Washington, D.C. (ABC) - The spirit of bipartisanship that pervaded over prior stimulus measures seems to have run out on Capitol Hill.
Democrats have proposed spending an additional $3 trillion in stimulus funds to boost the economy and help healthcare workers.
The bill includes another round of direct payments for Americans, $200 billion in hazard pay for frontline healthcare workers, and $1 trillion dollars for state and local governments.
The direct payment to Americans would amount to $1,200.
Democrats could pass the measure through the House as early as Friday.
The bill is expected to come to a screeching halt in the Republican-controlled Senate.
Republicans criticized the new bill as a Democrat wish list and said they want to take a pause before approving any more stimulus funding.
