image for Biden rips GOP for 'all of a sudden' showing fiscal restraint

"What Republicans have proposed is either to do nothing, or not enough," Biden said in prepared remarks on his $1.9 trillion proposal.

"All of a sudden many of them have rediscovered fiscal restraint and the concern for the deficits.

But don’t kid yourself, this approach will come with a cost: more pain for more people for longer than it has to be.".

Biden outlined his case for pushing the massive bill through Congress in order to get relief to the American people amid the coronavirus pandemic, which has wreaked havoc on the U.S. economy.

He also voiced interest in securing bipartisan backing for the bill, but said he would not scale back his proposal or wait much longer to garner GOP support.

Biden's proposal includes $1,400 in direct payments to most Americans and funding for schools and state and local governments, as well as money for increased vaccine distribution.

But some Republicans have balked at the overall price, arguing Congress just passed a relief bill in December and pointing to mounting deficits. »
