The House passed Biden's $1.9 trillion Covid-19 stimulus package very early this morning.

I explain what this means and what you need to know about this legislation now that it heads to the Senate with @Christi_Paul and @VictorBlackwell this morning on New Day!

And here is @DaniellaMicaela (who was up early to deliver the news) breaking down everything in the package:

.@WhipClyburn made it clear that the White House and Senate weren't interested in overruling the parliamentarian or ending the filibuster, so:
"We'll come back with an independent, stand-alone piece of legislation and we are going to pass it again and hope that they respond."

House progressives want to railroad through the parliamentarian's ruling and kill the filibuster to pass a minimum wage increase. Senate progressives, including Bernie Sanders, aren't on board.

Interesting piece from @ryanobles @AnnieGrayerCNN

But- Pelosi promised that the House was not going to stop fighting:
“But as a matter of values, I can just say, we will not rest until we pass the $15 minimum wage."

She didn't explain how they will accomplish that goal w/o 60 votes for it in the Senate.

I asked @SpeakerPelosi if she agreed the Senate should kill the filibuster or overrule the parliamentarian to get the minimum wage hike in the Covid relief bill. She didnt take the bait.
“As a matter of practice, I don't get involved in the rules of the United States Senate,”

The future of the minimum wage fight became the main topic of discussion in the Democratic press conference on the Covid relief pkg.
