Rubio Says Biden Stimulus “Fails America,” Announces Opposition

Mar 1, 2021 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) announced his opposition to the Democrats’ $1.9 trillion spending plan in a Medium post titled “Biden’s COVID Bill Fails America.” 

“Over the past 12 months, Republicans and Democrats have worked together to pass nearly $4 trillion in emergency coronavirus fiscal relief through five separate bills,” Rubio wrote. “While tens of billions of dollars remain unspent, there is broad bipartisan support for additional relief for families, small businesses, and vaccine distribution. But rather than working with Republicans — something two-thirds of Americans say they want — … President Biden and Congressional Democrats are hijacking the sixth COVID package and using it as a Trojan horse to begin a radical restructuring of the nation. I cannot and will not support such an irresponsible bill.”

Specifically, Rubio criticizes the bill for:

  • failing to reopen schools;
  • using small business programs as liberal slush funds;
  • turning the middle-class child tax credit into welfare; 
  • destroying important connections to work; and
  • funding ridiculous pet projects.

Rubio also provides a real path forward “that targets immediate needs — like temporary assistance to impacted Americans and money for vaccine distribution — and begins to focus on long-term rebuilding that creates jobs for Americans and makes us less vulnerable to future pandemics.”
