Tuesday, Republican Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) tweeted “Congress should continue helping workers who’ve lost their jobs. But blindly borrowing more than $600 billion so we can send $2,000 checks to millions of people who haven’t lost any income is terrible policy. I won’t consent to a vote on that.”
Toomey said to Tapper “we’re talking about sending checks, the vast majority of which will be going to people who’ve had no loss of income whatsoever,” he said.
“How and why does that make any sense at all?” he asked.
Sunday, Toomey called on Trump to concede the election.
“I think the president should accept the outcome of the election,” Toomey said, adding “He had every right to challenge these votes, he had every right to recounts and to litigate. He has done all of those things in my state of Pennsylvania. He’s drawn conservative Republican judges who’ve dismissed these cases for a lack of any credible evidence.”
