Mitch McConnell made the announcement on social media tonight, and the details will be revealed. The massive Covid aid contract was signed after months of unsolvable Democrats.
It’s $ 900 billion, less than the $ 1.8 trillion or even $ 3 trillion that was on the table at one point. Of course, the people who are getting the least are your average everyday Americans hurt in their wallets.
That’s equivalent to a stimulus check of $ 600 for an individual. That’s not a huge incentive and comes from taxes on people who earn more than $ 75,000. So, how?
BREAKING: While Americans continue battling the coronavirus this holiday season, they won’t be alone.
Congress has just reached an agreement. We will hand over another rescue package as soon as possible. More help is on the way.
