WASHINGTON (AP) -- A stronger than expected jobs report could further scramble an already uncertain picture for passing a fifth and possibly final coronavirus aid bill. The positive statistics are feeding the wait-and-see approach of the White House and its GOP allies in Congress.


Republicans say the numbers vindicate their decision to take a pause and assess the almost $3 trillion in assistance they already have approved. The White House was already showing little urgency about pursing another trillion-dollar response bill, much less the $3.5 trillion measure passed by the House last month, and prefers to concentrate on reopening the economy.

The coming weeks are expected to bring difficult negotiations over what the package should contain, just months before an election where the White House and control of Congress are at stake.

For lawmakers, tough decisions loom about how much money to allocate to states, how to extend unemployment benefits for millions of people and whether to create lawsuit protections for businesses and schools as they reopen during the pandemic.

Now, Republicans have set a goal of keeping the cost of the next bill below $1 trillion. That's going to be a hard sell for Pelosi, who devoted almost $1 trillion just to states and localities.

Supporters of a deal had hoped to reach an agreement this month, but acknowledge the annual August recess is now looking more like the informal deadline. For starters, leadership aides in both parties acknowledge there have been virtually no bipartisan talks so far, with Pelosi and McConnell communicating through their public statements.

"Future efforts must be laser-focused on helping schools reopen safely in the fall, helping American workers continue to get back on the job, and helping employers reopen and grow," McConnell said Friday.


You have been on recess #Moscow Mitch....................and your worried about August............. .............over 40 million Americans are worried about what tomorrow is going to bring.................

Hey #Moscow Mitch..................lets get something straight, there is no vaccine, no matter how the smoke is being blown up everyone's ass to make it look good.................your libertarian Federalist Society sh*t sandwich isn't going to work this time or your hypocritical libertarian members.....................that is our money, not the banks, not the oligarchs, and Pelosi and Shumer are right and the public is not and should not have anything less ..............the people in this country still need help and those BLS ( Bureau Labor Statistic) number's are full of sh*t.........I really don't like numbers being fudged to enable and gas lighting schussing jerk sitting at a table who is going down in bunker flames and charging $42,000 in food, when he was challenged this last Friday, before heading to Maine to stuff a swab up his mouth...............

3. Problem is we know that Trump and his supporters fiddled with the unemployment numbers to try and

cover up how bad the numbers are so Mitch had better be worried and if I was in his shoes I would consider booking a flight to Moscow now rather than wait until after Biden is sworn in.

7. If Mitch, Trump and the rest are already out of the country and safe in Russia revoking their

passports after Biden is sworn in will accomplish little as Putin will protect them because if he does not he knows that they could potentially reveal any other remaining hidden assets he has here in the US.

6. Sort of surprised

Since they’ve been funneling the lion’s share to their rich pals.

Why pass up such a golden opportunity, with a few crumbs sent to the people to try to buy votes?

18. Weren't the latest job numbers just announced Thursday or yesterday?

One of the cable channels (Animal Planet I think) have run a couple of adds this evening proclaiming the "record setting" May job numbers, of course due to the stupendousness of Mr. "I take no responsibility at all". Now the success is all his doing.

So this begs the question, how long does it take to produce a professional quality commercial and get it one air? Could this be a hint that the fix was in for cooking the books several days ago?

12. THAT ENTIRE ADMINISTRATION IS CONTROLLED BY A PATHOLOGICAL LIAR!!

Don't believe anything that comes out of that administration. I've said this time and again, this man is a liar! This disease has contaminated every core of our government:
the treasury, the federal reserve, the pentagon, the OMB, and office of the IG, the office of AG, the dept of labor to include the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), etc. No more whistle blowers, no more oversight. The fact that this administration is under the control of a pathological liar, a greedy, win-at-all-cost, president, facts that he himself has proven time and again, there is no reason to believe that the numbers are accurate. They may be highly fabricated to make trump look good, to help prevent congress from getting that additional money. Hell the numbers may have been inflated in the first place so that at the right time, the numbers can look good for trump. It's all about appearances and perception with this guy, the truth doesn't matter as long as he gets what he wants. we have to keep our mind on who he is and what he is about. He is a vehemently dishonest man who only exist to serve his own needs. Republican voters will also realize this when he screws them too!

13. Of course they have no more appetite

They stuffed their fat asses with untraceable no accountability of half a trillion dollars. Then stole small business loans. All this after the Ryan tax give away. All our money. They are full of cash, It still cooking books and playing the stock market game too. As Kennedy said, when will the greed stop? Never until GOP are abolished.
