It's simple. If wasteful spending deals were wrong before the election, they're still wrong now. Don't let lawmakers force through a wasteful COVID spending bill in the lame duck session or tie it to any annual government funding bill.
Congress should be working to advance policies that will end the pandemic, not keep spending mass sums of money that are designed to help people simply endure it.
We can start with smarter testing, vaccine deployment, and therapeutics, not additional bailouts to state and local governments for reckless spending that predated this crisis
Tell your lawmaker to oppose any wasteful spending bills and all attempts to tie COVID spending with any government funding deal.
