This comes in response to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) saying Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) is engaging in “cancel culture” for voting to impeach Trump for his role in the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. Scarborough, noting McCarthy, Sen.

But according to an analysis from the non-partisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, the number is a bit more complicated. About 25 percent would be … [Read more...] about Unlike Trump’s COVID Bills, Biden’s $1.9 Trillion Plan Largely Spends Money On The Virus
