RELEASE: Sununu Says He Would Vote No On COVID Relief for Granite Staters
Concord, N.H. -- At his COVID press briefing today, Chris Sununu said point-blank that he would side with the Kochs and Washington Republicans and vote “no” on President Biden’s COVID relief bill that would bring billions of dollars in federal relief to Granite Staters hurt by the pandemic. By voting “no” on the COVID-relief bill, here is what Sununu would be voting against:
$1,400 in direct payments to individuals and dependents,
Extending expanded unemployment insurance,
Expanding tax credits for families and for employers who offer paid leave,
Funding for state and local government aid, testing and vaccine activities, schools, restaurants, small business, child care, affordable housing, and more,
Expanding subsidies to purchase health insurance under the Affordable Care Act for two years.
“Chris Sununu made it very clear that he stands with Washington Republicans and the Kochs in opposing much-needed additional relief for New Hampshire families, small businesses, schools, health care providers, and cities and towns,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley. “This is simply another example of how Chris Sununu will always put corporate special interests first and Granite Staters last.”
