Yellen says most important thing we can do to get on a path of fiscal sustainability is defeat the pandemic.

“To avoid doing what we need to do now to address the pandemic .. would likely leave us in a worse place fiscally and with respect to our debt situation.”

Yellen on inequality, per transcript of opening remarks:

"People worry about a K-shaped recovery but well before COVID-19 infected a single American, we were living in a K-shaped economy, one where wealth built on wealth while working families fell further and further behind."

The GOP has been warning of a 'tidal wave' of lawsuits from workers and customers against companies for infections.

We looked at the data. The flood has not materialized.

The dispute threatens the stimulus negotiations.

The chart says it all.

The US economy has recovered just over 60% of its covid losses. It's now about the size it was in Q1 2018.

Bottom line: US is recovering, but still a long way to go.

Latest on stimulus talks: Pelosi says she's still waiting for answers from Mnuchin on virus testing/tracing, state and local aid, schools, child care funding, tax credits, federal unemployment insurance, OHSA and liability. That's a long list.

An optimistic Pelosi says stimulus talks are progressing, but two huge issues (state and local aid, liability) are still unresolved with 12 days until the election. And none of it's going anywhere without at least some GOP buy-in.

McConnell appears to kill any chance of big stimulus by Nov. 3

"Mitch McConnell told Senate Republicans on Tuesday that he has warned the White House NOT to make a big stimulus deal before the election, according to two people familiar with his remarks."

25 million Americans are currently receiving unemployment aid.

It’s been 11 weeks since Congress let the extra $600 aid expire

It’s been 30 weeks of jobless claims worse than anything seen before

Pelosi: No stand-alone bill on the airlines without a bigger bill to crush the virus.

The three things the president called for in his tweets? (PPP, direct checks and airlines) “Not going to happen.”

Quoted @damianpaletta

Past 5 days:
Saturday: Trump says they need a stimulus deal.
Tuesday: Trump calls off the talks, then demands vote.
Wednesday: Mnuchin and Pelosi begin airline aid talks.
Thursday: Trump says broader talks are back on.

Also in Playbook:

OK, THIS IS THE LAST TIME WE’LL DO THIS. The substance of why Covid relief talks fell apart: 1) The two sides were roughly $1 trillion apart. 2) The GOP on Capitol Hill didn’t want a $2 trillion bill. They wanted an $800 billion to $1.5 trillion bill.
