Trump Signed the House Passed $2T historic stimulus Package

The United States House of Representatives approved a historic $2 trillion stimulus relief package on Friday, and earlier, it passed from Senate on Thursday. The package faced opposition with an un-ordinary procedural move to ruin a demand by a conservative Republican lawmaker to force members to vote in person. Today, the U.S. President Trump signed the bill after received for his approval. However, the American nation, as well as the U.S. economy fighting with the disturbing spread of coronavirus.

Thomas Massie, the Republican Representative from Kentucky, incensed members of both political parties by taking them back to Washington due to uncertainty over whether he would demand a complete roll call vote. That uncertainty forced several members to travel during the public health emergency in the U.S. to deny his request to certify immediate passage of the measure on Friday.

Finally, the leadership of House was able to disagree, Massie, an adequate second in favor of a roll call vote when he requests for it, revoking the demand and letting the House approve the stimulus package by voice vote instead. Whereas, the House members still need to return to Washington with the intention to establish a minimum number and reject the attempt.

The comprehensive lawmaking stands as the biggest emergency relief package in the history of the United States. It signifies a huge monetary injection into a fighting economy with supplies intended to help the U.S. workers, small businesses as well as the industries facing economic disruption. The vital elements of the aid package include sending cash checks directly to people and families, a key growth of unemployment benefits, money for health care providers and hard-hit hospitals, financial aid for small businesses, and $500 billion in loans for larger distress companies.

The threat from Massie

House members faced pressure to pass the bill for stimulus package as soon as possible and lessen the risks to their members in the process – and the legislation expected to take up with voice vote. This step would allow rapid passage and designed to enable House leaders not to return to Washington for a full roll call vote.

However, on Friday, Massie announced that he would demand a dull roll-call vote. In an effort to force the full vote, Massie said on the floor of House that he came there to ensure their Republic didn’t deny by joint agreement in an empty chamber, and he requested a recorded vote. A minimum of 216 members needed to block the attempt of Massie.

However, Massie made a point, the absence of a quorum in the House, but it determined the presence of a quorum. House members who made it to Washington DC., for the discussion, tried to keep proper social distancing, with some members staying on the floor of the House while others sat above the chamber in the upstairs gallery, where usually public sits.

Criticism of U.S. President Donald Trump on Massie

Donald Trump severely criticized the Congress member on Friday in his tweets by related it as a publicity stunt and should throw out of the Republican party. He tweeted, seems like a 3rd rate Grandstander named as Representative Thomas Massie, a Congressman regrettably from a great State, Kentucky, intends to vote against the new relief stimulus package bill in Congress. The man can not stop the bill but only delay, and both are dangerous and costly.

In the second part of the tweet, the president said that in order to survive, workers and small businesses need financial support. The virus was not their fault. It is hell to deal with the Dems, have to give away some rubbish things to complete the big picture. Ninety percent great win back from House, but throw out Massie from the party.

On Thursday, Massie expressed on a local radio station, 55KRC talk radio, that he was facing a very tough time with the aid bill and did not seem too worried about the difficulties of policymakers in getting back to DC.
