(AmericanProsperity.com) – While the latest $600-per-person stimulus payment was helpful for some Americans, many believe it wasn’t enough. In the coming weeks, there may be hope for lawmakers to reach across the aisle and increase the stimulus checks to $2,000 per person. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) is leading the push for this relief.
On Tuesday, January 12, Rubio penned a letter to Joe Biden asking him to encourage Congress to increase the direct stimulus payments. Rubio believed this show of unity would show the nation that lawmakers are able “to put the American people first.”
Axios first obtained the letter, shared here:

Rubio emphasized that the next few months are not the time for “partisan stunts… or cynical ploys,” but rather a time to work in “good faith” with one another. While these words are an honorable call to action, only time will show us whether Biden, if he’s inaugurated, is willing to set aside his radical left agenda in order to serve our nation.
