South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem took aim at President Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package, arguing it was unfair states with strict lockdowns get bailed out by the federal government while states, such as her own, demonstrated businesses could remain open.
“South Dakota kept our state Open for Business, and now we’re a national leader in vaccinations,” Noem said on Twitter. “But the federal COVID bill unfairly bails out states like New York that shutdown their economies. It rewards them for their bad actions. Does Cuomo really need more federal money?”
