Rubio invokes unity in request for Biden to call for individual $2K checks
By Zack Budryk - 01/13/21 09:42 AM EST

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) urged President-elect Joe Biden to appeal to national unity by pushing for $2,000 direct payments, which Biden is on record as supporting.

"It would send a powerful message to the American people if, on the first day of your presidency, you called on the House and Senate to send you legislation to increase the direct economic impact payments to Americans struggling due to the pandemic from $600 to $2,000," Rubio wrote in the letter, obtained by Axios.

Rubio cited last Wednesday’s deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol, which he called “one of the darkest days in our history,” and wrote that in the wake of the riot Americans are in search of “hope that political leaders in Washington can begin taking steps to heal our deeply divided nation.”


Biden previously backed President Trump’s call in December to send out the $2,000 direct payments.
