Joe Biden and Kamala Harris respond to COVID-19 House vote on Twitter
US President Joe Biden tweeted, "Help is here"
VP Kamala Harris wrote Biden "challenged every member of our Administration" to get the bill passed
Representative Cortez also explained the benefits of the bill on Twitter
The US House of Representatives gave one of the final approvals needed by the COVID-19 relief bill, initially proposed by US President Joe Biden, which attracted the much-awaited reactions from the top federal executives of the country, including Vice President Kamala Harris and Biden himself.
While retweeting the official announcement of the bill getting the final legislative approval, Biden wrote "Help is here". The tweet is believed to be a call back of the President's previous statement, which said, "Help is on the way," after the bill got approved in the US Senate.
Biden, who is expected to sign the bill on Friday at the White House, said in a statement, "This legislation is about giving the backbone of this nation -- the essential workers, the working people who built this country, the people who keep this country going -- a fighting chance", reported AFP.
US Vice President Kamala Harris also demonstrated her support for the stimulus package on Twitter and wrote in appreciation of Biden's efforts. She wrote that Biden "promised that help is on the way, and he has been determined to keep that promise. He has challenged every member of our Administration and every member of Congress to help those who are hurting most."
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the progressive Democrat who represents the 14th district of New York in the US House of Representatives, also went on to use Twitter to announce and highlight the benefits that the American people are set to receive from the recently passed relief package.
In a follow-up tweet, Cortez, also commonly known as AOC, urged the people to post any questions they had about the package which she would, in turn, answer on an Instagram live chat.
Even after facing a few minor hiccups in the House, the bill got its final nod with a voting outcome of 220-211 and is expected to land Biden's desk on Friday.
