$3 Trillion and Wasted Time…

… that’s what Speaker Pelosi’s bill will cost the American people.

Rather than introducing smart, bipartisan legislation that will help America recover, Democrats have put forward a messaging bill full of special-interest giveaways that's DOA in the Senate.

Millions of Americans across the country are without jobs – but House Democrats' progressive wish-list is packed with wasteful spending unrelated to economic stimulus and combatting COVID-19.

Instead of helping our small businesses, this bill focuses on ballot harvesting, marijuana banking, bailing out union pensions and the early release of criminals. In fact, in Speaker Pelosi's bill, the word "cannabis" appears more times than the word "job".

Bottom line, this bill is a recipe for a prolonged recession, with virtually nothing in it to help our economy get back on its feet.

I will be voting against it, and I encourage my colleagues to put partisan politics aside and work with me to help the 36 million jobless Americans get back to work.
