‘What we need to work on now is getting money to the people who were not getting a paycheck and make sure they have a job to go back to after this crisis passes.’

WASHINGTON – Today U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) discussed the delay of the CARES Act, critical legislation to get relief to Texans dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, by Senate Democrats on Fox News’ Bill Hemmer Reports. The Washington Times reported that Senate Democrats are demanding unrelated policy reforms, like solar and wind tax credits and new fuel emission standards, be included in the bill. Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s interview are below, and video can be found here.

“It appears to be that the Democratic colleagues see this as a moving vehicle to spend a lot of money on their ideological wish list, everything from global warming to private businesses on the boards of directors to tax credits to solar wind energy.

“What we need to work on now is getting money to the people who were not getting a paycheck and make sure they have a job to go back to after this crisis passes.

“Our health care providers are the best in the world. Our scientists are the best in the world. We will fix and find a way to defeat the virus but we have to make sure people have jobs. We have to make sure people have a paycheck coming in because they don't have work.”
