For months, Many Americans have been tolerantly waiting for stimulus checks to be disbursed the second time around.
White House staff, along with the Congressional leaders, permitted yesterday a roughly $900 billion COVID-19 relief package. The package will reportedly include improved federal jobless benefits, small-business funding, and money to allocate on COVID-19 vaccines. CNBC reports that the dollar amount of the stimulus payments was declared as $600 per person.
However, many were displeased with the quantity and many felt that the sum was too low. It wouldn’t be enough for families to draw near with bills and other costs due to the pandemic. It even seems that President Trump is displeased with the amount as well.
Today he shared a video on Twitter where he conversed what he ponders to be faulty about the bill. He said, “I’m asking Congress to amend this bill and increase the ridiculously low $600 to $2,000 or $4,000 for a couple.”
He also spoke out about other rudiments of the bill, including subsidy headed overseas, which came less than 24 hours after the Senate passed the degree. The foreign aid supplies are part of a $1.4 trillion measure to keep the government funded, paired with the Covid relief bill.
One commented, “As he should, thank you, Mr. President.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi promptly responded to Trump on Twitter. She agreed with his request to increase the stimulus amount. She tweeted, “Republicans repeatedly refused to say what amount the President wanted for direct checks. At last, the President has agreed to $2,000 — Democrats are ready to bring this to the Floor this week by unanimous consent. Let’s do it!”
