Bernie Sanders calls Mitch McConell on Twitter

Bernie Sanders isn’t here about Mitch McConell, and he’s denying the $ 2,000 stimulus check.

The 79-year-old took to Twitter to bring him together. Bernie tweeted, “All of a sudden, Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans are concerned that someone in America might get a check for $ 2,000 who doesn’t need it.”

He went on: “Funny. They had no problem giving Charles Koch and his family a tax break of $ 1.4 billion with a net worth of $ 113 billion. What hypocrisy! “

He also tweeted yesterday that Mitch McConell “has the right to vote against this legislation. But he shouldn’t have the right to block a vote. “

As you know, the House voted to approve the $ 2,000 stimulus checks, but the GOP-led Senate refused.

On Monday, the house voted to increase stimulus checks from $ 600 to $ 2,000.

While some Republicans opposed spending more, others joined in and voted for the bill.

“Republicans have a choice: vote for this legislation or vote to reject the American people,” said House spokeswoman Nancy.

The $ 600 deal was a compromise with Republicans over the major year-end relief bill, which included $ 900 billion in COVID relief and aid $ 1.4 trillion to fund the government Agencies.

“The bill will provide long-awaited cash for businesses and individuals and prevent a federal government shutdown that would otherwise have begun Tuesday amid the public health crisis,” said The Associated Press.

According to CBS News, while Trump signed the bill at the 11th hour, unemployment benefits had only expired 18 hours earlier.

An estimated 12 million Americans lost their unemployment benefits after two key government programs approved by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) expired on December 26 study was published last week by The Century Foundation, a progressive think tank. “

As you know, some people have already started receiving the $ 600 checks. Do you have yours, Roomie?
