House Passes Bill Providing $2,000 Stimulus Checks

The House voted overwhelmingly Monday to roughly triple pandemic-related stimulus checks — but it may amount to more of a political maneuver than an effort to ultimately deliver additional relief. The 275-134 vote came with a few dozen Republicans joining nearly all Democrats to back the increase, which was first demanded by President Donald Trump last week as he threatened to kill a massive aid package.

This move will certainly put Mitch McConnell in a squeeze as a refusal to take it to the floor for a vote could hurt the GOP’s chances of winning those all-important Senate seats in Georgia.
