Senate Democrats vote in September to provide 300 unemployment benefits

The Senate Democrats voted early Saturday morning to provide 300 weekly federal unemployment payments in early September – effectively reversing the GOP’s attempt to end those payments in mid-July.

All Democrat senators voted in favor of the amendment, paying $ 300 a week for the week. Vote. Every Republican to vote opposes it.

The vote came about an hour after the Senate Republicans won a short-term victory over Sen.

But the Democratic aide telegraphed in advance how the play would go. There was a delay of about an hour between Portman and Wyden votes as Democrats were still waiting to find out the value of their proposal.

“We expect Senator Portman to introduce his UI amendment and pass it. However, it will be postponed by the Senate Democrats’ new UI agreement, which will be introduced and passed as an amendment tonight,” the Democratic aide said ahead of the vote. .

Both proposals are a change from the House-passed bill that was paid every week until the end of August Gust.

Democrats continued to debate the coronavirus relief bill for about 12 hours starting Friday afternoon as they tried to work on an agreement on the language of unemployment.

They initially hinted that a deal had been struck with them on Friday morning that would have provided an unemployment benefit of 300 in early October.

But as the day dragged on and Democrats set a new record for the longest vote in modern Senate history – it became clear that Democrats were roaming to stop Manchin’s support.

Because of the thin 50-50 margin, Democrats needed the support of their full caucus for a deal on unemployment payments in the bill. They announced their final contract, backed by Manchin, at 8pm on Friday.

Per weekly payment. In addition to the કર 300, the Democratic Agreement also deducts, 10,200 from unemployment benefits from federal income tax for households earning less than 1,000,000.

“Our goal is to secure the most accurate defense for employed Americans that the Senate can pass,” Wyden said in a vote.
