“This is out of control liberalism,” Senator Lindsey Graham told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday in response to the $1.9 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill that passed the Senate 50-49 over the weekend.
While it matches the amount of the first COVID-relief bill that passed 96-0 in 2020, Graham claims that 90% of the hefty new spending package “has got nothing to do with COVID.” And he warned that Democrats will continue to “run us over” if Republicans fail to retake either the House or Senate in 2022.
As an example, Sen. Graham pointed out one part of the relief bill that allows for up to 120% forgiveness of USDA loans for minority farmers, who are Black, Hispanic, Native American or Asian American. The provision was introduced by Democrat Senators Cory Booker and Raphael Warnock.
“In this bill if you are a farmer, your loan will be forgiven up to 120% of your loan — not 100% of your loan, but up to 120% — if you’re socially disadvantaged, if you’re African American…some other minority. But if you’re white person, if you’re a white woman, no forgiveness. That’s reparations. What does that have to do with COVID?” Graham questioned. “So if you’re in the farming business today, this bill forgives 120% of your loan based on your race.”
“These people in the Congress today — the House and the Senate on the Democrat side — are out of control liberals. And God help us all if we don’t check and balance them in 2022,” he concluded. Video Below
