House Set To Cast Vote On $2,000 Stimulus Check Now That Trump’s Signed COVID Relief Bill

The following article, House Set To Cast Vote On $2,000 Stimulus Check Now That Trump’s Signed COVID Relief Bill, was first published on Flag And Cross.

The House of Representatives is all set to vote Monday on a bill that will provide $2,000 stimulus checks to American citizens instead of the $600 that is included in the COVID-19 stimulus and government funding package that President Trump signed into law on Sunday evening.

The vote follows hot on the heels of the president heavily criticizing the size of the checks included in the bill, along with the ridiculous pork spending in it that featured a massive amount of foreign aid.

Unfortunately, the vote that is to be held on Monday will not be addressing the “pork” spending that the president desired to cut.

“I simply want to get our great people $2000, rather than the measly $600 that is now in the bill,” Trump posted on Twitter over the weekend.

via Fox News:

“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-Calif., said Sunday night.

“Every Republican vote against this bill is a vote to deny the financial hardship that families face and to deny the American people the relief they need,” she added.

The bill the House will vote on Monday was first introduced by Rep. Richard Neal, D-Mass. It’s just a few pages long and simply changes the passages in the stimulus Trump just signed that say $600 to $2,000. That made its enactment dependent on Trump signing the stimulus and spending bill, which was in doubt until Sunday night.

A lot of folks think that President Trump signing the bill into law will release some of the pressure on members of the GOP in the House and the Senate, freeing them up to vote in favor of the increase in the stimulus checks.

The president stated Sunday night that he still plans to send requests to Congress to address the issues with the foreign aid portion of the bill, separately, noting that he’s open to possible dual efforts on the size of the stimulus checks while cutting this particular bit of pork spending.

The Senate, of course, will also have to agree to the increase in the checks if the bill does pass the House.

We’ll just have to wait and see how this all goes. Trump is a master at negotiating deals, so there’s little doubt everybody will win some and lose some in this overall.

Trump is evil! He wants American citizens to get $2000.00 instead of the $600.00 Democrats feel Americans should be happy with.

Too bad the ‘house demacrats’ wish to finance the world including enemies of America and therefore place all their ‘pork’ into this bill. But then, they must feel that it’s not their money, so oh well?
