House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-Ky.) respective homes were tagged with graffiti over the New Year's holiday as a bill that would up the amount of money included in coronavirus stimulus checks failed to pass in Congress Friday.

Early Friday, Pelosi's San Francisco home was targeted with a spray-painted message that read, "$2K," "Cancel rent!" and "We want everything!" on the garage door of her house, local NBC affiliate WLEX reported.

The Hill reached out to Pelosi's office but did not immediately receive a response.

On Saturday, McConnell's Louisville, Ky., house was targeted with graffiti on its front door that read, "Where's my money" and additional paint sprayed on a window.

House Democrats late last year passed a bill that would increase stimulus checks from $600 to $2,000.

However, the bill was blocked for the fourth straight day in the Senate on Friday, closing the door on an already unlikely chance that lawmakers would be able to get a bill to President Trump to sign before the end of the current Congress.

The 116th Congress ends Sunday morning.

The bill received support from several Republicans in the House at the time it was passed, and some Republicans in the Senate have indicated their support of the measure.

However, other Republicans are opposed to the bill, citing budget deficits.

McConnell had floated that the $2,000 checks could be tied to efforts to repeal Section 230 and form a commission to look into claims of voter fraud and irregularities in the November elections.
