Coronavirus relief bill was ‘worth the day wait’


Sen. Chris Coons on Wednesday put his full support behind the $2 trillion coronavirus relief package agreed to by the Senate and White House. 

“I think it was worth the day wait,” the Delaware Democrat said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” “I’m really excited about this package and excited to get it out the door.” 

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced an agreement had been reached on the Senate floor around 1:30 a.m. ET on Wednesday. “At last we have a deal,” the Kentucky Republican said. 

Wall Street and Main Street had been on edge as Americans awaited congressional action on the massive relief bill to soften the crushing economic blow from the coronavirus.
