President Joe Biden decides to move forward with Republicans' counter plan to the $1.9T Corona Virus Relief plan.
The meeting held by President Biden and Treasury Secretary Janet Yalen with the Democratic Senators decided that the proposal made by GOP senators was too small.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schummer said that if such a small package is approved democrats will be mired all along for the COVID-crisis.
The decision came after the day Biden hold a meeting with Ten GOP senators, who proposed a $600 Billion counter-proposal. Biden had rejected the proposal in the meeting.
Democrat Lawmakers also hoped for the second round of a relief plan by March when the additional unemployment benefits and other sets of aids are set to expire.
Democrats voted on Tuesday to proceed with the bill via budget reconciliation which will allow them to pass the bill with a simple majority bypassing potential Republican filibuster.
The vote launches 50 hours of debate on a budget resolution, with amendment votes expected later this week.
Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell blasted the decision saying Democrats chose a path of partisan, which he called "unfortunate."
