WH: Biden spoke with Congress on COVID aid bill

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said on Friday that President Joe Biden has already spoken with lawmakers on his proposal for a next coronavirus stimulus bill and will speak again with them "soon."

"Biden has done a number of calls with Democrats and Republicans on his COVID package," Psaki told reporters, adding that the president is "eager to get relief to Americans" in the form of a bipartisan bill.

Earlier this week, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that the House of Representatives would be ready to pass Biden's $1.9 trillion relief bill in the first week of February.
