Pelosi Sets Monday Deadline If Trump Wants Pre-Election Stimulus

Pelosi Sets Monday Deadline If Trump Wants Pre-Election Stimulus”

Pelosi said following a Saturday night phone call with Mnuchin, she remained hopeful a package can get passed but said the results of the negotiations will ultimately lie with the Trump administration. "But Speaker Pelosi keeps saying she feels "nothing" is better than "something" and clinging to far-left demands that are created to kill any hope of a deal", the Kentucky Republican said in a statement. She said that the administration changed terms like "requirements" to "recommendations", and "plan" to "strategy", and "shall" to "may".

"Because we want to have an agreement we can come to negotiation, and we can do it now but what's the difference, a few days, except we can have it before the election, which we want it as soon as possible", Pelosi said.

"I certainly want [a deal], because I don't want to have to be sweeping up after this-dumpings of this elephant-as we go into a new presidency in a few short months". She has stuck to her demand for a $2.2 trillion aid and stimulus package. They put that out and I said, "Thank you very much, Mr. President"."But we left because there was no goal to staying there". Their staff members are still talking.

According to the Senate Majority leader, the new bill will include a federal unemployment benefit, another round of small-business assistance under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), more than $100 billion for schools, as well as money for testing, contact tracing, and vaccine development and distribution, The Hill news website reported.

In a follow-up tweet Saturday, Hammill said that existing disagreements "must be addressed in a comprehensive manner in the next 48 hours".

"Decisions must be made by the White House in order to demonstrate that the Administration is serious about reaching a bipartisan agreement that provides for Americans with the greatest needs during the pandemic", Hammill said. Fox News reached out to Pelosi's office for clarification of her statement, but they did not immediately respond.

In the spring, the Democrat-led House passed a $3 trillion bill but the Republican-led Senate did not move that forward.

Mr. McConnell said if the procedural votes pass successfully this week, there will be enough time for the bills to get through the Senate before they take on the final votes for Judge Barrett's confirmation.

While Pelosi has stood firm for a deal that would go way beyond the relative paltry $500 billion package that McConnell has put together and plans to bring to the Senate floor for a vote this week, progressives have been trying to pressure the Speaker to agree to something like the $1.8 trillion deal that Mnuchin in the president-at least momentarily-agreed to two weeks ago. Trump himself said of the Senate Republicans, "They'll go".
