“For eight months, Wisconsin Republicans have refused to take any action to stop the spread of COVID-19 or to provide meaningful economic relief to Wisconsinites. Instead, they’ve put up roadblocks to make it harder for our state to combat this dangerous virus. As a result, many in our community have lost their lives and livelihoods because of their obstruction and inaction,” said Rep. Hong.
“Today, instead of listening to the pleas of their constituents or of Wisconsin’s health leaders, Republicans prioritized special interest handouts that will do nothing to help our state recover and instead endanger more lives.”
“I was proud to vote for legislative Democrats’ amendment, which would continue funding Wisconsin’s public health response and support Wisconsin families and individuals who are struggling to make ends meet because of COVID-19. Now is the time for state leaders to come together and put the people of Wisconsin first; I urge the ‘leaders’ across the aisle to do their jobs and serve the people.”
