Stephen K. Bannon said the nearly $2 trillion covid relief bill is the most radical piece of legislation in the past four decades.
“This is the most radical legislation, socially, I’ve ever seen,” Bannon said on Wednesday. “And it comes with money. This is coming with cash money.”
Bannon said first comes the $1.9 trillion bill, but this fall Democrats will add a $2 trillion infrastructure bill and a $2 trillion “Green New Deal.”
“So 1.9 trillion today, it’s breathtaking,” he said. “The Tea Party started on $800 billion on Obama. And we went through a full meltdown.”
Despite the huge spending with only 9 percent going to actual virus relief, Bannon said Republicans are not fighting the legislation.
“It’s kind of crickets up here with Republicans,” Bannon said.
