ICYMI: Burgess to Fox & Friends First: We could have had COVID-19 relief on Friday
Washington, D.C. – Monday morning, Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), a member of the House Rules Committee and Republican Leader of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, spoke on Fox & Friends First about Democrat obstruction on further coronavirus relief legislation and the president’s health.
Here are the highlights:
Where do we stand on stimulus? “Well Speaker Pelosi had it entirely within her power to have this done on Friday before Congress left town. She’s been the one who’s been the obstacle… People were ready… So, terribly unfortunate because I know a lot of people are waiting to see what’s going to happen, but right now the difficulty is at the office of the Speaker of the House.”
The President’s health: “Well from everything I can see, from the released videos from him being out in the motorcade last night, he appears to be doing extremely well. But make no mistake about it, this is a serious illness and the President is taking it very seriously as are his, is his medical team, and his medical team seems to be doing an excellent job so, good for them. We need the President to be better. The country needs the President to be better, and we wish him back on the job as soon as possible.”
