US Democrats Offer $ 500 Billion More to Fight Coronavirus
"Democrats in Congress are calling for $ 250 billion to be sent to small businesses, while $ 125 billion should be provided through local financial institutions that work with companies and non-profit organizations created by farmers, women, minorities, and veterans", the statement said. Finally, in a statement by Pelosi and Sumer, it is proposed to expand the program for food support for needy Americans (SNAP), increasing payments within its framework by 15%. The amount of the subsidy per person depends on the total number of family members and now is about $ 150.
Democrats see their assistance package as intermediate and then intend to seek new large-scale financial injections into the economy, comparable in scale to those that were adopted in the USA at the end of March.
