STRIKE A POSE, THERE’S NOTHING TO IT: Pelosi calls $600 stimulus checks ‘significant’ but said $1k tax cut bonuses were ‘crumbs’ in 2018.

Sharing is Caring!

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., lauded a $900 billion coronavirus relief package agreed upon by lawmakers over the weekend, which includes another round of economic impact payments.

Pelosi called the $600 stimulus payments “significant” on the House floor on Monday, while adding that she would have liked them to have been bigger.

During negotiations that have been ongoing for months regarding additional coronavirus-related relief, both Democrats and Republicans have separately proposed giving Americans another round of $1,200 checks – which is what was provided under the CARES Act.

While Pelosi praised the $600 payment provision, she previously characterized thousand-dollar bonuses provided to employees by corporate America as “crumbs” in 2018.
