COVID Relief Deal Remains Elusive

“We’re making progress,” Speaker Pelosi said Sunday.

The prospects for another coronavirus relief deal in Congress before the November elections remains elusive. Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Mnuchin continue to differ regarding how much money to funnel into the pandemic-ravaged economy.

They spoke together over the phone multiple times last week and had face-to-face meetings on Wednesday as well as over the weekend, but no agreement for a second round of stimulus checks for American workers and families is in sight. They made another hour-long failed attempt on Monday with plans to speak again Tuesday.

President Trump has largely stayed out of the negotiations but is pushing for an agreement in the coming days.

Although both sides agree that another bill is necessary to help the economic recovery, they disagree over the size and scope of it.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Speaker Pelosi and Secretary Mnuchin to keep the focus of the proposed aid on coronavirus-related items.
  • That negotiations between the parties will result in an agreement sooner rather than later.
