Press release

WASHINGTON— Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) released the following statement after voting against H.R. 1319, the Biden Bailout package.

“The Biden Bailout is exactly what it sounds like: a bill full of wasteful government spending, blue state bailouts, and Democratic wish list items that hinder our economic recovery from the pandemic,” Mullin said. “Of the $1.9 trillion, only 9 percent will actually go to COVID relief and 45 percent isn’t even going to be used this year. That is unacceptable and reckless. With $1 trillion from previously enacted relief bills still unspent, we should be focusing on getting that relief to those who need it most and getting our economy fully reopened.”

H.R. 1319 costs $1.9 trillion and includes:

$510 billion for Democrat-run states that chose to shut down
$471 billion for liberal policies that destroy jobs
$422 billion for another round of direct government payments to individuals
$325 billion for non-COVID Democratic wish list items
Only $160 billion for actually combatting COVID-19
$12 billion in foreign aid
And a federal mandate forcing states to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour
