Nancy Pelosi: House Remain in Session For COVID-19 Stimulus Check 2!
Everyone has been wonder what is up with the Stimulus check 2, and now speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday the House will remain in session until lawmakers deliver another round of COVID-19 Stimulus Check 2. Read on…
CelebnPolitics247.com reports that Nancy Pelosi is putting her foot down continuing not to budge when it comes to the Stimulus check 2 aka COVID-19 relief.
It’s a move that came as Democrats from swing districts signaled discontent with a standoff that could force them to face voters without delivering more aid.
We previously reported on the hold-up and what is going on with the Stimulus check 2.
Pelosi said on CNBC.
We are committed to staying here until we have an agreement, an agreement that meets the needs of the American people.
COVID-19 Stimulus Check 2 Details:
The Chicago Tribune reports:
The plan contains many elements of COVID rescue packages devised by both House Democrats and Republicans controlling the Senate, including aid to schools, funding for state and local governments, and renewal of lapsed COVID-related jobless benefits.
The price tag is significantly less than the $2.2 trillion figure cited by Pelosi but it’s also well above an approximately $650 billion Senate GOP plan that failed last week due to Democratic opposition.
The Problem Solvers measure contains another round of $1,200 direct payments favored by Trump and Democrats but rejected by Senate Republicans in their most recent bill. It contains a liability shield against lawsuits brought against businesses that have reopened their doors that’s favored by Republicans but opposed by Pelosi and trial lawyers.
Meanwhile, CNET reports:
As it turns out, you could be up for an even larger sum this time around… if Congress restarts talks to finalize a stimulus bill before the Nov. 3 election, or perhaps if an executive action authorizes another round of payments.
Hopefully, there is a Stimulus Check 2 in the coming weeks.
