A growing list of Senate Republicans are in support of $2,000 stimulus checks to struggling Americans after the House voted to approve a standalone bill on Monday night.
The legislation now moves on to the State for a vote. If approved, checks and direct deposits will go out by the end of the week. A family of 5 could get $10,000.
President Donald Trump signed the $900 billion Covid-19 relied aid package into law on Sunday night. He called on Congress to remove the pork payments to lobbyists and foreign governments and to approve $2,000 checks to Americans in need.
"Much more money is coming," Trump tweeted on Sunday. "I will never give up my fight for the American people!"
Marco Rubio of Florida (pictured), Kelly Loeffler of Georgia and David Perdue of Georgia all expressed their support for $2,000 stimulus checks on Monday.
"I agree with the [p]resident that millions of working-class families are in dire need of additional relief, which is why I support $2,000 in direct payments to Americans struggling due to the pandemic," Rubio said in a statement.
Loeffler told Fox News that she stands by "the president 100 percent of the time. I'm proud to do that and I've said absolutely, we need to get relief to Americans now and I will support that."
Other Republicans who have come out in support of $2,000 payments include Josh Hawley of Missouri and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.
The Senate will meet on Tuesday to vote on the legislation after rejecting a similar legislation last week.
