Pelosi, Mnuchin agree on plan to avoid government shutdown

Must be an election year.

[www.aol.com]

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Trump administration have informally agreed to keep a stopgap government-wide funding bill — needed to avert a shutdown at the end of this month — free of controversy or conflict.

The accord is aimed at keeping any possibility of a government shutdown off the table despite ongoing battles over COVID-19 relief legislation, while sidestepping the potential for other shutdown drama in the run-up to the November election.

That's according to Democratic and GOP aides on Capitol Hill who have been briefed on a Tuesday conversation between Pelosi, D-Calif., and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. They required anonymity to characterize an exchange they were informed of but not directly party to.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Cheeto can still change his mind, however.

Imagine if he doesn’t like what they come up with, threatens veto, and Republicans in Congress decide NOT to blink, finally ... he’d sooner sign it than be over ridden (which would be absolutely glorious.)
