In this video, Dr. Chhoda let’s rip some ‘dry New York humor’ about an arm wrestling competition between President Trump and Speaker Pelosi, as he explores:
1. WHERE THINGS STAND NOW
2. WHAT THE HOUSE CAN ACTUALLY DO RIGHT NOW
3. THE NEXT BIG DEADLINE COMING UP
According to the Wall Street Journal:
“Stimulus Stalemate Leaves Vulnerable Lawmakers Empty-Handed”
Senators and House members in tough races had hoped to pass another round of stimulus relief before heading home for recess
Because of the gridlock, Mr. Trump took executive action to give Americans more unemployment relief and suspend the collection of payroll taxes. Corry Bliss, who is advising several Republicans on campaigns, called it a “smart move” because it gives GOP candidates something clear to point to and allows them to blame Democrats for not coming to the table.
Rep. John Yarmuth (D., Ky.) said Democrats should be making more targeted offers to Republicans to try to reach an agreement, rather than setting an overall price tag at $2 trillion.
“I don’t think we’re losing the messaging, but I don’t think we’re winning it, either. I think most people are just frustrated with all of us at this point,” he said.
WHAT THE HOUSE CAN ACTUALLY DO RIGHT NOW
There is a lot the House can actually do
They’re in recess when they should be holding hearings, issuing subpoenas and filing emergency lawsuits.
THE NEXT BIG DEADLINE COMING UP
The upcoming Government funding deadline sept 30. That’s the big leverage point for both parties.
