Congressman Jerry Carl Votes Against Democrats’ So-Called COVID Relief Bill

March 1, 2021

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jerry Carl (R-Mobile) issued the following statement regarding his vote against H.R. 1319 – The American Rescue Plan.

“Today, I voted against the Democrats’ so-called COVID relief bill because it has almost nothing to do with actual COVID relief and is nothing more than a liberal wish list of special interest pork, including bailouts for cities and states who used lockdowns for political purposes. COVID relief should be temporary, targeted, and related to COVID, but unfortunately, this bill largely ignores hardworking Americans who need relief. I support targeted COVID relief going directly to get students back in the classroom, getting folks back to work, and getting vaccines to all who want them, but I cannot support Democrats’ efforts to push through irresponsible, big-government spending programs in the name of COVID relief.”

Congressman Carl’s office can be reached at 202-225-4931.
