Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., says Democrats’ $1.9 trillion COVID-19 bill, among other things, has “only about 10% of the bill that actually deals with COVID and the other components that are in the bill, there’s $350 billion to bail out the blue States.”


Blackburn, today’s guest on “The Daily Signal Podcast,” also says that “Nancy Pelosi wants $112 million for the Bay Area Rapid Transit, so that people can get from San Francisco to Silicon Valley to work on all of those six figure jobs.”
