Legislation introduced Monday by House Democrats to keep the federal government funded through Dec. 11 quickly ran into opposition from Senate Republicans, raising the odds of a shutdown at the end of the month just weeks before the election.

Government funding is slated to run out on Sept. 30, leaving just nine days for both parties to avoid a damaging shutdown at a time when tensions are already spiking over Senate GOP plans to quickly fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and stalled negotiations over a coronavirus relief bill.

Mnuchin: 'The president and I believe we should do more stimulus' | TheHill

President Trump created the best economy in American history once, and he is doing it again!

The first step toward a possible compromise on a second round of federal stimulus money is in the works. But there’s still a ways to go before the money starts flowing to the unemployed.

A conversation Thursday between Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows produced no results, with Pelosi vowing to hold fast to the $2 trillion level. Republicans previously said they wanted the stimulus to be no more than $1 trillion, and cited loads of pork in the Dems proposal.
