GOPers Reveal Why They Voted Against the Wuhan Virus Relief Package
GOPers Reveal Why They Voted Against the Wuhan Virus Relief Package by Beth Baumann for Sara A Carter
TDC Note – Did anyone read it before signing? Anyone? At least four “representatives” that voted against it are from Tennessee.
The House passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act in the wee hours of the morning on Saturday after House Democrats came to an agreement with the Trump administration. The bill extends free testing for the Wuhan Virus to the uninsured. It also increases spending on unemployment benefits, Medicaid and allocates money to provide school lunches to students whose schools remain closed because of the outbreak.
Although the bill passed, these 40 Republicans voted against the bill:
Brian Babin (TX), Jim Banks (IN), Andy Biggs (AZ), Dan Bishop (NC), Ken Buck (CO), Ted Budd (NC), Tim Burchett (TN), Bradley Byrne (AL), Ben Cline (VA), Michael Cloud (TX), Warren Davidson (OH), Scott DesJarlais (TN), Jeff Duncan (SC), Tom Emmer (MN), Russ Fulcher (ID), Mike Gallagher (WI), Louie Gohmert (TX), Lance Gooden (TX), Mark Green (TN), Glen Grothman (WI), Kevin Hern (OK), Jody Hice (GA), Jim Jordan (OH), Steve King (IA), Debbie Lesko (AZ), Billy Long (MO), Barry Loudermilk (GA), Tom McClintock (CA), Alex Mooney (WV)
Ralph Norman (SC), John Rose (TN), Chip Roy (TX), Jim Sensenbrenner (WI), Jason Smith (MO), Bryan Steil (WI), Greg Steube (FL), William Timmons (SC), Michael Waltz (FL), Randy Weber (TX) and Joe Wilson (SC).
Even though the mainstream media and lefties are quick to say Republicans who voted against the bill shouldn’t have, GOPers are coming out to explain why.
According to Rep. Chip Roy (TX), House members were given the final version of the bill a half hour before they were supposed to vote on it. They didn’t have time to read it, debate it or make any amendments. Things were jammed through.
