The full text of the final $2 trillion economic stimulus plan hasn't been publicly released, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says the GOP-led Senate will still vote Wednesday on the legislation.

"The Senate is going to stand together, act together, and pass this historic relief package. Struggling Americans are going to go to their mailboxes and find four-figure checks to help with their bills because the Senate stepped up," the Kentucky Republican said in a Senate floor speech. "We are going to pass this legislation later today." 

Just the News reached out to McConnell's office on Wednesday requesting the full text of the final negotiated legislation. The office provided some background information but has yet to provide the full text. 


White House and Senate negotiators struck a deal overnight on a draft bill. 
Since then, social media has lit up with calls to make the bill public before the GOP-controlled Senate votes on what is poised to be the biggest stimulus spending bill in U.S. history.

A Twitter user asked: "Where's the copy of the bill?? We would like to see it!!!" 
Another Twitter subscriber wrote, "Where's the bill? Let us see it!"
Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said on the Senate floor Wednesday that "we have a bipartisan agreement on the largest rescue package in American history." 

Shortly after, a small business owner tweeted at Schumer asking where they could find the text of the bill. 
Another Twitter user asked, "Where's the link to the bill?"
"I haven't seen a text," Florida GOP Sen. Rick Scott told Fox News on Wednesday afternoon.  READ MORE...
