A HUGE crowd of Black Lives Matter protesters shouted "I can't breathe" and demanded cash outside of Mitch McConnell's house.
The demonstrators arrived outside of the Senate Majority Leader's home demanding unemployment checks on Thursday.
"If we don't get $600! [Crowd: No peace!] I said if we don’t get $600! [No peace!]," activists yelled. "I said if we don't get $600! [No peace!] I said if we don't get $600! [No peace!]"
The protesters also demanded healthcare benefits and chanted "I can't breathe" and "Black Lives Matter" outside McConnell's home in Washington, DC.
"I need that money, and until I get that money, I'm going to be right here on C Street everyday until I get it,” the man continued. “No justice! [Crowd: No peace!] No justice! [No peace!] No healthcare! [No peace!] No healthcare! [No peace!]" they chanted.
Additional footage heard protesters demanding to know where their money was.
Earlier this week, the senator from Kentucky introduced a coronavirus relief proposal, which also included a second round of Paycheck Protection Program funds to small businesses worth $258billion – plus $105billion for schools and colleges.
The bill also contained a liability protection plan to protect businesses from lawsuits from employees or customers who contract COVID-19.
But it failed to garner the 60 votes it needed under the "filibuster" procedure, with the result was 52 to 47.
All Republicans voted "yes," except for Senator Rand Paul, who joined with all Democrats present who voted "no."
The bill's sabotage means any new coronavirus aid before the November election is unlikely, with the Democrats accused of playing politics with essential aid for millions of stricken Americans.
