Sen. Kennedy: Economic Situation ‘Self Induced’ [VIDEO]
US Senator John Kennedy talks to 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the recently passed Payroll Protection Program bill and the President's plan to put America back to work as governors across the country loosen "stay-at-home" restrictions.
The Senator begins by explaining his recent quote, "If people think keeping the economy closed is a good thing then they probably still believe in Big Foot."
Without mentioning names, Kennedy points a left-leaning "television talking heads" for pushing a point of view that America can somehow survive with the economy on lockdown. The Senator also points a finger at Congressional Democrats - specifically Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi for delaying the passage of the Payroll Protection Program that gives aid to small businesses struggling during the quarantines.
