Republican Senator David Perdue (GA) has already started advertising to celebrate his work on the bill, but Trump asked for more funds, which put his plan in trouble. It is now clear that if it were not for the Republican obstructionists, Americans would have a check for $2,000.
Nothing has changed in the bill, so it is not clear why Trump supports it because millions of people have been freed from unemployment, but he did not support it earlier this week.
The House of Representatives can still vote on the $2,000 check, which will continue to cause Republicans to conflict with Democrats and Trump.
According to a Trump statement, the Senate will accept a check for $2,000 that the House of Representatives intends to pass on Monday. This will put the Republicans in trouble, and they will contend with Trump after Trump calls the $600 check a “disgrace.”
Trump said in the statement: “I am signing the bill to restore unemployment benefits, stop evictions, provide rental assistance, increase funds for purchasing power parity, return our aviation workers to work, and add more for vaccine distribution. Money, wait.” It’s not clear why he spent five days caring about these issues. “
“On Monday, the House of Representatives voted to increase payments to individuals from $600 to $2,000. Therefore, a family of four will receive $5,200. In addition, Congress promised that Section 230 would unfairly benefit big technology companies, and Damage to the interests of Americans, the statement will continue to be reviewed, either terminated or major reforms.”
Although McConnell promised to put these things to a vote, despite any promises he made to Trump, he would doubt whether.
