Luetkemeyer on Democrats’ Partisan Agenda Disguised as Coronavirus Relief
Washington, February 27, 2021
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03) voted against Democrats’ $1.9 trillion partisan power play disguised as a coronavirus “rescue package.”
“The bipartisan Covid relief bill Congress passed in December was a rescue package that included provisions and funding for actual pandemic recovery efforts. Between that bill and funding from the CARES Act, there is still $1 trillion in relief funding yet to be spent. While not perfect, both bills were earnest rescue efforts with targeted relief to help our nation recover from a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic,” said Congressman Luetkemeyer.
“By contrast, only 9% of this latest proposal from the Democrats is related to Covid relief. At one of the most pivotal moments in our nation’s history, the Biden Administration and Congressional Democrats are using this opportunity to advance their partisan agenda and sell it to the American people as a rescue effort. Right now, our nation needs a direct path to in-person learning, funding for vaccine distribution, and a fully reopened economy.”
