McConnell previews votes on coronavirus relief

Pelosi says she will probably talk to Mnuchin on coronavirus relief Sunday

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on Sunday said she and members of President Donald Trump's administration have not yet been able to come to an agreement on the language used in an upcoming COVID-19 stimulus package, continuing the monthslong delay.

"On this subject where we have agreement, we don't have agreement on the language yet, but I'm hopeful", Pelosi said.

"Are we going with it, or not?"

Pelosi said the Trump administration had removed 55% of the language originally used in portions about testing and contact tracing.

Asked about whether Americans are going to get pandemic relief before November 3 Election Day, Pelosi said that depends on the Trump administration.

Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin spoke for over an hour Saturday night, and the discussions yielded "some encouraging news on testing", Pelosi's deputy chief of staff Drew Hammill said.

"It is heartless for Democrats to continue their total blockade of any aid whatsoever unless Speaker Pelosi gets her way on countless non-COVID-related demands", he continued.

The Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has said he does not believe he can sell a package of more than $1 trillion to conservative Senate Republicans, which is less than half the size of the bill House Democrats have proposed.

"These unacceptable changes include, but are not limited to, the White House's refusal to commit to a science-based national plan for testing, tracing, and treatment to crush the virus", Pelosi wrote, blasting the administration for eliminating "measures to address the virus's disproportionate and deadly impact on communities of color".

McConnell's own objection to any deal involve the amount.

"There remains an array of additional differences as we go provision by provision that must be addressed in a comprehensive manner in the next 48 hours", Hammill tweeted on Saturday night. The White House is also preparing to release the unspent budget under CARES Act if the stimulus negotiation will again collapse. Fox News reached out to Pelosi's office for clarification of her statement, but they did not immediately respond. "But Americans need help now".

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.

"Republicans have tried numerous times to secure bipartisan agreement where possible and get aid out the door while these endless talks continue". At the beginning of the month, House Democrats passed $US2.2 trillion stimulus legislation, but Sen. "Next week, Senate Republicans will move to break this logjam".
