Counteroffer To President Biden’s COVID-19 Relief Bill

Ten Republican senators proposed a meeting with President Joe Biden to discuss a smaller counterproposal to the $1.9 trillion he has planned to release for the coronavirus relief package. Republicans disdained at President Biden’s $1.9 trillion deal especially coming a few weeks after Donald Trump’s $900 billion relief measure. The counterproposal would allegedly cost about $600 billion.
“The outreach from more moderate GOP lawmakers, led by Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, came as many Democrats look to a process called budget reconciliation, which would potentially enable Democrats to approve the president’s plan without any Republican support”, stated by NPR.
