Senator Josh Hawley Announces Direct Cash Relief For American Working Families

Published

on

On Wednesday afternoon Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) took the floor of the United States Senate to give remarks and updates about the Covid stimulus bill that is being negotiated by an eleven member bipartisan group in the Senate.

“Last week I came to this floor on two separate occasions with Senator Sanders to talk about the need for direct assistance for working families. I said that I was willing to use every tool at my disposal to make sure this body acted to give direct assistance to working people in need as a part of Covid relief, and I said then and I say it again today the working people should be first in line for Covid relief, not last. They should be the first consideration, not some after thought,” remarked the Junior Senator from Missouri.

“I please to report that we were told today that direct assistance to working families and working people is in the bill. The working people will be getting assistance.”

The direct assistance relief that is being backed by the unlikely duo of Senators Hawley and Sanders is overwhelmingly popular with voters as it ensures that single Americans are provided with a $1,200 stimulus check, couples are given $2,400, and each child is given $500, which is the same rate of direct relief that Americans were provided in April.

In short, a couple with three children would get $3,900 in direct stimulus relief money to use at their own discretion.

“It would be a dereliction of duty if Congress adjourns for Christmas without having a vote on providing working families with direct payments. Working people are struggling. And they should be the first people given relief, not last,” Hawley said in a statement.

“In the midst of so much economic desperation, Congress cannot go on recess without providing this $1,200 emergency assistance to the American people in their time of need,” Sanders said.

Members of the stimulus negotiating team hope to have a bill ready by the end of the week.

PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks

The Democrat complained about masks.

New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.

Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”

This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.

Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.

Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.

Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
