Cardoza Quoted in Reuters About Next Steps in Washington After Coronavirus

06 March 2020 Reuter's News

Public Affairs Director Dennis Cardoza,  a five-term member of the U.S. House of Representatives from California’s 18th District prior to joining Foley, was quoted in the Reuter’s article, “After U.S. Congress and Fed’s Quick Coronavirus Response, Next Steps Likely Tougher for Washington.”

Cardoza told Reuters that, given the current political environment in Washington, any additional governmental response to coronavirus following the $8.3 billion Congressional bill for vaccine development and other steps may prove harder. 

Congress has spent months on impeaching Trump, and outside of Washington Democrats are about twice as likely as Republicans to say the coronavirus poses an imminent threat, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll. That will make it harder for the two sides to work together to contain the threat, said  Cardoza, who was involved in negotiations in 2008 and 2009. “There’s a lot of mistrust,” he said. “It’s going to be a difficult lift.”
