House Passes Historic $2 Trillion Stimulus Package Despite Last Minute Objections

House Passes Historic $2 Trillion Stimulus Package Despite Last Minute Objections On Friday, the House of Representatives approved the $2 trillion stimulus package that passed the Senate earlier this week.

The package was pushed through despite Rep.

Thomas Massie requesting a roll call vote, which infuriated members of both parties.

The Congress members had to return to Washington in order to establish a quorum and deny Massie's attempt.

The legislation stands as the largest emergency aid package in U.S. history and will head to President Trump's desk to be signed into law.

It will provide a financial boost to a floundering economy with provisions to aid businesses and workers alike.

Key provisions in the package include sending checks to individuals, expansion of unemployment benefits and allocating extensive funds to hospitals and healthcare professionals.
