McConnell Says Another Stimulus Bill is Likely, Just Not Nancy Pelosi’s

Meanwhile, Americans wait and worry.

As Americans the nation over struggle to make ends meet while continuing to practice good social distancing, it is imperative that our elected officials step up to help.

Unfortunately, as with almost anything in American politics these days, there is no way to get everyone on the same page – especially the hotly public servants on Capitol Hill who seem far more interested in boosting their own personal portfolio than the wellbeing of their constituents.

Such is the case again this week, as Mitch McConnell and Nancy Pelosi continue to bicker over the next round of coronavirus relief.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told “Special Report with Bret Baier” Thursday that another coronavirus stimulus bill is likely, but dismissed House Democrats’ latest $3 trillion proposal as “unsalvageable.”

“The president and Senate Republicans are going to be in the same place. We will let you know when we think the time is right to begin to move again,” McConnell said. “I think there’s a high likelihood we’ll do another bill.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi acknowledged Thursday that the so-called HEROES Act faces long odds of becoming law, but suggested the massive bill could be a starting point for negotiations with the White House and Senate.

“We’re putting our offer on the table, we’re open to negotiation,” Pelosi said. The House is set to vote on the measure Friday.

The Senate Majority Leader did not feel the same way:

When Baier asked McConnell why he would not treat the Democratic proposal as a starting point for negotiation, the Kentuckian described it as a “liberal wish list” and “a parade of absurdities that can hardly be taken seriously.”

All we know is that relief will need to come rather soon, or else the debate over the still-standing “lockdowns” will take a far more serious turn.
