Trump Signs $600 Stimulus, U.S. Lawmakers Expected to Vote on $2,000 for Americans Today

BREAKING – U.S. House has voted yes on $2,000 Stimulus Relief for Americans.

President Donald Trump has signed the $900 billion COVID package that will deliver relief cash to businesses and individuals, which includes direct $600 payments to Americans.

However, the House plans to vote on a measure to increase stimulus checks to $2,000 on Monday, and in a statement released by Trump on Sunday night, he said the Senate would also “start the process for a vote that increases checks to $2,000.”

“I simply want to get our great people $2000, rather than the measly $600 that is now in the bill,” Trump said in a tweet.

“Now, the President must immediately call on Congressional Republicans to end their obstruction and to join him and Democrats in support of our stand-alone legislation to increase direct payment checks to $2,000, which will be brought to the Floor tomorrow,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA., said Sunday night.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement Sunday, “I applaud the President’s decision to get billions of dollars of crucial COVID-19 relief out the door and into the hands of American families. I am glad the American people will receive this much-needed assistance as our nation continues battling this pandemic.” But made no mention of if the Senate would approve the $2,000 direct payment measure.

“The House will pass a bill to give Americans $2,000 checks. Then I will move to pass it in the Senate. No Democrats will object. Will Senate Republicans?”, said Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer.

  1. They should increase it. Stupid aholes in office that think $2000 is too much are oblivious to whats going on? PEOPLE CANT WORK!!!! PEOPLE LOST JOBS, HAVE THEIR BUSINESSES SHUT DOWNAND HAVE NO MEANS TO EVEN FEED THEIR FAMILIES OR THEMSELVES!!! Hell even $2000 a person won’t last… come on… NOT EVERYONE HAS A SET INCOME LIKE THEM COMING IN, LET ALONE AT THE AMOUNT THEY MAKE!!!
    They should not get paid and see how they do.

  2. $600 is a joke! $2,000 is much needed but still falls short when you consider the number of months people have been suffering!
