Republicans, Democrats Debate Whether Next Relief Bill Should Be $1 Trillion or $2 Trillion
And whether it should include all sorts of other things.
Is this the debate we should be having?
Senate Republicans’ $1 trillion proposal includes calls for another round of $1,200 stimulus checks, $150 billion in aid to state and local governments, a $200 weekly unemployment benefit, as well as a few pet defense projects.
Democrats’ $3 trillion proposal would instead provide a $600 unemployment bonus, plus close to $1 trillion in aid to state and local governments.
