If the Democrats had simply put a stand alone bill for $2,000 on the floor “immediately” as promised, it would have sailed through the House like it did in early January. They didn’t want to do that though. They wanted to attach $1,400 checks to other things which were much less popular. They’re going to use budget reconciliation to do this and should have two more similar shots before the 2022 midterms.
Note: I’m more interested in seeing what happens to the child tax credit and the eligibility threshold in the Senate version as that will be more definitive than the House bill.
