MARK LEVIN: This next round of spending is a disaster. You can't push this kind of money into an economy and then say that we're going to put people to work when you're telling people not to work.


You're going to create massive inflation. If you're right, if you're right and I'm wrong, then we will have Venezuela -- that is, if you do what you say you're going to do, you're going to be pouring money into industries that are not open. You're going to be creating jobs that don't exist. And most of what you're spending money on, by the way, does not create jobs. It tells employers you can get a loan if you continue to employ those people. If I'm a restaurant, why would I take a loan to employ people who aren't servicing guests? That doesn't even make any sense. If I'm a worker, why would I work four months when I can get 100% of what I was paid for not working you might there's a lot of real stupidity in these bills. Don't pass another bill. Open up parts of the economy. Ask these businesses what they can do and tell these governors to cut it out.
