Both topics are expected to dominate this week’s Sunday talk shows.

The House on Friday voted 219-209 to pass a budget resolution that would allow Democrats to pass a version of Biden’s coronavirus stimulus plan without Republican support.

The Senate passed a budget resolution early Friday morning to allow Democrats to pass a coronavirus stimulus plan without Republican support.

The upper chamber voted 50-50 to pass the budget, with Vice President Harris casting her first tie-breaking vote in her No.2 position. The House passed the resolution later Friday.

However, senators signaled during Thursday debate that changes would likely be made.

The upper chamber, for instance, approved an amendment that would apply a more targeted approach to the next round of stimulus checks.
