 Biden nods that Democrats are willing to compromise the new stimulus plan of the United States


The great concession of the Democratic Party

For the Democratic Party, this is a big concession to the current situation. Pelosi and Schumer mentioned in the joint statement that:

Although we put forward new proposals to McConnell and McCarthy on Monday, we believe that the framework proposed by the senators yesterday should be the basis for immediate negotiations between the two parties.

As early as may this year, the house of Representatives controlled by the Democratic Party passed a fiscal stimulus plan of up to $3 trillion, but the amount was far higher than the Republican Party expected, so the two sides have not been able to negotiate. By October, Democrats had reduced the stimulus to $2.2 trillion, but it was still hard to get Republican support.

For a new round of fiscal stimulus, McConnell only agrees with the scale of $500 billion. According to the Washington Post, the stimulus he privately talked about on Tuesday was smaller and only $300 billion, far from meeting the expectations of the Democratic Party.

The above-mentioned $908 billion new stimulus plan has been approved by US President-elect Biden. However, in his view, even if it is passed, it is only a temporary measure, and there will be further stimulus after he takes office.

At a virtual round table meeting with workers and small business representatives on Wednesday, Biden said the amount could not fundamentally solve the problem and could only be regarded as a down payment at most, but the US Congress still needs to pass it as soon as possible. He said: its not a political game, its really affecting peoples lives and families. We need help as soon as possible. Americans, including you, really need help now. But while calling on Congress to act, he is not optimistic about the outcome, saying that as long as trump is still at the helm of the White House, the proposal is unlikely to be passed, so, everything is back to the far point.
