Mark Kelly on Budget & Economy

 

 


COVID: supports federal aid to states and cities

Q: COVID 19: Support federal financial aid to help states and cities?

Mark Kelly: Yes. "Congress cannot let Arizona cities and towns go bankrupt in their fight against COVID-19--that would only hurt Arizonans and our economy."

Martha McSally: No. "This is not the time for states and cities who have mismanaged their budgets over the course of many decades to see you, as a taxpayer in Arizona, as a cash cow."

Voted YES on $900 billion COVID relief package.

Kelly voted YEA Consolidated Appropriations Act (COVID Relief bill)

NPR summary of HR133:

Argument in opposition: Rep. Alex Mooney (R-WV-2) said after voting against H.R. 133: "Congress voted to spend another $2.3 trillion [$900 billion for COVID relief], which will grow our national debt to about $29 trillion. The federal government will again have to borrow money from nations like China. This massive debt is being passed on to our children and grandchildren. With multiple vaccines on the way thanks to President Trump and Operation Warp Speed, we do not need to pile on so much additional debt. Now is the time to safely reopen our schools and our economy. HR133 was another 5593-page bill put together behind closed doors and released moments prior to the vote."

Legislative outcome: Passed House 327-85-18, Roll #250, on Dec. 21. 2020; Passed Senate 92-6-2, Roll #289, on Dec. 21; signed by President Trump on Dec 27 [after asking for an increase from $600 to $2,000 per person, which was introduced as a separate vote].
