According to WGNTV, Twitter on 14 November is confusing at best.

Prior to the election, the White House and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi agreed that any agreed package of incentives would include, WGNTV said.
Democrats are pushing for a major plan that includes new federal unemployment benefits, another $1,200 payment round and additional support from state and local governments, the office said.
However, the word directed is in line with McConnell’s recent position on incentives, WGNTV explained.
The 11th. On 11 November, the Senate majority leader said a massive stimulus package was not necessary to get the economy back on track, arguing that the recovery was stronger and faster than everyone had predicted.
Our country needs smarter, more targeted help focused on schools, health care, small businesses and those who do the most damage, McConnell said. Not the absurd multi-million-dollar socialist wish lists the Democrats were asking for.
The Senate majority leader said the next package should resemble the Republican Senate’s previous proposal of $500 billion – which was blocked before Democrats elected him to the Senate, CNBC reports.
In October, McConnell announced its intention to vote independently on additional instruments of the Pandemic Preparedness Program, which will provide credit to small businesses struggling to stay open during a pandemic.
