  • It's a snapshot I might remind you up to mid November, before the surgeon covert cases, we predicted many predicted, and the death sprys that we've seen in December as we head into a very dark winter ahead.

  • If Congress and President Trump failed act by the end of December, 12 million Americans will lose their unemployment benefits.

  • They rely on Merry Christmas.

  • If we don't act now, the future will be very bleak.

  • Americans need help, and they need it now.

  • But I must tell you, I am encouraged by the bipartisan efforts in the Senate around $900 billion package for relief.

  • It's a bipartisan effort, you know.

  • In the weeks since this election ended, there were questions about whether Democrats and Republicans could work together.

  • I know many of your skeptical about my view that they will and can't right now for showing they can.

  • Congress and President Trump have to get this deal done for the American people.

  • But any package passed in the lame duck session is not gonna be enough.

  • Overall is critical, but it's just a start Congress.

This is a dire jobs report.
