Bernie Sanders Pushes For $1,200 Second Round Stimulus Check


Sen. Bernie Sanders proposes $1,200 stimulus payouts for ongoing Covid -19 bill talks after Democratic leadership backed a proposal without them last week.


According to reports on VICE, Sanders, joined by other progressive legislators, also wants his colleagues to rally against liability protections for corporations facing coronavirus-related lawsuits. That kind of legal shield, disliked by both Democrats and labor unions, is nonetheless included in a current bipartisan $908 billion framework for a COVID-19 relief bill.


Sanders and Democratic Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Edward Markey, Kirsten Gillibrand, Jeff Merkley, and Ron Wyden, wrote a letter Tuesday addressing colleagues. Get a first hand look at the letter below and follow this story for developing updates.
