Pelosi presses McConnell to hold vote on $2,000 COVID-19 relief cheques

1 min read

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday called Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, to meet President Donald Trump’s demand for $2,000 COVID-19 relief cheques and to allow a vote to the floor of the Senate.

Democratic lawmakers have long wanted $2,000 relief checks and used the rare point of agreement with Trump to advance the proposal – or at least to put Republicans on record against it – in the vote on Monday, less than a month before he leaves office.

"It’s amazing to see the patience that some people have with other people suffering… We urge Mitch McConnell to stop his obstruction and to bring that legislation to the floor of the Senate."

Trump last week threatened to block a massive pandemic aid and spending package if Congress did not boost stimulus payments from $600 to $2,000 and cut other spending. He backed down from his demands on Sunday as a possible government shutdown loomed, brought on by the fight with lawmakers.
