Coronavirus Stimulus Vote Coming Wednesday – Here’s What You Need to Know

Fingers crossed.

Finally, after months and months of working and waiting and worrying, the American people may get some COVID relief yet.

Congress has been borderline negligent in their duty to protect the nation, as they bicker with the White House over tertiary details in the package.  Both sides have done plenty of floundering as well, with dramatic tweets and television appearances adding to the melee each and every day.

Now, thankfully, it appears as though there will be at least a vote on a relief package this week.

The bill, far more targeted than the White House’s $1.8 trillion relief measure, will expand federal unemployment benefits, replenish the Paycheck Protection Program, provide over $100 billion to schools and fund vaccine production and distribution as well as testing and tracing.

McConnell said that barring any obstruction from Democrats, the Senate would vote on the measure before turning to vote on Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

He’d need 60 votes to move the bill through the Senate. Democrats previously blocked a similar bill.

McConnell laid it all out in a tweet on Sunday:

The Democrats have blocked similar bills previously, so fingers crossed.
