Mitch McConnell Opens Door to 2nd Round of Stimulus Checks

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Monday supported a second round of stimulus checks amid the coronavirus pandemic, echoing the sentiments of from Larry Kudlow, National Economic Council director, who said last month that additional direct payments could go toward “people who lost their jobs and are most in need.”

McConnell said during a public appearance in Kentucky that another wave of stimulus payments to Americans “could well be” a part of the next economic relief package, adding that people with lower incomes had suffered most from the economic pain of the pandemic.

“I think the people who have been hit the hardest are people who make about $40,000 a year or less,” the Kentucky Republican said. “Many of them work in the hospitality industry.”

McConnell’s remarks appeared to reflect the new position he might take in stimulus negotiations.
