The Biden administration has passed a combined omnibus spending bill and virus relief package that is the second largest stimulus bill in U.S. history. It provides $1400 stimulus checks and extends weekly federal unemployment benefits. According to an article in FinalCall.com, the bill provides $1.9 trillion in emergency coronavirus relief to fund the U.S. government. The spending bill and virus relief package is expected to help families and small businesses as the COVID-19 pandemic threatens economic stability. FinalCall.com reported that the bill was passed without any Republican support in either the House or the Senate.
Several months ago President Biden said that the U.S. was set to “mark independence” from COVID-19 by the fourth of July, thanks to a mass vaccination effort that was reaching about 2.25 million U.S. residents a day. That prediction never materialized. The U.S. has just reached a new high of over 29.6 million coronavirus (COVID-19) infections according to newyorktimes.com. As President Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris joined Dr. Anthony Fauci to celebrate the 50 millionth COVID-19 vaccination, the U.S. COVID-19 death toll skyrocketed to 561,021.
America has a population of over 328.2 million. The number of people who have received COVID-19 vaccinations represent only 15 percent of the U.S. population according to statistica.com. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell warned that the next 3 to 6 months will likely be painful as pandemic cases spike. Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package offers temporary relief as the COVID-19 pandemic threatens America’s economic recovery and U.S. stability.
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan said during remarks at the Virtual Black Nubian Leadership Summit “Don’t fear losing a job or being denied school because of refusal to take the COVID-19 vaccine”. “Do for yourself and create your own education system, which you have the expertise and knowledge to do” he said.
