Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says much more money is needed.
Ocasio-Cortez said Congress should pass a larger bill that provides more money to American workers and small businesses.
“Rent doesn’t wait on Congress. I understand the idea of an “interim” patch bill, but if Congress doesn’t know when it will next convene, we need to vote on a bigger fix now. We need WAY more for PPP, $2000 monthly cash payments (plus $1k for each child), & cover health bills,” she said in a tweet.
“It is simply outrageous that Congress is considering voting on a small, patchwork bill after being out of session for a MONTH and recessing again without knowing when we will next convene. Thousands of people are DYING. PPP will quickly run out again. We need a bigger bill,” she said.
