NAMBÉ – U.S. House Assistant Speaker Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) issued the following statement after House Democrats passed legislation to increase direct payments to U.S. taxpayers from $600 to $2,000.

The bill now advances to the Republican-controlled Senate. On Christmas Eve, House Republicans blocked a unanimous consent request to pass $2,000 economic impact payments, which President Trump has expressed support for.

“For months, my Democratic colleagues and I have been advocating for bigger direct payments to Americans. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell has callously resisted, denying struggling families a desperately needed lifeline during an unprecedented national emergency,” Luján said.

“Since President Trump expressed his support for $2,000 checks last week, Democrats have acted twice to pass this measure. This is Congress’ last chance to provide robust relief to the American people before the end of the year, and it’s time for Senate Republicans to allow a vote and pass this bill.”

  1. Now, we see, Trumps cry for raising the stimulus was a ruse, to get his “election investigation”.

    And the people got fooled 4,000 times in a row and then fell for it again. This is the story of the Trump supporters.

  2. The best relief you can give the American public is to let them choose how to deal with the Pandemic instead of instituting draconian rules that strangle small businesses to death.
