"Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), with the backing of the Senate Democratic caucus, is prepared to make life miserable for Senate Republicans if they do not put a clean vote on the floor to increase one-time emergency payments to most Americans approved in the recent COVID relief package from $600 to $2,000.

Sanders has the procedural means at his disposal to keep the Senate in session all the way to New Year’s Day, inconveniencing Senators of both parties, particularly the incumbent Republicans from Georgia, who are in their final full week of campaigning for runoff elections on January 5. In order to get through the week without a clean vote on the $2,000 payments, Senate Majority Mitch McConnell (R-KY) will have to object numerous times to Sanders’ pleas to bring up the bill.

The $2,000 payment bill passed the House on Monday under the name the CASH Act. Forty-four Republicans joined all but two Democrats in the bipartisan vote. President Trump repeatedly called for the increase to $2,000 while delaying his signature on the COVID relief package, which he finally signed on Sunday night."
