House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said another $ 1 trillion was needed, outside of the $ 2.2 trillion effort that had just been passed. He wants one round of direct payments to America and more money for companies to continue to make payroll. Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell said in recent days that health care must be top of the list, signaling his intention to start working with the new law. “We will take care of our people,” Trump said Monday at his daily White House briefing. “It’s not their fault.” This is a rare sign of the consensus that emerged when Washington responded to a public health emergency and the severe economic downturn that ravaged society nationally, a crisis equivalent to war effort or the Great Depression.
