One day after President Donald Trump signed a $900 billion stimulus bill into law, the House of Representatives voted to increase direct payments to most Americans from $600 to $2,000 per person.
The bill had wide Democratic support, but failed to capture a majority of Republicans. The bill passed with just over two-thirds of the House voting in approval.
The legislation now goes to the US Senate, where its future is in question. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who largely controls what legislation gets to the floor, has been mum on whether he’ll allow the CASH Act to get a vote.
Should the U.S. Senate vote to increase stimulus checks to $2,000? Voting for this survey has closed, but stay tuned for today's survey question.
