“I think it`s the last bite on the apple,” Rep said. Anthony Gonzalez (R-Ohio), a member of the Solver caucus. “In the second quarter [2021], the pandemic is essentially over, most likely. And if there`s an idea that we`re going to do it from time to time, we`ll do another one at the end of January or February, I think it`s a dream, personally.¬†White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany did not say whether Trump would refuse to sign a stimulus package that did not contain a second check, but said Tuesday that Trump “would really like to see these stimulus packages register.” “This emergency bill is an important first step,” House of Representatives spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi said in a statement Sunday afternoon. “In 31 days, when Joe Biden arrives at the White House, there will be more help en route.” “I think $900 billion would do a lot more good right now than $2 trillion in March,” said Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), a GOP executive. “This is an important time to get up when we can.” The multi-party agreement includes approximately $288 billion in financing for small businesses, including through the Paycheck Protection Program and other assistance. In addition, $45 billion is planned for transportation agencies, $82 billion for education, $26 billion for food aid and $16 billion for health care, including to assist in the testing and tracing of coronaviruses and the distribution of vaccines. The White House has largely abandoned its aggressive push for economic recovery since Trump lost the November 3 presidential election.

It is also unclear whether Biden will push Democrats to accept a smaller package, although some of his economic advisers have insisted that a stimulus package be passed quickly, even though it is smaller than Democrats prefer. A bipartisan group of lawmakers has been working for weeks on a $908 billion package of coronavirus assistance, much of which has been agreed upon.

Lawmakers said they hoped to reach an agreement in the coming days and would translate it into legislation. Congressional leaders participated in the discussions, but could play a bigger role in the coming days. “Later, more will be needed, but now immediate help is needed,” she said. “That`s what senators are talking about. We can`t wait.¬†“I`m not happy with many of these numbers,” he said.

“But that`s what this is about in this world of the U.S. Congress: they come together, ready to sit and listen on the other side and, if necessary, compromise.” First, the stimulus package should go through the House of Representatives and the Senate. If the two chambers are now working together on an agreement, there is a good chance that this will happen. Trump would have to sign the bailout law. Subsequently, it is likely that the aid would expire within one or two weeks, with some groups eligible for financial assistance before the end of 2020. A second economic balance sheet is expected to be part of the 2020 Final Economic Act. Here`s what we know so far. While Democratic and Republican lawmakers have expressed renewed optimism about securing a coronavirus aid deal, the current roundtable excludes a second round of fiscal stimulus.
