On Wednesday, it was reported that Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI), a former member of the Republican Party, could single-handedly screw countless Americans out of relief from the deadly COVID-19 by voting against a unanimous consent measure to pass the stimulus package.
Amash “suggested he may block unanimous consent should the House choose to use it for the coronavirus package, forcing a roll call vote on the emergency funding bill that would require lawmakers to return to Washington. Such a move would delay consideration in the lower chamber of the package, which was agreed to after five days of marathon negotiations between Senate leaders and the Trump administration,” writes the National Review.
“This bipartisan deal is a raw deal for the people,” Amash wrote in a Wednesday morning tweet. “It does far too little for those who need the most help, while providing hundreds of billions in corporate welfare, massively growing government, inhibiting economic adaptation, and widening the gap between the rich and the poor.”
The disgraced anti-Trump Rep. could be further sealing his political doom, as he has both Democrat and Republican challengers running against him in the 2020 election for his Michigan House seat.
