Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Capitol Hill Saturday. The current draft legislation, rolled out by the Senate GOP andobtained by Fox News on Thursday, would provide payments of up to $ 1,200 per person. They would be phased down at adjusted gross income thresholds of $ 75,000 for individuals and $ 150,000 per couple. Additionally, there would be $ 500 payments for each child. The amount, though, is slated to then be reduced by $ 5 for each $ 100 a taxpayers income exceeds the legislations threshold. The amount is reduced to zero for single taxpayers with incomes exceeding $ 99,000 and $ 198,000 for joint filers. The legislation also outlined $ 300 billion for small businesses to keep furloughed and laid-off workers on the payroll and $ 208 billion in loans to airlines and other industries. Some Republicans have objected to certain measures outlined in the bill, and most Democrats, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, have sounded the alarm saying the measure does not go far enough in protecting American families, and is too focused on corporations. Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., introduced an amendment to McConnells plan on Saturday, which aimed to expand relief forlow-income and middle-income Americans.Hawleys plan lowers the threshold for Americans to qualify for the $ 1,200 relief. In order to qualify, under Josh Hawley amendment, an individual must be a U.S. citizen with a Social Security number. Under McConnells plan, an individual must file taxes and have an income greater than $ 0 in order to qualify, which Josh Hawley says leaves behind Americans who are disabled, or living in public housing that dont file taxes due to not having any true income of their own. During this emergency our focus should be on helping every American who needs it, including especially our most vulnerable citizens, excluding or penalizing families with lower incomes doesnt make sense. Congress should prioritize lower-income and middle-class families through this crisis. Meanwhile, White House Legislative Affairs Director Eric Ueland declined to share specific details Capitol Hill Saturday on whether all GOP senators were on board with the ongoing discussions over the stimulus package.
Members of the GNC will attend the talks as representatives of the legislative body.
As the legislative process goes forward, the President and I believe that the American Health Care Act is the framework for reform. We're certainly open to improvements and recommendations in the legislative process, but this is the bill, and the President supports the American Health Care Act and looks forward to working very directly with the leadership of the House and Senate to move this bill.
From where I stand, I'm deeply disappointed that the House leadership would proceed in that way in something that is so obviously beneath the dignity of the offices they hold. It's really a new low for the current House of Representatives, we're talking about a matter, the census, in which the Supreme Court has already ruled, and we have moved on. So, the House has not identified some compelling legislative need for this. To the contrary this makes no sense at all.
We are not going to give up until we get this road, our efforts to obtain legislative relief remain unabated.
