Republicans in the House have snubbed their noses at President Donald Trump and have said they will rebuff his demand for a $2,000 stimulus checks.
During a conference call, House GOP Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy told his fellow Republican representatives on Wednesday that the unanimous consent that Speaker Nancy Pelosi will call for to get Americans the $2,000 checks will not go through.
He said that the Speaker’s plan was a “stunt” and that Republicans will work on their own plan for stimulus.
McCarthy said on the call that he spoke to President Trump directly and that the president has not decided to definitely veto the current bill that includes $600 stimulus checks.
Pelosi dropped the hammer on President Trump and Republicans in a letter to her fellow Democrats, saying that the president should get Republicans to back the $2,000 stimulus checks.
“Just when you think you’ve seen it all,” Pelosi said, “the President said that he would possibly veto the bicameral agreement negotiated between Republicans and Democrats.”
