On Tuesday afternoon, Senate Majority Leader McConnell blocked consideration of the CASH Act, which would provide an additional $1,400 stimulus check for a total of $2,000. The CASH Act passed the House of Representatives on Monday by a vote of 275-134. Senator Sanders has stated he will object, delaying a planned Wednesday vote to override President Trump’s veto of the National Defense Authorization Act until an up-or-down vote on the CASH Act occurs.
