A surprising twist in the US. It turns out that the US House of Representatives of Congress passed a bill yesterday that increases the coronavirus support for the country’s citizens from $ 600 to $ 2,000. It is expected that the Senate will vote on it, perhaps even today.

2000 USD for everyone and that’s it!

The bill was passed by a vote of 275 to 134. Earlier, President Donald Trump had already signed a bill that made every American (except for the richest citizens) receive $ 600. Earlier, Trump himself said that this amount was too low and had to be raised to $ 2,000, as the Democrats wanted. Republicans remain skeptical of such a policy. They believe that this is an idea for the country’s dangerous further debt.

Interestingly, the Republican Party has been supporting Trump for a long time, so the outgoing president’s volley is very surprising.

Every Republican vote against this bill is a voice that ignores the financial difficulties faced by families and denies Americans the help they need – said Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives quoted by CNN before the vote.

Fight for the scale of the aid program

Earlier Republicans in the House of Representatives had prevented Democrats from issuing checks for $ 2,000. Ultimately, both leading parties reached an agreement, but as you can see, the Democratic Party is still struggling to increase the value of the checks.

When Trump signed the bill on Sunday night, he signaled that he did so only after reassuring the Senate that it would consider increasing direct support from $ 600 to $ 2,000. Mitch McConnell, leader of the Republican majority in the Senate, did not comment on this issue on Sunday. He also praised the president for signing the act ”

But who will get the check? Anyone individually earning under $ 75,000 a year or as a pair of $ 150,000 will receive the full amount. It is reduced by $ 5 for every 100 earned by a person with an income above 75,000.

People who earn over $ 99,000 do not receive such support in practice.

Recall that in the spring, each American (again, except for the richest) received $ 1,200 in a check and $ 500 for each child. Now support was expected to be lower, but Joe Biden’s success in the presidential election could bolster the Democratic Party, which in turn has a chance to increase such spending.
