House PASSES $2,000 checks bill as dozens of Republicans get behind Donald Trump's demand for larger stimulus - forcing Mitch McConnell to go public on whether he will approve it too

President Trump's public schedule notes he is working 'tirelessly' for the American people; above he's seen on his golf course

  • The House of Representatives passed a bill Monday evening that would increase Americans' stimulus checks to $2,000 
  • President Donald Trump held a giant spending and COVID-19 stimulus bill in limbo demanding larger checks 
  • On Sunday night he agreed to sign the bill, but repeated his ask for the dollar amount to be increased 
  • All but two House Democrats voted in favor of the $2,000 checks and were joined by 44 Republicans 
  • Democrats fast-tracked the bill, thus needing two-thirds of the House to sign on to pass it 
  • With this success, the fate of the $2,000 checks is in Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's hands, and he's not openly supported it
  • The House of Representatives passed a bill Monday evening that would increase Americans' stimulus checks to $2,000 - something President Donald Trump demanded. 

    Democrats used a fast-track procedure to get the bill through, meaning two-thirds of the House needed to sign on. 

    All but two House Democrats who voted Monday were joined by 44 Republicans to get the bill through, with the final vote total being 275 yeas to 134 nays.

    Twenty-one lawmakers didn't vote. 

    Now the bill's fate is in the Senate's hands - where Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has not been openly supportive.

    On Sunday night when Trump signed the giant spending and COVID-19 stimulus bill - after flirting with vetoing it for several days - he repeated his demand for Americans to receive $2,000 checks, instead or the $600 payments outlined in the legislation. 

    'As President, I have told Congress that I want far less wasteful spending and more money going to the American people in the form of $2,000 checks per adult and $600 per child,' Trump said.

    Just two Democrats defected from their caucus, while 44 Republicans joined the effort to increase the stimulus checks to $2,000, up from the $600 that was originally in the COVID-19 relief legislation

There is always an agenda, if there is a yes there is a reason for it, that is a lot of money to repay, the money is supposed to assist people who are unemployed, those with jobs or have been working should not receive any checks, as a small business i got about $100k and will get more in this package, i pimp the government to chase wealth but its money i will gladly pay back i already more than double that amount in investment in less than a year, it aint nobodys fault many of you out there spending

Please Mr. Mconnel, if it's only you we waiting on, i plead with you, agree to the $2000 it will go right back into our economy. $2000 is not alot of money and you know it so image how much harder it would be with $600, its barely touching the surface. Also id like to add that its no telling when covid will be gone they are already articles saying it will take away 2021 from us, and their are talks about some new strains in afrikka, and that more virus's in general are on the way, so does that mean more stimilus's are on the way or is the world ending, which one. I'm leaning towards the world is ending.
