Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders on Sunday reminded Americans that "not a single Republican voted" for President Joe Biden's American Rescue Plan, which provided $1,400 stimulus checks.
In March, the Democratic-controlled House passed the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill in a 220-211 vote, with all Republicans and one Democrat opposing it.
The final House vote on the amended legislation came after Senate Democrats used a budget process called reconciliation to pass the legislation in the upper chamber without Republican support.
Not a single Republican voted to provide a $1,400 direct payment to the working class or a $3,000 Child Tax Credit.
We must do the same with the American Jobs and Family plans," tweeted Sanders, an independent.
"The president still has hope, Joe Manchin still has hope" a bipartisan deal can be reached, she added. »
