Washington, D.C. — In case you missed it, today Congressman Fred Keller (R-PA) appeared live on Fox and Friends First to discuss the ongoing COVID-19 relief talks underway in Congress.

During his interview with Todd Piro and Jillian Mele, Keller weighed in on the likelihood of additional COVID-19 relief being delivered to the American people in a bipartisan manner, highlighting that President Biden must prioritize reopening schools and businesses rather than issue job-killing executive orders that are counterproductive to the nation’s economic recovery.

Keller made the following comments on additional COVID-19 relief:

We need to focus on the small businesses and workers that are suffering. We don’t need to just be looking at broad bailouts of states who made bad decisions in the past.

The best stimulus is a job, where somebody can go to work and they can get a check every pay period and move us forward.

The price tag that the Biden Administration has on this is going to put our kids into debt. They’re talking $2 trillion for their bill.

[Democrats] tried this before when they held up the stimulus that was ready in August, and the Speaker didn’t run it until December.

They need to get off the dime and get things moving for the people who need it.
