Does America need $3 trillion in spending on top of trillions already spent?
That’s what the U.S. House of Representatives passed Friday night. This bailout package is not about helping people or battling the health and economic crisis we are all facing. Instead, this additional $3 trillion proposal is a partisan wish list and bailout to cover the irresponsible fiscal decisions made by states prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As veterans, we know what it means to swear an oath to defend our country against all threats, foreign and domestic. Members of Congress swear a similar oath. But Washington’s reckless spending and debt is one of the greatest threats to our country’s future, and the American taxpayer is shouldered with their poor decisions.
Now, as Congress considers more massive federal bailouts to prop up the bad policy decisions of lawmakers in states like New York, California, and Illinois, we can defend against this threat by telling Washington to reject more reckless spending.
Take action to tell legislators to reject big-government bailouts and reckless spending.
