Democrats are holding up the Coronavirus relief package because they are trying to stuff it with left wing items that are completely unrelated to the crisis.
During his show on Monday night, Tucker Carlson broke down what is happening here.

Tucker Carlson: Democrats Holding Up Coronavirus Relief Putting ‘Wokeness’ Over The American People
Fox News host Tucker Carlson blasted Democrats for trying to pack the coronavirus stimulus bill with leftist Democratic goals that have “nothing to do with fighting the pandemic.”
On Monday, the Senate failed to pass a procedural cloture vote on phase-three of the bill, earning sharp criticism from Republicans like Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy, who accused them of continuing “to double down on stupid.”
During a Monday night “Tucker Carlson Tonight” monologue that included the chyron”Wokeness Above All,” the Fox News host detailed several measures included in the 1,400 page House Democratic bill that he contended could only be conceived by people “indulging their creepy ideological obsessions.”
“The bill would require every corporation that receives coronavirus aid to have officers and a budget dedicated to diversity and inclusion initiatives for a minimum of five years after they get the money, because that is going to keep America healthy and prosperous, just like it has,” Carlson said.
“Companies would also have to produce elaborate racial reports for the government listing the skin color and the sex of their officers and boards of directors. They have to prove they give enough money to firms owned by women and nonwhites, and of course how much they spend on diversity initiatives.”

It’s astounding that this is being allowed to even happen during such a crisis.
Democrats are putting their political priorities ahead of the safety and security of the American people.
