The COVID-19 relief bill has languished for months, with no signs that congress will ever approve it.
Now, Business Insider reports that Democrats are ready to do anything to get the relief passed.

AP reports that Dick Durbin and Chris Coons would back a slimmed-down $748 billion compromise deal which omits the support.
The bipartisan group trimmed off state and local government aid, and legal protections for businesses.
These now form part of a separate $160 billion proposal, which has less chance of passing.
