BREAKING: COVID Stimulus Bill Finally Passed

(WatchDogNews.org) – COVID-19 is causing a lot of damage to the economy. American workers and small businesses are being hit especially hard. But, they may finally get the relief they’ve been looking for.

On Friday afternoon, the House voted to pass a $2 trillion stimulus package. The vote came after a week of negotiations on Capitol Hill between both chambers of Congress and the White House.

Earlier in the day, it looked as if the bill might be held up by a procedural motion from Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY). The lawmaker was threatening to force a full roll call. This caused enough uncertainty to force lawmakers to travel back to DC to ensure that the bill was passed as soon as possible.

President Donald Trump was furious when he heard about the Republican’s antics.

House leadership was able to stop Massie from interfering and the bill passed. It immediately headed onto the president’s desk for his signature, which he provided to sign the bill into law on the same day. Soon, the American people will finally get the help they need.
