Diaz-Balart: Pelosi's Partisan, Reckless Spending Bill Harms America's Future

May 15, 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. ­­–– Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) released the following statement regarding H.R. 6800, the "HEROES Act."

"This $3 trillion, 1,800-page legislation is an irresponsible, blatantly partisan effort that was written behind closed doors by Speaker Nancy Pelosi. It's shameful that during this time of crisis, House Leadership is wasting invaluable time on a bill that is nothing more than a wasteful spending wish list that will never become law. While we must continue to help the American people, we cannot lose sight of excessive, reckless spending and the long-term adverse effects it will have on our children and grandchildren. House Democratic Leadership should put politics aside and work across the aisle to reach a bipartisan agreement for the American people who desperately need it."
