Graham: Congress should go 'big and smart' on COVID-19 package
By Jordan Williams - 10/17/20 04:53 PM EDT

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said that Congress should go “big and smart” on the next coronavirus relief package.

During a pre-recorded interview on “Full Court Press with Greta Van Susteren,” to air Sunday, Graham said that he thinks more money is needed, but not with certain policy provisions included in the House proposal.

“The $2.2 trillion coming out of the House has a mandate for ballot harvesting. What's that got to do COVID?” Graham said. “And the $1,200 payment, which I support, doesn't require a Social Security number to get it, so a lot of the money would go to illegal immigrants.”


Graham said that everyone agrees on setting up a Paycheck Protection Program to allow small businesses to get a forgivable loan, and that there’s a lot of “common ground” on helping schools. He also said he was “willing to do some unemployment,” but not $600 per week.
