(FOX NEWS) – President Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill “makes no sense” and is little more than a “payback to the radical left” Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla. said Sunday.
The Florida senator made the comment in response to his colleague Sen. Bernie Sanders’ admission that the effort to pass Biden’s COVID-19 relief proposal without Republican support takes precedence over the party’s pledge for “unity” and bipartisan lawmaking.
“We’re ten days into the administration, now he’s [Biden] already saying he doesn’t care to work with Republicans?” Scott said. “You know, he’s going to try to get this done with Bernie Sanders with just 50 Democrat votes. That doesn’t make any sense.”
Biden and Sanders have both pointed to a legislative process known as budget “reconciliation” to expedite the bill through Congress if Republicans won’t support the proposal. Scott said the process is an abandonment of the Democratic Party’s commitment to Congressional bipartisanship, but expressed no plans to support the proposal citing the bill’s hefty price tag.
