Wait, who said that?

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday that Congress should approve a coronavirus relief package before the end of the year, a shift from his recent suggestion that a measure was more likely early next year.

During a press conference in Kentucky a day after he won reelection, McConnell expressed optimism that negotiators could reach a deal post-election. The outcome of the presidential contest and control of the Senate remains unknown, though final results are expected within the coming days if not sooner.

“We need another rescue package,” the Kentucky Republican said. “Hopefully the partisan passions that prevented us from doing another rescue package will subside with the election and I think we need to do it and I think we need to do it before the end of the year.”

I think that Mitch McConnell is going to obstruct just about everything that Joe Biden and the Democrats try to implement, so I am a little surprised that he is onboard for getting this done. 

I think the Dems should jump on it and push it through just as quickly as possible. Because we need this, desperately.

Assuming of course that this is not just McConnell channeling Lucy with the football.
