Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Oct. 15 said he doesn’t support a stimulus package worth $1.8 trillion or $2.2 trillion, what has been proposed by the White House and Democrats, respectively.

“I don’t think so. That’s where the administration is willing to go. My members think half a trillion dollars, highly targeted, is the best way to go,” McConnell told reporters when he was asked about the prospect of a deal.
