There are more than two dozen reported examples of how the PPP is helping small businesses across the country. The reason it’s out of money is because Democrat leaders in Congress blocked more funding for it. Now, while House Democrats are calling for more money to immediately be added to this program, Speaker Pelosi is vowing to “negotiate, negotiate, negotiate.”
Leader McConnell put forward a bill to provide more funding for this bipartisan program. Instead of firing off empty tweets, will these members call on the Speaker to support his legislation that adds money for the PPP?
The @SBAgov’s Paycheck Protection Program has just run out of money, leaving business owners who are trying to pay their employees stranded.
We need to fund the PPP and other SBA programs — there are small businesses counting on our support.

This is unacceptable. Leaders in both parties need to stop the partisan bickering and get more funding to this critical program – our workers and small businesses depend on it. https://t.co/URE83X7Krg

This is Washington politics at its worst. Families & small businesses are struggling, and our frontline workers need more support. Both parties must work together to secure more funding for the Paycheck Protection Program & other aid for our communities. https://t.co/MhcQj7UruZ

We cannot treat relief for small businesses like a political football. I'm calling on both parties to come together to fund PPP. We must strengthen access for our smallest businesses, but that shouldn't stop us from taking action. PPP needs funding now. https://t.co/H1I6SLN19F

Congress must immediately replenish funds for the Paycheck Protection Program.
Millions of small businesses are counting on this program to cover expenses and pay their workers.
We have to get this right. https://t.co/xBcnxyt3rY
