Multiple Republican lawmakers this week joined the ranks of Republicans who are touting and even boasting about the recent COVID relief package, in spite of the fact that every single one of them voted against it. They are encouraging their constituents to sign up for relief provisions for small businesses, but neglecting to tell them that they didn’t even want to give them this helping hand because it was proposed by Democrats. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.
