Republican rail against Trump

After a full day of negotiations, the White House and Senate Republicans are no closer to an agreement on the next stimulus bill. During a closed-door lunch, some Republicans railed against President Donald Trump’s desire for a payroll tax cut, and it seems other party members are against the idea of another stimulus bill altogether. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says Republicans will still release their proposal this week, and it will likely include $105 billion in funding to help reopen schools across the country, as well as another round of direct payments to Americans. But he’ll have opposition in his own ranks. Sen. Ted Cruz was clear on where he stands on it: “As it’s written right now, I’m not only a no, I’m a hell no.” A reminder: There’s less than three weeks to get a deal done before the August recess, and before current unemployment enhancements run out
