House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer agreed to President Donald Trump’s demand to increase the paltry $600 direct payments to $2,000 per American or he would refuse to sign their $900 billion pork-filled Covid-19 relief package. If Trump signs the bill this week, some Americans may receive $6,000 for a family of 3 or $10,000 for a family of 5 in direct payments before Christmas.
