Senate Republicans unveil a stimulus plan that implements $300 weekly federal unemployment benefits but leaves out direct payments

jzeballos@businessinsider.com (Joseph Zeballos-Roig)  1 hr ago

Senate Republicans rolled out a slimmed-down stimulus plan on Tuesday.

It includes a $300 federal unemployment benefit through December, $257 billion in small-business aid, and no additional assistance for cash-strapped states.

It leaves out a second round of $1,200 stimulus checks, which helped people make ends meet at the peak of the lockdown in April and May.


Democrats are likely to block the bill, which they attacked as "emaciated."

Senate Republicans unveiled a slimmed-down stimulus plan on Tuesday to implement a $300 federal supplement to state unemployment benefits. But it leaves out a second round of $1,200 direct payments, which helped people make ends meet at the height of lockdowns earlier this year.

I'm still waiting to get our darned tax refund!!  Mailed it before July deadline...rec'd receipt that they got it.  What the heck?  I looked on the IRS website -- refunds may be delayed -- do not contact their office for status.  I was hoping to use it to pay our property taxes. :shrug:
Romans 12:16-21
Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceable with all.  Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.  No, if your enemies are hungry, feed them, if they are thirsty, give them something to drink...Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Of course they will use this as a campaign issue; however most conservatives don't want to add even more to the trillions in debt. 

Many liberal morons will vote for the DEMS regardless -- they are clueless as to their socialist/marxist agenda.

I went to a neighborhood park that I hadn't been to in awhile today -- half a dozen or so Biden/Harris signs.  There are a couple on my street as well.  I was surprised, this used to be very heavy GOP territory.  Times are changing.
