The U.S. House of Representatives passed a massive $3 trillion bill Friday night, filled with state bailouts and reckless, partisan spending. It’s disappointing to see that some policymakers want to use this terrible crisis to push for taxpayer handouts. A federal bailout is unnecessary, wasteful, and unfair.
This bailout package is not about helping people or battling the health and economic crisis we are all facing. It's a partisan wish list and bailout to cover the irresponsible fiscal decisions made by states prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We should be focusing on helping the people who are hurting, not bailing out the bad decisions of irresponsible politicians. There are better ways to help people than a one-size-fits-all trillion-dollar federal spending bill.
For the Hispanic community, runaway spending unchecked is particularly problematic. As one of the youngest demographic groups, Latinos will be on the hook to pay for bailouts in the future.
Tell Congress to reject these reckless state bailouts!
