Lawmakers at the White House are currently attempting to come to terms on the next coronavirus relief package.
The next round of legislation that is aimed at helping struggling Americans who have been affected by the global pandemic. Unfortunately, an agreement between respective lawmakers doesn't seem like it will come to fruition soon, or at least according to White House Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows as he said Sunday "I'm not optimistic that there will be a solution in the very near term."
Meadows goes onto say that a "stonewalling" approach has been taken on any new type of legislation that happens on Capitol Hill, but "Hopefully that will change in the coming days." So what is holding things up? This past Saturday, both sides of the negotiations said they had their most positive discussions yet, but what seems to be stopping the progress is an agreement on the $600 per week in extra federal unemployment benefits for Americans.
