GOP opposition to state and local aid remains as Senate heads toward vote on COVID bill

Sen. Pat Toomey, (R-Pa) expressing his opposition to a COVID-19 relief bill that passed the U.S. House, said Wednesday, “This has nothing to do with COVID. This has nothing to do with the economy. This has everything to do with throwing a whole big pile of money at fiscally irresponsible states.” (Gage Skidmore/Flickr)
