Happy Hump Day birdies…
en. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has vowed to push for more COVID-19 relief in January, including a third round of stimulus checks, after insisting the latest agreement does “not go anywhere near far enough.”
The fresh package includes $600 direct payments, but Sanders had pushed for another round of $1,200 checks.
“While including these payments ultimately improved this bill, given the enormous economic desperation that so many working families across this country are now experiencing, there is no question but that this legislation did not go far enough,” he said in a statement.
“When President-elect Biden assumes office next month and when the Senate comes back into session in January, I will immediately begin fighting for another relief bill to help America’s working families—including another round of direct payments and more relief for the unemployed, the hungry, the uninsured and those who owe back rent and are behind on mortgage payments.”
