In this video, Dr. Chhoda explores the House Problems Solvers Caucus, which has quietly been working on a plan that has attracted some interest from both sides of the aisle. The group — co-chaired by Reps. JOSH GOTTHEIMER (D-N.J.) and TOM REED (R-N.Y.) — has also been in touch with the White House.
Dr. Chhoda also explores the three paths forward for the Democrats. All these events are taking place with the looming prospect of a government shutdown, which both sides are keen to avoid.
Although the continuing resolution (CR) is far from figured out, too. Republicans are already complaining that Democrats want a “clean” bill — a simple extension of funding without extraneous policies — but are privately pushing for some stimulus relief in the bill. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been clear: “Clean means clean” (no mingling CR with stimulus talks)
