Ed Markey has joined forces with his U.S. Senate colleagues, Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris, to create a plan that would provide relief to Americans struggling to survive through the pandemic.


“It would ensure that they would have the income in their pockets to be able to make it through this crisis,” Markey said.

The Monthly Economic Support Act would provide $2,000 each month to people earning $120,000 or less annually.

Married couples would receive $4,000, and families would receive $2,000 per child up to three children.
