Mitch McConnell says Senate will start ‘the process’ of considering $ 2,000 checks.
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that the Senate will address President Trump’s push to increase stimulus checks sent to Americans, but made no assurances.

Democrats have called on the Senate to pass legislation raising the stimulus amount from $ 600 aan $ 2,000 because so many Americans are struggling financially due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Some Republicans are worried, egter, that McConnell’s decision to block to quick vote could affect the Georgia runoffs on Jan. 5 that will determine what party controls the Senate.

Trump took to Twitter and warned Republicans that they should support the increased checks unless they have a politicaldeath wish. McConnell acknowledged that Trumpwould like further direct financial support for American households.

He also mentioned that Trump wants Congress to address Section 230 van die Wet op Kommunikasie-ordentlikheid, which provides protection for companies that host third-party content on their platformslike Facebook and Twitterand that Trump wants Congress to look into election security.

Who the hell cares what I think? I’m not an expertwhat am I qualified to talk about?” Gibson remarked. “It’s alright. It allows you a sense of anonymity so that in your performance you can come out and just be anything. You’re not already carrying a lot of baggage. It’s partially intentional.
