Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Tuesday said she’s hopeful Congress can reach a deal a massive coronavirus relief package by day’s end, but warned that Republican “poison pills” could gum up the process and prompt House Democrats to move their own legislation.

Pelosi said Democrats remain insistent that a $500 billion allotment to help major industries must include greater oversight and transparency, and she hammered GOP leaders for their resistance to including billions of dollars for food stamps.

The article goes on to state the following:

If Senate and White House negotiators are able to iron out those differences, she said, the House could accept the Senate bill and likely pass it quickly by unanimous consent, allowing the House to remain in recess.

Pelosi threatened to call the House back to Washington to move forward with a 1,400-page proposal she released Monday night if she doesn’t approve of the Senate version.

Republicans have slammed Pelosi’s proposal, as it includes a multitude of non-coronavirus-related items, including “green new deal” measures, same-day voter registration, immigration deals, and even $35 million to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

President Trump blasted Pelosi in a blistering Twitter post Monday night.

“Republicans had a deal until Nancy Pelosi rode into town from her extended vacation. The Democrats want the Virus to win? They are asking for things that have nothing to do with our great workers or companies. They want Open Borders & Green New Deal. Republicans shouldn’t agree!” he wrote.
