House and Senate Democrats are seizing on President Donald Trump’s support for an increase in the amount of money available to individual taxpayers for coronavirus relief and have pledged to put $2,000 stimulus checks on the Congressional agenda for when legislators return from the holiday break.
“In a video address Tuesday night, Trump called the proposed stimulus checks of $600 included in the economic relief bill that Congress passed Monday ‘ridiculously low’ and said the payments should be more than tripled — a proposal that many Democrats immediately lined up behind,” Fox News reported Wednesday.
As the Daily Wire noted Tuesday night, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and other House progressives immediately backed the president’s call for a $2,000 individual stimulus check, and Ocasio-Cortez quickly marshaled support from other members of the “Squad.” By late Wednesday night, Ocasio-Cortez and others already had the amendment authored and ready for debate.
Let’s do it. @RashidaTlaib and I already co-wrote the COVID amendment for $2,000 checks, so it’s ready to go.
Glad to see the President is willing to support our legislation.
