A bipartisan group of Senator is now reportedly beginning to throw cold water on President Biden’s proposed 1.9 trillion dollar stimulus bill.

In addition to the outrageously high amount being asked for, many Senators also balked at the amount of money being given to high income Americans who have no need for it. In particular many were concerned about the proposed $1400 dollar stimulus check Biden has proposed be sent to all Americans.

As Fox Business reports:

Biden is pushing for a massive plan that includes $20 billion to accelerate vaccine distribution, a $15-an-hour minimum wage increase, an extension of supplemental unemployment benefits through the end of September, a one-time $1,400 stimulus check, a temporary expansion of the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit and $350 billion in new funding for state and local governments.

While the lawmakers largely agreed the top priority should be producing and distributing vaccines, according to a source with knowledge of the matter, some pushed back against the $1,400 stimulus payments and pressed the White House to make them more targeted to individuals in greater need.

That was also my question. Other countries that hate us do not deserve our tax money.

No other country deserve our money anyway and we shouldn’t be funding abortion and planned parenthood. Another reason why I say Obiden isn’t a christian . No christian would ever support it.

Pretty sure joe has promised billions of our tax dollars to help out Central America so now we won’t only be paying for illegals in America but we will be building their countries for them too.All that money that could have and should have been given back to the taxpayers to whom it belongs.

Typical leftist logic. Weaponize Wuhan to destroy the economy, then charge taxpayers $trillions to restore it.
