Schumer, Pelosi Discuss Emergency Negotiations on COVID Relief Bill

Schumer: ‘We’re not close yet, but it was a productive discussion’


SCHUMER: “Well, this was the longest meeting we had and it was more productive than the other meetings. There are many issues that are still very much outstanding, we’re apart, but we had a serious discussion and went down piece by piece and saw where each side is at. The staffs will be meeting over the weekend, tomorrow, to go through some of the things we went through, and we will meet again on Monday. We’re not close yet, but it was a productive discussion. Now, each side knows where they’re at and we are going to work very hard to come to an agreement that meets the needs of the moment. We still believe, and we discussed this with them, that this is one of the greatest problems America faces and we need to meet those needs in a very, very serious way. That just saying we’ll do halfway doesn’t work when people need homes and need Jobs and need housing, and need help.”
