The passage comes days after the meeting Biden had on Monday with ten Republican senators who attempted to negotiate another coronavirus relief deal. They specifically pitched their $618 billion covid relief package.
The $1.9 trillion measure will now go to the Democrat-led House, where it is expected to pass. Notably, Biden’s measure includes $1,400 stimulus checks — $600 short of the $2,000 stimulus checks promised and demanded by other progressives. Biden’s team maintains that they are keeping their promise, as the $1,400 checks equal the promised $2,000 when combined with the $600 provided in the $2.3 trillion government spending and coronavirus relief measure former President Trump signed in December.
