Minnesota Conservatives Voted Against COVID Relief Payments For Families
Let’s start with the good news:
On Monday, the Biden administration announced that millions of American families will begin receiving direct cash payments starting on July 15. The payments are part of progressives’ American Rescue Plan that they passed in March.
Eligible families will be able to receive monthly payments of up to $300. And those COVID relief payments will be deposited directly in most families’ bank accounts on the 15th of every month — or the closest day to that date, if the 15th falls on a holiday or weekend — for the rest of the year.
In Minnesota, over one million families will benefit. And the COVID relief payments will help to lift over 40,000 Minnesota kids out of poverty.
As families work to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, this will be a much-needed boost.
Now, the bad news:
Minnesota conservatives in Congress all voted against COVID relief payments for families working to recover from the pandemic.
But that’s not all. They also voted against your stimulus checks.
