Because Democrats stayed at the table and worked to make this bill better, it has advanced dramatically from the GOP proposal we saw on Sunday. More relief for families, more support for hospitals, and more help for small businesses. That's what we demanded, and it's what we got.
I'm proud that Democrats pushed to get today's relief bill to a strong place—it's a big step in addressing this crisis—but we also know it won't cover everything. We're ready to keep working to tackle additional problems and provide more support for American workers and families.

I wanted to be first at my polling place, but 99-year-old Minerva Turpin beat me to it. Looks like I need to get used to being number two!
