As US futures sink into the red on Thursday, Politico brings us the latest in the tedious back-and-forth that has become the stimulus talks, something that all Americans, by now, understand won’t be resolved until the winner of the election has been decided.

In the letter, first published by Politico, Pelosi lists all the areas that remain unresolved, and accused the administration of failing to respondwith promised “compromise” language regarding a “science-based strategy for testing, tracing, and treatment that is needed to crush the virus, as well as language on vaccines, the provider fund and ACA coverage for unemployed workers.

“…as the coronavirus surges and the stock market plummets, we are still awaiting the Trump Administration’s promised responses on multiple items of critical importance.”

Other areas of conflict include: State and local, safe schools, child care, tax credits for working families, unemployment insurance, OSHA and liability-related issues. Pelosi added that Trump’s promise of striking a deal after the election only matters if he can get Mitch McConnell to take his hand off the “pause” button.
