Negotiations on the latest U.S. stimulus package are set to continue, with only nine days left before many of the current support mechanisms expire.
Senate Leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday that he would propose a new round of direct payments to those below a certain earnings threshold, similar to the $1,200 checks issued earlier in the year. However, the $1 trillion price tag mooted by Republicans is far from the $3 trillion package being prepared by House Democrats.
In addition to sparring with the Dems, it isn’t clear whether Senate Republicans are in agreement with President Trump’s desire to see a payroll tax cut included in the bill.
