possible, as quickly as possible.

Return to Fiscal Responsibility: Cosponsor WUHAN Rescissions

While that governmental management is needed to protect public health, the economic damage is staggering, and stimulating the economy towards recovery was the right step to take.

With the growing spread of COVID-19, it has become increasingly difficult for disabled Americans to receive the services they need, including education, medical care, and daily activities. Additionally, people with underlying health conditions or disabilities
