Biden is true. Individuals need stimulus checks, not GOP assist for the invoice.
The Biden stimulus continues to be popular with Americans, who told a Monmouth University poll that they were unwilling to trade minor stimulus checks for GOP votes.
According to the Monmouth University survey:
The bill passed by parliament did not attract Republican votes. It will almost certainly experience the same fate in the Senate without substantial changes. Looking at the plan as a whole, the public is equally divided on whether to cut the $ 1.9 trillion amount to get bipartisan support (48%) or keep the full plan intact, even if he is only supported by senators in one party (45%).
However, the preference for bipartisanism diminishes when the public is asked about the same compromise on direct stimulus testing. The willingness to cut this component of the bill in the name of non-partisanship is only 25%. Two in three Americans (68%) say the full $ 1,400 should be kept, even if it means the bill will only be passed with the support of one party. Even most Republicans (53%), along with Independents (65%) and Democrats (85%), say the $ 1,400 payments should be left untouched.
The mainstream press has hung up what Democrats should give Republicans to get their support for the bill. The corporate media ignores the fact that there is nothing Democrats can give to Senate Republicans to get their votes.
The whole plan of Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republican caucus is not to vote for the bill and get the Democrats to own it, which is a strange and doomed strategy for opposing popular legislation.
President Biden was right. People don’t want Democrats to compromise on the business cycle. If it were up to the Republicans, the fighting people would get no incentive.
It doesn’t matter if Republicans vote for the bill in Congress, the Biden incentive is already a bipartisan success for the American people.
