Congressman Cloud Opposes Speaker Pelosi’s $3 Trillion Spending Bill
On Friday, Congressman Michael Cloud was in Washington to oppose the “Heroes Act,” a bill written by Speaker Nancy Pelosi totaling approximately 1,800 pages and $3 trillion.
Congressman Cloud released the following statement regarding the bill:
“House leadership marketed this legislation as the next phase in the COVID-19 federal response, yet it included provisions that would do more harm than good. Case in point: It puts an even greater burden on small business owners already struggling by making it harder to both keep current workers and rehire furloughed workers.”
“In addition, the bill includes a hodgepodge of items completely unrelated to COVID-19, like making abortion providers eligible for billions of taxpayer dollars. It also suspends the cap on state and local tax deductions for the wealthy and expands Obamacare. These are not constructive solutions meant to serve American families. As many across our country deal with the real-life ramifications of coronavirus, House leadership is trying to control our local elections. Congress should work on passing measures that will get Americans through this crisis and back to work.”
