    House postpones stimulus vote after Pelosi, Mnuchin meeting

    The Treasury Secretary and Speaker of the House couldn't reach an agreement, although they said they're making progress. So maybe it might pass, although McConnell is against it, so it may not get through the Senate.

    Maybe, although it may also depend on which party controls the Senate.

    McConnell seems to very much work for the President right now.

    It's interesting because now the gap is about $0.6 trillion, the difference between the White House proposal of 1.6 vs. the House package of 2.2 trillion.

    That's a lot of money.

    The map in the article was interesting, showing which states have already run out of money earmarked by the President's executive order back in August which extended unemployment benefits.

    Most states are already out of funds, including my own.
