Pelosi and Schumer Seeking Billions and Even Trillions of Dollars More

Conservative House Republican Whip Steve Scalise in an interview on Fox News points out that $150 billion (that's billion with a b) has been sent to the states. Trillions of dollars have already been spent. Here's what Congressman Scalise has to say:

"Well, did [Speaker Pelosi] forget that Congress literally just sent out $150 billion to states just last week? Most of these states just got the money, haven't even started spending it yet and she's talking about giving them more money? For goodness sake, I mean, there are trillions of dollars out the door. We're trying to help families and small businesses hang on right now. And it seems like the only state she's interested in helping are those states that had multi-billion-dollar deficits before COVID-19. We ought to be spending our time making sure that the trillions we sent out the door are being spent properly, and helping those small businesses stay afloat and those families stay afloat so that they can have jobs to come back to when we start opening the economy soon. And we need to start opening up the economy in a safer way as we are doing this right now."
