White House, Senate strike deal on historic $2T coronavirus relief bill, but House support remains uncertain

White House and Senate leaders reached a historic deal shortly after midnight Wednesday on a massive $2 trillion coronavirus relief package for workers and businesses, although support in the House of Representatives remained uncertain as one member openly criticized the plan.

The bipartisan breakthrough in the Senate capped days of heated negotiations that had nearly been derailed by last-minute demands from House Democrats.

“Ladies and gentleman, we are done," White House legislative affairs director Eric Ueland announced as he left the office of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., near midnight. "We have a deal."

Ueland told reporters that "much of the work on bill text has been completed, and I’m hopeful over the next few hours we’ll finish what's left and we will circulate it early in the morning.”:snip:

Rep. Amash Signals He May Single-Handedly Delay Coronavirus Relief Bill[/url]

Mairead McArdle

March 25, 2020

Representative Justin Amash signaled Wednesday that he may delay the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package Senate leaders reached with the Trump administration hours earlier, calling the plan “a raw deal for the people.”

The Michigan independent, who left the Republican Party last year, suggested he may block unanimous consent should the House choose to use it for the coronavirus package, forcing a roll call vote on the emergency funding bill that would require lawmakers to return to Washington. Such a move would delay consideration in the lower chamber of the package, which was agreed to after five days of marathon negotiations between Senate leaders and the Trump administration.

* “This bipartisan deal is a raw deal for the people,” Amash wrote in a Wednesday morning tweet. “It does far too little for those who need the most help, while providing hundreds of billions in corporate welfare, massively growing government, inhibiting economic adaptation, and widening the gap between the rich and the poor.”

Democrats Just Obstructed The Emergency Relief AGAIN??! Pelosi Says She Hasn't Decided on it Yet. After holding up the emergency relief bill twice Democrats and Republicans in the Senate finally agreed on a bill that both sides were happy with.

The deal gives 4 months of guaranteed wages to furloughed workers and gives most Americans a check for $1,200.

Everything seemed to be going well until Nancy Pelosi stepped in. Instead of voting on the bill she held a "pro forma" session in the House. They were in for about one minute before leaving.

Pelosi says she isn't sure how she will handle the bill but one thing is for certain, Republicans negotiated with Democrats once again and they agreed so why are the Democrats in the House now holding things up?

America is hurting, our economy is tanking, businesses are closing and now Pelosi wants to "review" the bill that the Democrats themselves have negotiated??

Maybe this is a stall tactic meant to hurt America more? Maybe Democrats think they can hurt Trump's reelection chances in november by damaging the economy.

I don't know All I know is that if both sides, Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell, agreed there should be no reason that the Democrats are trying to obstruct yet again.
