Biden Aims to get Agenda rolling with Covid relief


Joe Biden will pitch his coronaviru­s relief bill directly to voters this week as his allies declared that “2021 can finally start” with the spectacle of Donald Trump’s impeachmen­t trial at last over. The president hopes to regain the national spotlight with his first major trips outside of Washington this week during which he will make a case for his $1.9 trillion stimulus bill. Biden has made the massive spending bill a cornerston­e of his response to the pandemic but has met with Republican opposition over the huge cost. Recent polls suggest a majority of the public support the package, which would see unemployme­nt benefits extended and direct payments made to most Americans. Biden will make his case directly to voters at a televised event in Milwaukee Tuesday.
