PROBLEM SOLVERS CAUCUS CO-CHAIRS STATEMENT ON GETTING BACK TO WORK TOWARD A BIPARTISAN COVID-19 RELIEF DEAL
Washington, November 18, 2020
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Problem Solvers Caucus Co-Chairs Tom Reed (NY-23) and Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) released the following statement regarding the need for COVID-19 relief.
“Election Day has come and gone, and the American people — our families, small businesses, and local communities — are all still suffering. It has been sixty-five days since the Problem Solvers Caucus introduced our framework for a bipartisan COVID-19 relief package. Prior to the election, all parties at the negotiating table expressed a readiness to get a bipartisan deal done, and yet the American people are still waiting to receive the relief they deserve. We cannot delay any longer. After meeting with Senators from both parties and Administration officials earlier this week, it is clear that there is an opportunity to get bipartisan, urgently-needed assistance to American families and small businesses.
We need negotiators from both sides to come to the table willing to compromise and fully engage to get a deal across the finish line.”
