Early Wednesday morning, news broke that the White House and the Senate has reached a deal on a $2 trillion stimulus package to deal with the coronavirus pandemic. Earlier, President Trump said he’d like to see the country open for business by Easter — April 12. But apparently, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi doesn’t seem to approve of the president’s idea, telling CNN’s Dana Bash she simply doesn’t care what the president wants to see done.
“Well, even beyond Twitter, the President of the United States is signaling that he could open it up,” Bash told her.
“What is your opinion on that?” she asked the Speaker.
“I don’t care! I don’t care! I don’t care!” Pelosi said, rather forcefully. “It is not scientific based — he’s notion mongering,” she added.
“Notion mongering?” What the heck is that?
Who knows. At any rate, here’s the video, as posted to Twitter:

The Fox report adds:
“Democrats are finally taking ‘yes’ for an answer,” McConnell said in his remarks on the Senate floor early Wednesday morning. “Help is on the way.”
“After days of intense discussions, the Senate has reached a bipartisan agreement on a historic relief package for this pandemic,” he continued. “It will rush new resources onto the front lines of our nation’s health care fight. And it will inject trillions of dollars of cash into the economy as fast as possible to help Americans workers, families, small businesses and industries make it through this disruption and emerge on the other side ready to soar.”

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who was smiling after McConnell left the floor, told reporters: “This is a very important bipartisan piece of legislation that is going to be very important to help American workers, American business and people across America. So, we couldn’t be more pleased. I’ve spoken to the president, many times today, and he’s very pleased with this legislation, and the impact that this is going to have.”
Concerning the House, Mnuchin remarked, “I can’t speak for the Speaker. I hope she takes it up and she passes as-is. We need, we need this to get working for the American people. And, again, there are a lot of compromises. It’s terrific bill, and it was a great accomplishment on everyone.”
No thanks to Pelosi, by the way.
