Mike Pence said Thursday he was "proud" to do his Constitutional duty and certify the election. "There is almost no idea more un-American than the idea that one person could choose the president," Pence said. Some members of the mob believed the vice president could stop the certification, as Trump had claimed, and were chanting "Hang Mike Pence." "But the Constitution provides the vice president with no such authority before the joint session of Congress." Some Trump supporters still hold Pence accountable for certifying the election for President Joe Biden.

Republicans are itching to conduct investigations of Hunter Biden if they win the majority in 2022. GOP inquiries would force the White House to play whack-a-mole with Hunter Biden accusations. Republicans are gearing up for a hot pursuit of Hunter Biden should they win a majority in Congress in the 2022 midterms. Republicans say they want to know more about Hunter Biden's ties to China and the Ukraine gas company Burisma. Johnson has this year sent at least four letters to federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies demanding answers on different Hunter Biden allegations, including on possible ties to "foreign nationals connected to the communist Chinese government"; unethical links to a Biden administration DOJ appointee; and an incident allegedly involving Hunter Biden and a firearm.

Private capital has remained on the sidelines eager to invest. Let’s start with the basics: Infrastructure is a terrific, necessary investment, and the private sector has the capital to pay for it. The original toll roads, meanwhile, saw safety improve, congestion decrease and toll rates fall thanks to private sector investment. It can allow states to commission projects worth many times the public investment, as has already happened in Virginia, Maryland and Florida. Too often, the answer is “someone else.” This compromise proposal has sent the bill to private capital, the “someones” volunteering to pay.

Failed attempts to pass marriage equality measures in 2007 and 2009, however, left supporters deflated. Andrew Cuomo was sworn into office in January after making same-sex marriage a key plank in his campaign. “We had the opposite of momentum,” said Brian Ellner, who left then-Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s office in 2011 to help lead New Yorkers for Marriage Equality. During the race, Marchione questioned McDonald’s conservative bona fides, claiming he backed same-sex marriage to secure campaign donations. That May, then-Vice President Joe Biden came out in favor of same-sex marriage, quickly followed by President Barack Obama.

The bipartisan group of Senators negotiating an infrastructure package will head to the White House to meet with President Joe Biden on Thursday. The lawmakers appeared optimistic after closed-door meetings with White House officials Wednesday. “We’ve agreed to a framework on the entire package,” Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, told reporters Wednesday afternoon. White House officials also met with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., on Wednesday. “I would call this a much sturdier framework,” Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., said.

The bipartisan group of senators meeting with White House officials said they reached a 'framework' for a deal. They will present their framework for the massive spending package to President Joe Biden tomorrow. "There's a framework of agreement on a bipartisan infrastructure package," Collins told reporters on Wednesday after the meeting. Simultaneously, Senate Democrats are considering pushing through an infrastructure package drafted by Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is chair of the Senate Budget Committee.

Florida congressman Matt Gaetz tweeted that the FBI should be defunded, then deleted it after one minute. A Gaetz spokesperson told Vice that the congressman had made and deleted a "jocular tweet." A Gaetz spokesman told Vice that Gaetz "felt it appropriate to remove a jocular tweet taken from a speech some time ago." While this ongoing FBI investigation around Gaetz continues, he has launched several salvos at the Bureau. On Newsmax, Gaetz alleged that the FBI had a role in "organizing and participating" in the January 6 Capitol riot.

Initial jobless claims fell slightly to 411,000 last week, coming in above the median economist estimate. Jobless claims totaled an unadjusted 411,000 last week, the Labor Department said Thursday. The slight decline suggests the labor market's recovery may be stagnating as claims fail to return to their pandemic-era lows. Continuing claims, which track Americans receiving unemployment benefits, edged lower to 3.39 million for the week that ended June 12. The "matching function" of pairing job openings with eligible Americans may take some time and limit the speed of the economic recovery, Powell said.

Some ex-Trump officials are playing key roles in stirring hostility to critical race theory (CRT). Bannon, Trump's former campaign chief and advisor, is playing a key role in supporting activists and seeking to stoke a so-called culture war around critical race theory. Critical race is an academic field that seeks to understand systemic racial prejudice and combat it, say its advocates. Institutions including schools and government departments have begun teaching aspects of critical race theory in a bid to tackle racial prejudice. In recent months lawmakers in Idaho and Tennessee have outlawed the teaching of critical race theory in schools.

A growing group of Republicans who could run for president in 2024 are making their way to New York to meet with lucrative donors. Potential contenders who either have or are set to gather with donors in the Big Apple include former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Sens. Trump has not ruled out running for president again after losing in 2020 to President Joe Biden. Democratic candidates have fared better in the blue state, with New York donors contributing over $385 million to those running on that side of the ticket. Garbarino is running for reelection in the New York congressional district he won in 2020 by around 6 percentage points.

The pandemic economic recovery is weird, but it can teach us a lot about things like inflation, wages, and inequality. But to learn those lessons — and make good policy based on them — legislators have to acknowledge them and pay attention. Both Democrats and Republicans failed to ask productive questions about how the Federal Reserve is responding to the weird economic dislocations caused by the pandemic — inflation being foremost among them. Low-wage workers are demanding higher wages because the labor market has tightened as jobs open faster than employers can fill them. The bond market is telling us — at least so far — that this wonky economy will return to normal.

Schumer and Pelosi are plowing ahead with a separate spending package without the GOP. Most Democrats are pressing for a separate package focused on the social initiatives Biden has laid out, including healthcare, childcare, and education. But all 50 Democratic senators would have to support the sprawling spending package, given the strong odds of united GOP opposition. "We've agreed on a framework on the entire package and we're going to the White House," Sen. Mitt Romney told reporters. The bipartisan group of 10 lawmakers is evenly divided between Republicans and Democrats.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi finalized plans to create a select committee to investigate January 6. "This morning, with great solemnity and sadness, I am announcing the House will be establishing a select committee on the January 6th insurrection," Pelosi said in her weekly news conference. After multiple outlets reported her plans to create a select committee, Pelosi said she was not ready to make an announcement, but she made the news official the next day on Thursday. By contrast, a select committee made up of members of Congress is convened temporarily to investigate or study a particular matter. The select committee will include both a Democratic chair appointed by Pelosi and a Republican ranking member appointed by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

A group of Republican and Democratic senators struck a bipartisan infrastructure deal on Thursday. Biden had proposed hiking the corporate tax rate from 21% to 28%, after the rate had been slashed from 35% in Trump's 2017 tax law. Instead, a document outlining the bipartisan deal lists reducing the tax gap — the gap between taxes owed and collected — as one potential way to offset spending. He cited an estimate from IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig that the tax gap could be in the ballpark of $1 trillion a year. In remarks following the deal's announcement, Biden said he looked forward to receiving the bipartisan physical infrastructure deal, as well as a "human infrastructure" bill that will likely just garner party-line support.

It would be partially paid for by targeting unemployment fraud and unused federal unemployment funds. Repurposed federal UI will account for $25 billion of the deal's pay-fors, a person familiar with details of the plan told Insider. At least 26 states are prematurely cutting off federal unemployment benefits this summer. Many of the states opting out are ending all federal benefits, including programs with expanded eligibility. Overall, about 4 million Americans will see their benefits end ahead of schedule.

A host on the far-right One America News suggested killing "traitors" over false election fraud claims. False claims of systemic fraud in the 2020 election will result in blood being spilled, a Republican congressman warned Thursday. There is no evidence of a mass conspiracy around the 2020 election, which President Joe Biden won. President Joe Biden won the county by more than 45,000 votes. Biden won the state by more than 154,000 votes.
