(DailyFix.org) – In 2020, Congress authorized three COVID-relief measures to help businesses and individuals get through the worst of the initial phases of the pandemic. Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) argued the relief measures were necessary at the time. But in 2021, Democrats allowed unnecessary government programs to linger.
As a result, the House Ways and Means Committee ranking member said the programs became some of the most flawed and wasteful ever created by Congress. Brady alleged that the Biden administration was covering up massive pandemic relief fraud.
Brady accused Democrats of turning a blind eye to one of the greatest thefts of taxpayer dollars in American history. He said $80 billion of pandemic unemployment money went to organized cybercriminals and international crime rings instead of Americans who needed it.
