A trio of liberal senators, including former presidential rivals, introduced new coronavirus relief legislation Friday to provide reoccurring $2,000 monthly payments to most Americans during the pandemic.
Sens. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Ed Markey, D-Mass., argue the one-time payment of $1,200 provided in the previous coronavirus legislation, known as the CARES Act, didn’t go far enough to help families reeling from the health and financial crisis.
“The CARES Act gave Americans an important one-time payment, but it’s clear that wasn’t nearly enough to meet the needs of this historic crisis,” said Harris, a former 2020 Democratic White House contender. “Bills will continue to come in every single month during the pandemic and so should help from government.”
