KEY POINTS

Twenty-one Senate Democrats led by Ron Wyden are pushing President Joe Biden to include recurring direct payments and an extension of jobless benefits in his economic recovery plan.

They want the aid tied to economic conditions so it does not lapse too early.

Biden plans to unveil his infrastructure and recovery proposal Wednesday.


More Senate Democrats are pressuring President Joe Biden to extend rescue measures as the U.S. recovers from a coronavirus-fueled economic drubbing.

Twenty-one members of the Senate Democratic caucus wrote to the president Tuesday urging him to include recurring direct payments and enhanced jobless benefits as part of his recovery plan.

The senators, led by Finance Committee Chair Ron Wyden of Oregon, aim to tie the aid to economic conditions so relief does not lapse too early.

“This crisis is far from over, and families deserve certainty that they can put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads,” the senators wrote. “Families should not be at the mercy of constantly-shifting legislative timelines and ad hoc solutions.”

1. republican't senators think the money is theirs.

I can't see them "giving" it to the people.

Need to hope for all Democrats and a VP tiebreaker.

5. 30 million people have not received it

It is a huge issue that is being ignored. The forum groups are starting to blame Biden its a mess. Veterans are being told sometime mid-April. I myself understand it is holdovers but many do not. Bro-vets are making YouTube videos saying Biden hates vets which is bullshit. Somebody needs to fix this problem the House Ways and Means sent a letter but more needs to be done.
