McConnell thinks bankruptcy, not more federal money, might be best for state and local governments

McConnell’s tough words came a day after the Senate approved a $484 billion bill to help small businesses and hospitals respond to the coronavirus outbreak. The measure did not include funds for state and local governments, despite Democrats arguing they are hard hit by the disease and the corresponding economic fallout.

Instead, McConnell suggested in interviews Wednesday that Democrats are trying to get the federal government to essentially bail out state and local governments for bad decisions they made related to public pension obligations and other sources of expensive debt.

“I would certainly be in favor of allowing states to use the bankruptcy route,” McConnell told Hugh Hewitt in a radio interview. “It saves some cities.

Business casual may mean different things in different companies, cities, and industries. And on top of that, understanding the subtle differences between “business” and “business casual” isn’t easy.

One thing is clear: Dressing in shorts and a t-shirt or a sundress and sandals is too casual. But wearing a full suit is overly formal. 

When in doubt, it’s better to err on the side of dressing too formally, rather than too casually. But where’s the line? Get advice on appropriate business casual attire for men and women, along with tips on what to wear — and what

“Working with Congress we were able to get $3 trillion that we are pumping into the economy,” said Mnuchin. “As it relates to states, part of
