(TheConservativeNews.org) – After a week of tough negotiations with the White House, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) introduced the next stimulus package. The HEALS Act is a massive $1 trillion bill, but it has something for everyone in it. 

Here are a few of the most items included in the bill:

  • A second stimulus check of up to $1,200 and it won’t cap the number of dependents a family can have in order to receive the extra $500 per child
  • An extension of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)
  • Extended unemployment benefits of 70% of a person’s income before they were laid off instead of $600 a week payments
  • About $105 billion for schools
  • More money for COVID-19 testing

Democrats are already complaining about the bill. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), for example, said it’s not good enough. 

This was just the first step. Now lawmakers on both sides of the aisle must work with one another to get a final bill out to help the American people.
