GOP begins resistence to Biden's relief plan as Republicans expect no breaking of ranks
Republican leaders don't expect for any Democrats to vote against ranks on the bill.
As you know, 10 of our members actually went down, met with the president and talked about a more narrow, targeted approach. The message was that they were not interested in doing it that way. They're going to try to muscle this through on a totally partisan basis that we think this is dramatically mawr money than is required at this particular juncture. It also includes a number of things that have absolutely nothing to do with covert relief. And so it will be controversial. But we are on track, uh, to get this bill done and get it on the president's desk before the expiration of the enhanced unemployment benefits, which is March 14. We're going to meet that deadline, and it's gonna be a robust, strong bill, just yeah, uh, might of the attack leveled against you by the former president. You regret your comments and all accusing him of a disgraceful dereliction of duty and being morally and practically responsible for the attack. I really don't have anything Thio on that subject. So, um, it a global pandemic. The president has made a puzzling selection for this crucial post. The famously partisan Attorney General of California, Mr Bezerra has no particular experience or expertise in health. His chief passion project in California seemed to be using the force of the government to attack Americans. Religious liberty and freedom of conscience. We will review. Mr Bashar is testimony today, but I'm hard pressed to see anyway, such a radical and under qualified nominee should fill such a critical pose at this crucial time. Look, I think Neera Tanden would be an outstanding O. M B, uh, nominee. And for Republicans who looked the other way with the nastiest of treats by their president, their leader for now toe say Neera Tanden shouldn't get in because of her tweets is a little bit of ah, contradiction.
