    I recall several presidential elections ago, an elementary school teacher wrote a newspaper column about a mock election he held in his class. Two students were nominated by their classmates, and then they campaigned for their votes. Who won the election? One of the students presented an agenda and reasonably argued for the merits of that agenda. The other student promised ice cream for everyone who voted for her. She won. It is an unusual politician who has the power and authority to give voters ice cream but won't use that power to buy votes. This is particularly true when...

    4:20 PM ET 10/20/20 | Briefing.com The S&P 500 gained 0.5% on Tuesday, although it was up as much as 1.5% ahead of a stimulus meeting between House Speaker Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Mnuchin. The Nasdaq Composite increased 0.3%, the Dow Jones Industrial Average increased 0.4%, and the Russell 2000 increased 0.3%. Yesterday reports suggested a stimulus deal wasn't looking imminent, but comments from the House Speaker after Monday's close provided the market hope that both sides would get something done soon. Senate Majority Leader McConnell said he would bring a presidentially supported bill to the floor if it passes...

    President Donald Trump on Tuesday pushed for a comprehensive COVID-19 relief package, saying he would accept a deal worth more than $2.2 trillion despite opposition to large spending measures among his fellow Republicans in the U.S. Senate. “I want to do it even bigger than the Democrats,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News, as talks between House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin approached a Tuesday deadline for reaching a bipartisan deal that could pass Congress before Election Day on Nov. 3. The White House has proposed $1.8 trillion in coronavirus relief, while Pelosi...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday gave the White House 48 hours to reach a deal on a new coronavirus stimulus plan — saying otherwise Congress will not be able to pass the relief before the November election. “The 48 only relates to if we want to get it done before the election — which we do,” Pelosi said on ABC News’ “This Week.” “But we’re saying to them we have to freeze the design on some of these things, are we going with it or not, and what is the language.”

    VIDEO If anybody had any doubt about Nancy Pelosi going Full Mental Jacket over allowing President Trump putting his signature to new stimulus checks before the election, her interview with Wolf Blitzer in which she channeled Captain Queeg should convince even many Democrats of her unfitness for the office of House Speaker. As you can see in this video, even those not necessarily big Trump supporters but who are big on the nuts and bolts of the stimulus package are now flat out blaming her for holding up the bill.

    Nancy Pelosi slammed CNN'S Wolf Blitzer as a 'Republican apologist' in a fiery meltdown on Tuesday evening. 'I don't know why you're always an apologist — and many of your colleagues, apologists for the Republican position,' Pelosi responded as Blitzer mentioned Khanna's comments on the bill. 'Ro Khanna, that's nice. That isn't what we're going to do. And nobody's waiting until February.' She said she could not accept the Republican deal as it is, because child tax credits and earned income credits were 'eliminated'. 'They minimize the need for childcare, which is the threshold with which people, mothers and fathers,...

    What makes Trump look worse before the election: trying to get a deal with no success, or pointing out that the other side doesn’t want a deal for political reasons and pulling out of talks? President Trump announced on Twitter that he was shutting down stimulus talks with Democrats until after the election because they were “not negotiating in good faith.” “Pelosi is asking for $2.4 Trillion Dollars to bailout poorly run, high crime, Democrat States, money that is in no way related to COVID-19,” wrote Trump.The president continued: “Immediately after I win, we will pass a major Stimulus Bill...

    A stimulus package proposed by Democrats in the House of Representatives includes a number of items that will benefit illegal immigrants -- including an expansion of stimulus checks and protections from deportations for illegal immigrants in certain “essential” jobs. The $2.2 trillion bill includes language that allows some illegal immigrants -- who are “engaged in essential critical infrastructure labor or services in the United States” -- to be placed into “a period of deferred action” and authorized to work if they meet certain conditions. It also grants protections to those employers who hire those undocumented immigrants, ordering that “the hiring,...
  • Congress’s Covid Income Redistribution. State income figures show the Cares Act helped blue states far more than red.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | September 28, 2020 | WSJ Editorial Board
    Speaker Nancy Pelosi said this weekend that House Democrats plan to pass a new $2.4 trillion relief bill “that puts money in people’s pockets.” So it’s worth highlighting how the $2.2 trillion Cares Act that passed in March has disproportionately helped blue states that imposed stricter coronavirus lockdowns and have been slower to recover economically. The Bureau of Economic Analysis on Thursday published its second-quarter state personal income report, and the data show how lockdowns affected earnings and government income transfers. Personal incomes last quarter grew a whopping 34.8% as transfer receipts (854%) more than offset lower earnings (minus-27.5%). But...

    Steve Mnuchin and the GOP are said to be open to talks on the Democrats' new $2.2trillion COVID package that includes a second round of $1,200 stimulus checks, $600 in extra unemployment and $225billion for schools. The scaled back, last ditch proposal represents a cutback from a $3.4 billion bill that passed the House in May, but remains well above what Senate Republicans had been willing to accept. Republicans have endorsed staying in the $650 billion to $1 trillion range. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told her fellow Democrats Monday that the proposal will 'protect lives, livelihoods, and the life of...

    Andrew Yang has a message for all of the lawmakers who have still not been able to agree on another stimulus package. Yang, who recently campaigned to become the Democratic nominee for the presidency, urged politicians to pass an economic relief bill as "people are hurting" amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Lawmakers have been trying to agree on a stimulus package over the last several months. Still, Democrats and Republicans disagree on many aspects of the next bill, including the total price point.
