Pelosi condemns GOP's stance on relief

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (pictured) criticized the Republicans on Thursday for their supposed unwillingness to work together with the Democrats to pass an additional coronavirus relief package.

"The GOP gave a $150 billion tax giveaway to the wealthiest in America, but now claim we cannot afford to provide expanded benefits for the unemployed. The GOP needs to get serious & work with Democrats to come to an agreement that helps working families," the Democratic leader tweeted.

Earlier today, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused a potential compromise on measures that would be higher than $500 billion, claiming that that "highly targetted" amount would be the "best way to go."
