O'Connor Calls On Markey, Kennedy To Do Their Jobs As Paycheck Protection Program Runs Dry Due To Congressional Dysfunction

U.S Senate Candidate Kevin O’Connor made the following statement today regarding funding for the Payment Protection Program, which the administration said today has run out of money:

Congress needs to immediately pass a clean bill extending funding for the Paycheck Protection Program and stop holding American’s paychecks hostage to other priorities. It is beyond unacceptable that this bill languishes as millions more Americans are cast into unemployment. Senator Markey and Congressman Kennedy need to do their jobs, insist their leadership move this bill forward, and then we can move on to other appropriations unrelated to this program, many of which are necessary.
