This Tuesday, Mitch McConnell, leader of the Republican majority in the Senate, announced a new Democratic proposal on an economic stimulus package that will help the country weather the onslaught of the pandemic. He added that he will push for a vote this week on this new aid plan.

There are many who wait for the progress of the negotiations between Republicans and Democrats, but this new package it may not include the $ 1,200 for families.

“Today, the Republican Senate majority presents a new proposal, focused on the most pressing issues of health care, education and the economy,” McConnell said in a statement.

He added that this initiative promotes only some of the ideas that have been discussed within the Republican party. “It does not contain all the ideas that our party likes,” he said. “I trust the Democrats will feel the same. Still, Republicans believe that the many serious differences between the two parties should not hamper an agreement where we can agree and create a law that helps our nation. “

McConnell He also stated that he will work urgently for the vote on a new economic package this week.

“I will mobilize immediately today to establish a vote as early as this week,” he said in the statement.

The Republican Majority Leader in the Senate did not give a figure for this proposal; but according to media it could reach 500,000 million dollars.

This project would not include a second round of checks for families; Although it would include federal unemployment benefits, more money for the Payroll Protection Program, financial aid for schools and funds for the application of more coronavirus tests, according to EFE.

“Senate Republicans have been trying for months to bring more relief from COVID-19 to American families. Spokeswoman Pelosi and Leader Schumer have blocked us at all times. Every action has suggested that they just don’t want families to get more bipartisan help before the election, ”he wrote via twitter.

The previous Republican proposal amounted to 1 trillion dollars, but the Democrats rejected it in favor of the one they had raised of 2.2 trillion.

Democrats have already stated that with this new plan, which would be less than expected, aid to the country would be short and therefore they will not support it.

“After months of inaction, Republicans are finally realizing the damage their hiatus has done to the American economy and the health of our nation,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “As they fight to make up for this historic mistake, Senate Republicans appear to be stuck on another bill that is nowhere close to addressing the issues,” he added.

Legislators return to their seats from Tuesday, after a long recess that kept negotiations on a new economic stimulus plan for the country stalled.

“I am more optimistic today than I have been in a long time,” added the politician.

For his part, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, said Tuesday that his party planned to introduce a slashed coronavirus relief package, estimated to cost about $ 500 billion.
He also noted that they plan a vote “as soon as this week.”

“Working families should not suffer more than necessary because Democratic leaders believe that the pain of citizens can help their political fortunes,” McConnell said in a statement.

“Congress can, should and should do more to help. The Senate will vote and the American people will be watching, ”he said.

The move comes as lawmakers return to Washington for a shortened pre-election session, while hopes for another coronavirus relief bill are fading – or much more.

Both the White House and Republican leaders want to keep the amount earmarked for the new stimulus package close to $ 1 trillion.

Meadows urged both parties to work together and commit to the new stimulus package, noting that despite the differences, there is strong bipartisan support for improving federal aid as well as generating a new round of stimulus checks.

“There are more things we agree on than we disagree on,” said the White House chief of staff. “I think it is time that we put politics aside, approve this stimulus and actually allow it to reach the president’s desk,” he said.

“Right now, the obstacle is helping state and local governments,” he said. “The number presented by Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, is simply not supported by the facts,” said Meadows.
