在星期一, House lawmakers are returning to Washington, 直流电, to vote on raising stimulus checks to $ 2,000, something that 特朗普总统 和房子 Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif。, have pushed for and many Democrats and some Republicans have supported.
“As president, I have told Congress that I want far less wasteful spending and more money going to the American people in the form of $ 2,000 checks per adult and $ 600 per child,” Trump said in a 声明 issued by White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere on Sunday.
President Trump objected to foreign aid in the spending provision of the combination measure – even though the president requested much of that money in his budget request sent to Congress earlier this year. Many Republicans opposed any stimulus checks, but after wrangling, the sides settled on $ 600 支票. 上个星期, Trump demanded $ 2,000 direct payments and refused to sign the legislation into law.
House Democrats then prepped a bill to provide for $ 2,000 payment checks. This bill is expected to be on the floor late Monday.
“We’ve learned a lot about the virus. Businesses are able to make the adjustments locally,” Webb noted on Monday.
He also addressed concern from critics who believe the stimulus checks will go to people who don’t need the money or who shouldn’t get the money.
“There are a lot of people out there who will have to pay back the money. You know who they are? All of the taxpayers, our children, our grandchildren,” Webb said.
“We’re literally spending our way into more poverty and more debt as a country. That’s not fair.”
