Ron Johnson is not the most respected member of the United States Senate. In fact, he may be one of the least regarded. Joe Scarborough often refers to the Wisconsin lawmaker as America’s dumbest senator.
Within weeks of being in office, Joe Biden passed a massive stimulus package. The legislation will put money in the pockets of millions of Americans and also aid countless small businesses.
The measure is favored by over 2/3’s of Americans and more than half of the country’s Republicans. GOP lawmakers are now in the unenviable position of having the slam the massively popular bill.
Donald Trump was unlike any politician that America had ever seen. When he took office, though, he made a move that was very traditionally Republican. Trump passed a major tax cut for the wealthy.
Like Ronald Reagan and the Bushes before him, Trump said that the cuts would stimulate the economy and benefit the average American. Time has shown, though, that they don’t.
Senators recently voted on Joe Biden‘s relief plan. The bill was enormously popular with support from 70% of Americans and more than half of the country’s Republicans.
Still, 0% of GOP senators decided to support the bill. But according to Nancy Pelosi, they’ll be more than happy to take credit for the package when it works.
The Coronavirus pandemic has not only killed over 500,000 Americans, it has devastated millions more financially. That is why one of Joe Biden‘s early hopes is to get money out to these struggling people.
Donald Trump is on his way out of the White House looking like a bit of a loser. The president would much prefer to leave office on a high note. Time and time again he’s attempted to take credit for the COVID-19 vaccines. It hasn’t worked out for him.
When the first round of stimulus checks came out, Donald Trump wanted to make Americans think that they actually came from him. His gigantic signature was emblazoned on each payment sent.
The second stimulus check will go out while Trump is still in office. This payment will be half the amount that the first was, only coming in at $600. The lesser amount is due to a furious fight put up by Republicans lawmakers.
While most of the Mid-West swung back to Joe Biden this election season, the state of Ohio stayed red. That make Sherrod Brown’s 7% victory in his 2018 senate race all the more remarkable.
The Ohio Democrat has remained in office the last 13 years largely due to the way he appeals to and protects the state’s workers. And as was on display during a mask-wearing tiff just weeks ago, Brown isn’t afraid to pick a fight.
The COVID-19 pandemic is currently raging throughout the United States. The Trump administration has focused all of its energy on contesting the results of the election and has essentially ignored the virus.
Earlier today, it was revealed that Donald Trump wanted to wait on passing a coronavirus relief bill until after the election occurs. The president would like to concentrate on his Supreme Court nomination of Amy Coney Barrett for right now.
Senate Democratic Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) warned that the jobs numbers were pumped up by stimulus money, and without more, it will collapse.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi explains how Democrats stood together and broke through McConnell and Trump's obstruction to deliver a victory for small businesses.
Instead of waxing philosophically on the achievements of past presidents, it is worthwhile to take stock of the current President and recognize the monumental hurdles he cleared while battling Republicans who made destroying his presidency and the nation's economy their sole reason for serving in Congress.
“Don’t bet against America. Don't bet against the American auto industry!” Not something Republicans want to hear. They have been betting against both.
These ideologically-motivated refusals are perhaps not such a bright idea when you stop to think about it. The problem being of course, that not many people stopped to do any thinking leading up to these midterms and Republicans seem to be doing less thinking than most. It all became about rage and ideology. Nobody was thinking in practical terms. So they all decided to have a group foot shoot instead.
