Widespread support for Biden’s stimulus bill
In Congress, the President has struggled to find any Republicans who will back his American Rescue Plan, with GOP lawmakers unwilling to support the $1.9 trillion of federal spending that the bill requires.

Part of the recent for this popularity may be the proposed third stimulus check that is contained within the bill, offering up to $1,400 as a direct payment to eligible Americans. The first large-scale bill provided checks worth up to $1,200, but that was signed last March and there has been little in the way of direct payments since then.
