"A top Republican senator who had no qualms with voting for a $1.5 trillion tax cut for the rich or a multi-trillion-dollar corporate slush fund said Sunday that, as millions of people across the U.S. struggle to afford basic necessities, there is "not enough money" to provide relief to everyone harmed by the coronavirus pandemic.
"There’s not enough money to help everybody hurt when you shut down the government," Sen. Lamar Alexander, a Tennessee Republican and chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, said in an appearance on NBC’s "Meet the Press."
"We have to reopen the economy, we have to do it carefully, we have to let people go back to work and earn a living," said Alexander.
"And I don’t see us being able to appropriate much more money to help provide a counter to that.""
