Velshi: The real difference between $600 and $2000


The House of Representatives approved giving millions of Americans $2,000 relief checks rather than the $600 that had been passed and sent to the President’s desk. That bipartisan bill came up against Sen. Mitch McConnell, who didn’t want the Senate “bullied into rushing out more borrowed money into the hands of Democrats' rich friends who don't need the help.” Mitch McConnell is estimated to be the 9th wealthiest person in Congress – he wouldn’t know what it’s like to choose between paying the electric bill or buying food.
