The American people may regret getting the coronavirus stimulus checks down the line, Fox News contributor Karl Rove argued on "Varney & Co." Friday, doubling down on his Wall Street Journal opinion article.

HOW MUCH MONEY EACH STATE WILL RECEIVE FROM BIDEN'S CORONAVIRUS RELIEF BILL

Karl Rove:“Well, we're a practical people. Seventy-five percent of Americans are going to get these checks, and how many of those people are going to say, why am I getting the check? I've got a couple of friends in South Carolina; Two retired ladies: A mother in law, an aunt of a friend of mine. They got their $600 checks last year. Their first response was, why did they send them to us?” And think about this, the United States Senate turned down an amendment to deny checks to felons. People who've been in jail for a year. So they got in there before covid started. They're going to get checks. College students are going to get checks. They refused to go on record and say we're going to deny checks to illegal aliens.”
