Stimulus Check On The Verge

The House of Representatives has voted to pass a $3 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. The bill brings the total amount allocated for Covid-19 relief to more than $4 trillion. The bill would increase unemployment benefits for workers who lost their jobs during the pandemic and provide an additional $1,200 stimulus check for taxpayers.

Democrats wanted to include provisions that would force employers to take steps to protect workers from coronavirus and expand funding for testing, but Republicans shot the proposals down. Both sides criticized each other for playing politics during the pandemic, but said they were willing to keep talking about how to help Americans economically recover.”
