John Thys | AFP | Getty ImagesAmericans aren't buying electric vehicles, they're buying Teslas. But that's starting to change as so-called traditional automakers and start-ups invest billions in a slew of new electric vehicles to compete against Tesla. The influx of EVs — from a couple dozen today to estimates of hundreds of new models by 2025 — are expected to eat away at Tesla's market share in the coming years. "In a growth market, it's extremely challenging to maintain majority market share, regardless of industry. IHS Markit expects electric vehicles to make up about 40% of the U.S. industry by 2030.

GE, like other manufacturers, is grappling with a labor crunch and shortages of raw materials such as semiconductor chips and resins. The Boston-based company expects 2021 adjusted profit in the range of $1.80 to $2.10 per share, compared with $1.20 to $2.00 estimated previously. GE said it expects revenue growth, margin expansion, and higher free cash flow next year. However, it narrowed free cash flow estimates for 2021 to $3.75 billion to $4.75 billion from the $3.5 billion to $5.0 billion earlier forecast. It generated $1.7 billion in free cash flow from industrial operations during the quarter, compared with $514 million a year ago.

The four weeks provision was recently presented as a compromise to the 12 weeks Biden initially proposed. Asked Monday if he had concerns about the paid leave proposal, Manchin said: "I'm concerned about an awful lot of things." Even if Democrats were to settle on four weeks paid parental leave, the U.S. would still lag numerous countries. Fresh opposition to paid family leave, a priority for Biden and progressives, could deal a significant setback to negotiations over the bill.

WASHINGTON — Democrats in Washington and across the country have been wondering the same thing for months: how they can wear down Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz. Arizona activists took the opposite approach, pursuing Sinema into a bathroom earlier this month to harangue her. Sinema described her own legislative philosophy — and how it changed when she was in the Arizona legislature — in a 2009 book. The challenge for Democratic leaders is not that Sinema is enigmatic or erratic, it's that she is holding firm to positions they don't agree with. But if they can pass Biden's plan in some form, it will not be in spite of Sinema.

"I'm a climate change activist, and I talk about climate change all the time, but you have to meet people where they are." Some activists have begun to argue that a wider proportion of Americans are amenable to policies that combat climate change if you talk less about "climate change" — because the issue has become so polarized — and more about the specific impact on jobs, the economy and the environment. Instead of climate change, he talks about air quality, forest fires and the impact of decreasing snowpack from warmer winters on ski resorts in his district. It's a message Biden has emphasized at times, too, such as his saying in his joint address to Congress this year, "When I think climate change, I think jobs." Sabine Marx, the director of research for the National Center for Disaster Preparedness at Columbia University's Earth Institute, has described the approach as "leading to" climate change, rather than "leading with" climate change.

DeSantis on Sunday reiterated to Fox News that he wants to pay police officers who move to Florida a $5,000 bonus. Ron DeSantis said he wants to pass legislation that would give police officers who relocate to his state $5,000. The bill would offer a $5,000 bonus to out-of-state law enforcement. Earlier this month, DeSantis said he planned to wage a lawsuit against the federal government over vaccine mandates. Earlier this month, DeSantis and the Florida Department of Health fined one county $3,570,000 for violating the state's ban on vaccine passports.

Two Jan. 6 protest organizers told Rolling Stone that they met with more than "a dozen" GOP representatives. They say they met with several members of Congress including Paul Gosar, Lauren Boebert, and Madison Cawthorn. The names of both sources have been kept secret because they are cooperating with the House select committee's probe into the Capitol insurrection, per Rolling Stone. "She objected just like Democrats who have objected to Republican presidential victories over the years," he wrote, per Rolling Stone. The offices of Greene, Gosar, Biggs, Brooks, Boebert, Cawthorn, and Gohmert did not immediately respond to Insider's requests for comment.

Still, the remnants of pepper spray and tear gas continue to plague some officers each time they put on the same riot gear they wore while retaking the Capitol. An unnamed MPD officer told Insider the fire department "came by, and they literally just hosed down all of our gear."

What's happening: The Biden administration wanted to raise the corporate tax rate to 28% from 21%, while Democrats in the House had pitched a 26.5% rate. Yet lawmakers have indicated they're pivoting away from corporate tax hikes due to opposition from Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, a crucial swing vote. But the apparent move away from corporate tax increases could feed the recent stock market rally. In a note to clients last month, Goldman Sachs warned that potential changes to the corporate tax code could hit profits in 2022. Goldman's Alec Phillips said last Thursday that he thinks Democrats could circle back to raising the corporate tax rate — at least a little.

US President Joe Biden gives an update on the Covid-19 response and vaccination program, in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington, DC, on October 14, 2021. Worried that President Joe Biden's Covid vaccine mandate for private companies could cause a mass exodus of employees, business groups are pleading with the White House to delay the rule until after the holiday season. OMB officials have several meetings lined up Monday and Tuesday with groups representing dentists, trucking companies, staffing companies and realtors, among others. "It has been a hectic holiday season already, as you know, with supply chain struggles," Armstrong told CNBC after meeting the White House last Monday. The National Retail Federation and the retail leaders group asked White House officials in meetings last week to give businesses 90 days to comply with the mandate — delaying the effective date to late January at the earliest, lobbyists said.

Insider interviewed 34 people who lived through that day for an exclusive oral history. A special committee in Congress is also investigating — and demanding that Trump associates and officials testify. That's why Insider embarked over the past several months on an oral history project to document a heart-wrenching and visceral moment in the nation's history. Janitorial staff, journalists, and members of Congress say they still wrestle with memories of that day. Check out the full January 6 oral history here.

U.S. taps private groups to help resettle Afghan refugees
  + stars: | 2021-10-25 | by ( ) www.reuters.com   time to read: +3 min
Tens of thousands of Afghans have arrived in the United States as part of an American evacuation. President Joe Biden's administration is working to accommodate as many as 50,000 refugees in the United States. Sarah Krause, executive director of the Community Sponsorship Hub, said the sponsorship program will help create enduring bonds between the Afghans and the communities that sponsor them. Some refugee organizations have been pushing for the United States to adopt a program of private or community sponsorship for individual refugees, similar to a model used in Canada. Last month, former U.S. Presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama helped launch a new group, Welcome.US, aimed at supporting the Afghan refugees.

An investigation by CNN shows Arana is not alone in her challenge to find monoclonal antibodies. The end result is that many Covid-19 patients are left hunting on their own for the only drug that can help them. When asked by CNN why more doctors and health centers aren't getting antibodies to their Covid-19 patients, Fauci said, "I can't explain that." A desperate search for antibodiesStarr Kidda did everything she could to get monoclonal antibodies for her father, and she failed. In August, the Mass General Brigham in Massachusetts was administering just 27 monoclonal antibody treatments a week.

Democrats are inching toward new targeted taxes on billionaires to pay for their safety net expansion. "We probably will have a wealth tax," Nancy Pelosi said on Sunday. They're rushing to wrap up talks with holdouts Manchin and Sinema, who are demanding smaller spending plans. The concept bears a strong similarity to the wealth tax that Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts popularized during the 2020 presidential campaign. Democrats are rushing to wrap up talks on their social spending plan aimed at renewing the bulked-up child tax credit, provide housing assistance, fight the climate emergency, and expand access to healthcare.

Private equity and hedge funds accounted for over $625 million in political spending during the cycle leading up to the 2020 election, with the lion's share going to campaign contributions, according to new research. The study tallied the total spent on campaign contributions and lobbying during the 2020 cycle from both individuals and political action committees linked to various funds. Private equity spent much more on lobbying ($70 million) than hedge funds did ($8.5 million), the research shows. Spending was more evenly split when it came to campaign contributions. More than $262 million came from those in the private equity sector, while over $285 million came from the hedge fund world.

Some members of Congress did not realize just how bad the January 6 insurrection was during it. "We're learning how bad this is from people texting us, emailing us, calling us," one lawmaker told Insider. Members then hunkered down in secure locations or sheltered-in-place in their offices until law enforcement secured the building. But some lawmakers didn't witness the chaos that erupted that day. GOP Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin said he didn't learn that rioters had shouted racist abuse at Black police officers until a month later.

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) holds her weekly news conference at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, U.S., October 12, 2021. REUTERS/James Lawler DugganWASHINGTON, Oct 24 (Reuters) - Democrats have almost reached an agreement on a social spending bill that is a pared-down version of U.S. President Joe Biden's priorities and plan to vote on that and an infrastructure bill in the coming week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Sunday. Moderate Democrats, most notably Manchin and Senator Kyrsten Sinema, had objected to the original $3.5 trillion price tag and some provisions of the latter bill. Pelosi said lawmakers have an array of options to fund the spending bill even without the corporate tax rate hike, including better tax enforcement, a so-called billionaires tax and international tax harmonization. Addressing climate change is a health issue, a jobs issue, a security issue and a values issue for Democrats, Pelosi said.

President Joe Biden's approval ratings are in a slump, but that doesn't mean he can't dream of brighter days, like the time he was vice president. Press Secretary Jen Psaki, played by Chloe Fineman, obliged when current President Biden (James Austin Johnson) told her to "lay some of those facts on me." Enter Sudeikis' vice president in aviator sunglasses and a casual jacket: "I'm you from eight years ago, man.

Wallace said he doesn't know if "anything was particularly accomplished" from the exchange but that Doocy and Psaki both "gave and got pretty good."

Childcare — or lack thereof — "significantly" exacerbates labor shortages, Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo told Insider. Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah) told Insider that labor crunches are due in part to difficulty finding childcare. Here's what childcare workers say could help fix the industry.

Crenshaw's committee acknowledged that someone stole nearly $5,000 from its account in October 2020. As for Crenshaw's campaign, his re-election committee would have been just fine even if it hadn't recouped the stolen money.
