House Democrats Release New $2.2 Trillion U.S. Stimulus Proposal
(Bloomberg) -- House Democrats released a $2.2 trillion proposal to extend support to the U.S. economy in face of the continuing damage from the coronavirus pandemic.
The plan follows through on discussions last week to prompt a last-ditch attempt at negotiations with the White House to break an impasse on Covid-19 relief that’s lasted since early August.
The White House and congressional Republicans have previously rejected that level of stimulus.
