Another stimulus check could be your hands by mid-March.

On Tuesday President Biden pitched his COVID relief plan during a town hall.

It extends unemployment benefits, provides $160 billion for vaccinations and testing, along with helping small businesses and would give most Americans a $1,400 check.

However, Republicans continue to push back saying the entire plan is way too expensive.

President Biden also wants teachers to be moved up in line to get their coronavirus shots and kindergarten through 8th-grade students back in class five days a week.
