House's McCarthy Doesn't Expect Covid-19 Aid Deal Before Election

Thursday, 15 October 2020 12:25 PM

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy said Thursday he does not expect agreement on a fresh coronavirus relief package before Election Day on Nov. 3 as long as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is involved in negotiations, saying she is the "one stumbling block" to a deal getting done.

At a news conference, McCarthy also sidestepped a question about President Donald Trump's willingness expressed earlier Thursday to go higher than $1.8 trillion on a coronavirus aid package. McCarthy said $1.8 trillion was "a very big deal," but added: "It doesn't matter what our answer would be, because the Speaker has denied anything from moving."
