Democrats in Congress have passed President Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID Relief bill, without a single Republican vote in the House or Senate. If you have lost your job, face eviction, or need money to pay bills, or buy food, you have a lot to celebrate: Coming your way from Democrats: $1,400 stimulus checks for people with incomes below $75,000/person; $300/week unemployment benefits; Child Tax Credit increase to $3,600/child under age 7, $3,000/child over age 7; $130 billion school reopening improvements; $46 billion COVID vaccines and testing; $350 billion state and local government funding of services and more. Coming your way from Republicans: 0. 

Do Republicans believe that their constituents don’t need this assistance, or do they just not care? Are they unwilling to help Americans when a Democratic president is in charge? If you don’t approve of these benefits which will be spent and boost the economy and help small businesses stay open, then please consider sending your stimulus check to the local food bank.

President Biden's $1.9 trillion Covid-19 relief bill is favorably supported by a large majority of the American people...including a near majority of Republicans. Not a single Republican Congressman voted for it. An embarrassing display of being out of touch with the needs of ordinary Americans.

What you will see from a lot of Republican Congressmen when they go back to their home states and face their constituents is a lot of lying as they try to take credit for the help now coming down the pipeline.

President Biden's $1.9 trillion Covid-19 relief bill does more for the middle-class and poorest Americans, especially children, than anything Donald Trump did in 4 years in office. The Administration needed to go “big” and they did. The bill being bloated is only an opinion, I’m pretty sure the parents of young children who they are struggling to feed will appreciate the tax credits, which was not part of the Republican “proposal." Brenda does a very good job spelling out, in simple, straight-forward terms, where the money is going and it’s clear what kind of positive impact the spending will have across the economy.

Democrats removed Republicans from the drafting process, and in February the Biden regime rejected a $618 billion stimulus counteroffer put forth by a group of 10 Senate Republicans. The GOP counteroffer was a sensible, more fiscally sound alternative to the bloated, non-targeted democrat plan.
