Biden just announced his stimulus plan — and AOC already has a problem with itVideo

AOC suggests federal committee could potentially ‘rein in’ the press

FOX News media analyst and ‘Media Buzz’ host Howard Kurtz has the details on ‘Special Report’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is criticizing President-elect Biden’s new coronavirus relief, arguing that it doesn’t go far enough to help people in need during the pandemic.

Biden’s stimulus plan, which includes the increased payments, would cost $1.9 trillion. According to The Washington Post, most people would end up with a total of $2,000 in stimulus, including $600 checks dispensed in recent legislation.

But that wasn’t enough for Ocasio-Cortez, who appeared to want the latest checks to reach $2,000 as she and others have repeatedly requested. “$2,000 means $2,000. $2,000 does not mean $1,400,″ she told the Post.

In a follow up tweet, Ocasio-Cortez argued that Congress should proivde retroactive unemployment relief, in addition to the $400 per week that Biden included in his latest proposal. Biden’s proposal also expanded from $500 to $1,500 the Earned Income Tax Credit.

With Democrats controlling both chambers and the White House after November’s elections, it appeared more likely they could pass a stimulus package.
