On Thursday, August 27, 2020, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi had a 25-minute phone call with White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to discuss the stimulus package. This is the first discussion between Democrats and Republicans on the stimulus package since August 7, 2020. Republicans proposed the HEALS Act, a $1 trillion stimulus package for stimulus package 2 while Democrats postposed the HEROES Act, a $3.4 trillion stimulus bill for stimulus package 2. Pelosi wants to meet in the middle, but Republicans say they’re concerned about total stimulus spending already exceeding several trillion dollars. Now, Republican party is willing to increase the budget to $1.3 trillion while Democratic party is now willing to decrease the budget to $2.2 trillion. More will be reported after Congress resume session after their vacation.

I've worked professionally in applied math, engineering, medical research, and as a university math professor in IL and FL for about 20 years. My husband and I loved Disney and moved down to Central Florida initially as snowbirds. But we've come to love the warmth and friendly people offered by this community and decided to move down to Windermere, FL full time in 2006. I am now spending time sharing information/ knowledge online, promoting understanding of math and solar energy (via http://www.sunisthefuture.net ), and developing Windermere Sun (http://www.WindermereSun.com) as an online publication, sharing and promoting Community ABC's (Activities-Businesses-Collaborations) for healthier/happier/more sustainable living.
