Summary

The measure is in stark contrast to a much larger package that would include additional $1,200 direct payments being pushed by President Donald Trump and shows a divide not only between Democrats and Republicans — but inside GOP leadership. Democrats have gone on record saying they aren’t interested in a smaller-bore approach to virus relief.Last month, Democrats filibustered a GOP-drafted aid bill that did not include another round of direct payments to Americans, and recent talks on a larger deal between Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi haven’t made much progress. If Trump was able to get a second round of relief distributed as people are heading to the polls, it would certainly be something to brag about before the election.“A fly on the wall or wherever else it might land in the Oval Office tells me that the President only wants his name on a check to go out before Election Day and for the market to go up,” Pelosi said in a letter to her colleagues earlier this week.She defended her hardline position, claiming Democrats have more leverage than ever.
