Since lawmakers couldn't come to terms on the next coronavirus stimulus bill, a new proposal has been made, and it could be the wildest one yet.
The proposal has come from two US senators, Bernie Sanders, Ed Markey, and Kamala Harris. Under the new proposal called the Monthly Economic Crisis Support Act, Americans would be paid at least $2,000/month for the foreseeable future throughout the duration of the pandemic. Additionally, the bill would pay retroactively as well, meaning that Americans would be paid for the past six months of the pandemic - equating to $12,000 per eligible person.
On top of that, Presidential candidate Joe Biden has chosen Kamala Harris to be his running mate, and while this bill would certainly be tossed out by Republicans, that could be a different story if Biden wins the election. Harris would no doubt push this bill to the forefront of a Biden White House, which could see it passed with minimal changes. Time will only tell if this bill gets through or not, but for now, if you want more information, check out this link here.
