I'm 100% in favor of this, but I wouldn't start spending too much time planning what you will be spending this money on anytime soon. I think the main reason Mitch McConnell didn't bring this up for a vote in the prior rounds of stimulus negotiations is because he didn't have the votes in his conference to make it happen. I have no doubt he would have if 8-10 Republicans were in favor of it.
However, it could still happen if President-elect Biden and Senate Democrats are able to move this package through Congress using reconciliation. I won't bore anyone with the details, but reconciliation allows *certain* bills that have to do with "spending, revenue, and the federal debt limit" to be passed with a simple majority in the Senate. But, and this is a pretty big but, the Senate can only pass one bill that has to do with each (spending, revenue, debt limit) each year.
It's certainly not unheard of considering that's how Obamacare and Trump's tax cuts were passed, to name two recent uses.
