Issa Statement on Emergency Coronavirus Bill: Must Be Done with Transparency and Accountability
Congressman Darrell Issa released the following statement in response to the emergency coronavirus relief bill under consideration in Congress.
“Workers and businesses are hurting, and the emergency bill is an important temporary measure to help ease some of the pain before our economy starts moving again. However, the government is spending $2 trillion in taxpayer dollars and that has to be done with transparency and accountability. Misuse of this money is completely unacceptable.”
“And though the emergency bill is welcome relief for many, the best way to help Americans who are struggling through this shutdown is to let them get back to work. The President has shown he wants to get our economy moving as soon as it’s safe to do so and that should be our ultimate goal.”
