Statement by Freedom Foundation National Director Aaron Withe on Corona virus relief bill

“President Trump this afternoon signed a historic bill that provides much-needed relief to millions of American workers and businesses of all sizes.

“Unfortunately, Democrats in both houses of Congress sought to exploit the misery of others just long enough to send a heaping helping of pork to their allies in organized labor. Under the watchful eyes of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), the final bill includes provisions including a so-called “union neutrality” which does nothing to assist those adversely affected by the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic and only makes it easier to unionize small businesses in the private sector.

“Pelosi, Schumer and unions should be ashamed that while businesses and individuals throughout the country are suffering, they are profiteering.”
