Pelosi Says She Needs Mnuchin Responses to Resume Aid Talks

Source: Bloomberg

(Bloomberg) -- U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in a letter Thursday that she’s still awaiting responses on a raft of outstanding issues blocking a stimulus deal, while President Donald Trump accused her of stalling before the election.

Pelosi listed seven major areas of disagreement in her letter: a national virus testing-and-tracing program; funding for state and local governments; school safety measures; child-care funding; tax credits for working families; unemployment insurance; and workplace protections and liability issues.

“Your responses are critical for our negotiations to continue,” Pelosi wrote. She and Mnuchin last spoke Monday, when they were unable to resolve what’s become a three-month impasse over a Covid-19 relief plan.

Trump reiterated his call for a package even bigger than the $2.4 trillion favored by the speaker. “But Nancy Pelosi does not want to do it,” he said in a podcast with Jon Taffer. Trump said he’ll push for “a very big package as soon as the election’s over.”

2. he will be too busy doing a scorched earth campaign

on the federal government to bother with legislation.

Not that he has actually bothered with legislation at all since he got elected in 2016, other than his awful tax cuts.

4. Honestly, I am in awe of her patience, especially

Considering that she could easily retire to a pleasant life in SSN Francisco with a vacation house in Hawaii. Thank you, Speaker Pelosi.

7. It's clear that the American people are

being held hostage for their votes. Despicable!

Thank you Madame Speaker, for keeping the truth alive.

Thanks, Yo_Mama_Been_Loggin, for sharing this.
