Nashville, TN – Republican Senate candidate and conservative outsider Dr. Manny Sethi comments on Washington’s coronavirus (COVID-19) stimulus plans being debated in Congress:
“I’m a doctor. I’ve been worried about this virus for months. I appreciate President Donald Trump’s effort to do something.”
“But our country faces not only serious health concerns, but economic ones as well. Congress already spent a trillion dollars this week, and is considering more proposals each bigger than the bailouts of 2008.”
“We’ve got tough decisions ahead, but before we saddle our kids with massive debt, it’s time to slow down, have a debate, and explain to the American people, who need help, what the choices are before us. Washington needs to put Main Street first, not Wall Street.”
“Just shoveling cash out the back of a truck so that Congress can tell themselves they’ve done something is the wrong answer.”
