White
House and Senate leaders reached a historic deal shortly after
midnight Wednesday on a massive $2 trillion coronavirus relief
package for workers and businesses, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
offered something of a tepid endorsement of the agreement after
previously pushing for her own legislation. The bipartisan
breakthrough in the Senate capped days of heated negotiations that
had nearly been derailed by last-minute demands from House Democrats.
“Ladies and gentleman, we are done,” White House legislative
affairs director Eric Ueland announced as he left the office of
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., near midnight. “We
have a deal.” Ueland told reporters that “much of the work
on bill text has been completed, and I’m hopeful over the next few
hours we’ll finish what’s left and we will circulate it early in
the morning.” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said
the bill amounts to “unemployment compensation on steroids,”
and that Americans who have been laid off will have their missed
salary remunerated. The package will enable companies to stay afloat
and immediately bring back those employees when things are safe‬,
Schumer said.
