The congressmen analyze the options they have on a new direct stimulus check to Americans, which could be $ 600 to $ 1,200, according to the plans on the table.
Between this Thursday and tomorrow, the decision must be made considering the legislative times that expire on December 18.
The $ 600- $ 700 plan was proposed by the president’s government Donald trump, but there is also the mirror project of the CARES Act $ 1,200 that some senators, like Bernie sanders (Vermont), they are pushing.
The economic proposal under discussion is the bipartisan one of $ 900,000 million, which is supported by the Democratic leaders Nancy pelosi (California), Speaker of the House of Representatives, and Charles schumer (New York), leader in the Senate.
The Republican leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell (Kentucky), has decided to consider a new shipment of aid to families, due to the electoral contest in Georgia, which could cause its bench to lose two positions and yield the majority to the Democrats.
The larger aid plan would also include $ 500 in aid for each child. The $ 600 dollar one would give $ 100 per child.
The decision of which families could receive direct aid funds has not yet been made, but it is intended to be a priority for people with incomes no greater than $ 75,000 per person annually.
The couples would receive double the funds, which could be between $ 1,200 and $ 2,400 depending on the plan that is endorsed in Congress.
