Press Release

NASHVILLE U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper (TN-05) released the following statement about the Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions (HEROES) Act, H.R. 6800, which is expected to pass the House tonight:

“The HEROES Act may be bold, but it is what is needed to help America recover and begin healing. The CARES Act—the largest economic relief bill in history—was not nearly enough, and the Federal Reserve Chairman has said we need additional relief, which may be costly but worth it to avoid long-term economic damage,” Rep. Cooper said. “We have passed four COVID-19 relief bills with near unanimous support in both the House and Senate, but Republicans now seem more intent on saving their election chances than saving America. The only thing that matters right now is defeating a dangerous virus, helping the people and small businesses that are hurting and financially at the end of their rope, and rescuing our economy.”
