Americans will likely have a better chance at a third relief check with the parties on 50 seats each and the casting vote going to Vice President Kamala Harris.

During his campaign Ossoff said he spoke with President-elect Biden and the stimulus checks will be issued within two and a half weeks of this election if he won the Senate seat.

“The House has already passed the $2,000 dollar checks,” he told WGXA

“This new Senate that is going to take office this weekend will pass the legislation early next week. We will get the checks in the mail and relief coming.”

Ossoff said he wanted “economic relief for the American people who are suffering through no fault of their own through this Covid-19 pandemic, and supporting the public health response”.

Biden said he is working on a new Covid relief package which would give $2,000 payments to Americans and urged a “need to provide more immediate relief for families and businesses now”.

Senate minority Chuck Schumer vowed that $2,000 stimulus checks for Americans will be “one of the first things” a Democrat-led Senate will do.

But that could come up against opposition from Democratic Senator Joe Manchin despite Biden wanting them issued “immediately.”

The 73-year-old senator told The Washington Post on Thursday that he is “absolutely not” willing to to sign off $2,000 – but later admitted he would support something if it helped people truly in need.

Meanwhile the $600 stimulus checks are on their way with people getting them sent directly told to watch out for a plain envelope.
