The GDP will be in the toilet, and the only solution is a massive INDIVIDUAL stimulus. Economists are pulling out their hair over the congressional blockade to any stimulus.

Just the Senate refusing to even discuss it. I am sure if they would sit down, there would be some compromises and not everything would be in the final bill, but Moscow Mitch isn't interested.

Fully aware that the House is doing it's part, but unless they can get the WH and MoscowMitch to go along, it will not get any better. IMHO, Pelosi takes half-a-loaf right now, then in January revisits for an entire stimulus package. i

following the election next week he will have less than zero reason to even do that and just dump it on the Democrats, then complain about the deficit spending and the debt which likely has been the plan all along.

There will be in my opinion no stimulus package until after the new year.
