The Senate will stop holding votes until Sept. 8, but its members will stay on 24-hour notice to hash out a possible coronavirus deal, according to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday she received a call from Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin who said the White House is "not budging from their position concerning the size and scope of a legislative package."

“Democrats have compromised. Repeatedly, we have made clear to the Administration that we are willing to come down $1 trillion if they will come up $1 trillion," Pelosi said, in a statement.


President Donald Trump hinted during a Fox Business interview on Thursday that he may block a stimulus bill that contains funding for the U.S. Postal Service, which Democratic are pushing for.

"If the Speaker of the House and Minority Leader of the Senate decide to finally let another rescue package move forward for workers and for families, it would take bipartisan consent to meet for legislative business sooner than scheduled," McConnell said on the Senate floor.

McConnell added, "The American people need more help. The coronavirus is not finished with our country, so Congress cannot be finished helping our people."
