Pelosi signals no coronavirus deal likely with White House

Source: Politico

Speaker Nancy Pelosi was highly pessimistic Thursday about the chances of clinching a coronavirus relief deal with the White House, leaving House Democrats on a path to approve their own stimulus package and head home to run for reelection.

Pelosi cast serious doubt on the likelihood of an agreement during a private call with House Democrats Thursday, stressing multiple times that Republicans don’t “share our values” on the need to provide trillions of dollars in health and economic relief to Americans impacted by the pandemic.

The California Democrat also outlined several key areas where Democrats and Republicans remained far apart, including a child tax credit, where she said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has refused to approve even one dollar in new spending while Democrats have sought tens of billions of dollars for the initiative. The two parties have also been at odds over additional aid for state and local governments — a Democratic push — and Republican demands for liability protections for businesses and schools.

Pelosi and Mnuchin spoke by phone for about 50 minutes Thursday afternoon, where they discussed "further clarifications on amounts and language," according to a Pelosi aide.

4. Wall Street, corporations,

farmers, and republican patrons all were fed trillion of dollars to keep them fat and happy. So as long as they continue to gorge themselves on the pork they received, they have absolutely no motivation whatsoever to pressure McTurtle & Company to provide any stimulus to help the unwashed masses that are struggling to survive.

5. I was hoping we'd agree even to a lousy deal

Then when we take over next year (I'm thinking we're gonna win a clean sweep of Congress and Presidency) we could sweeten the deal then

7. I'm guessing a lousy deal included vast

sums without accountability. Trump's favorite kind.

8. Yep, I see your point

I guess it is better to have no deal than looting the treasury.
Can't wait for Nov. 3
