The National Republican Congressional Committee attacked Democrats in a sponsored fundraising email as Congress works to pass a massive stimulus package to help American workers and businesses struggling because of coronavirus.

The email, paid for by the NRCC and signed by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, blasts Democrats for pushing partisan policies instead of working to help Americans amid the health crisis.

"At a time when our leaders should be coming together for the sake of ALL Americans, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have chosen to prioritize outrageous partisan games," the email says. "Instead of helping families, Democrats want to regulate airplane emissions. Instead of helping small business owners, Democrats want to pass ballot harvesting legislation."

The message urges readers to donate to a "Stop Pelosi Fund," and says that donations will be matched by a factor of five. 

"Frankly, the Democrats’ obstructionist actions are unacceptable which is why I have activated 5X MATCHING until midnight tonight to our Stop Pelosi Fund," the email also states. 

It is unclear who would supply the funding for the five-times matching donation.
