What Democrats and Republicans want in the next coronavirus relief package

President Donald Trump meets Republican leaders of Congress with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in the Oval Office

"We're moving on the right direction on all fronts".

With an election on the horizon that polls continuously show Trump losing by double-digit margins, and when many Senators in once safely Republican states now faced damaged election odds due to a pandemic out of control, every move the Senate Republican Conference makes over the proceeding 100 days must be carefully calculated- managing to please democrats empowered in the House of Representatives, a president in the White House with ballooning unpopularity, and an American public yearning to vote in the midst of the worst economic crisis seen in America in almost a century.

Mnuchin said it would be included in the Republican proposal, but some GOP senators, such as South Dakota's John Thune, said they remain skeptical. The Internal Revenue Service said last month that more than 159 million Americans have received payments, totaling about $267 billion, with 120 million payments made by direct deposit, 35 million by check and four million by prepaid debit card.

Participants cautioned that the talks were ongoing, and nothing had been finalized. It includes hundreds of billions of dollars for state and local governments, along with pandemic-related spending. The administration similarly believes more funding for the CDC is unnecessary, because of how much money already approved by Congress has not been spent.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said any attempt by the White House to block money for testing "goes beyond ignorance". "I think that's an important point we were able to make talking to the administration today about testing", Blunt said.

A linchpin for Republicans is Trump's insistence on cutting or suspending the payroll tax paid by employers and employees, which funds Social Security and Medicare. "The scale of the problem will require a lot more money than they have so far".

Trump administration officials and Senate Republicans are discussing a short-term extension of unemployment insurance, as lawmakers and the White House appear unlikely to reach a broader stimulus deal before the benefits lapse.

"We will begin our conversations today".

Enhanced unemployment benefits expire for millions of Americans at the end of next week, and the two parties are divided over what to do about it.

Mass shooting near Chicago funeral home injures at least 14 people
Police said Wednesday that two were in critical condition and the other 13 who were injured are expected to recover. There are 117,000 gang members in Chicago split among 55 major gangs, Brown said.

"Everybody understands that the economy will only get worse if we do not, if we do not continue to support working families in our country as we have done", Pelosi said Monday on MSNBC's Morning Joe.

"If that money goes away or gets reduced substantially, it will be a hit to the economy".

There has been little GOP enthusiasm for the payroll tax cut plan, though President Trump has said he might not sign a bill that doesn't include it.

He is expected to unveil the Senate GOP proposal this week that is estimated to cost around $1 trillion. It also will likely have some version of Trump's demand for payroll tax holiday for workers, which many Republicans oppose.

Mnuchin and Meadows will meet separately with Senate Republicans.

"I just don't see the need for it", Sen.

Citing news reports, Schumer yesterday decried the liability push as well as the expected absence in the Senate GOP plan of more funding for state and local governments.

McConnell said the package will include more than $100 billion to help schools reopen in the fall, and another boost to the Paycheck Protection Program, which provided loans to help small businesses across the country retain workers and stay afloat. But after getting pushback from Senate Republicans on several issues, including the payroll tax cut, they were dialing back expectations.
