GOP goes on the attack against Biden relief bill [View all]

BY JORDAIN CARNEY - 03/13/21 05:00 PM EST

Republicans are going on the attack against the newly signed $1.9 trillion coronavirus bill as they scramble to find a messaging foothold against Democrats' first big win heading into 2022.

GOP lawmakers, who voted in unison against the legislation, are gambling that they'll be able to tamp down the billís popularity in the long run, even as polls have shown it garners broad approval, including from their own voters.

The focus among congressional Republicans is twofold: highlighting provisions they hope will be damaging to Democrats and accusing their political opponents of trying to take credit for an economic recovery Republicans say was set in motion by the Trump administration.

ďIím not surprised that the American public's initial reaction to this, before they know whatís in it, would be positive. The thought of many Americans getting a $1,400 check, why would they not like that?Ē Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said during an interview with "PBS NewsHour."
