A Republican lawmaker proposes an amendment to provide more generous aid checks in the amount of $ 10,000.

Recently, the $ 1.9 trillion aid package proposed by Biden has received multiple criticisms. Opponents argue that the money will go to issues not related to the pandemic or the economic needs of the population that is in need of federal assistance to get ahead.

That is why Paul Gosar, Republican Representative from Arizona, has tabled an amendment. His request asks to cut all those expenses that do not have to do with facing the coronavirus and instead deliver stimulus checks for $ 10,000.

“Only 9% of Pelosi’s $ 1.9 trillion” plan “is related to COVID-19,” wrote on Twitter, launching a direct criticism of the speaker of the House of Representatives.

“I offered an amendment that provides a $ 10k stimulus to Americans hardest hit by COVID-19 and lockdowns. The Democrats chose foreign aid, the transit of big technology and Pelosi’s political priorities over direct relief for Americans, ”Gosar explained.

“Americans need help with car, mortgage, rent, and daily necessities. The people, not the government, corporations, or billionaires, need this help. Consider $ 10,000 as a down payment, ”added the Republican.

Gosar’s amendment is an attempt to expose the ‘flaws’ of the new package, suggesting that many of the funds are not earmarked for the aid the country requires to revive its economy.

Still, Democrats rejected the proposal without explaining why, it reported. The opinion.

In the early hours of Saturday, the aid plan was approved by the Lower House. Now, debates on the issue will begin in the Senate this week with the hope of being able to approve it before March 14, the date on which the unemployment benefits approved by the previous administration expire.

Sending the $ 1,400 check could take time due to minimum wage increase dispute

The sending of the stimulus check of $ 1,400 could take time due to the dispute that some progressives would have to achieve the increase in the minimum wage.

Although President Joe Biden’s $ 1.9 trillion financial aid package was approved by the House of Representatives this Saturday, the minimum wage increase that had been requested was not included, which could cause some progressives to fight for it and, consequently, delay the delivery of the third check that so many Americans expect.

According to a report by Newsweek Posted on Saturday night, House progressives can cause Congress to delay passing the $ 1.9 trillion stimulus package, which includes the much-anticipated $ 1,400 aid checks, with the goal of maintaining the $ 15 minimum wage increase in lengthy bill.

Progressive lawmakers warned Democratic leaders on Friday that they could retain their vote in favor of the legislation if the Senate eliminates the pay increase, Newsweek reported.

His opposition could then return the package for renegotiation, which would further paralyze the approval of the bill, the aforementioned outlet reported.

“There are progressive Democrats who have that strength in the House. If we as a party decide to back out of our promise to raise the minimum wage, I think that is extraordinarily spurious and is something that as a party we could have a deeper conversation about how to fight for it, ”said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Ocasio-Cortez’s statement came after suggesting that progressives should pressure party leaders by withholding their votes in the same way that moderate Democrats have done in opposing the package.

In the early hours of Saturday, the House of Representatives approved Biden’s package largely along party lines in a vote of 219-212.

Two Democrats, Jared Golden of Maine and Kurt Schrader of Oregon, broke with the party to oppose legislation that Republicans in the lower house voted unanimously against, Newsweek detailed.

The economic package now goes to the Senate, where the increase in the minimum wage of $ 15 is expected to be modified. It will then be sent back to the House for another vote, Newsweek said.

The outlet recalled that the House bill includes raising the federal minimum wage by 2025, a measure strongly opposed by Republicans and some moderate Democrats. However, Senate MP Elizabeth MacDonough, a non-partisan interpreter of the House rules, recently said she did not meet the reconciliation requirements.

Senate Democrats had paved the way to use the budget process to pass legislation with a simple majority, as the House is evenly divided and Vice President Kamala Harris has the runoff vote. But with MacDonough’s ruling, party members are now spending the weekend exploring other avenues to pass the measure, Newsweek explained.
