On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, House Oversight Committee Ranking Member Rep. James Comer (R-KY) explains why the proposed COVID relief bill from the Democrats in Congress is "immoral" and could be damaging to the economy for years to come.
"Another discouraging thing with this bill is the way they appropriate the $350B that goes to state and local governments. The more you've shut down the your economy, the more money you get. So you're rewarded for bad behavior when states like Texas and Tennessee and South Dakota remained open, they don't get as much money as states like Illinois and New York City and California per capita. So it's very unfair and it's something that I hope the American people understand what's in this bill and why the Republicans are going to vote against it."
"It's immoral what they're trying to do to our children and grandchildren by it, by strapping an additional unnecessary two trillion dollars on the national debt. Many economists are saying that this money, even if it did get immediately infused into the economy, could overheat the economy and create inflation. So the people you're trying to help theoretically are the ones that will be hurt the most, the people that are living paycheck to paycheck, the people that have been unemployed, and the small business owners that are struggling to make ends meet. If we have massive inflation because of this bill, then what a tragedy, on top of the fact that this is immoral to spend this much money, that's that's not needed."
