White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow on reacted on Friday to the stalled coronavirus stimulus negotiations in the Senate aimed to help the economy amid the ongoing pandemic.
Kudlow, on Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Company,” pointed out that both Republicans and Democrats have agreed on certain elements of the bill at various times. He added that he does not “think the recovery hinges on this bill,” but he acknowledged that “the reality is it would help.”
“Although I don’t think the recovery hinges on this bill, the reality is it would help, OK,” Kudlow stated. “So, I don’t understand the logic. Why not do it?”
Host Stuart Varney opined that Democrats might not want to help the economy recover so they can pin the issue on President Donald Trump.
“I’m just trying to stay on the policy side of this because the things I mentioned are all good things,” Kudlow outlined.
