Rashida Tlaib responds to Trump’s call for $2,000 checks for Americans” Me and AOC have the amendment ready”

Tuesday, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) responded to President Trump’s call for $2k checks for Americans instead of $600k checks.

Tlaib tweeted “Me and @AOC have the amendment ready. Send the bill back, and we will put in the $2,000 we’ve been fighting for that your party has been blocking.”

Tlaib did not address the “wasteful” spending cuts Trump also called for. 

AOC then chimed in, tweeting:

Let’s do it. @RashidaTlaib and I already co-wrote the COVID amendment for $2,000 checks, so it’s ready to go.

Glad to see the President is willing to support our legislation.

We can pass $2k checks this week if the Senate GOP agrees to stand down.

Chuck Schumer then chimed in “I’m in. Whaddya say, Mitch? Let’s not get bogged down with ideological offsets and unrelated items and just DO THIS! The American people deserve it. @senatemajldr”
