Rep. Dan Crenshaw slammed the $1.9 trillion relief bill on Thursday. Crenshaw tweeted, “Bribing people with their own money is dishonest and unsustainable.” Crenshaw continued, “Democrats just passed a $1.9 trillion bribery bill and they handed our children the bill (with some inflation too.)”
You bribed Americans with their own money and foot our kids with the bill.
You spend only 1% on vaccine distribution. You give no incentive to reopen schools or the economy.
And then you expect gratitude for your benevolence.
Imagine thinking this is an accomplishment. https://t.co/4kVTebzYNw

While appearing on Fox News, Crenshaw said, “Look, if you’re really happy about getting a $1,400 check — again, imagine that, giving free money to people is popular, I get that, but here’s the thing: it’s costing you $5,700, give or take, and if you’re not paying for it, your kids are. Look, if this is really as popular as the Democrats say it is, we’re in a lot of trouble as a country. It means that we have fully given in to this notion that we should be bribed by our government for false promises. And that is not an American thing to do. We have to stop collectively doing that. It’s going to destroy the next generation. It’s already threatening to cause massive inflation.”

The bill will send payments of $1,400 to Americans. When income reaches $75,000 the payments begin to phase out.
“Here’s the other thing about this bill,” Crenshaw continued. “There’s already trillions, hundreds of billions, about a trillion unspent from past relief bills. There is money in the PPP fund that could go to small businesses if you change the standards of how they get it. That would be smart. Half of this money won’t even be spent until 2022 or later. It is an absolute lie for them to say that this is an emergency relief bill that goes and invests directly in the people. It is for a lot of different nonsense that has nothing to do with COVID. Only 9% of it has to do with COVID healthcare. Only about 1% is for vaccine distribution.”
