What A Day - December 17, 2020 - 21:16

Congressional leaders think they could pass a roughly $900 billion stimulus bill by the end of the week, which might include direct payments, but won't include money for states and localities. A deal can’t come soon enough: eight million Americans have been pushed into poverty since this summer, while jobless claims (and COVID cases) are rising.The Supreme Court announced it will hear a case on compensation of athletes in the NCAA.
