Schumer vows Senate will pass relief bill this week

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer vowed on Thursday that the Senate will finish and pass the $1.9 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill this week "no matter how long it takes."

Speaking in the Senate, Schumer highlighted the importance of passing more relief urgently, claiming that the US economy has been in a deep crisis that "won't be quick and easy to get out of."

The senator furthermore noted that "the entire country" has come behind the American Rescue Plan, except for "the Republicans here in Congress."
