(FOX BUSINESS) – Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., argued on Sunday that President-elect Joe Biden’s coronavirus relief plan, which calls for a $350 billion “bailout” for state and local governments, “makes no sense.”
“We shouldn’t have Florida taxpayers bailing out New York” and other blue states for their prior problems, he stressed.
Scott made the comments on “Fox & Friends Weekend” three days after Biden unveiled a $1.9 trillion coronavirus stimulus proposal that’s designed to jump-start the nation’s sputtering economy and accelerate vaccine distribution to control the deadly pandemic.
Biden wants to provide state, local and territorial governments with $350 billion in emergency funding to help them keep front-line workers employed and aid with vaccine distribution, COVID-19 testing, reopening schools and “maintaining other vital services.”
