‘Democrats Are Prepared’ to Again Trump’s $2,000 Stimulus by ‘Unanimous Consent’

The latest COVID-19 stimulus package, passed by Congress this week, would send Americans $ 600 by the end of the year, but President Donald J. Trump has threatened to veto the bill if they up for signature arrives at his desk.

“I’m asking Congress to amend this bill and raise the ridiculously low $ 600 to $ 2,000 or $ 4,000 for a couple,” Trump said in a video posted on Twitter Tuesday night.

“It’s a joke,” Chant’e Catt, an off-campus housing coordinator at Humboldt State University in Northern California, told the New York Times. “It’s a slap in the face and it’s really disrespectful to someone who’s lost their job.”

“We’re constantly saving corporations and corporations,” said 22-year-old David Caron from Boston, Massachusetts, on Saturday. “When it comes to helping the individual, we have to hang dry.”

House spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi disagreed. She said she was ready for the immediate $ 2,000 incentive.

Republicans repeatedly refused to say what amount the president wanted for direct controls, “Pelosi tweeted. “Finally the president has approved $ 2,000 – the Democrats stand ready to unanimously speak up this week. Let’s do this!”

A senior Democratic adviser told CNBC that House Democrats will attempt to pass a standalone bill for $ 2,000 in direct payments Thursday, though it’s unclear whether that would happen through a Republican-led Senate or even get the unanimous approval required in the House is.

Let’s do that. @RashidaTlaib and I have already written the COVID amendment request for $ 2,000 checks together.

I am glad to see that the President is ready to support our legislation.

We can pass $ 2,000 checks this week if the Senate GOP agrees to step down. https://t.co/GprwrUPali pic.twitter.com/nFFs1ExqCK

If Clark Griswold was hoping his stimulus check would cover the down payment for a new pool, he’s deeply mistaken. # ChristmasVacation #Stimulus pic.twitter.com/Tb9l0tnepv
