Pelosi: Dems ready to meet halfway on relief bill volume

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (pictured) revealed on Wednesday that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and she would be willing to compromise with the Republicans on the volume of the coronavirus relief package, noting that a figure of $2 trillion would be acceptable for the Democrats.

"Leader Schumer & I stand ready to find common ground. We have proposed that we meet halfway. We have suggested that we would go down $1 trillion if they came up $1 trillion," Pelosi said.

She reiterated that the two sides are "miles apart" from reaching a deal, but also underlined that it is necessary for the talks to continue.
