Democrats Deliver As House Passes Bill Raising Stimulus Checks To $2,000

House Democrats came through for the American people and passed a bill raising stimulus payments from $600 to $2,000.

The AP reported:

Here was the final vote total:

The bill passed 275-134 with 44 Republicans joining the Democratic majority to vote yes, and only two Democrats voting no.

Trump supposedly supports the increase in payments, but even his support could not convince the majority of House Republicans to provide desperately needed cash assistance to the American people.

The Senate will return on Tuesday, and Democrats have already vowed to bring the bill to the floor.
If Senate Republicans block the assistance, voters in Georgia will know exactly who is responsible as they continue to vote in two critical Senate runoff elections

Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats did their part. The pressure is now on Mitch McConnell and the Senate to either deliver for the American people or hand the Senate to Joe Biden in roughly one week.
