rappresentante. Jody l'ho fatto, R-Ga., is criticizing the $ 900 miliardi disegno di legge di soccorso per il coronavirus, saying the lack of time Congress had to review the bill was “unacceptable and inexcusable.”
“È imperdonabile,” Hice told Trace Gallagher on “Sala stampa americana” mercoledì. “Questo è 5,600 pages that we did not have a chance to offer amendments [per], did not have a chance to debate, and did not even know what was in it until the last second.”
“This process of ‘Vote on it and then find out what’s in it’ is unacceptable and inexcusable to place on the American people,” Egli ha detto.
Hice voted against the bill, which the House approved Monday by a 359-53 votazione. The Senate then approved the bill, 91-6, martedì.
Hice agreed with President Trump’s calls for the reduction of unrelated provisions attached to the bill. Hice argued that reopening the economy would be the best way to get Americans hit hard by the pandemic back on their feet.
“I certainly agree that we need to get rid of the pork, but what we really need to do is reopen the economy,” Hice said. “Even if we give a $ 2,000 check to people, that does not replace an income, a stable income for people.”
“We have thousands of businesses going out of business simply because of fear of the pandemic,” Ha aggiunto. “We have got to open the economy and discontinue this current path of going in debt, of bankrupting our companies, and giving a little bit of money that ultimately is not going to solve the problem.”

“It’s called the COVID relief bill but it has almost nothing to do with COVID,” ha osservato il presidente.
