Congress’ solution to the pandemic seems to be to spend, spend,and spend some more. But after a certain point, enough is enough.
The U.S. debt has shot past $25 trillion so far because of this spending. A sensible person might want to scale back spending and focus on reopening.
Not these seven Republicans! In fact, they are trying to get the Senate to spend even more money, apparently siding with Democrats.
From Daily Caller:
Some Republicans are reportedly urging their leadership to pursue what Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has deemed a “blue state bailout.”
… Republican Sens. Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Bill Cassidy and John Kennedy of Louisiana, and Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan of Alaska have all urged McConnell to authorize more aid to states.
Sounding more and more like House Democrats, seven Republican senators are demanding Mitch McConnell to approve giving states a $500 billion bailout.
Several of these Republicans are from traditionally blue states. But others are not. They include Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Shelley Moore Capito, Bill Cassidy, John Kennedy, Lisa Murkowski, and Dan Sullivan.
They want to give billions of your tax dollars to mostly blue states who are in debt.
Think of that: these “conservatives” want healthy states to fork over cash to bail out states that have been wasting money.
Why should states like Florida or Texas—who are not in debt—suffer because New York or California spent recklessly for years?
You’d think with a deficit as high as ours, fiscally conservatives leaders would be demanding an end to spending.
Yet these apparent “Republicans In Name Only” want to spend more just like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi do.
The debt blue states created started long before COVID-19. The federal government has already dished out trillions in aid—in the form of medical supplies for hospitals and loans to small businesses.
Why should we give out more cash to states that are giving checks to people who are here against the law?
If we want the economy to rebound, we need to get businesses back open. Plain and simple.
Reopening the economy is going to do that. Why aren’t these Republicans urging blue states to end the lockdowns?
Why aren’t they crafting a plan that involves cutting taxes, providing business relief, and ending wasteful spending?
Those are questions Romney, Collins, and the others will have to provide.
SHARE to tell Congress to stop the spending.
