Congressional Democrats Support Liberal Wishlist Over The Needs Of New Jerseyan

February 27, 2021

Trenton: In the middle of the night, Democrats in the House of Representatives approved a liberal wishlist spending bill masked as a COVID-19 relief bill.

Reps. Gottheimer, Sherrill, Malinowski, and Kim voted for this bill. This $1.9 trillion dollar spending bill, being dubbed as a COVID relief bill, spends less than half of the funds on COVID-related items. The majority goes to liberal pork, such as:

NJGOP Executive Director Phil Valenziano said:

“New Jersey has the highest COVID death rate in the entire world, one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation, and a majority of its schools being taught virtually, yet Reps. Gottheimer, Kim, Malinowski, and Sherrill voted to fund art museums, a subway in San Jose, and a bridge to Canada, while their constituents suffer. By voting for this rushed spending bill loaded up with pork, Reps. Malinowski, Kim, Sherrill, and Gottheimer are showing New Jersey that they care more about pleasing their political patrons than helping our state. These vulnerable Democrats are out of touch with what their constituents need, and will pay the price for that at the polls next fall.”
