Scott Wildly (And Falsely) Claims COVID Relief Bill Will Hurt Poor Families Amid Scattered GOP Response

Congressional Republicans are staunchly opposed to the COVID-19 relief package that is poised to pass the House early this afternoon. But they're less unified as to why.

Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) came out swinging on Tuesday with perhaps the most disingenuous argument against it yet.

"Who hurts, gets hurt? Poor families," Scott said on Fox News. "They're not helping poor families with this, they're hurting poor families."

The package is directly targeted at low-income people and families, and researchers have already found that it will profoundly lower the poverty rate. Columbia University's Center on Poverty and Social Policy found that it would halve child poverty and reduce adult poverty by a quarter. A new study from the Urban Institute found that the package would reduce the overall poverty rate in 2021 by more than a third, specifically lowering the rate by 42 percent for Black people, 39 percent for Hispanic people and 34 percent for white people.

Never thought I'd be so glad to see President Alfred E Newman in a PSA but his presence will reach people the other three never could.
