The U.S. House of Representatives voted on Monday to pass a bill to increase, Of which 275 members voted for the bill, and 134 members voted against it. The bill was passed by the required two-thirds majority of MPs.
But the Senate faces an uncertain future, and the Senate needs a two-thirds majority to make the bill enter President Trump’s desk. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Mitch McConnell) has yet to say whether it will vote on the larger check.
Senator Bernie Sanders, a supporter of the $2,000 check, asked McConnell to vote. He tweeted that if McConnell does not vote, then he will oppose the vote to overthrow Mr. Trump̵
Trump urged Congress last week to increase the stimulus check to $2,000 and threatened whether to sign a COVID-19 relief economic relief plan that would give Americans a $600 check.But on Sunday night, the president.
Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi (Nancy Pelosi) immediately jumped out of the president’s insistence on the $2,000 check, which was passed in a vote in the House of Representatives on Monday.
Almost all Democrats voted for legislation to increase checks, and most of the members opposed to increasing checks are Republicans.
A handful of Senator Republicans, including Senator Josh Hawley and Trump ally Lindsey Graham, support the idea of a larger stimulus check on all Americans, but It may encounter friction from members of the party whose finances are more conservative.
This is a developing story and will be updated.
