Finally, movement on stimulus negotiations

After seven meetings and more than 12 hours, the White House and top Democrats are finally starting to make progress on the stimulus package. Tuesday's meeting between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and White House officials was the most productive of all the meetings that were held up to that point.

Schumer claimed both sides made some concessions and that the talk shad finally moved beyond identifying places where the two sides disagree or looking for areas of overlap. The White House and top Democratic leaders are now moving to actual proposals.

Although that seems like a very minor shift, it does mean Americans are another step closer to a second stimulus payment. Disagreement on other provisions for the stimulus package have been holding up that second round of payments, although it seems both Republicans and Democrats agree more are necessary.

Both sides have set Friday as the deadline for getting a deal done and moving forward on the next package.
