  • A group of 50 members of the House of Representatives presented an alternative stimulus package of almost 2 trillion dollars for the coronavirus
  • The group is made up of Democrats and Republicans
  • The proposed plan would include undocumented couples and their American children

A bipartisan group of 50 members of the House of Representatives known as the Caucus of Problem Solvers, presented an alternative stimulus package against the economic crisis of the coronavirus of approximately $ 1.5 trillion, according to AXIOS.

This third plan from the group of 25 Democrats and 25 Republicans is a desperate attempt to force party leaders to renegotiate another aid package before the presidential election in November.

The plan contains many elements of the COVID-19 rescue packages devised by both the Democrats in the House of Representatives and the Republicans who control the Senate, including aid to schools.

It also includes funding for state and local governments and the renewal of expired unemployment benefits related to COVID-19 and direct assistance to families, including undocumented couples and their American children, according to The Associated Press.

“Having seen no progress on a new COVID-19 relief package in four months, and in recognition of the growing suffering of Americans, the Problem Solvers Caucus has developed a comprehensive, bipartisan framework to meet the nation’s needs for the next 6-12 months ”indicated the group.

“That can be approved by both houses of Congress and enacted by the president,” the caucus said in a release.

The proposal titled “March to Common Ground” and led by Democratic Rep. Josh Gottheimer and Republican Tom Reed contemplates:

$ 100 Billion for COVID-19 Testing and Health Care
$ 316 billion in direct payments to individuals and families
$ 120 billion in improved unemployment benefits
$ 290 billion for small businesses
$ 145 billion for schools and child care
$ 500 billion in state and local aid
$ 400 billion for election security $ 52 billion to support broadband expansion, the agricultural industry, the US Postal Service, and the census

“Our framework reflects months of bipartisan consensus building on the actions the federal government can take to help working families and local communities across the country as they navigate the impacts of COVID-19,” Reed said.

For his part, Gottheimer noted that “what unites us, 25 Democrats and 25 Republicans, is our shared goal of finding a pragmatic solution, a bipartisan path forward, to help bring negotiators back to the table.”

Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday that the House will remain in session until lawmakers deliver another round of COVID-19 relief, a move that came as Democrats from undecided districts signaled their discontent with a showdown that could force them to confront voters without delivering more aid.

“We are committed to staying here until we have an agreement, an agreement that meets the needs of the American people,” Pelosi said on CNBC.

The Caucus plan amount is significantly less than the $ 2.2 trillion figure cited by Pelosi, but it is also well above a Senate Republican plan of approximately $ 650 billion that failed last week due to Democratic opposition.

Many people on Capitol Hill remain skeptical about the possibility of a deal between the White House and the Democrats before the election.

“I have a feeling that time is running out,” said Senate Republican Leader John Thune of South Dakota. “I don’t see any intention or desire on the part of the Democratic leadership at this time, regardless of what its members say, to cooperate and work together on a solution. I think they feel they have the problem and want to try it in November. “

The Cuacus group hopes the package will illustrate the kinds of compromises that top Democrats and the administration would have to make in order for a measure to pass and become law.

“I hope our leadership is paying attention. I hope our leadership is taking a hard look at what we are doing, “said Rep. Kurt Schrader, D-Ore. “We consider these to be the basic principles of any package that comes out of the House and Senate and is signed by the President of the United States.”

House Democrat No. 2 Steny Hoyer of Maryland said the moderates had developed “useful ideas, important ideas,” but said the proposal did not do enough to address current needs to help the economy. to recover from the COVID-19 crisis.
