House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) told fellow Republicans on a Wednesday afternoon call that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi won’t succeed in her bid for unanimous consent to pass $2,000 COVID-19 stimulus checks on Thursday.
Pelosi’s proposed Christmas Eve vote would follow President Trump’s unexpectedly refusal Tuesday to sign a $2.3 trillion stimulus and government funding bill, saying its $600 stimulus checks should be $2,000.
Trump also objected to extraneous funding, including billions in foreign aid.
“House Democrats appear to be suffering from selective hearing,” McCarthy wrote in a Wednesday night letter to House Republicans.
“They have conveniently ignored the concerns expressed by the President, and shared by our constituents, that we ought to reexamine how our tax dollars are spent overseas while so many of our neighbors at home are struggling to make ends meet.”
McCarthy wrote that Republicans would offer a competing proposal for unanimous House action on Thursday — which is likely will be shot down by Democrats.
“Republicans will offer a unanimous consent request to revisit the State and Foreign Operations title of the Omnibus so that we can fully address the concerns at hand,” McCarthy wrote. “It will be up to Speaker Pelosi to decide if she wants to act on behalf of the American people.”
