Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL.) during the House debate on the coronavirus relief stimulus package ahead of the vote gave an electrifying speech in which he called Americans “tough SOBs that are defeated by absolutely nothing.”
The Florida Republican in his remarks Friday urged his fellow colleagues on the House chambers to approve the $2 trillion stimulus package aimed at jolting the economy from the detrimental impact caused from the coronavirus pandemic.
“I would rather die than see my country stumble or fall. And by God, I mean that, and I don’t think I’m the only one in this body that feels this way,” Mast said on the House floor, adding he didn’t want to see the economy stumble because of “a virus that was born in a disgusting market in Wuhan, China, that was hidden from the world.”
