The stimulus check is playing a central role in the second round of Georgia’s Senate elections, which will decide whether Democrats or Republicans control the majority in the Upper House. Two seats are up for grabs. Democrats need to win both to gain control. Republicans, just one of them.
The two Democratic candidates, Reverend Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff argue that Congress has to include direct payments to Americans in its aid package. Negotiators from both parties closed on Wednesday a direct payment of $ 600 dollars compared to the $ 1,200 that was approved in March.
Ossoff is putting particular emphasis on this issue and is on the opposite side of his opponent David Perdue, who has criticized financial aid in the past.
The stimulus payments have been very well received, but the aid has been insufficient especially for the families who need it to survive. Democrats believe that highlighting the issue can help them with voter turnout in the runoff elections held in Georgia on January 5.
“This could be the kind of appeal that could motivate voters to go to the polls, ” said Charles Bullock, a professor of political science at the University of Georgia.
But the $ 900,000 bipartisan proposal that congressional leaders are working on did not originally contemplate stimulus checks or federal unemployment benefits. The progressive caucus issued a statement saying its lawmakers would block any bill that does not provide for help for the majority of Americans.
