Nancy Pelosi thinks it may be time to look at a guaranteed minimum income for Americans. The Speaker of the House spoke to MSNBC about the concept.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) plans to introduce a provision known in Washington as the “No PR Act” in the next coronavirus stimulus package to bar President Donald Trump from placing his name on any additional stimulus checks. The legislation “would prohibit the use of federal dollars toward any material that promotes Trump or Vice President Mike Pence’s names or signatures,” according to Politico.
Americans won’t likely see direct payments from the coronavirus stimulus bill until April 13, and the Trump administration says it could take 20 weeks for all the checks to be mailed. The news comes via a Democratic memo from the House Ways and Means Committee obtained by CNN.
Republican Senators like Lindsey Graham and Ben Sasse are blocking the coronavirus stimulus bill because they think it is too good to laid-off people.
Speaker Pelosi shot down Mitch McConnell's pro-corporation coronavirus stimulus bill as a non-starter for the American people.
According to experts, the Senate Republican coronavirus stimulus plan would benefit the better off while giving poor and working people little help.
