President Joe Biden has put together a $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief plan which is soon to pass the third stimulus check of $1400 to eligible Americans by the end of February. This information was revealed by Nancy Pelosi herself who is the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives.
At the starting of this month, some Republican lawmakers came up with an alternative stimulus plan that involved lowering the checks to $1000 per person and thus lowering the income cap for receiving payment. To this President, Joe Biden replied that he won’t be doing that at all as the citizens of America were promised $1400 and that’s what they will be getting. He also expressed his thoughts on the needy ones being targeted first for this bill.
The Senate then backed Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus plan which is called the American Rescue Plan, with Vice President Kamala Harris on this budget solution. The House just needs to approve this through voting to deliver this bill and Nancy Pelosi has full confidence that Congress will pass this before March 14.
Former president of the United States, Donald Trump too came up with a relief package of $900 billion in late December of last year, this included deferral unemployment benefits as well which was to be passed on by March 14.
Two House members, Lisa Blunt Rochester of Delaware and Republican David McKinley of West Virginia proposed a standalone stimulus check bill, McKinley said that bypassing this third round of stimulus check millions of American families of this country will be getting the help they so desperately need, he also said that as Congress continues to negotiate the COVID-19 relief measures, families in need of this should get direct assistance first.
Senators Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Susan Collins of Maine will be making sure that the people earning more don’t get these payments.
