WH Not Hopeful About New Stimulus Bill

(NewsReady.com) – On August 6, negotiations over a new coronavirus stimulus bill stalled, and the Senate left Washington, DC, for their annual recess. The House had already gone home. Now, just a couple of weeks later, the White House is reaching out to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to resume talks to help the American people.

In an interview with POLITICO, White House Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, said his team reached out to Pelosi to get the negotiations back on track. He went on to say he doesn’t “anticipate” the speaker is going to call him back, and believes she won’t start negotiating again until late September.

CNBC reported Republicans may introduce a skinny bill to fund unemployment, small business loans, schools, and vaccine development.

Funding those four programs would be incredibly helpful in getting much-needed aid to the American people. The economy is recovering slowly, but millions are still out of work and they need Pelosi and her pals to do their jobs.
