House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer on Monday re-upped a list of demands that Democrats want to see in the next round of coronavirus legislation, indicating that Congress is still far apart on coalescing around another bill amid the pandemic.
“We have real problems facing this country, and it’s time for the Republicans to quit the political posturing by proposing bills they know will not pass either chamber and get serious and work with us towards a solution,” Mrs. Pelosi, California Democrat, and Mr. Schumer, New York Democrat, said in a joint statement.
Senate Democrats last week blocked quick action on a $250 billion boost for a popular $350 billion program that provides loans to small businesses to help them keep workers on their payroll amid the epidemic.
