House Passes Historic $2 Trillion Stimulus Package Despite
Last Minute Objections On Friday, the House of Representatives
approved the $2 trillion stimulus package
that passed the Senate earlier this week.
The package was pushed through despite
Thomas Massie requesting a roll call vote,
which infuriated members of both parties.
The Congress members had to return
to Washington in order to establish a quorum
and deny Massie's attempt.
The legislation stands as the largest emergency
aid package in U.S. history and will head to
President Trump's desk to be signed into law.
It will provide a financial boost to a
floundering economy with provisions
to aid businesses and workers alike.
Key provisions in the package include sending checks
to individuals, expansion of unemployment benefits
and allocating extensive funds
to hospitals and healthcare professionals.
