Democratic efforts to provide Americans with stimulus checks of $2,000 will be influenced in large part by the outcome of Tuesday’s Senate runoffs in Georgia, a top House lawmaker said this week.
“I think it’s more contingent upon what happens on Jan. 5,” House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal (D-Mass.) told reporters Sunday when asked about the timing of future legislation on direct payments.
The article goes on to state the following:
Democrats, as well as President Trump and some Republican lawmakers, are pushing to increase the $600 stimulus payments in a new coronavirus relief law to $2,000. The House last week passed a bill to increase the payment amount to $2,000, with 44 Republicans joining most Democrats in supporting the measure. But the bill was not taken up by the GOP-controlled Senate.
I urge the Senate to think of their constituents and neighbors back home who are simply trying to survive each day.
@senatemajldr, bring this bill to a vote and do what’s right for your fellow Americans. https://t.co/X5keZsSW8b
