WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden pitched his $2.3 trillion American Jobs Plan in Louisiana Thursday, putting a spotlight on the state's ailing infrastructure as he seeks to build widespread public support for his proposals. But the truth is, across the country, we have failed to properly invest in infrastructure for half a century," Biden said. Biden's Louisiana visit is part of the White House's "Getting America Back on Track" tour aimed at building public support for jobs and infrastructure proposals. A floating casino crashed into the bridge Biden was highlight during a hurricane last year. Despite the support Biden's plan might enjoy outside of Washington, the president is facing an uphill battle on Capitol Hill.

The board, created by Facebook to rule on a small slice of its content decisions, said the company was right to ban Trump following the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol by pro-Trump supporters. Link to board decision: hereFacebook indefinitely blocked Trump’s access to his Facebook and Instagram accounts over concerns of further violent unrest following the Jan. 6 riot. Facebook has come under fire both from those who think it should abandon its hands-off approach to political speech and those who saw the Trump ban as a worrying act of censorship. The decision marks a milestone for the recently-established board, which Facebook financed with $130 million. If they can ban President Trump, all conservative voices could be next.

Last week, Insider conducted the first-ever interview with Overheard District's mysterious account manager, who declined to reveal their identity. It started posting the conversations the account manager overheard out in the world, then taking user submissions to post to the account. If that all sounds like a lot of work for one person, Overheard District's account manager assures you that it is.

We discussed how to invest in the cannabis industry, how to choose companies, and who to avoid. The rule forces cannabis companies to pay high tax rates compared to companies in other industries, compressing margins (and share prices). Capitol Hill seems to differ from Biden's White House, where some staffers were recently fired for weed use. Johnson was formerly the DEI manager at the National Cannabis Industry Association.

Former and current Capitol Hill staffers told Insider cannabis use was fairly prevalent there. "But as with many things, Capitol Hill makes its own rules." That was in 2011, and he never was tested during his more than three years on Capitol Hill. If anything, weed use among Capitol Hill staffers appears to have become more common as an increasing number of states legalize its use and attitudes change, several people said. Using it is not considered a big deal among Hill staffers as long as they're discreet.

Here's what we're talking about:Rudy Giuliani conducting a news conference at the Republican National Committee on November 19. But Biden had to share the spotlight after the Department of Justice made explosive headlines by executing a search warrant on Rudy Giuliani. Biden's speech was forced to compete with the DOJ's Giuliani inquiry. President Joe Biden addressed a joint session of Congress in front of Vice President Kamala Harris and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday. Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina delivered the GOP rebuttal to Biden's speech: "Our best future won't come from Washington schemes or socialist dreams."

Romney said he supported providing cash payments over Biden's proposed federally backed childcare. He would give it to families "in a monthly check, and allow them to decide how to spend their money to help their child." Part of Biden's $1.8 trillion plan aims to save families $15,000 a year in childcare costs via subsidies. The Romney plan hasn't gained support among other Republicans, and some even slammed it as "welfare" after it was rolled out. Biden's American Families Plan, introduced on Wednesday, includes $225 billion for government-supported childcare, aiming to keep costs below 7% of a family's income — the level generally considered "affordable."

Lawmakers will be grilling her about her nomination to become a federal appeals court judge. But if the hearing goes well, the 50-year-old could someday get a callback for an even bigger role: Supreme Court justice. Bush nominated Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court in 1991, just a year after putting him on the D.C. It was just three years after he put the Notre Dame law professor on an appeals court. On Wednesday, lawmakers will also question three Biden nominees for federal trial judgeships.

I don't care what they wanted to know," Rep. Chris Stewart of Utah told FBI Director Christopher Wray, a lifelong Republican appointed by Trump. A day before the House session, Republican members of the Senate Intelligence Committee struck a much different tone at their own worldwide threats hearing. Because most House Republicans are elected in heavily Republican districts, Steel said, their main concerns are primary challenges. For decades, political arguments on Capitol Hill over national security and intelligence centered on philosophical differences — whether to use harsh interrogation techniques or whether to keep troops in Iraq. Now, a faction of the GOP appears to be arguing that some of the public servants working in national security agencies cannot be trusted.

The growing power struggle could have repercussions in the 2022 elections, when the party hopes to seize control of Democrats’ narrow majorities in the House and the Senate. Party officials recognize that Trump retains loyalty among the Republican base and that his endorsements carry weight. Speaking to a room full of Republican donors recently, Trump attacked McConnell for not objecting to the Electoral College count on Jan. 6. Senate Republican campaign officials say Greitens could have a difficult time winning a general election in a state that should easily be won by a Republican. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., who is also in charge of the Senate Republican campaign arm and has 2024 presidential ambitions himself, is trying to keep Trump in the fold.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's poster that defines gender as male and female is still up outside her congressional office. So is a transgender rights flag hung by her hallway neighbor, Rep. Marie Newman, whose daughter is transgender. It's been nearly two months since Rep. Marie Newman planted a transgender rights flag outside her Capitol Hill congressional office to support her daughter — and the recently introduced Equality Act. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Georgia Republican whose office is across from the Illinois Democrat, in turn hung a printed poster that read, "There are TWO genders: Male & Female. Rep.

Critics say evidence suggests the zones could be rewarding wealthy investors for projects that might well have happened even without the tax breaks. Still, the program has not yet risen to the top of the president’s tax agenda, administration officials say, given the other priorities that the White House is trying to push through Congress, including a $2.3 trillion infrastructure package. But administration officials are aware of the new study and concerned about its conclusions. They are particularly interested — as Mr. Biden promised in the campaign — in efforts to increase transparency and affordable housing investment in the zones. Mr. Theodos is pushing the administration to embrace a sort of government certification process for investment in the zones — essentially requiring officials to sign off on projects that are worthy of the tax breaks.

"We've got to get more confrontational," Waters told reporters when asked what would happen if Chauvin is acquitted. Waters, meanwhile, said she was not moved by the GOP criticism of her comments. On Monday, Chauvin's attorney asked the judge to declare a mistrial over Waters' comments, arguing that she had in effect prejudiced the jury. Speaking with reporters Tuesday, Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., was asked if Waters' comments are worthy of censure, why wouldn't Brooks' be as well. "If you look at Maxine Waters’ comments, the judge in the trial just yesterday acknowledged that Maxine Waters’ comments are so inflammatory that it could cause grounds for an appeal if that ruling goes the wrong way."

The White House has conceded that Biden's proposal stretches the definition of infrastructure to include roads to child care, and it is calling it the "American Jobs Plan." While Congress was hammering out a massive Covid-19 relief bill this year, 10 Republicans offered a $618 billion counteroffer to Biden's $1.9 trillion plan, presenting it as an option to reach bipartisan agreement. Biden and other Democrats insist that they want to negotiate a bipartisan plan and are eager to see what Republicans are willing to support. "I think we're united that the president's package is not an infrastructure package. If it takes $4 trillion, I'd do $4 trillion, but we have to pay for it," he told reporters.

WASHINGTON — The Capitol Police ignored critical intelligence ahead of the Jan. 6th riot, including overlooking a warning that, “Congress itself is the target,” according to an internal watchdog report obtained by NBC News. The report also makes several recommendations about how the Capitol Police can be better prepared in the future. NBC News reviewed the report on Wednesday ahead of a public hearing on Thursday before a House Administration subcommittee to discuss its findings. In addition, the report found that an FBI field office in Norfolk, Va., also warned the Capitol Police. The watchdog report also found that Capitol Police leaders told officers to avoid using the most aggressive possible responses at the time.

Sen. Shelly Moore Capito said a "sweet spot" for a bipartisan infrastructure deal is less than half of what Biden wants. "I would say probably into the $600 or $800 billion, but we haven't put all of that together yet," Capito told CNBC. I would say probably into the $600 or $800 billion, but we haven't put all of that together yet," Capito told CNBC. The Biden infrastructure plan includes major funding to fix roads and bridges and set up clean energy incentives. Capito criticized the Biden proposal's expansive scope, arguing it should be constrained to roads, bridges, airports, broadband, and water infrastructure.

WASHINGTON—President Biden and congressional leaders paid tribute Tuesday to the late Capitol Police Officer William “Billy” Evans as his casket lay in honor in the Capitol Rotunda after he was killed in the line of duty earlier this month. Mr. Evans, 41 years old, died April 2 when a man drove a vehicle into a barricade outside the Capitol building, injuring one other officer. “I buried two of my children,” Mr. Biden said. I promise you it’s going to come, it just takes a while. It takes a while.”Mr. Evans was remembered as devoted to his family and two children, playing board games, Legos and recently finishing reading the Harry Potter series with them.

WASHINGTON — U.S. Capitol Police Officer William Evans, who was killed earlier this month when a man rammed his car into him and another officer at the Capitol, will lie in honor in the building’s Rotunda on Tuesday. Evans, an 18-year veteran of the force, will be the fourth Capitol Police officer to ever lie in honor. He was killed on April 2 when a man drove a car into him and another officer before hitting a security barricade outside the Capitol. The memorial for Evans comes three months after the attack on the Capitol by a mob of Trump supporters, which resulted in the death of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick. Another Capitol Police officer, Howard Liebengood, died by suicide in the days after the riot.

McConnell refused to respond to attacks from Trump, who called him a "dumb son of a b----." Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell declined to respond to attacks from former President Donald Trump, who called him a "dumb son of a b----" over the weekend. Ultimately, however, McConnell voted to acquit Trump in his second impeachment trial in which he was charged with "incitement of insurrection." Since leaving office, Trump has vowed to exact revenge on McConnell and other Republicans he has perceived as wrongfully turning against him. Senate Republicans are concerned about the fractured ties between McConnell and Trump and want to see them mend their relationship, Politico reported on Monday.
