Steve Benen: Why, exactly, are GOP lawmakers so opposed to giving the economy a boost ahead of Election Day? The official answer from Senate Republicans is that they're now concerned about the deficit. In other words, Republicans are blocking Trump's economic goals today in order to stand in the way of Biden's economic goals tomorrow. If/when a Democratic White House looks to Capitol Hill to create a strong and lasting economic recovery, McConnell is laying the groundwork now to say no.
