An earlier version of this article imprecisely described the expected beneficiaries of direct deposits under the stimulus package. The error has been corrected. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he would vote if House of Representatives spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi and the Trump administration were able to seal a deal on a massive COVID-19 discharge bill. The House of Representatives has nine days of formal session and the Senate 14 days before both chambers adjourn for the new year. With less than a month to debate, design and vote on a new stimulus package, Congress is expected to work overtime, including weekends, to reach some kind of deal. It would provide $300 a week in unemployment benefits for about four months – less than the $600 a week Democrats were looking for, while they still relieve tens of millions of unemployed Americans. The deal includes $160 billion in funding for governments and local governments, a top priority for Democrats, which is rejected by most Republicans, and a temporary moratorium on some coronavirus-related complaints against businesses and other businesses – an important Republican priority that most Democrats reject. The measure includes the use of small businesses, schools, health care, transit authorities and student loans, among others. The White House is increasing its offer at COVID 19 aid talks in hopes of a deal before election day. A gop employee, familiar with the new offer, said it was about $1.8 trillion. In the eight months since the passage of the CARES act in March, both sides have maintained their respective positions, Democrats support a major bill with a second cyclical test, and Republicans, who are adopting a smaller aid package as an intermediate solution, until mid-2021, the first mass coronavirus vaccines will be administered.
(Here`s what could happen if a new bill is passed without a stimulation check.) Senate Republicans want a deal on the next stimulus package. A White House proposal to cut payroll taxes has been dropped. The recovery plan is also at the forefront of the August summer holiday period. Time is running out for a stimulus package to be adopted by the end of 2020. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell also agrees that more needs to be done, although its scope is much narrower. After Politico, Pelosi and Schumer “… See something dramatically bigger. It`s not a place I think we like to go,” he said. But I think there must be another package. Let us hope that we will break the deadlock that we have had for four or five months and that we become serious. Pelosi and Minority Senate Leader Chuck Schumer are under increased pressure to support a small stimulus package, even if it means sacrificing some support programs now, with the possibility of getting more help before President-elect Joe Biden`s inauguration on January 20. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has promised that a new coronavirus discharge package could be achieved by the end of the year, as lawmakers will resume work after Tuesday`s election.
A smaller bill could be passed now, and a bigger one could happen later: a subset of programs could be funded before Biden becomes president, such as unemployment aid or an extension of the deportation ban, with the new Congress returning to other programs after his inauguration, such as a second stimulus check. As current president, Trump is expected to sign any legislation passed by January 20 so it can take effect. (CBS Detroit) – Democrats and Republicans agree that a second round of economic stimulus is needed.
