This is one of four parts of the Daily Caller’s exclusive interview with Mike Pence.
Vice President Mike Pence said fiscal conservatism must take a back seat to serious spending measures required to see Americans through the worst of the pandemic, in an exclusive interview with the Daily Caller on Thursday.
Pence’s comments came hours after Senate Democrats struck down Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s attempt to carry another costly coronavirus relief bill through Congress. Pence says he and President Trump plan to return to fiscal conservatism once the current crisis has been addressed.
“President Trump has made it clear we believe providing additional direct support to families, providing additional support and extension of the kind of programs that have literally saved more than 50 million jobs around the country, and other assistance, is is absolutely essential to bring our economy all the way back,” Pence said.
