Republicans Taking Credit for Stimulus They Voted Against

Last week, the American Rescue Plan Act was handed by Congress and signed into legislation by President Biden. The $1.9 trillion stimulus bundle contains issues like $1,400 checks for many Americans, a $3,600 little one tax credit score, and an additional $300 per week in unemployment advantages. While the primary two coronavirus stimulus plans have been bipartisan, this one was made legislation solely by Democrats; not a single Republican within the House or Senate voted for the invoice. But now as the advantages begin getting delivered to individuals and the laws stays extremely common, some Republicans are attempting to take credit score for the reduction bundle they voted towards.

Republican Congresswoman Maria Salazar tweeted over the weekend, “so proud to announce that the Biden Administration has just implemented my bipartisan COVID relief bill as part of @SBAgov policy!” GOP Senator from Mississippi Roger Wicker tweeted how glad he’s that “impartial restaurant operators have received $28.6 billion value of focused reduction.” Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger put out a press release not too long ago saying, “Today, I’m glad to know my constituents will be receiving an additional relief payment and funding to help improve their access to vaccines, PPE, and unemployment insurance.” If Republicans wished to have the ability to take credit score for this rescue plan, they need to have made a good-faith effort to barter the phrases after which finally voted for the invoice. Every GOP member of Congress handed on that chance and now they’re panicking attempting to fake that they helped make it occur.
