Senate Republicans are currently negotiating with the White House for what to include in the next virus relief package.

The Trump administration was strongly in favor of a payroll tax cuts, but Senate Republicans feared that the impact on social security could be devastating, and instead voiced support for another round of stimulus checks. Not to mention, the millions of Americans who found themselves unemployed over the course of the pandemic won't benefit from a payroll tax cut.

Though the Trump administration's push for the tax cut fell through due to lack of support from GOP senators, Trump insisted on Twitter that it was actually the Democrats' fault.

But Republican Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) himself voiced opposition to the tax cut, saying:

"Social Security people think we're raiding the Social Security fund. And we are raiding it"

According to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Republican Senators instead intend to include a $1200 stimulus check to certain American families making up to $75 thousand a year.

At a press conference on Thursday afternoon, the President appeared to have given up on the calls for a payroll tax cut, saying they would "move on to the next thing."

People weren't buying Trump's attempt to pass the buck to Democrats.






The roasting continued.



After Republicans complete inter-party negotiations on the second stimulus, the negotiations with Democratic senators will begin.
