Nancy Pelosi, the House speaker, said that the Democratic Party is all up for the bill proceeding for a vote with consent n unanimously in this week itself. Donald Trump called the $900 billion package passed for Coronavirus relief a shame. He asks Congress on Tuesday to hike the package money, which is to be direct pay-outs to US people.
In a video he posted on Twitter, he said that he had been urging Congress to hike the relief amount from $600. It is too low for anyone to survive in this pandemic. They should at least give $2,000 / $4,000 to couples.
Donald Trump said the previous amount in the amendment not enough
The former President claimed that the amount of $1.4 trillion included in the bill actually comes under omnibus payout. This is not exclusive to Covid relief.
He accused Congress that they had enough money to aid the other countries, lobbyists, and other things but hardly enough money for the US’s own people. The people of the country are really in need.
Small scale businesses and restaurants need more pay-outs to improve their business
The restaurants, small scale businesses saw such a downfall in this crisis of Coronavirus. They badly need money to rejuvenate. Congress should consider giving enough payout to them.
Those people only for exemptions for two years where they give their business to others for use. Trump wants to withdraw from this two year time period. Then owners can get financial aid from the government and get good conditions for their restaurants and businesses. Congress should terminate it as two years is just not long enough.
The bill constitutes a package for the jobless. They will get financial aid, as well as small scales, and businesses will get loans as part of the paycheck Protection Program. The package results in a direct transfer of $600 to every one of them.
The package includes increased jobless benefits, another round of funding for the Coronavirus vaccines distribution.
Donald Trump hopes to get back in the office, promises to bring the bill
Trump said that these unnecessary planned spendings do not get removed from the bill, then future administration would have to build another package for COVID-19 relief.
He still hopes that he will get to the office again, and he will build that package.
According to Chuck Schumer, Republicans were not in favor of $2000 payouts for months. The senate’s D-NY minority leader accused Trump that democrats have been arguing for these payments with Republicans for a long time.
He thinks Trump should sign the bill thinking about the crisis of the people. This way, the administration can work faster and help as many Americans as soon as possible. Trump should for once do a useful thing by not letting Republicans blocking the bill again.
Nancy Pelosi asked Republicans to stop blocking the bill as Democrats are ready to support the bill
Nancy Pelosi accused Republicans of not expressing the exact amount of money Trump want for the direct payouts. She gave credit to the President for thinking about the people of the United States as he wanted more money sanction for them. President finally agreed on $2000, and that’s something positive to work on.
The bill is going to be a due vote with the Democratic party’s all consent this week
Senator Bernie Sanders applauded President Biden’s decision on the $2,000 relief package. He added that he himself introduced the bill with the consent of senator Ed Markey of D-Mass and now vice President senator of D-Calif Kamala Harris.
He said to Trump to bring Mitch McConnell in favour of the bill with other Republicans. All should improve the current situation of working-class people of America by providing the help of $2,000.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib gave the nod to the amendment
US representative D-MI Rashida Tlaib and D-NY Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that they gave their consent sign to the bill already.
Ocasio-Cortez said that she’s happy to extend support to the bill. The $2000 checks will pass provided GOP does not oppose them.
Minority leader Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell, Majority Leader of the Senate, are yet to comment on the development.
