The United States Speaker, Nancy Pelosi has said that Congress will hold a recorded vote on stand-alone bill to increase economic impact payments to $2,000, adding that voting against it, is to deny the financial hardship that American families face and to deny them the relief they needed.

In a statement released recently, over the House Republicans blocking Democrats’ unanimous consent request to increase economic impact payments to $2000 as President, Donald Trump earlier called for.

According to her, “On Christmas Eve, House Republicans cruelly deprived the American people of the $2,000 that the President agreed to support.  If the President is serious about the $2,000 direct payments, he must call on House Republicans to end their obstruction.

Pelosi added that House and Senate Democrats have repeatedly fought for bigger checks for the American people, while House and Senate Republicans have repeatedly rejected.

“First, during our negotiations when they said that they would not go above $600 and now, with this act of callousness on the Floor”, she said.

She vowed to hold a recorded vote on stand-alone bill to increase economic impact payments to $2,000. “To vote against this bill is to deny the financial hardship that families face and to deny them the relief they need.

“Hopefully by then the President Trump will have already signed the bipartisan and bicameral legislation to keep government open and to deliver coronavirus relief”, she said.
