Its a little odd seeing Pelosi and Trump agree on something but it happened. Congress passed another stimulus package, this one set to send $600 direct payments to most people in the country. And Trump called it a 'disgrace', saying the bill should be amended from $600 checks to $2000 checks before he signs it into law.
He didn't threaten to veto the bill. And from my understanding he can't as it passed with enough votes to make it veto-proof. But he does have Democrat support, perhaps enough to make this happen, at least in the House.
Pelosi came out in agreement, responding to Trump's tweet with this:
Republicans repeatedly refused to say what amount the President wanted for direct checks. At last, the President has agreed to $2,000 — Democrats are ready to bring this to the Floor this week by unanimous consent. Let’s do it!
So... what are the chances of an 11th hour change to the stimulus bill to up checks to $2k? Please say more than 0..
