CNN: House passes historic $2 trillion stimulus despite objections from GOP lawmaker
The House of Representatives on Friday approved the historic $2 trillion stimulus package that passed the Senate earlier this week, overcoming last-minute drama by using an unusual procedural move to thwart a demand by a conservative Republican to force members to vote in person.
Rep. Thomas Massie’s (R-KY) attempt to stop this vote was condemned on both sides of the aisle. Donald Trump called the Republican congressman “a third rate Grandstander” who “just wants the publicity.”
