The new proposal would provide 600 dollars to citizens, 1200 to each couple and would provide other initiatives to help the economy
The Republican government of President Donald Trump resumed negotiations for a COVID-19 assistance package and presented to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, a proposal that would make direct payments of $ 600 to most of the Americans and 1200 couples.
The Republican leader in the House of Representatives, Kevin McCarthy, told the AP agency that the proposal includes a direct payment of $ 600 to individuals and 1,200 to couples. The proposal, greater than a $ 908 billion submitted last week, also includes “money for state and local governments and robust liability protections for businesses, schools and universities” affected by the pandemic. The plan was delivered to Pelosi on Tuesday, but they also reviewed it with President Donald Trump, and the Republican Majority Leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell.
Democrats and Republicans in Congress have not been able to agree for months on a bill to succeed the initial rescue package proposed in the so-called CARES Act – of $ 2.2 billion – approved earlier this year to support the hit US economy. That bill includes small business loans and grants, payments of $ 1,200 to all American citizens and an expansion of the unemployment safety net. This Republican proposal is much more important, when the end of the month approaches and many unemployed will stop receiving aid framed in the CARES Act.
The reduction in the aid from $ 1,200 to $ 600, has been the result of the Democratic Party and Nancy Pelosi’s actions. We must all make ourselves heard to get approved the aid originally promoted by the Republican Party.
