拜登建议他允许COVID-19救济法案在“和解”下移动’ 具有GOP支持

Biden suggests he would allow COVID-19 relief bill to move under 'reconciliation' with GOP support

拜登总统 told reporters Thursday that 新冠病毒 relief will be passed with or without the support of congressional Republicans.

When asked if the president supports Democratscalls to use a legislative process known as budgetreconciliationto get another stimulus package expedited through Congress, 拜登说, “I support passing it with support from Republicans if we can get it.

But the relief has to pass,” 他加了. “No ifs and or buts.

众议院议长 南希·佩洛西, D-Calif。, 星期四宣布, that the House will bring a budget resolution to the floor next week for Biden’s $ 1.9 trillion relief package – the first step in advancing a bill through the reconciliation process.

The Senate will then vote to adopt the resolution. Budget reconciliations require only a simple majority to pass, as opposed to the 60 votes needed for most legislation. Democrats hold a majoriy in the House. The Senate is even, but Democrats have an effective majority because Vice President Kamala Harris has the tie-breaking vote.

But the $ 1.9 trillion resolution is unlikely to garner much Republican support, as several GOP lawmakers have already voiced concern over the large price tag and ardently opposed increasing the previous amount allotted to individual stimulus checkseven after President Trump called on them to do so.

I hope we don’t need it, but if needed we will have it,” Pelosi told reporters Thursday. “We want it to be bipartisan always, but we can’t surrender.

参议院多数党领袖查克·舒默(Chuck Schumer), D-N.Y。, reiterated Pelosi’s calls for a bipartisan bill but said it will be passedwithoutRepublican lawmakers if they oppose the legislation.

Our preference is to make this important work bipartisan, to include input, ideas, and revisions from our Republican colleagues or bipartisan efforts to do the same. But if our Republican colleagues decide to oppose this urgent and necessary legislation, we will have to move forward without them,” Schumer said on the Senate floor 星期四.
