Remarks as prepared for delivery:
“In times of challenge I recall this quote:
“’Fear knocked. Faith answered. No one was there.’
“Coronavirus has knocked at America’s door, and with it fear.
“Faith is answering.
“We answer with faith in ourselves and our abilities, faith in our free enterprise system, our amazing health care system, and yes, faith that when the chips are down Congress can come together with our President to help hard working families and businesses when they need it most.
“We answer the door at this crucial moment with faith in our Creator and faith in our great American spirit.
“This is the challenge of a lifetime. But if we keep pulling together, passing this bill without delay, we take another step toward that day when we answer the door and fear is no longer be there.”
