Shelving his objections, President Donald 王牌 has signed a $2 trillion-plus COVID-19和年度联邦支出计划 即使数次国会在罕见的休会期摊牌后仍继续就白宫问题与白宫对抗时,也为数百万美国人提供了救济。

王牌 appears to have accomplished little, if anything, from the days of drama over his refusal to accept the sweeping bipartisan deal. While the president'要求更大的$ 2,000  大流行救济  checks seem destined to fail, his push served up a political opportunity for Democrats, who support the larger stipends and are forcing 王牌'的共和党盟友陷入困境。

周一,由民主党领导的众议院将投票通过将600美元的缴款额提高至2,000美元,向参议院发送新福彩快三开奖结果福建。在那里,共和党人占多数,但反对增加开支,并有可能击败这项努力。

众议院牧师为议员们祈祷。帕特里克·康罗伊(Rev. Patrick Conroy)牧师说:“他们带着巨大的重量回到国会大厦,对此,一个国家表示感谢。”

摊牌提供的符号多于实质,'s not expected to alter the massive package that 王牌 reluctantly signed into law late Sunday in Florida, where he is spending the holidays. The $900 billion in COVID aid and 1.4万亿美元为政府提供资金  机构将向企业和个人提供长期寻求的现金,并避免联邦政府因公共卫生危机而本周二开始关闭。

除了直接向大多数美国人提供600美元的支票外,该福彩快三开奖结果福建的COVID部分还恢复了每周大流行的失业救济金的提高(这次是300美元,直到3月14日),以及颇受欢迎的“工资支票保护计划”,旨在向企业提供赠款以使工人保持工资总额。它扩展了迁离保护,增加了新的租金援助基金。

COVID软件包是华盛顿同类公司中规模最大的,它在早期的努力中得到了借鉴和扩展。它提供数十亿美元用于疫苗的购买和分发,病毒接触者追踪,公共卫生部门,学校,大学,农民,食品储藏室计划以及其他在大流行中面临困难的机构和团体。

年收入不超过$ 75,000的美国人将有资格获得直接$ 600的付款,这些款项将在较高的收入水平逐步淘汰,'每个受抚养子女额外支付$ 600。

同时,该福彩快三开奖结果福建的政府资助部分使全国范围的联邦机构保持运转,直到9月30日为止。

Together with votes Monday and Tuesday to override 王牌’s veto of a sweeping defense bill, the attempt to send much higher pandemic-era checks to people is perhaps the last standoff of the president’s final days in office as he imposes fresh demands and disputes the results of the presidential election. The new Congress is set to be sworn in Sunday.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., seized 上 the divide between the president and his party, urging 王牌 to put pressure 上 his Senate GOP allies to pass the bill.

佩洛西在推特上说:“总统必须立即呼吁国会共和党人停止阻挠,并与他和民主党一起支持我们的独立立法,将直接支付支票增加到2,000美元。”

王牌's sudden decision to sign the bill came as he faced escalating criticism from lawmakers 上 all sides over his eleventh-hour demands. The bipartisan bill negotiated by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin had already passed the House and Senate by wide margins. Lawmakers had thought they had 王牌'经过与他的政府谈判数月后的祝福。

会长'在圣诞节前夕,他在推特上发表了一段热烈的录像,公开挑衅性地拒绝采取行动,引发了混乱,数百万人失业的失业以及政府在大流行中关闭的威胁。这是他自己造成的另一场危机,当他最终将该福彩快三开奖结果福建签署为法律时,解决了这一危机。

In his statement about the signing, 王牌 repeated his frustrations with the COVID-19 relief bill for providing 上 ly $600 checks to most Americans and complained about what he considered unnecessary spending, particularly 上 foreign aid — much of it proposed by his own budget.

尽管总统坚持要向国会发送“红线版本”,其中包括他想删除的支出项目,但这些只是向国会的建议。签署的福彩快三开奖结果福建不一定会更改。

目前,主管部门只能开始发送600美元的付款。

拨款委员会主席纽约的众议员尼塔·洛维(Nita Lowey)说,在众议院占多数的民主党人“将拒绝总统提出的任何废除”。

But 王牌 nonetheless continued to try to spin his foot-dragging as a win, telling allies he’d won concessions by forcing the removal of what he dubbed “Christmas trees” from the spending bill. A day after the signing, he was back at the golf course in Florida, where he is expected to move after President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in 上 January 20.

阿拉巴马州共和党众议员Mo Brooks, a conservative who supported 王牌'对选举结果的巨大挑战, counted himself Monday among the opponents of a more generous relief package and 王牌'要求更高的付款额。

“这是我们没有的钱,我们必须借钱才能得到,我们无力偿还,"他说:“狐狸和朋友们。"

但是,纽约的共和党众议员Elise Stefanik说,她愿意接受2,000美元的支票。 “许多美国人迫切需要救济,"她在节目中说。

Altogether, Republicans and Democrats alike swiftly welcomed 王牌'决定将该福彩快三开奖结果福建签署为法律。

参议院多数党领袖米奇·麦康奈尔(R-Ky)说:“妥协福彩快三开奖结果福建并不完美,但它将为全国各地急需帮助的肯塔克人和美国人带来巨大好处,他们现在需要帮助。” “我感谢总统将这项救济签署为法律。"

Others slammed 王牌's delay in turning the bill into law. In a tweet, Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., accused 王牌 of having “played Russian roulette with American lives. A familiar and comfortable place for him.”

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said he would offer 王牌’s proposal for $2,000 checks for a vote in Senate — putting Republicans 上 the spot.

“众议院将通过一项福彩快三开奖结果福建,向美国人提供2,000美元的支票,"舒默发了推文。 “那么我将通过参议院通过。”他说,没有民主党人会反对。"参议院共和党人吗?”

民主党人承诺,一旦拜登就职,民主党将提供更多援助,但共和党人发出了观望态度。

In the face of growing economic hardship, spreading disease and a looming shutdown, lawmakers spent Sunday urging 王牌 to sign the legislation immediately, then have Congress follow up with additional aid.

就目前而言,该包装包含多种措施,其中包括史密森尼博物馆新的妇女历史博物馆和美国国家拉丁裔国家博物馆以及位于国家广场附近的新史密森尼博物馆的绿灯。
