On Tuesday, Republicans and Democrats stopped negotiating on a stimulus bill for coronavirus relief. But today it’s Wednesday in Washington! A whole new day, with new realities.
WHAT’S HAPPENING RIGHT NOW?
On Tuesday, President Trump ordered aides to cease negotiations with Democrats on the stimulus bill until after the election, effectively killing any chances of you receiving another stimulus check from the IRS this year.
Shortly thereafter, stocks tanked, and on Tuesday night, Trump seemed to reverse course on Twitter, telling Congress to “IMMEDIATELY Approve” $160 billion in aid to small businesses and airlines.
