McConnell, Senate Republicans speak to press

GOING ON THERE I'LL BE TALKING TO THE SPEAKER ABOUT THAT AS WELL. I THINK BOTH SIDES. THANK IT WOULD BE. BETTER TO DO. AN OMNIBUS APPROPRIATION BILL BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR RATHER ANOTHER SHORT TERM- TULSA OKLA WE CAN GET THERE. ON THE POSSIBILITY OF ANOTHER CORONAVIRUS PACKAGE. IT SEEMS TO ME THAT WITH SIX POINT 9% UNEMPLOYMENT. A THIRD QUARTER GDP GROWTH OF ASTONISHING PROPORTIONS. THAT EVEN THOUGH WE STILL HAVE. SHOULD NEVER GOT ECONOMIC PROBLEMS WE NEED TO THINK ABOUT IT WE'RE GONNA COME UP WITH A BIPARTISAN PACKAGE HERE ABOUT WHAT SIZE IS APPROPRIATE SINCE YOU MAY. THAT SNAG THAT HUNG US UP FOR MONTHS IS STILL THERE. I DON'T THINK THE CURRENT SITUATION. DEMANDS MULTI TRILLION DOLLAR PACKAGE SO I THINK IT SHOULD BE HIGHLY TARGETED. VERY SIMILAR TO WHAT I PUT ON THE FLOOR BOTH IN OCTOBER AND SEPTEMBER AND OF COURSE WE'RE ALL EXCITED ABOUT.

THE VISOR VACCINE ANNOUNCEMENT YESTERDAY CENTER BLOCK KNOWS AN AWFUL LOT ABOUT THAT. I THANK. THE COUNTRY SHOULD HAVE A SENSE OF RELIEF THAT WE MAY BE ABLE TO FINALLY SEE THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL. WITH REGARD. A TO THIS AWFUL VIRUS. IN THE MEANTIME WE'RE ALL TRYING TO EMPHASIZE AS ALL OF US OUT HERE IN THE SENATE SINCE THE FIRST OF MAY UNTIL WE- GET. SHOULD NEVER GOT NUMBER OF AMERICANS- THE VACCINE. WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO R. MASS FROM PROCTER SOCIAL DISTANCING AND TRY TO BE A GOOD EXAMPLE FOR THE REST OF THE COUNTRY. THANK YOU LATER AND- ONE OF THANK MY COLLEAGUES AGAIN FOR THE PRIVILEGE OF SERVING WEAPON LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING. WITH THIS- LEADERSHIP TEAM IN THE NEXT CONGRESS WE HAVE A LOT OF WORK AHEAD OF US. WHEN IT COMES TO- CONTINUE TO DEAL WITH THE PANDEMIC COVID RELIEF AND- ADVANCING A PRO JOBS PRO GROWTH AGENDA.

FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. AND I'M GLAD THE ELECTION IS BEHIND US I THINK WE ALL ARE- I THINK THERE WERE AT LEAST. THREE TAKEAWAYS FROM THE ELECTION- ONE WAS THAT THERE. WAS NOT A BLUE WAVE THERE WASN'T EVEN A BLUE RIPPLE- I THINK THAT THE ELECTION RESULTS MADE IT CLEAR THAT A LOT OF WHAT THE DEMOCRATS POLLSTERS- FOLKS IN THE MEDIA WARS WOULD SUGGESTING- WAS GOING TO HAPPEN. DID NOT HAPPEN AT ALL- SECONDLY IT WAS A REJECTION OF THE FAR LEFT. SCHUMER PELOSI AOC AGENDA. AND THIRD IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED WITH NOT A SINGLE REPUBLICAN LOSING A HOUSE RACE. ACTUALLY GAINING SEATS IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. NOT A SINGLE STATE LEGISLATURE FLIPPING IN FACT REPUBLICANS. ARE GAINING GROUND IN THE STATE LEGISLATURES. AND I'M QUITE CONFIDENT THAT AFTER- GEORGIA WE ARE GOING TO BE IN THE MAJORITY HERE. IN THE UNITED STATES SENATE IT REALLY WAS A VALIDATION. OF THE THINGS THAT THE REPUBLICAN- MAJORITY AND REPUBLICAN PARTY ARE DOING TO TRY TO VANSON FURTHER. THE INTEREST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. SO HAVING. TAKEN ALL THAT INTO PERSPECTIVE I THINK NOW WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY- TO MOVE FOR THE PRESIDENTIAL RACES WILL BE RESOLVED AT SOME POINT- BUT THERE'S A LOT OF WORK THAT WE HAVE TO DO FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

AND I LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING. WITH OUR TEAM WITH OUR MEMBERS HOPEFULLY WITH DEMOCRATS TO DECIDE THAT THEY WANT TO WORK WITH US NOW THAT IT'S BEEN. MADE CLEAR THAT WHAT THEY WERE TRYING TO PUT FORWARD. IS NOT WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT TO SEE HAPPEN HERE. THAT WE CAN GET SOME GOOD THINGS DONE THAT WE CAN DEAL WITH THE ONGOING CRISIS IN FRONT OF US WITH RESPECT TO PANDEMIC. BEFORE THE END OF YOUR FROM THE GOVERNMENT HOPEFULLY TO DEFENSE AUTHORIZATION BILL DONE. AND THEN- T. SOME THINGS UP TO TAKE TO GET TO WORK NEXT NEXT YEAR FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. WHAT WILL LATER THANKS FOR MENTIONING THE VACCINES I DO THINK THAT NOW WOULD BE ON THE ELECTION THAT A LOT OF THE SKEPTICISM THAT PEOPLE HAD. ABOUT THE VACCINE EFFORT WILL GO AWAY ONCE PEOPLE LOOK SERIOUSLY AT THIS I THINK THEY'RE GOING TO SEE THAT FRANKLY.

THE ADMINISTRATION AND THE CONGRESS CONGRESS PROVIDING EIGHTEEN BILLION DOLLARS A TO INVEST IN VACCINES AND THERAPEUTICS IN ABOUT TWELVE AND A HALF BILLION OF THAT- INTO VACCINES. REWROTE THE CHAPTER OF THE PANDEMIC BOOK ON HOW YOU DO THIS WERE AT LEAST A YEAR AHEAD OF WHERE ANYBODY WOULD HAVE THOUGHT WE WOULD HAVE BEEN IN FEBRUARY OR MARCH OF THIS YEAR. VISOR WAS A PARTNER THE LITTLE DIFFERENT PART EVERY ONE OF THESE PARTNERSHIPS AND A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT THE PLEASURE DEAL WAS. WE'RE KOMPLETTEN ARE VACCINE WE'RE SURE WE'RE GOING TO GET THERE- IF YOU'LL GUARANTEE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WILL DISTRIBUTE AND YOU BY TWO BILLION DOLLARS WORTH OF IT THAT'S THAT'S THE DEAL WITH US. ASTRAZENECA MATERNA A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENTLY BUT ALL OF THESE COMPANIES PLUS ABOUT THREE MORE. ARE ALL MAKING VACCINES AS THEY GET NEAR THE END OF THE TRIAL PERIOD. SO THEY'LL BE.

SEVERAL MILLION COPIES OF ANY OF THESE VACCINES AVAILABLE ON DAY ONE AND ONCE YOU GET THAT SYSTEM STARTED IT BEGINS TO PRODUCE VACCINES- PRETTY QUICKLY I THINK THE- THE DISTRIBUTION EFFORT IS BEEN WELL THOUGHT OUT THE STATE'S OF ALL SUBMITTED. A PLAN- HOPEFULLY THE STATE'S WILL ALL RESPOND TO THE PROPOSAL OF HOW THE VACCINE WOULD BE. ALLOCATED TO- HEALTH CARE WORKERS AND FIRST RESPONDERS FIRST OF PEOPLE MOST IN DANGER OF HAVING THE WORST RESULTS IF THEY GOT THE- THE VIRUS NURSING HOMES WOULD BE A BIG GROUP IN THAT. IN THAT- AND THEN THE ESSENTIAL EMPLOYEES OF THE COUNTRY THE BUS THE SCHOOL BUS DRIVERS THE TEACHERS THE DAYCARE CENTER WORKERS THE GROCERY STORE CLERK- THE- FOOD PROCESSING EMPLOYEE. PEOPLE WHO ARE IN A LOT OF CONTACT WITH OTHER PEOPLE IF THEY CAN'T GET IT. THEY CAN'T GIVE IT TO YOU SO EVERY DAY AS YOU TAKE THESE GROUPS OFF THE DANGER ZONE OF THE VACCINE.

ONLY THEY GET SAFER BUT EVERYBODY ELSE GETS SAFER- AND- BY THE TIME YOU GET TO THE END OF THOSE GROUPS YOU'VE HAD ABOUT 50% OF THE AMERICAN POPULATION. WOULD HAVE HAD THE ABILITY TO HAVE THE VACCINE AND THEN. WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS WITH THE WITH EVERYBODY ELSE AND ON THOSE- COMPANIES THAT WE IN THAT WE THOUGHT HAD A BETTER CHANCE OF. OF BEING SUCCESSFUL THEY'RE NOT. AND THEY'RE NOT SUCCESSFUL THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS ARE GOING TO LOSE A LITTLE MONEY ON THAT. AT A BACKED IF WE DIDN'T HAVE A FAILURE HERE WE WEREN'T TRYING HARD ENOUGH. WE WEREN'T PUSHING THE ENVELOPE FOR ENOUGH REMEMBER ALL THESE VACCINES WILL BE A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT FROM ANY OF THE OTHERS. AND THEY'RE ALL BEING PRODUCED IRRESPECTIVE OF WHAT'S HAPPENING ANYWHERE ELSE SO THIS IS REALLY BIG NEWS I- AGAIN HOPE AS WE NOW MOVE BEYOND THE ELECTION DISCUSSION.

TO A REAL PANDEMIC RESPONSE DISCUSSION OTHER PEOPLE ARE GOING TO APPRECIATE WHAT'S REALLY HAPPEN BOTH THE IN. DID AND I'D SUGGEST MOST IMPORTANTLY WHAT THE CONGRESS WAS WILLING TO APPROPRIATE MONEY FOR. JUST A FEW THINGS THIS AFTERNOON ACT COMING THROUGH THIS LAST LAST ELECTION CYCLE AT WHICH WAS VERY DIFFICULT FOR SO MANY WE ACTUALLY SAW SOME PRETTY INCREDIBLE GAINS BY CONSERVATIVE WOMEN AND WHAT WE CAN SAY IS THIS WAS THE YEAR FOR THE GOP WOMEN AND WE PICKED UP HOUSE ERRED SEATS IN THE HOUSE. AND WE ARE ALSO GAINING ANOTHER WOMAN AND ARE REPUBLICAN CONFERENCE CYNTHIA LUMMIS FROM- WYOMING SO IT HAS BEEN A REALLY EXCITING YEAR AND ONE WHERE WE HOLD THAT YOUNG CONSERVATIVE WOMEN WILL TAKE A WALK OUT OF THE MAKE UP OF CONGRESS AND DETERMINED THAT THERE IS OPPORTUNITY OUT THERE- FOR THEM AS WELL SO VERY EXCITING STUFF GOING ON- SECOND TO OF COURSE AS THE LEADER MENTIONED HOPEFULLY WE CAN GET A COVERT NINETEEN RECOVERY PACKAGE. I THINK THAT'S IMPORTANT AS SOMETHING THAT I CONTINUE TO HEAR EVEN WHILE I WAS ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL HOW IOWANS REALLY HOPED WE COULD STEP UP AND GET A TARGETED RELIEF BILL DONE THERE ARE STILL SO MANY PEOPLE THAT ARE HURTING OUT ACROSS THE NATION AND WE WOULD LOVE TO PROVIDE THEM RELIEF.

SO WE'RE HOPEFUL THAT TO US BICKER PELO SAY WELL GET HER CAUCUS TOGETHER COME COME UP TO THE TABLE AND ACTUALLY WORK WITH US ON THESE EFFORTS AND THEN FINALLY FOLKS TOMORROW IS VETERANS DAY. AND THIS OF COURSE IS AN IMPORTANT DAY FOR ME BUT I WOULD LIKE TO REMIND ALL IOWANS- AND ALL AMERICANS TOO JUST A PLACE SAY THANK YOU TO A VETERANS SOMEONE IT WAS WARNER NATION'S UNIFORM IN THE ARMED SERVICES. AND THANK THEM FOR CONTINUING TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE GREAT FREE SOCIETY THAT WE HAVE IN THE MOST INCREDIBLE NATION ON. THE FACE OF THE PLANET THANK YOU. WE WOULD HOPE THIS IS THE THIRD OF FOURTH TIME THAT THE- HAS A LEAD ELECTION FOR.

WITHOUT HE DID IT DURING THE TWENTY SIXTEEN PRIMARIES HE DID IT AFTER THE TWENTY SIXTEEN GENERAL ELECTION AND HE'S DOING IT NOW. WHY DO YOU CONTINUE TO INDULGE IN. WHAT I'M GONNA DO. HERE IN THE SENATE IS CONCENTRATE ON THE BUSINESS THAT WE HAVE. LEFT TO DO. WHICH I MENTIONED WHILE AGO. DOMINO'S PROCREATION BILL MAY BE. ANOTHER CORONAVIRUS PACKAGE. I LOVE THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION GO THROUGH THE VARIOUS STAGES THAT IT COULD THAT IT GOES THROUGH UNDER THE CONSTITUTION. THERE WILL BE APPARENTLY LITIGATION. THOSE CASES WILL BE DECIDED. AND THEN THEY ARE ELECTORAL COLLEGE ROOMMATE AND THEY WILL HAVE THE INAUGURATION. BUT I AM GOING TO CONCENTRATE ON WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO HERE IN THE REMAINDER OF THIS CONGRESS WAS.

YOUR SENATE RACE OR ANY SENATE RACE THAT YOU KNOW WHAT. GEORGE WAS THERE ANY FRAUD IN YOUR SENATE RACE OR ANY SENATE RACE THAT YOU KNOW OF. I'D I DON'T KNOW. IF THE RISK OF BRAGGING AT ONE VERY CLOSE. ONE SET OF YOU READ IT FOR YOU FOR YOUR ACT. THE TWO THOUSAND FOUR PUSHED BY CONTRIBUTED TO A LACK OF. PREPAREDNESS BEFORE NINE FOR ELEVEN SHE. GSA FINALEMENT RIGHT PAPER NOW TO LET THE BEGINNING AVOID THE FEDERAL PRICE. YEAH I THINK WE'RE HAVE. BIDEN INTERRUPTED TRANSITION. THERE WHOEVER IS THAT ADMINISTRATION. I THINK WHAT OF ALL HAND. NOT ACT THIS IS EXTRA. WE'RE GET THROUGH THIS AND WILL SWEAR THE WAY. ON JANUARY THE TWO TO TWENTY ONE JUST LIKE WE HAVE EVERY FOUR YEARS SINCE. SEVENTEEN NINETY THREE. IF YOU. THANK. OKAY. ON THE- FINAL. FOR OKAY YEAH REFORM I FOR GAMES FIVE MINUTES.
