Democrats Still Won’t Approve Trump’s Payroll Tax Cut, Despite Coronavirus Spread

( – For all the talk from the Democrats about how the president isn’t doing enough to stop the coronavirus outbreak causing major disruptions to the economy, they don’t seem all that willing to help him pass measures that would help American businesses and workers.

President Trump recently announced his proposal of eliminating payroll tax until the end of the year, giving workers and businesses financial relief while the coronavirus impacts the economy. It is part of a wider stimulus package being developed by the White House to help ease the burden on businesses, but the Democrats just won’t pass it.

“If you want to get money into the hands of people quickly & efficiently, let them have the full money that they earned, APPROVE A PAYROLL TAX CUT until the end of the year, December 31,” the president tweeted on Friday.

The president even used a recent Oval Office address to the nation to call on the Democrats to pass the proposal but to no avail.

Trump criticized the Chair of the Federal Reserve, Jay Powell, as well as the Democrats. In another Friday tweet, he said, “The Federal Reserve must FINALLY lower the Fed Rate to something comparable to their competitor Central Banks.”

The president aims to delay the April 15 deadline for income tax filing until the end of the year. This would offer considerable relief for individuals and small businesses all over the country. The Trump administration has also reportedly discussed offering bailouts for industries that have been hit particularly hard.

While the president tries to make lives easier for working Americans, the Democrats keep standing in the way. Nancy Pelosi and Congressional Democrats continue to refuse to pass the proposal and are instead trying to sneak abortion legislation into urgent coronavirus bills.
