GOP Caucus Unveils ‘Playbook’ To Combat Democrats’ $1.9T COVID Relief Package – By OAN Newsroom (OANN) / Feb 22 2021
A conservative caucus in the House has laid out plans on how to combat Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill. On Monday, the Republican Study Committee released a three-page memo to highlight “all the left-wing items Democrats are hoping the public won’t find out about.”
RSC chairman Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) doubled down on his calls for transparency, saying taxpayers need to be informed about what’s in the bill. A number of issues in the package have raised eyebrows. For that reason, Banks said he and other Republican lawmakers hope this memo can serve as a fact sheet to educate Americans on what is at stake.
In the memo, the RSC raised concerns over extending PPP business funding to owners who could have a felony record, including violent criminals. It also shed light on the fact that under the bill, some undocumented immigrants would be eligible to receive the $1,400 proposed stimulus checks.
