BREAKING: Congress Comes To Conclusion In Controversial Coronavirus Relief Package Deal Following Months Of Negotiations

Congress finally agreed on a $900 billion coronavirus relief package, according to The Daily Caller.

“At long last, we have the bipartisan breakthrough the country has needed,” Senate Majority Leader McConnell said.

“I hope we can do this as promptly as possible.”

The bill includes $600 relief checks for most Americans.

Congress also hopes to tie a $1.4 trillion bill that funds the government through September 2021.

“The great news is that Congress is not going to be the Grinch,” said Virginia Democratic Sen. Mark Warner.

We’re going to get this package done.”

“It should have happened a long time ago… but it’s going to get done before Christmas,” he said.

The bill also includes weekly $300 unemployment checks, over $300 billion in relief for small businesses, and substantial sums of money for schools, hospitals, and vaccine distribution networks.

From The Daily Caller:

Congress also hopes to tie a $1.4 trillion bill that funds the government through September 2021 to the relief package after passing two stopgap bills in the past nine days. The House is expected to pass a one-day stopgap bill to fund the government through Monday and then consider a week-long stopgap to give the Senate more time to pass the relief package before they depart for the holidays.

Following the compromise, senators expressed a sense of relief that a deal was reached before the holidays and a possible government shutdown.

Two major sticking points that were ultimately omitted from the bill were liability shields for larger businesses and aid for state and local governments. Democrats objected over liability shields while Republicans said that state and local aid amounted to a “Blue State bailout,” leading both to be left out of the final bill.
