When it comes to President Biden and his COVID-19 relief package, it's go big or go home.

"I'm going to act," Biden said Friday. "I'm going to act fast."

Biden says he would prefer the legislation be bipartisan, but Republicans are nowhere near being on board with the president's $1.9 trillion proposal that includes money to speed vaccine distribution, aid small businesses, reopen schools, shore up state and local budgets, and get $1,400 direct payments out to individuals.
