Brady: Democrats’ Partisan Bill Doesn’t Focus on Virus or Jobs

February 8, 2021 — Coronavirus Bulletin    — Press Releases   

WASHINGTON — The top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee Kevin Brady (R-TX) released the following statement after Committee Democrats announced they will debate multiple bills this week that compromise part of President Biden’s COVID-19 relief “plan”:

“Our focus should be on crushing the virus and rebuilding our economy. Unfortunately, the bill placed before us at this late hour doesn’t fit that effort, and Democrats are insisting on pushing forward on an almost $2 trillion bill without bipartisan compromise. We will remain steadfast in our focus to maximize vaccine distribution, target relief, and help workers, families, and small businesses get back to their lives.”
