Republicans Wave the White Flag on Health Care (for Now)
  + stars: | 2021-06-18 | by ( Lisa Lerer | ) www.nytimes.com + 0.99   time to read: +2 min
Republicans lost the 2018 midterm elections after Democrats flipped their strategy from deflecting attacks on the law to defending its most popular provisions. A year later, supporting an expansion of Medicaid, a signature piece of the law, helped Democrats win governors’ races in deep-red Louisiana and Kentucky. “If Republicans continue to do this, they are likely to continue to lose elections on this issue.”The changed politics reflect a policy that has become part of the American social fabric. More than 70 percent of Americans and 67 percent of Republicans believe it is important that popular provisions protecting Americans with pre-existing conditions remain in place. This kind of deep rooting in American life is exactly the outcome many Republicans feared after the law was passed.

Do We Need a New Atlantic Charter?
  + stars: | 2021-06-17 | by ( Richard J. Evans | ) www.wsj.com + 0.00   time to read: +3 min
The much-publicized agreement reflects Mr. Johnson’s determination to reorient British foreign policy away from Europe in the wake of Brexit. Today we do the same.” But does the new Atlantic Charter really deserve the comparison with the historic original? In fact, the Atlantic Charter of 1941 was less about remaking the world than about fighting World War II. In this sense, the Atlantic Charter was more a propaganda statement than a program for action. Even the name “Atlantic Charter” wasn’t official; it was invented by the Daily Herald, a left-wing British newspaper, to describe what was formally known as the Joint Declaration by the President and the Prime Minister.

Juneteenth Moves Closer to National Holiday Status

The House voted 415-14 to make June 19, or Juneteenth, a national holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the U.S., the first new federal holiday created by Congress in nearly four decades. The law would give the day the same status as Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving and other federal holidays. FROM THE ARCHIVE Companies are observing Juneteenth as a holiday for the first time following nationwide protests calling for racial equality. Although it would be observed for two million federal employees, not all state and local governments or private-sector employers would necessarily follow suit. President Franklin D. Roosevelt declared Columbus Day a national holiday in 1934, and in 21 states it is a paid holiday for state employees, according to the Council of State Governments.

Biden, Johnson Chart Path for U.S.-U.K. Ties

PLYMOUTH, England—President Biden and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson outlined a vision for U.S.-U.K. relations centered on promoting democracy and countering the influence of autocratic states during their first in-person meeting. The two leaders on Thursday agreed on a wide-ranging document that charts a path forward from a global pandemic that has killed millions, as the virus continues spreading in some parts of the world. It calls for investments in science and technology, renewed efforts to address climate change and improved defenses against global health threats. The two-page document—dubbed the “Atlantic Charter,” after the joint statement made by then-Prime Minister Winston Churchill and President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1941 when they set out their approach to a post-World War II world—includes few specific policy commitments. “We must ensure that democracies—starting with our own—can deliver on solving the critical challenges of our time,” the new charter states.

As part of the agreement, Biden and Johnson will also work to reopen travel between the U.S. and U.K. as soon as possible. U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan confirmed the updated Atlantic Charter agreement aboard Air Force One while en route to the U.K. Wednesday for Biden's first trip abroad as president. “There'll be a refresher of the Atlantic Charter, which is now 80 years old,” Sullivan told reporters. And while the Atlantic Charter represents the latest chapter in the "special relationship" between Washington and London, the British government said this week that Johnson doesn't like that term. An aide told The Atlantic in a profile about Johnson that the prime minister thought the phrase appeared needy.

PLYMOUTH, England—President Biden and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will meet in person for the first time Thursday, in a test of U.S.-U.K. relations amid the coronavirus pandemic, Brexit and growing tensions over Northern Ireland. The two leaders are expected to announce a wide-ranging “Atlantic Charter” aimed at solidifying trans-Atlantic relations. Before their formal meeting, Messrs. Johnson and Biden will view the 1941 Atlantic Charter, which will be on display in the country of Cornwall. At issue is a post-Brexit agreement aimed at avoiding a hard border between Ireland, which is in the EU, and Northern Ireland, which is in the U.K. Instead, the U.K. and the EU have agreed to be border checks on goods heading from Britain to Northern Ireland, effectively placing a border of sorts within the U.K.

Mr. Biden and Mr. Johnson are expected to announce what is being billed as a renewal of the Atlantic Charter — the declaration of post-war cooperation that Prime Minister Winston Churchill and President Franklin D. Roosevelt laid out in 1941 during World War II. Mr. Biden opposed Britain’s drive leave the European Union, a push that Mr. Johnson helped lead. Mr. Biden and Mr. Johnson will meet on Thursday afternoon at Carbis Bay in Cornwall, before Friday’s meeting of Group of 7 leading industrial nations. Mildenhall, he called his weeklong diplomatic overture “essential,” saying that no nation acting alone could meet the world’s challenges. Mr. Biden also cast his trip in broader terms as an effort to rally the United States and its allies in an existential struggle between democracy and autocracy.

PLYMOUTH, England—President Biden and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will seek to ease Covid-19 travel restrictions as part of a wide-ranging “Atlantic Charter” before this week’s Group of Seven meeting, according to Mr. Johnson’s office. Following the Thursday meeting, Messrs. Biden and Johnson are expected to announce the formation of a task force with the goal of reopening travel between the U.S. and the UK as soon as possible. As more people get vaccinated, countries around the world are lifting restrictions, allowing for business and leisure travel. In March 2020, then-President Donald Trump barred most travel into the U.S. from the UK by noncitizens. In recent months, major airlines have urged the Biden administration to lift the restrictions.

The Indianapolis Star reported that appraisers undervalued a Black resident's home because of her race. The Star spoke to Carlette Duffy, a Black homeowner who had sought three appraisals on her home to start the process of refinancing her current mortgage loan. "There's something going on in the practices and policies of appraisals, real estate agent behavior, and lending." Insider previously reported that Black Americans lag behind white Americans on homeownership, with Black people being denied mortgages at higher rates than white people, even though many are credit-worthy. That's why lawmakers, led by Rep. Emmanuel Cleaver II of Missouri, introduced the Real Estate Valuation Fairness and Improvement Act in April to combat disparities in the real estate appraisal industry.
