Democrats plan major stimulus bill ‘very soon’ after COVID spending package

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said the Senate will consider another Biden administration stimulus package shortly after it passes a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 spending bill.

“I think we need to go further than just the American Rescue Plan,” Schumer, a New York Democrat, said. “We need a strong stimulus to get our long-term economy going.”

The House is expected to vote this week on the $1.9 trillion package Democrats have labeled the American Rescue Plan. The Senate, Schumer said, will vote on the bill before mid-March.

After that, he said, lawmakers would “very soon” consider a major “Build Back Better” infrastructure and jobs package proposed by President Biden during his 2020 campaign.

“The Build Back Better Plan is something that I think we would turn to very soon after the American Rescue Plan is done,” Schumer said.

Schumer said the legislation “should have big infrastructure, it should be green, it should include communities that are left out, it should deal with worker training.”

Biden proposed a “Build Back Better” plan during his campaign that called for investing $2 trillion in green energy, a public health insurance option, a $15 minimum wage, universal healthcare, preschool and child care, and much more.

“The purpose is to get the economy going at a fast clip once and for all, so we can have the growth that we had in the ’70s and ’80s, not the growth we’ve had since 2000, which has been very low,” Schumer said.
