Congressional Republicans who reject the economic stimulus package $ 1.9 billion dollars fear no voter punishment.
The aid package that is in the process of integration has faced criticism from Republicans on Monday in the House Budget Committee, where it will be voted on Monday.
A report from The Hill indicates that Republicans, however, have not really measured the impact it could have on voters if they reject aid against the crisis caused by the pandemic of COVID-19.
“I don’t see any risk for Republicans to oppose this, especially when it comes to the 2022 election.”, He said Ford O’Connell, Republican strategist.
Republicans in the House have criticized the aid package and argue that the plan “is not directed”In other words, it is not going to those who really need it, from their point of view.
The report indicates that Republicans reject the wage increase to $ 15 an hour nationwide, as well as direct support to state and local governments.
“(Democrats) are using the reconciliation process to get stuck on their liberal wish list agenda,” charged the representative. Steve Scalise (Louisiana) in a message sent to colleagues, adds the report.
This Monday, the House Budget Committee will approve the package for recommendation to the plenary.
