‘A number of Fatalities’ Together with Police Officer at Boulder Grocery store Mass Capturing – Streaming Video Information Briefing

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) on Sunday defended his decision to vote against a stimulus package that contained provisions similar to laws he supported under former President Donald Trump.

During a Sunday interview on Fox News, host Chris Wallace called Cotton after saying he had opposed the bill signed by President Joe Biden because “prisoners” could get relief checks.

Wallace noted that Cotton had voted for similar COVID-19 relief bills signed by Trump.

“But Senator, under two previous COVID relief bills that you supported and voted for and that President Trump signed, prisoners also got checks on those bills,” Wallace said.

“That was obviously never the intention of Congress,” said Cotton. “The Trump administration, the IRS, and the Treasury did not send any checks to the prisoners. Liberal pressure groups sued to force this. A liberal judge said they had to. “

“This month was the first time we had a simple up or down vote on whether these checks should go to prisoners,” he added. “And the simple fact is, every Democrat voted to keep sending checks to prisoners.”
