Biden urges Congress to pass new stimulus bill

United States President-elect Joe Biden urged Congress on Thursday to pass a new stimulus bill to alleviate the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

"Millions of people are out of work. Small businesses are closing. People are struggling to pay their bills, stay in their homes, and put food on the table," Biden noted.

Earlier in the day, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer all expressed their optimism a bipartisan deal on the matter would be reached soon.
