Biden Says Second COVID-19 Stimulus Check Will Likely Pass Once Trump Exits.
On Wednesday, President-elect Joe Biden
spoke to a group of frontline workers about a
possible second COVID-19 relief package. .
That package will likely include another
round of direct payments to the public. .
Biden said that Congress would
“hopefully” be more likely to move
forward with the bill once
President Trump leaves office. .
He suggested that Republicans
have been resistant so far
because they’ve feared
“retribution from the president.”.
Hopefully, when he’s gone, they will be
more willing to do what they know should
be done - has to be done - in order to save
the communities they live in, Joe Biden, via Advance Local.
Experts predict that additional direct payments
won’t happen until the first quarter of 2021. .
That prediction is also dependent
upon the Jan. 5 runoff for two
Senate seats in Georgia, which
will decide whether Republicans
remain in control of the Senate. .
The House, which is controlled by Democrats,
has been at odds with the Senate for months
now over a second relief measure. .
Democrats have been pushing for a $2.2 trillion
COVID-19 stimulus bill, while Senate Leader Mitch McConnell wants something around $500 billion.
