$484B Aid Package Passes House

$484B Aid Package Passes House

(RightWing.org) – After two weeks of partisan gridlock that was ultimately broken by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, the $484 billion interim stimulus bill finally passed through the House on Thursday, April 23. The final vote was 388 for the bill, which easily surpassed the two-thirds majority needed. President Trump signed the bill earlier today.

The tweet below explains how the new stimulus bill will be applied.

The $250 billion for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) is, and always has been, the primary focus of the bill until Democrats added on the rest.

There were a handful of votes against the bill. One of them is someone you might be familiar with by now: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

She was the lone Democrat who voted against the bill. Even in a time of crisis, she can’t see eye-to-eye with her Democrat colleagues who already used it as a way to get even more federal funding. AOC opposed the bill because she wants MORE government money, saying “It is insulting to think we can pass such a small amount of money.” She must think that money can simply appear out of thin air.
