Cassidy Issues Statement on Trump COVID Relief Executive Orders


WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) issued the following statement in support of President Trump's executive orders to extend COVID-19 relief to Americans.

'President Trump is doing what Nancy Pelosi won't do: provide direct aid to Americans who need it. Republicans have repeatedly offered to extend unemployment; she refuses each time, preferring instead to use this lifeline for political leverage to advance liberal special interests. Ms. Pelosi should put politics aside and work for the common good,' said Dr. Cassidy.
