and his disapproval at 56%, a 12-point deficit. That disapproval is even higher among independent voters (60%).
67% of voters say that the country is on the wrong track, including 50% of Republicans.
