A Republican senator, Roger Wicker of Mississippi, had been accurately criticized on similar grounds two days prior. But the criticism of Salazar is inaccurate. Here are the facts.
On Friday, the day after President Joe Biden signed the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan into law, Salazar tweeted the word "#BREAKING" with siren images around it, then wrote, "So proud to announce that the Biden Administration has just implemented my bipartisan COVID relief bill as part of @SBAgov policy!" Salazar, a freshman member of the House, included a hyperlink and an image that explained that she was talking about the Biden administration's just-announced decision to give small businesses more time to pay back Economic Injury Disaster Loans. Many commentators assumed Salazar was applauding a part of the American Rescue Plan. But she was not.
