The stalemate in Washington over the next coronavirus stimulus package is likely to dominate the Sunday Show talk show circuit this weekend as the provisions set by the March CARES Act have expired.
Earlier this month, a federal moratorium on evictions and a $600 per week federal enhancement on unemployment benefits expired as parts of the country continue to shutter and the coronavirus cases surge in various states.
The application window for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), which was created as part of the CARES Act, is closing at the end of the day Saturday, adding yet another level of pressure.
Lawmakers are most divided on how much to spend on the package, with Democrats presenting a $3 trillion proposal compared to the GOP's $1 trillion proposal, which some Republican lawmakers argue is too much as well.
