Well the moment a lot of people have been waiting for happened early Saturday morning! The House voted to pass President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion Covid-19 relief package which has some money a lot of people need right now attached including $1,400 direct payments. This newly released passed bill also includes a $400 a week federal unemployment bonus, an allowance of up to $3,600 per child and billions of dollars to distribute the corona virus vaccines and to assist schools and local governments. President Joe Biden who has been pushing for this bill to get passed pretty fast thanked the House and urged the Senate to move quickly to pass the bill and send it to his desk so hopefully the senate can make that happen we shall see.
“We have no time to waste,” Biden said. “The people of this country have suffered far too much for too long. We need to relieve that suffering, and the American Rescue Plan does just that.”
