Maxine Waters Says Her Sister Is Dying of Coronavirus

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA),  chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, revealed Thursday that will her coronavirus-stricken sister is declining in a hospital in St. Louis, Missouri.

Waters made the review during her House floor presentation in which she dedicated Congress’s $484 billion relief package to be able to her sister.

“I not only rise in support of this legislation,” said this California Democrat as she used her breathing filter around her face. “I also would like to rise in support of what we’re doing for the health care enhancement act in this bill. And I’m going to take a moment to dedicate this legislation to my dear sister who is dying in a hospital in St. Louis, Missouri, right now infected by the coronavirus.”

The House is envisioned to approve the relief expenses Thursday, two days as soon as the Senate passed the measure. The deal includes $310 billion for the Paycheck Protection Program, $75 billion intended for hospitals, $60 billion for urgent disaster loans, and $25 billion dollars for testing.

In one other part of Watersâ€? speech, this congresswoman said that subsequent coronavirus aid must provide additional finance for Americans “hurting by this exploding economic fallout of this pandemic.

“Congress must now immediately turn to the next package of legislation to provide relief during the pandemic,” the lawmaker added. “We need to do much more to help renters, homeowners, people experiencing homelessness and mom and pop landlords.”

Earlier Thursday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) declared that her oldest buddy, Don Reed Herring, had passed away from the coronavirus. He has been 86-years-old.

“My oldest brother, Don Reed, died from coronavirus on Tuesday evening,” Warren published on Twitter.  “He joined the Air Force at 19 and spent his career in the military, including five and a half years off and on in combat in Vietnam. He was charming and funny, a natural leader.”

“I’m grateful to the nurses and frontline staff who took care of him, but it’s hard to know that there was no family to hold his hand or to say ‘I love you’ one more time—and no funeral for those of us who loved him to hold each other close. I’ll miss you dearly my brother,” she added.
