House GOP kills bid for $2,000 stimulus checks, Democrats vow full house vote (CNN)

The House of Representatives failed to advance a measure that would increase direct payments to Americans under a certain income level to $2,000 -- up from the $600 level passed earlier this week -- bringing lawmakers back to square one as they search for a way to appease President Donald Trump's demands.
House Democrats tried to quickly pass the bill by a unanimous consent request Thursday morning, but Republicans rejected the move, leaving the future of the $900 billion stimulus package -- and whether any changes will be added to it -- in doubt.

He's like those stupid Bond henchmen - the ones 007 dispatches in the first 30 minutes or so of the movie.

"But Mr. Bond! I wanted stimulus!"

"Well, here it is..." (electrocutes henchman to a crisp)

"How stimulating."
