The Senate passed a $2 Trillion relief bill to assist the healthcare system fight the Coronavirus and deliver relief to businesses suffering during the crisis.
The bill will give $500 billion in direct payments to the American people, bolster unemployment insurance with a surge of $250 billion, provide $500 billion in loans to big businesses, and create a $350 billion loan program for small businesses.
It also funnels $130 billion into the stretched-thin health-care system to get more resources and equipment to those directly fighting the disease.
The bill now must get through Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats who have so far been eager to block any bill that comes out of the Senate in order to hurt President Trump politically.
Will Democrats finally do what’s best for America and put partisan politics aside?
House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer, Maryland Democrat, announced during the vote that his chamber will take up the package via a voice vote at 9 a.m. Friday.
