Congressman Keller votes against Biden stimulus package
Washington, D.C. — On Saturday, Congressman Fred Keller (R-PA) voted against President Biden's $2 trillion stimulus plan, claiming that the legislation was too partisan and fiscally wasteful.
“Rather than spend trillions more in taxpayer dollars on items unrelated to COVID-19, we should first look at being accountable for the more than $1 trillion that has yet to be spent from previous relief efforts," Keller said.
In Keller's opinion, only 9% of Biden's stimulus plan goes to public health spending.
"Because of the exorbitant price-tag of this proposal and how it has been fast-tracked through Congress, the $1.9 trillion cost must be offset, which could trigger cuts to existing federal programs that seniors, veterans, and farmers rely on," Keller's press team said.
