Democrats blocked a new package of measures to support the US economy

The new version of the bill regulating further measures to stimulate the American economy in the context of the pandemic was blocked by Democrats in the US Senate on September 10, The Hill reports.

52 senators voted for the document, 47 against. To pass the stage of procedural voting, the initiative had to gain 60 votes.

Note that the bill was presented to the vote on September 8 by the leader of the Republican Party faction in the Senate Mitch McConnell. The total amount of funds proposed to be directed to support the economy is about $500 billion.

Of this, $105 billion is expected to be allocated to support schools, $31 billion to develop vaccines against coronavirus, $16 billion to conduct medical tests, and to provide a weekly federal unemployment benefit of $300 by the end of the year.
