Pelosi says House will draft its own coronavirus funding bill

Source: The Hill

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said on Sunday that House Democrats would draft their own coronavirus stimulus bill after all sides failed to reach a deal on a massive proposal being negotiated in the Senate.

“We’ll be introducing our own bill and hopefully it will be compatible with what they discuss on the Senate side,” Pelosi said as she left a short meeting in the Capitol with the leaders of both parties negotiating the stimulus package.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has scheduled a procedural vote for 3 p.m. on Sunday to jumpstart the process, and has vowed a second vote on the massive proposal Monday.


Yet Pelosi signaled the sides remain far apart, indicating that McConnell's timeline might be overly ambitious, at least as it pertains to winning bipartisan support.

"I don't know about Monday, but we're still talking," she said. "That's on the Senate side now because that's their deadline for a vote."

1. None of it should go to any corporation rather 60% to 80% of it should go to American citizens

that earn below 60k a year and the rest should be put towards beefing up and repairing our infrastructure like the interstate road system.

7. I know but unfortunately there does need to be a cutoff point.

On the other hand that money still will help a lot of people there.

4. Spending bills are supposed to originate in the House, anyway.

Speaker Pelosi is the leader here, not Mitch.
