Trillion-dollar Relief for Americans
Posted on: Tue 9 Mar 2021
The US Senate has passed a $1.9 trillion USD stimulus bill, which will provide a one-time check of $1,400 dollars for COVID 19 relief.
Federal unemployment benefits, funding for vaccine distribution and COVID-19 testing, and subsidizing states, local governments, schools, and small businesses will also be expanded.
Breakfast’s Tom Mann speaks to US correspondent Taylor Kaplan to discuss the issues with the stimulus bill that have already been raised, and how President Biden is set to pass a new piece of legislation protecting voter rights.
