Nunes warns $1.9 trillion COVID package is another Democratic ‘slush fund, and ‘Trojan horse’
California GOP Rep. Devin Nunes on Saturday slammed the Democrat-led $1.9 trillion COVID relief package passed in the House overnight as a “slush fund” and warned that Democrats now in control of Washington will turn America into his liberal-leaning home state.
“This $2 trillion bill, this is a slush fund,” Nunes said at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, this year in Orlando, Fla.
He also warned that the measure – now headed to the 50-50 split Senate – is similar to the one Democratic President Obama signed at the start of his administration.
“People may forget. But when Obama was first elected back in 2009, what did they say, ‘We have to have a stimulus bill or the whole economy is going to collapse.’ And so they passed a roughly $800 billion bill. That money was used over the next four years (by Democrats) to buy votes to give to their buddies. And I guarantee you most of that money did not end up in red states or Republican districts. This is another California Special.”
Is anyone surprised by this?
“It’s a slush fund. These guys are very predictable. They ran this play call before,” Nunes said.

Democrats are using COVID as an excuse to get spending they wouldn’t get otherwise. What a shock.
