All the Senate can do is to squabble.

Democrats should be careful or their obstructiveness will give us the President as dictator.  Quick action is imperative.  If it is true that the Democrats are obstructing because they are determined to use the aid bill in order to include their entire wish list of items unrelated to the health and economic crisis, they will prove that the existing US political system cannot deal with the crises, and Trump will become dictator de facto.

The Democrats are right to insist that the aid is not just for business and must include ordinary people.  But they should not try to use the bill for unrelated issues.
