Republicans Risk Traveling To D.C. Just To Put Hold On Coronavirus Spending Bill

Republicans are making their way to Washington, D.C. just to vote against the stimulus package that would help families during this pandemic, according to NBC News reporter Garrett Haake.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) said that he not only intends to vote no on the bill, but he also intends to hold it up.

In an interview with 55 KRC radio Thursday morning he was against it because it would spike the national debt.

“If it were just about helping people to get more unemployment (benefits) to get through this calamity that, frankly, the governors have wrought on the people, then I could be for it,” Massie said, according to the Courier-Journal.

“But this is $2 trillion,” he continued. “Divide $2 trillion by 350 million people — it’s almost $6,000 for every man, woman and child. I’m talking about spending. This won’t go to the men, women and children. So if you have a family of five, this spending bill represents $30,000 of additional U.S. national debt because there is no plan to pay for it.”

House Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) warned members of congress not to risk making their way to D.C. as the bill is likely to pass.
