Hopes for a stimulus deal before Election Day seem dim

  • As multiple GOP aides told CNN on Thursday, House committees might be reaching to lay out their priorities, but no one is actually sitting in a room or getting on the phone and hashing out the finer points of this bill right now.
  • Still, if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was going to have a hard time getting 13 Republican votes -- the bare minimum needed if Democrats in the chamber united behind a plan -- ahead of the election when the electoral futures of his members might be boosted by a deal, he is likely going to have an impossible time getting 13 after an election.
  • Pelosi had been telling Mnuchin she wanted a vote ahead of the election, but that started to change Thursday afternoon.

Stimulus negotiations: House Democrats aren't ruling out a vote but obstacles remain

  • One aide familiar with the discussions told CNN that if a deal was reached, the expectation is that "it would come to the floor ASAP" for a vote in the Democratically controlled House.
  • An overall agreement is still not finished and it may not be reached in time for Election Day. The deal would have to be finished by the weekend in order to get a vote on the floor next week and Pelosi said Thursday that major issues remain outstanding from unemployment insurance to liability protections.
  • McConnell said earlier this week he would consider any bill agreed to between Pelosi and Mnuchin that has the President's support, but aides familiar say it's unlikely McConnell would bring anything to the floor ahead of Election Day, especially if few Republicans in the House back the proposal.

GOP pushes back on White House's stimulus talks with Pelosi, signaling final action could slip until after elections

  • At a closed-door lunch, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows fended off serious concerns raised by GOP senators over the Trump administration's efforts to finalize a roughly $2 trillion package before the elections, even as Pelosi reported progress in her negotiations with the Trump administration on Wednesday.
  • Senate Republicans, who failed to advance their own $500 billion plan Wednesday over Democratic opposition, have given Meadows and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin an earful over the last two weeks about the frantic push to reach a deal that the GOP argues is far too expensive.
  • The Kentucky Republican, who told his colleagues this week that he had urged the White House not to cut a major preelection deal, has not yet said when he plans to close the chamber's doors so senators can return home to campaign before November 3.

Stimulus talks come down to a Trump loyalty litmus test

  • Washington (CNN) - If House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is successful in getting Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and the White House to sign off on a nearly $2 trillion stimulus proposal and it gets drafted before the election, she'll force Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to make a wrenching decision.
  • He'll have to decide if he's willing to hold a vote ahead of the election at a time when putting anything in the ballpark of $2 trillion is going to fracture the GOP and force members to say no to something that could benefit their constituents and buoy President Donald Trump -- even if the price tag is far more than they are comfortable with.
  • It's why McConnell said privately Tuesday during the GOP lunch what he has been signaling for months: he doesn't want Trump to cut this huge deal right now before the election and he has made it clear to the White House how he feels.

McConnell casts doubt on massive pre-election stimulus deal

  • At a closed-door lunch on Tuesday, McConnell indicated that the deal was unlikely to get a vote in his chamber before Election Day, according to multiple sources, and he said he warned the White House against getting behind such a proposal before November 3 that would badly divide Senate Republicans.
  • Most of the Republican senators are pushing back over the size of a deal and aren't comfortable with anything in the neighborhood of $1.8 trillion to $2 trillion, which is similar to the price tag the White House offered Pelosi earlier this month.
  • During an interview with Fox News on Tuesday, Trump repeated that he wants a "bigger" stimulus package than even Democrats are proposing — despite Senate Republicans saying they doubt Pelosi and Mnuchin can reach a deal that they'd support.
