10 Republican senators on Sunday called on President Joe Biden to throw his support behind their own Covid-19 relief package framework, asking the President to work with them on drafting the legislation asking to meet with him to discuss their ideas about the actions needed to address these crises.
“As has been widely reported, the President received a letter today from 10 Republican Senators “With the virus posing a grave threat to the country, and economic conditions grim for so many, the need for action is urgent, and the scale of what must be done is large,” Secretary Jen Psaki said.
The Republican group comprises Senators Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Bill Cassidy (Louisiana), Mitt Romney (Utah), Rob Portman (Ohio), Shelley Moore Capito (West Virginia), Todd Young (Indiana), Jerry Moran (Kansas), Mike Rounds (South Dakota) and Thom Tillis (North Carolina).
The $600 billion Republican proposal would include $1,000 checks, more money for vaccines, extension of unemployment benefits, nutrition assistance, small business aid and money for schools and childcare.
