Joe Biden railed against the coronavirus stimulus packages in an interview published Saturday, calling corporate America “greedy as hell” while demanding legislation that includes stricter conditions on business bailouts and more oversight of the Trump administration.
In theinterview with Politico, the former vice president said the next stimulus bill should be “a hell of a lot bigger” than the first $2 trillion CARES Act and assailed big business and banks.
“This is the second time we’ve bailed their asses out,” he said of the big banks.
The presumptive Democratic nominee also said banks likeWells Fargo & Co. are “only alive because of the American taxpayer” and criticized them for prioritizing large corporate clients in securing money from the stimulus package that was set aside for small businesses.
