December 29, 2020 - In voting against the COVID relief bill, Tom McClintock has once again demonstrated his hypocrisy.
He claims concern for the Federal deficit. But, he had no such concern when voting for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. In spite of creating a net $1.9 Trillion deficit, he supported it.
His “solution” instead of the COVID relief bill is to simply end all “lockdowns.” But, this is a false promise. Consumers drive 70% of our economy, and many of those are not ready or able to resume their prior expenditures on restaurants, entertainment venues, planes, etc. regardless of their allowed seating capacity. You can increase the supply of those seats, but if there isn’t the demand for them, the economy will remain stalled.
When it comes to returning money to his donors, McClintock doesn’t worry about deficits. He only worries when it comes to helping those in need.
