As the current session of Congress winds down for this year, there have been no negotiations on a new pandemic economic relief plan since the election.
South Dakota Senator John Thune says Republicans are ready to move on another round of economic stimulus:
OC……to fight the virus :28
Thune says the relief package is focused on those people and groups who are facing other losses:
OC……from the virus. :27
Thune says nothing is being passed because Democrats are not willing to agree on the financial limits in a new stimulus plan:
OC……are not :22
Republicans are talking about five hundred billion dollars in additional relief while Democrats have been aiming for a more expensive plan costing about one point two trillion dollars.
