THE next coronavirus stimulus check could be given only to people who earn less than $40,000 a year.
Talks of a $1trillion package have been ongoing between Republicans and Democrats in Congress and the White House.
However, during a visit to a food pantry in Louisville, Kentucky, on Monday, Mitch McConell said that they may only be sent to Americans who earn under $40,000, according to News Center Maine.
"Liability reform, kids in school, jobs and health care," he said. "That’s where the focus, it seems to me, ought to be."
The stimulus package would include funds for unemployment benefits, a back-to-work tax credit for workers returning to their jobs, a payroll tax cut, liability protections and tax decisions for companies for workers’ restaurant and entertainment expenses, Bloomberg reported.
A decision is expected by the end of July.
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows on Monday said Trump was "supportive" of sending out another around of stimulus checks, but said the president was still undecided.
"I think the president’s been very clear that he’s supportive of another stimulus check," Meadows said.
"And yet at the same time, we want to make sure that we’re addressing things in a real, systemic way, whether that is making sure that the take-home check for every American is greater with a payroll-tax deduction, whether it’s making sure that we provide incentives for American manufacturing to be brought back from abroad."
