Aid Checks Could Be Getting To Americans By Now, According To Mnuchin | Univision News Elections in the US 2020


#Senate #Republican #Leader #Mitch #McConnell objected to a #Democratic request for the #Senate to unanimously adopt legislation passed yesterday by the #Democratic-majority #House of #Representatives to increase stimulus checks from $ 600 to $ 2,000.

#Republican #McConnell also objected to a request from the independent senator #Bernie #Sanders for the #Senate to address the issue of checks after voting on #Wednesday to annul the presidential veto on the military budget.

#Sanders responded by objecting to the vote on the presidential veto happening on #Wednesday.

The #Republican leader thus rejects a request that #President #Trump made to increase aid checks, to which #Democrats immediately signed after months of unsuccessful negotiations in #Congress.

#This objection from #McConnell is likely to prolong proceedings in a contested #Congress: #Most #Democrats are pushing to raise this one-time payment, while some #Republican senators have voiced their support for this $ 2,000 stimulus check.

#McConnell hinted that the approval of that higher amount in checks for people affected by the pandemic could be linked to other issues that #Trump also mentioned, such as tighter restrictions on large technology companies and an investigation into #November elections.

“The #Senate will begin a process to address these … priorities,” #McConnell said.
