Madison Cawthorn Scorched for Lie Biden COVID Aid Invoice Does not Embody Homeless Vets

US Representative Madison Cawthorn is under fire again, this time over the lie that President Joe Biden’s COVID Relief Act contains no funds to aid homeless veterans. In a xenophobic tweet, Cawthorn, a Republican from North Carolina who voted against the legislation, slammed Democrats for earning $ 86 million in hotels for unaccompanied children crossing the border to seek asylum.

The Biden administrator just cut $ 86 million to get hotel rooms for ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, but we have zero dollars for our homeless veterans who are at high risk of suicide.

In response, many cited the US rescue plan allocating billions to homeless vets and spending an additional $ 1.6 billion through the Veterans Administration budget on homeless veterans.

The American rescue plan, which @CawthornforNC voted against, has allocated $ 14.5 billion to veterans, including suicide prevention and combating homelessness.

In addition, under President Biden, the VA will spend $ 1.6 billion in 2021 to target the homelessness of veterans.

Regardless, the VA reports, the American Rescue Plan Act is allocating $ 17 billion to help veterans during the COVID-19 pandemic, including funds to help 37,000 homeless veterans.

Cawthorn sits on only two boards in the House. One of them is the Veterans Affairs Committee.

Many beat him up for not only voting against Biden’s rescue plan, which is now required by law, but because he didn’t offer a single law to help veterans, including none to help homeless veterans.

Others noted that while trying to delay the passage of the law, Republicans forced an oral reading of the law and delayed its passage by a full day.

You literally voted against the American Rescue Act, which earmarked $ 14.5 billion for veterans, including to combat veterans’ homelessness.

I mean, it’s not that this thing wasn’t read aloud or anything …

How many bills have you put in to help homeless veterans?

– Brian Tyler Cohen (@briantylercohen) March 22, 2021

For the auxiliary bill that you voted against, 17 billion went to veterans, including aid to HOMELESS veterans … You voted AGAINST IT!

– Steve (@stelenj) March 22, 2021

The American bailout that Republican voted against is actually putting billions in helping homeless veterans. So this Republican either didn’t know what he was voting against or he is lying. Maybe both.

Cawthorn is incredibly stupid. He voted against the American Rescue Plan Act, which provides funding for homelessness.

This is proven to be wrong. You are deliberately misleading your constituents.

In politics we call that “a lie”.

Hello Madison. I was at the Naval Academy today and volunteered at the cemetery. You know … the place where you lied about getting admitted to college. What have you done to help veterans and / or their families today? Any new invoices in the works?

– SomewhereInTheGarden (@ claircolette1) March 22, 2021

You know the American bailout plan contains billions for homeless Americans. You voted against.

So if anyone is trying to take money from homeless veterans, it’s you.

Incidentally, I’m on the House VA Committee. If you were careful at the briefings, you would know the American homelessness bailout plan has billions in it, or I don’t know you could legislate to help 🤷🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️ you have not yet written a bill on homelessness in VA

It seems like your “zero dollar” claim is just a little off.

Knot-headed tree stomper.

– Doug Stolzenberg (@DouglasStolzenb) March 22, 2021

You voted against the US rescue plan that allocated billions to the homelessness of veterans.

Fuck your fake patriotism and use veterans as pawns in your political games while proving that you are a goddamn racist.

Receipts. ⤵️

Why is there no penalty for this type of behavior? This guy lies with reckless Abadon about easily verifiable things and can keep his job while no one confronts him in the media about his lies.

– “Aunt Ouakam” (@OuakamA) March 22, 2021

Which he voted AGAINST so that homeless veterans matter to him only if he can use them to get cheap political points.

You’re just a Madison liar. Just garbage
