No Relief: Congress deadlocked on pandemic payments

(NBC News)  With expanded unemployment benefits expiring, tens of millions of Americans out of work and COVID-19 cases still on the rise, Congress remains deadlocked on a new relief plan.

Republicans want to drop supplemental unemployment payments to $200 dollars, cutting them by two-thirds.

The White House has offered a one week extension.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has rejected the idea, saying it's not enough.

"What is a one week extension good for? A one week extension is good if you have a bill, and you're working it out," Pelosi said.
 
Meanwhile, Americans are struggling.
 
"We're seeing 2,000 to 3,000, up to 7,000 families come through in a three or four hour period," says Los Angeles Regional Food Bank President Michael Flood.
