Congressional Democrats Being Pressured to Accept Smaller COVID Stimulus Deal

Pelosi’s obstinance has been horrid.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hasn’t been a terribly effective negotiator over the course of the last several months, having been bested by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell time and again as it pertains to another round of COVID-19 stimulus.

Former Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers Austan Goolsbee, who advised the Obama administration, told CNN that he feels something needs to be done soon in order to prevent a potential double-dip recession.

“There are a lot of people really hurting in the country, I hope that they can agree on something soon,” Goolsbee, who was also chief adviser for the Economic Recovery Advisory Board established during Obama’s presidency, said.

Goolsbee would go on to intimate that the economy needs “immediate” relief, again imploring Pelosi and her fellow Democrats to consider anything that could provide assistance to our nation.
