Virginia Rep. Cline responds to coronavirus concerns


WASHINGTON (WFXR) — U.S. Rep. Ben Cline (R-Va.) recently spoke with WFXR about the coronavirus pandemic.

Cline says he believes President Donald Trump’s address on Wednesday, March 11 demonstrated strength by reassuring Americans that the government is taking all necessary steps to keep people safe and find a vaccine as soon as possible. However, Cline says the address also encouraged Americans to take action against the coronavirus themselves by avoiding large crowds, washing their hands, coughing into their elbows, not touching their faces, etc.

When asked about the financial aid bill circulating through Congress, Cline voiced his concerns because not only does the bill not limit the amount of spending that would be available, but it was also pushed through at night without offering members a chance to review it.

“I understand the need for speed in this case, but when you’re dealing with such a large piece of legislation, it’s important to stop and look at what’s in it,” says Cline.
