I applaud the President’s decision to get billions of dollars of crucial COVID-19 relief out the door and into the hands of American families. I am glad the American people will receive this much-needed assistance as our nation continues battling this pandemic.

Congress will vote on additional stimulus checks and repealing Section 230 — all wins for the American people.— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) December 28, 2020
Well done Mr. President!
To be clear, he got commitments the Senate will hold procedural votes on $2,000 direct payments & some Sect. 230 bill.— Phil Mattingly (@Phil_Mattingly) December 28, 2020
And that he’s going to make rescission requests.
And an amorphous commitment on “voter fraud” (of which there remains no evidence to back up Trump’s claims)
In exchange for signing the COVID Relief bill and the Omnibus spending bill, Trump was promised a Senate vote on $2,000 stimulus checks and repeal of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. He also extracted some symbolic concessions like some kind of commission to look into voter fraud. Whether anything of substance ultimately comes of this remains to be seen.
The House should pass the $2,000 stimulus checks bill tomorrow. If McConnell upholds his end of the deal, the Senate should vote on the issue. Now it is up to whether there are enough Republican senators to pass the bill. Ultimately, this was always the sticking point.
