WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden predicted that Republicans would have an "epiphany" after President Donald Trump lost. The GOP response to the election is an ominous sign for Biden's pitch to usher in a new era of unity and bipartisanship. 'A great, great epiphany'On the campaign trail last year, Biden repeatedly promised a GOP "epiphany" after Trump was out of the way. Trump's groundless claims of widespread fraud and a "rigged election" appear to have taken root inside his party. That has prevented the sort of blowout election that Biden and the Democrats were counting on to crush the remnants of Trumpism in his party.

CARES Act unemploymentCollectively, more than half of the roughly 20.5 million total workers on state and federal unemployment rolls would lose their benefits if these programs expire. Some Republican senators seem to want to extend some of the existing unemployment programs. However, many states have stopped paying these extended benefits, which typically amount to 13 or 20 extra weeks, in recent months. More than 411,000 workers in 17 states won't be able to collect extended benefits because of this, according to a CNBC analysis of Labor Department figures.

PARIS (Reuters) - European regulators on Tuesday began the timetable for a return of the Boeing 737 MAX to Europe’s skies early next year after an almost two-year flight ban caused by fatal crashes. FILE PHOTO: Grounded Boeing 737 MAX aircraft are seen parked at Boeing facilities at Grant County International Airport in Moses Lake, Washington, U.S. November 17, 2020. How long it takes for flights to resume in Europe depends on pilot training and the amount of time airlines need to upgrade MCAS software and carry out other actions mandated by EASA. Some regulators have been waiting for EASA’s decision before lifting their own measures as the 20-month Boeing safety crisis tested confidence in U.S. aviation leadership. EASA represents the 27 European Union countries plus four other nations including Norway, which has 92 of the aircraft on order.

It has sent members of Trump's party scrambling to find a path for the defense bill, which outlines military policy and funding, and put them on a collision course with Democrats. The effort to change the names of military bases honoring Confederate military leaders has been a target for Trump for months. In July, Trump tweeted that he would veto the measure if it includes an amendment that renames bases. "I will Veto the Defense Authorization Bill if the Elizabeth 'Pocahantas' Warren (of all people!) of Fort Bragg, Fort Robert E.

Thomas TolstrupFor Americans who have had a tough year financially amid Covid-19, a second set of $1,200 stimulus checks would provide some much welcome relief. In addition, the economists call stimulus checks an "essential tool" for preventing poverty from increasing more. They also cite research from the Urban Institute, which found that two additional stimulus checks could help keep about 14 million people out of poverty. The legislation included additional $1,200 stimulus checks. The proposal includes $1,200 stimulus checks, but with more generous terms than the first set.

Joe Biden's transition team denied Monday that the president-elect's advisors have pushed Democratic congressional leaders to potentially accept a smaller coronavirus stimulus package in order to send more relief now. Both sides have yielded no ground as Republicans push for about $500 billion in spending — far less than what Democrats want. Lawmakers would face a challenge in reaching a stimulus compromise before Biden takes office on Jan. 20.

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.
