The Senate passed the Coronavirus Stimulus after several bumps in the road.

On Wednesday, three Republicans got into a battle with Bernie Sanders over technicalities in the bill.

Save up to 66% on MyPillow products. Use promo code FedUp, and save up to 66%.

The vote was 96-0 ending the deadlock between Republicans and Democrats.

The stimulus package will now go over to the House.

Fox News reports that the bill would provide one-time direct payments to Americans of $1,200 per adult, making up to $75,000 a year, and $2,400 to a married couple making up to $150,000, with $500 payments per child. After a $75,000 threshold for individuals, the benefit would be reduced by $5 for each $100 the taxpayer makes, per Page 145 of the bill. A similar $150,000 threshold applies to couples and a $112,500 threshold for heads of households.

Some pork from Democrats remained:

$25 million for the Kennedy Center

$75 million for PBS/NPR

$75 million National Endowment for the Arts

Sean Hannity commented on the outrageousness of the pork during his monologue Wednesday night:

“Total BS”
