Negotiations between Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on a coronavirus stimulus package appear to be making progress, with both parties expecting to reach agreement on a final package Tuesday.
Mnuchin called President Donald Trump during the negotiations, updating him on the progress the parties were making. The two men explained to Hill reporters that they expect a formal agreement on the stimulus package Tuesday morning, and a vote on the proposal later in the day.
The stimulus package is expected to entail cash payments of $1,200 for every American to inject resources into the economy. Some have likened the basic income payments as ‘TrumpBux.’
Small businesses will be provided with $350 billion in loans that aren’t expected to be paid back, allowing them to stay open and continue meeting payroll in a time where everyday commerce and life is severely disrupted. The final stimulus package largely seems to resemble the plan Mitch McConnell brought up.
The stimulus in total will place more than $2 trillion into the hands of various businesses and middle-class Americans. The TrumpBux proposal is means-tested, with Americans who reported more than $100,000 in income on their 2018 tax return not receiving the money.
Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democrats tanked the original relief package on Sunday, citing a desire to introduce their own set of pet projects into the package that are totally unrelated to the economic damage caused by the coronavirus.
The prospect of a deal that passes Congress appears likely. But Republican negotiators can’t ignore the possibility of childish tricks from Democrats, who could aim to pose as willing negotiators before pulling out the rug and making a lavish new set of demands for their preference for the stimulus package.
If Schumer proves to be perfidious on his commitment towards a stimulus package, his party will reckon with the prospect of holding up desperate required TrumpBux and economic relief for small business in pursuit of their own vain political aims.
Pelosi May Try to Impeach President Trump AGAIN For Nominating a SCOTUS Judge Before Election
Turning impeachment into a partisan joke.
Nancy Pelosi refused to rule out trying to impeach President Donald Trump AGAIN if he nominates a Supreme Court justice to replace the recently deceased Ruth Bader Ginsberg before the November election.
Pelosi was speaking to corporate news operative George Stephanopoulos on Sunday.

“Well, we have our options… We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now.” Pelosi was speaking about the possibility of impeaching Attorney General Bill Barr as well as Trump, who has increasingly become a source of extreme frustration for D.C. liberals who desire a Justice Department beholden to their policy priorities.
President Trump has confirmed that he plans on nominating a Justice to fill the vacancy, revealing he’s planning on selecting a woman for the court seat at a North Carolina rally over the weekend.
If Trump nominates a justice who is confirmed and goes on to secure a second term in the November presidential election, a hypothetical second impeachment proceeding could set up a truly hilarious scenario. Democrats would be trying to impeach a President who just secured victory in a democratic election, truly going above and beyond in trying to override the decision of the people.
Perhaps the impeachment powers of the House of Representatives are destined to become merely another partisan, political trick utilized by the Democratic Party against any Republican President. This could basically turn the American political system into a de facto parliamentary system in which the opposition party seeks to impeach the head of state on a routine, political basis.
