Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Ali Velshi: GOP Showing 'Cruelty' With Covid Relief Objections”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

MSNBC’s Ali Velshi guest-hosted The Last Word on Friday and said Republicans are throwing out “weak excuses” opposing the covid relief bill to mask their “cruelty.”

Velshi covered the agreement Democrats reached with Joe Manchin on unemployment benefits before slamming Republicans — Ron Johnson in particular — for trying to delay and weaken the legislation “at a time of unparalleled crisis.”

“What are Republicans doing?” he asked. “They are fighting tooth and nail to get concessions that will weaken the economic assistance given to Americans in need. That’s what this bill is. Why? Who do Republicans really represent here?”

He went through some of the data on the millions of Americans and thousands of small businesses in need, as well as polling showing support for the covid relief package and even a majority of Republicans supporting the $1400 stimulus payments.

Velshi said concerns about being fiscally conservative are just “weak excuses,” arguing this is really about “cruelty.”
