What Bernie Sanders Said About A New Stimulus Package

Published

on

Bernie Sanders called on the Senate to pass a “real stimulus package” providing $2,000 a month to working class households and $600 per week for the unemployed as COVID-19 cases continued to rise across the U.S.

The Vermont senator said the next stimulus package would also have to offer “Medicare to all” as Americans supposedly faced “economic devastation” in the face of a growing wave of COVID-19 infections.

“The pandemic is surging, and tens of millions of Americans are facing economic devastation,” Sanders tweeted on Thursday night. “The Senate needs to pass a real stimulus package NOW that provides $2,000 a month to the working class, $600 a week to the unemployed and expands Medicare to all.”

The independent senator previously called the Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell “pathetic” as both GOP and Democratic lawmakers failed to strike a deal on another stimulus package, long after the first round of individual checks were sent.
