Democrats have overcome an important hurdle in Covid-19 relief: The House of Representatives passed its version of the $1.9 trillion stimulus package, sending it off to the Senate.
The bill passed around 2 am Saturday, in a 219-212 vote, with every Republican voting no. Democratic Reps. Jared Golden of Maine and Kurt Schrader of Oregon also opposed the bill.
The bill includes some big-ticket items that would deliver important relief to businesses, workers, and the broader economy. It includes $1,400 stimulus checks for those making up to $75,000 a year, $400 expanded weekly unemployment insurance benefits through August 29, and billions of dollars for designates such as schools, state and local governments, and restaurants. It also increases Affordable Care Act subsidies for low- and middle-income Americans and expands both the child tax credit and the earned income tax credit.
