HEROES Act Response | 5.20.2020
I went on Fox News to discuss Pelosi’s ridiculous relief bill. CLICK HERE to watch!
The Democrats are at it again. During a national crisis, Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats pushed through a laughable COVID-19 “relief” package. The bill holds critical COVID-19 recovery aid hostage by surrounding it with countless liberal wish list items, driving the price tag to $3,000,000,000,000! Pelosi’s attempt at “relief” is completely disingenuous and politically motivated.
This bill includes provisions completely unrelated to the crisis at hand. It includes millions for the National Endowment of the Arts and National Endowment of Humanities, $71 million for the Fish and Wildlife Service, and it mentions marijuana more times than jobs (68 times in total).
It could not be more clear: Pelosi and the Democrats would rather score political points with the Left than put forward real solutions for Americans dealing with this crisis.
It’s time to put an end to the Democrats’ charades and provide real relief to the American People.
I’m committed to delivering real solutions for Louisiana, not political agendas. Together, we’ll ensure our American tax dollars are used responsibly to restart the economy, provide relief to local communities and small businesses, and ensure Louisiana comes back strong once again.
Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D.
