The vote in the House was 275-134 in favor of giving most Americans a one-time check of $2000. This is clearly a gigantic bump up from the initial plan of $600.

Here’s the scoop, via Fox Business:

On Sunday, President Trump signed a $900 billion relief appropriation, which calls for $600 direct payments to Americans. The president initially said he would not approve the measure, motivated by resistance rooted partially in the size of the direct payments.

He has, however, continued to advocate for increasing those payments to $2,000, and Democrats largely agree. Some Republicans, however, are wary of ballooning federal spending figures.

A senior Treasury Department official told NBC News on Monday that the government was still aiming to start delivering stimulus payments to direct deposit accounts at the end of this week. It is unclear how the timetable could be affected if the measure to hike payment amounts passes the Senate.

Joe Biden is certainly transforming America… for the worst. This month the U.S. Air Force was pleased to announce that it had held its first drag queen show which the service insisted was necessary for morale and military readiness. The drag queen show was held on June 17 at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, according to Breitbart News. Per Breitbart: Nellis Air Force Base and the 99th Air Base Wing hosted its first-ever drag show Thursday, June 17, at the Nellis Club. The event was sponsored by a private organization and provided an opportunity for attendees to learn more about the history and significance of drag performance art within the LGBT+ community. Ensuring our ranks reflect and are inclusive of the American people is essential to the morale, cohesion, and readiness of the military. Nellis Air Force Base is committed to providing and championing an environment that is characterized by equal opportunity, diversity and inclusion. Breitbart added: The drag queen show came to light after Air Force veteran podcaster “BK” posted a digital flyer for the event that read: “DRAG-U-NELLIS” and “CLASS IS IN SESSION.” “Discover the significance of Drag in the LGBT+ Community at the Nellis Club,” it said. It was scheduled for Friday, June 17, at 5 p.m. and “Sponsored by the Nellis Top 3.” https://twitter.com/BravoKiloActual/status/1405917447010492418 Nellis Air Force Base is home to the Warfare Center where pilots undergo the most demanding advanced air combat training in the country. “The crews do not come to learn how to fly, but instead how to be the best combat aviators in the world,” the base’s website says. No wonder the whole world is starting to laugh at the U.S. military. Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
