Clayton Gillette Interviewed
on COVID-19 Aid Package
Senior Fellow Clayton Gillette was interviewed by WPIX-TV (PIX11) on the $3 trillion COVID-19 aid package. Asked about the $1 trillion that the bill would provide to states and municipalities, Gillette responded:
So we’ve got sort of this perfect fiscal storm that crosses political boundaries, that is not the fault of these political entities of states and local governments....It seems to me that it is the opportunity as well as the obligation of the national government to come in and provide what is necessarily a national solution.
