‘Pro-Life’ Rep. Thomas Massie Plans to Block Coronavirus Aid Bill As U.S. Deaths Cross 1,000 Threshold
Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) — who claims to be “pro-life” — plans to block the coronavirus aid bill even though over 1,000 Americans have died as of March 26.
During an interview with 55 KRC radio, Massie said he would vote against the bill, which includes hundreds of millions of dollars to fight the deadly virus, a one-time $1,200 checks to individuals making less than $75,000 and $367 billion in loans and grants to small businesses, notes the Lexington Courier-Journal:
If it were just about helping people to get more unemployment (benefits) to get through this calamity that the governors have wrought on the people, then I could be for it.
Massie also hinted that he might object to a voice vote, which would force all House of Representatives members to return to Washington, D.C. and slowdown the bill– while more Americans die.
