Help Is Really On The Way Again
On Saturday the Senate passed President Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill. The bill now needs to be sent back to Congress and is scheduled for a vote tomorrow to approve the changes made in the Senate. That vote is expected to succeed on a party line with a Democratic majority.
There are more than 600 pages in the relief bill. After being signed by the president, people could start seeing the $1,400 stimulus payments hit their bank account within days after he signs the bill.
This time individuals earning less than $75,000 and couples earning less than 150,000 would receive the full $1,400 plus an additional $1,400 per dependent. This bill does not just provide direct payments to Americans, it also extends jobless benefits and provides a huge financial infusion to states and local governments as well as to schools to help them reopen. It also provides funding for priorities like coronavirus testing and vaccine distribution.
The president told the nation that, “Help is on the way.” That is very true. We are the only country in the world that can really create this huge stimulus package to help our own people.
Time is very critical. We really need to overcome all these tragic times and look for better days ahead.
