Mitch McConnell is trying to put a series of "poison pills" into any increase in the Democratic Covid Relief increase bill.
According to CNN:
McConnell is looking to include an investigation into vote fraud in the bill. It also eliminates "section 230" the legal protection for social media from lawsuits.
Of course, had the President not signed the original bill he wouldn't need McConnell to block this additional funding.
The original bill gave vast sums of money to foreign countries and to pet Democratic projects. The final tally of the bill will be in the trillions. Trump made a lot of noise then signed it with "redlines" meaning he asked "pretty please" that Congress remove the stuff he didn't like. Naturally Pelosi and Schumer just laughed at that.
The "stimulus" as the Democrats call it will accomplish little; without reopening the country it will be merely a life preserver as businesses continue to fail.
It is, of course, important to win the runoff elections, which is why the Democrats created the original monstrosity; they knew the media would not tell the American People what was in it and wanted to make Trump look like the Grinch if he refused to sign it (and by extension the candidates running in the GOP.) Trump clearly understood that. But at this point he should just do what is right and not what might help the GOP, which lifted nary a finger to help him. While winning these seats is critical, given the election was stolen and so will all subsequent elections one wonders how much it really matters who wins this. We are going to lose no matter what; it's just a matter of how fast.
Had McConnell done his job properly in the first place and not passed that monstrous give away, he wouldn't now be forced to poison pill this extra treat for the Democrats. Actually, had he worked with Trump and defended the President (and the nation's electoral integrity) he wouldn't be in this boat. His devious nature is to blame here, in my opinion. McConnell never liked Trump, and gave him at best luke-warm support.
