'Squad' introduces bill for $  2,000 stimulus checks backed by Trump

Members of the progressive분대in the House on Thursday introduced their own bill to send $ 2,000 stimulus checks to Americans after 트럼프 대통령 this week demanded the $ 600 checks included in 회의stimulus deal be increased to that number.

“이번 연말 연시, families are being forced to make incredibly difficult decisions, such as whether they should keep their lights on or buy groceries,” Tlaib said in a statement. “Providing $ 2,000 survival checks would give those struggling right now a lifeline as we continue to fight to defeat COVID-19. It’s time for Trump to stop bluffing and get the members of his party in line so that the government can provide this long-overdue relief to people across the country during this time of great need.

Added Pressley: “We’ve been fighting all along for robust survival checks to help people meet their most basic needs, and the broad support that has emerged is a testament to the power of the people and the urgency of this moment. $ 2,000 in direct cash assistance will help families weather the crisis while we continue fighting for additional relief that meets the scale and scope of the hurt so many are feeling. Let’s get it done.

The bill from the “분대” members is different from a separate bill introduced by Rep. Richard Neal, D-Mass., that would do essentially the same thing. Neal’s bill would simply change the numbers in the coronavirus stimulus bill to say $ 2,000 instead of $ 600, and would only come into effect if the stimulus and government funding package Congress recently sent to the president is signed into law. The printed legislation was flown to Mar-a-Lago, where Trump is spending Christmas.

그만큼 “분대” bill however is independent of the rest of the stimulus and directly amends the Internal Revenue Code’s wording as it stands currently after the stimulus Congress passed earlier this year. Therefore that bill could be enacted on its own.

No matter what legislation the House passes on stimulus checks, it faces a tough road ahead in the Senate. Republicans in the upper chamber have been on a different page than the president throughout the coronavirus stimulus efforts and widely opposed $ 2,000 체크 무늬.

Democrats will vote on Monday after 3 오후. on bigger stimulus checks and will also vote to override Trump’s veto of the National Defense Authorization Act. House Republicans blocked a Democrat effort to provide the $ 2,000 checks on the floor Thursday.

Trump’s apparent decision not to sign the massive coronavirus stimulus and government funding package that lawmakers sent to him puts the government at risk of shutting down yet again.

The government is currently operating on a one-week stopgap bill that was meant only to give Trump time to sign the funding package, which members of Congress say they’d been assured he would.

Trump could also potentially use a rare pocket veto on the legislation. The current congressional session ends on Jan. 3, which means if Trump does not sign or veto the spending and stimulus before then it essentially vanishes into thin air, bringing Congress back to square one.

Some in Congress are still hoping Trump will sign the government spending and coronavirus aid package. But it’s not clear exactly what the president’s plans are.

I have no idea what he plans to do,” Blunt said Thursday.
