It's not a perfect bill, but it is a compromise bill that can bring people together," Rep. Tom Reed, D-N.Y., said on "Squawk Box." The Problem Solvers Caucus this week unveiled a $908 billion coronavirus stimulus plan with a bipartisan group of senators, including Sens. They're now at $900 billion supporting this bipartisan, bicameral package that we put together," he said. They recognize we have to get this done as Covid surges, as people continue to suffer, businesses running out of the lifelines," added Reed. It's not a perfect bill, but it is a compromise bill that can bring people together."

Trump has increasingly complained about the law as platforms like Twitter fact-checked his posts before and after the election. “That's not a part of the bill,” he said on Wednesday, adding that he has said the same to Trump. Trump maintains high approval ratings among Republican voters, which has made some lawmakers squeamish about crossing him. Others in the party are hopeful Trump can be convinced that completing the year-end items would boost his image. He said that if such a deal materializes, it would likely be attached to the government funding bill that must pass by Dec. 11 to avoid a shutdown.

From 2016 to 2020, Hetherington argued in an email,there was no marked increase in the percentage of nonwhite voters. The key factor in this shift among white voters, Hetherington contended, was a major change in “the mix of urban, suburban, and rural voters” who turned out in 2020. This did not happen becauserural Georgia voters stayed home. Biden was more successful than Clinton in stanching the Democrats’ bleeding in rural, white areas, especially in Pennsylvania where it mattered a lot. Democratic Party affiliates, on the other hand, are increasingly organized around the counternarrative to Trumpism.

No CFO indicated they think it is "very likely" that a corporate tax hike is coming, though a little under one-third of chief financial officers (32%) indicated they do think it is "somewhat likely" Biden achieves his corporate tax goal. Where tax policy experts think Biden can act"Absent single party control, it will be extremely challenging for the Biden Administration to legislatively roll back the 2017 tax reform," Caroline Harris, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's vice president, tax policy and economic development, and chief tax policy counsel, wrote in an email to CNBC. "Biden's biggest revenue-raisers are an increase in the corporate tax rate from 21 percent to 28 percent and a provision to impose the Social Security payroll tax on wages above $400,000. Biden's plan would combine this new tax break with several corporate tax increases, including new taxes on U.S. firms with overseas income. "The consensus seems to be that Biden will attempt to raise corporate taxes and be unsuccessful in doing so.

WASHINGTON — A bipartisan group of lawmakers outlined a temporary $908 billion coronavirus relief proposal on Tuesday, far less than Democrats had hoped for, aimed at breaking a stalemate that has persisted for months. Republican leadership is pushing for a $500 billion package that has faltered in the Senate amid a lack of bipartisan support. The proposal includes $160 billion in aid to state and local governments, a priority for Democrats that Republicans have resisted. The framework provides $288 billion in support for small businesses like restaurants, and $180 billion to renew unemployment insurance, according to a summary obtained by NBC News. The working group pushing the new deal also includes four Republicans: Rep. Tom Reed of New York and Sens.

Georgia Democratic Senate candidates Raphael Warnock, left, and Jon Ossoff hold a campaign rally in Marietta on Nov. 15, 2020.

WASHINGTON/CHICAGO (Reuters) - U.S. airlines would receive $17 billion for four months of payroll support under a new $908 billion bipartisan Senate COVID-19 relief proposal, staffers for two U.S. The $45 billion in transportation assistance is designed to provide assistance for four months. A separate Senate Republican leadership relief plan summary sent to lawmakers later on Tuesday had no reference to additional transportation assistance. In October, American Airlines and United Airlines furloughed more than 32,000 workers after a prior $25 billion payroll assistance program expired. For months, airlines had sought another $25 billion bailout to keep workers on the payroll for another six months.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President-elect Joe Biden’s promise to end U.S. fossil fuel subsidies worth billions of dollars a year for drillers and miners could be hard to keep due to resistance from lawmakers in a narrowly divided Congress, including from within his own party. Biden has said axing fossil fuel subsidies will generate money to help pay for his broader $2 trillion climate plan. It would help establish the United States as a global leader on climate, potentially helping convince other big emitters to axe fossil fuel subsidies. Estimates of the value of fossil fuel subsidies, which mainly take the form of tax breaks, vary. Biden and Congress will be under pressure to reduce the federal deficit by cutting such tax breaks.

He called for an "interim package" to provide support until President-elect Joe Biden takes office in January. Bipartisan lawmakers plan to unveil a coronavirus stimulus package Tuesday after months of congressional inaction on curbing the economic damage from the outbreak. Senators who have joined in the discussions about the aid proposal include Warner, Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, and Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah. If the unemployment programs expire at the end of the year, about 12 million Americans could lose benefits. Some lawmakers could push to tie coronavirus aid provisions to a spending bill Congress needs to pass before Dec. 11 to avoid a government shutdown.

A bipartisan group of senators unveiled a $908 billion stimulus plan that contains federal unemployment benefits but omits another round of $1,200 direct payments for taxpayers. The compromise package represents a concerted effort to break the deadlock on Capitol Hill on another coronavirus relief plan, but its unclear whether it will gain traction. A bipartisan group of senators unveiled $908 billion stimulus plan on Tuesday aimed at breaking the monthslong deadlock on Capitol Hill. But the compromise plan omitted another round of $1,200 stimulus checks, likely in an attempt to keep the plan's price tag under $1 trillion. Instead, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has touted a $500 billion relief plan that emphasizes funding for schools, public health systems and small businesses.

Joe Manchin and Susan Collins, just unveiled a $908 billion package to try to end the gridlock over a coronavirus stimulus. Sen. Joe Manchin, a Democrat of West Virginia, told Insider that the group had worked "around the clock" to come to a bipartisan deal over the course of the last three weeks. The caucus introduced a $1.5 trillion bipartisan deal ahead of the election but it didn't gain traction. The amount in the bipartisan deal is far less than what Democratic leaders wanted. $16 billion for a vaccine rolloutThe bipartisan deal would provide $16 billion for coronavirus testing and contact tracing — far short of the $75 billion Democrats want — but in line with the Republican demand.

Mr. Powell, who told lawmakers that the Fed would have preferred to keep those lending programs going while acknowledging that it was Mr. Mnuchin’s place to decide, painted a more dire picture of the economic outlook. He pointed to continued uncertainty around the speed of a vaccine rollout, the reality that millions remain out of work and the fact that small businesses could fail in the winter months. “We do have a long way to go,” Mr. Powell said. The measure would provide $160 billion to help state, local and tribal governments facing fiscal ruin — a fraction of what Democrats had sought. Also included was $288 billion to help small businesses, restaurants and theaters, and a short-term federal liability shield from coronavirus-related lawsuits.

Empowered by an Odds-Defying Win, Susan Collins is Ready to Deal

WASHINGTON — The calls began pouring in even before Senator Susan Collins, Republican of Maine, bounded onto a makeshift stage in a snowy parking lot in Bangor to declare victory in a race she was supposed to have lost. Republicans who had privately fretted about her demise offered hearty congratulations, professing to have always known she would survive. The question is how Ms. Collins, who has long held sway as one of the few swing votes in a narrowly divided Senate, will use that power. She has drawn brutal criticism in the past for courting compromise, only to ultimately side with the Republican Party line. Now with Republicans bent on blocking any policy accomplishments by a Biden administration, Ms. Collins will be under immense pressure from both sides for her pivotal vote.

He'll start off with a vast network of political connections forged during 36 years in the Senate and eight years in the Obama White House. Joe Biden will need powerful allies in Congress to help him chalk up big legislative wins now that he's headed to the White House. Some of Biden's top allies in Congress are also considered contenders for White House or Cabinet jobs. He's for instance already picked Louisianna Democrat Rep. Cedric Richmond to become a senior adviser and director of the White House Office of Public Engagement. Here's Insider's list of 17 people in Congress whose relationships with Biden will be critical after his swearing-in on January 20.

FILE PHOTO: Sockeye salmon are seen in Bristol Bay, Alaska, in an undated handout picture provided by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Large-scale mining in the Bristol Bay watershed poses serious risks to salmon and native cultures in this pristine corner of southwest Alaska, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said in a report. If built, it would produce 70 million tons of gold, molybdenum and copper ore a year and create a pit 1,970 feet (600 meters) deep in Alaska’s Bristol Bay watershed. “A permit denial leaves the door open for future mining in Bristol Bay under more politically favorable circumstances,” the group said in a statement. The United Tribes of Bristol Bay, which represents 15 area tribal governments, and other mine opponents said they would seek permanent protections for the region.

WASHINGTON — Democratic senators are calling on President-elect Joe Biden to use executive power to advance goals such as tackling climate change, relieving student debt and creating a more progressive immigration system. "I think President Biden has significant executive power. "From Treasury to State to Interior (departments) and the financial regulators, climate action and climate risk management has to be infused into literally everything," he said. Even if Democrats capture both Georgia seats and take control of the Senate, McConnell would retain the power to filibuster legislation and force a 60-vote threshold. Jamal Brown, a spokesman for Biden's transition team, said his agenda will include executive power.

The former surgeon general created a doctor group in 2008 to help elect Barack Obama to the White House. President-elect Joe Biden has leaned a lot on former Surgeon General Vivek Murthy for his healthcare and coronavirus planning. Dr. Vivek Murthy greets Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren before confirmation hearing for surgeon general on February 4, 2014. "HHS is a massive bureaucracy," Sen.

This Trump truth commission could investigate the White House's COVID-19 response, the government's separation of immigrant children from their parents, and the blurring of lines among Trump's governmental, political, and business interests, among other matters. Sen. Joe Manchin, a centrist-minded West Virginia Democrat, says the formation of a Trump truth commission is "a good idea." Whether a bipartisan Trump "truth commission" is created may depend on whether President-elect Joe Biden wants one.

Several Democratic senators told Insider they were either reserving judgment on whether to create a Trump truth commission — or deferring to Biden.

That means a pair of Democratic victories in Georgia would make the 100-seat Senate 50-50. Nonetheless, Luntz noted that Democratic control of the Senate would still mean that committee chairs would be considerably more liberal than Republican counterparts. Even so, Luntz said he believes it is challenging to forecast what will happen in the Georgia Senate races — especially given the prospect that Biden would ultimately win the presidential contest there. Now, however, it is a "genuine swing state," Luntz said. Among the factors that make the Georgia Senate outcomes hard to predict, according to Luntz, is the massive spending in the races.
