Mitch McConnell announces vote on narrow stimulus measure as deal remains elusive

Pelosi has already rejected Mnuchin’s offer as completely inadequate, criticism she repeated Tuesday in a letter to House Democrats where she wrote, “Tragically, the Trump proposal falls significantly short of what this pandemic and deep recession demand.”

“A fly on the wall or wherever else it might land in the Oval Office tells me that the President only wants his name on a check to go out before Election Day and for the market to go up,” Pelosi wrote. “The American people want us to have an agreement to protect lives, livelihoods and the life of our American Democracy. Democrats are determined to do so!”

Pelosi later convened a conference call with House Democrats where she and her top committee chairs took turns criticizing the proposal, according to several people on the call who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss it.

The developments reinforced the vanishing prospects for any

From Best Products

Amazon published this Prime Day deal a day early for its Prime members. For about the price of a pizza, you can get your hands on the company’s Echo Dot smart speaker and a bonus LIFX smart lightbulb.

Over the years, the Echo Dot has become Amazon’s most popular smart speaker — probably due in part to its affordable price. This model is 70% louder than the second-generation Dot and it flaunts a UFO-shaped design with a fabric cover that comes in four different colors.

The Echo Dot will hear your voice commands via seven built-in microphones and it can connect to a larger audio system via Bluetooth or a standard 3.5-millimeter audio cable for an even fuller sound.

It’s the perfect accessory for getting the weather, news, or traffic. It also works wonderfully for setting timers, getting answers to questions, creating calendar events,

Invitation, Rockpoint Forge $1 Billion Rental-Home Deal

Real-estate investors have a mountain of money looking for a home. Lately a lot of it is ending up in suburban single-family houses.

Invitation Homes Inc.,


INVH -0.37%

the country’s largest rental-home owner, on Wednesday disclosed a joint venture with Boston property investor Rockpoint Group LLC that will result in more than $1 billion for the landlord’s ongoing house hunt.

Invitation, which owns about 80,000 houses, has been buying at a clip of roughly $200 million a quarter since a pause at the onset of the coronavirus lockdown. It sold $448 million of new shares in June to fuel its expansion, and the agreement with Rockpoint will add enough cash to buy about 3,500 more homes, said Dallas Tanner, Invitation’s chief executive.

It is the latest example of cash flowing from large money managers to single-family-rental companies. Financiers created the companies a decade ago to buy foreclosed homes by the

Will Soldier Field renovation deal deliver late hit to city budget?

In 2011, then-Mayor Rahm Emanuel argued that Chicago taxpayers are “not an ATM machine” and can’t afford to be the financial backstop for the $660 million renovation of Soldier Field.

The bonds that financed the Soldier Field project are paid off with part of the city’s hotel tax — but that financing package also assumed hotel tax revenue would grow by a rosy 5.5% a year. When it doesn’t, Chicago taxpayers make up the difference.

Emanuel was bracing for a $1.1 million hit that year, though in the end, the city lost just $185,000 of its state income tax revenue. Emanuel dumped three stadium authority board members and ordered their replacements to change the financing structure. But those changes were never made. The city remains on the hook.

Now, it may be time to turn on the ATM machine once again.

The stadium deal, announced in 2001, included a 2-percentage-point
