Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “GOP Pitches Covid Stimulus One-Third the Size of Biden’s $1.9 Trillion Plan” – below is their description.
President Joe Biden and congressional Democrats signaled they’re intent on a large pandemic relief bill, potentially without Republican support, even after a White House meeting with GOP senators on Monday that both sides described as productive.
While the 10 senators who participated described the meeting as “excellent” with “a very productive exchange of views,” in a joint statement, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Biden had emphasized that Congress had to act urgently and “boldly” and had pointed out many areas of disagreement with the Republicans.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer meanwhile introduced a budget resolution on Monday, the first step required to use a procedure called “budget reconciliation” that would allow much of Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus to pass the Senate with only 51 votes.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
