A group of Republican and Democratic representatives will present an economic stimulus plan of at least $ 1.5 trillion (1.5 trillion in English) in the Lower House, in a last attempt to unblock the barrier between their leaders. And which, however, is unlikely to prosper.
It will be the bipartisan group known as Problem Solvers Caucus Whoever submits their proposal for a federal aid package that includes more money for small businesses, unemployment benefits, and sending a second check to households (or problem solving group).
According to a report by The New York Times, the members of the group recognize that their initiative has little chance of prospering as it is, especially in a Senate where there has been a strong reluctance from Republicans to approve a huge aid plan that will increase the budget deficit.
However, the representatives believe that with their move they can send a signal to party leaders to act before the November 3 presidential election draws closer.
The latest attempt made in the Senate, the Republican plan for about $ 300 billion, failed last week and did not even advance to debate and a final vote in that chamber.
Democrats blocked it, deeming it insufficient and far removed from the plan for at least $ 2 billion that they said they could support in the Senate.
