Senator Marshall: The Pandemic is Over but Joe Biden is Still Lighting your Money on Fire Through Covid Pandemic Spending

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall joined a press conference with Senators Schmitt (R-MO), Ricketts (R-NE) and Johnson (R-WI) to expose the way this administration is continuing to break the law by misusing and exploiting Covid pandemic level funds costing taxpayers $13 Billion. The pandemic is over and this slush fund must end.

Highlights from Senator Marshall’s remarks include:

“What a great opportunity to start by saving Americans [money] by clawing back $13 billion. I want to drill down and put this into perspective for folks back home. Gas has risen 55%, groceries up 21%, I think it’s a lot more than that. When I go to the grocery store, it feels like 30% and 40%, baby food up 30%.”

“How about school children’s school lunches up 65%, 65% for school lunches… Electricity up 28%, rent’s up 20%, the average American family or Kansas family is spending $1,000 more a month just for basic necessities: rent, groceries, gasoline, that type of thing. $1,000 a month.”

“So I’m honored to be here today as I join my colleagues in exposing another way Joe Biden is doubling down and lighting more of your hard earned dollars on fire through illegal Covid pandemic spending. So as far as I’m concerned, this is illegal spending.”

“Folks, the pandemic is over. Thank goodness, thank God, the pandemic is over. It’s been over for years now. We’ve seen different folks back home, you know, trying to use these Covid dollars, they built golf courses and swimming pools, they’re spending them on illegal immigrants, that type of thing – that was not the intent of these dollars. So it’s time to stop this $13 billion Joe Biden slush fund, rein him back in, and just proud again to join Senator Schmitt today to try to claw back $13 billion of Americans’ hard earned money.”
