U.S. President Joe Biden hinted at reporters on Friday that he would sign a stimulus package into law even without the backing of Republican lawmakers. He did, however, express that he would prefer having the support of the GOP lawmakers for the said stimulus.

Reporters asked Biden if he supported Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s promise to approve a stimulus package by reconciliation. It’s a method that allows the Senate to approve budget decisions with a majority vote. To this, the president answered that he would prefer the approval of a relief package with backing from the GOP if they can get it. However, he did say that, with or without support from the Republicans, the package needs to pass.

The answer from Biden went slightly deeper than what Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary, said on Thursday.

Republican legislators still have the ability to vote for the stimulus package “even if it goes through with reconciliation,” Psaki said. She added that the said lawmakers can “support it regardless.”

Apart from this, Psaki expressed that they feel confident that people will hear what their constituents want and eventually support a bipartisan bill. She further stated that addressing American issues is a “part of unifying the country.”
