Austan Goolsbee, a former top economic advisor under President Barack Obama, said congressional Democrats should pass a relief plan now and seek a larger one later. "So if they have to accept half a loaf, then they should take half a loaf, and then let's try to get another half of a loaf," Goolsbee told CNN's Manu Raju. Congress has been gridlocked on another relief plan since the spring, and Democrats have wanted a larger package for months. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump has taken a backseat on the next relief package, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell taking the lead among Republicans. On Sunday, Trump gave his first interview since the election to Fox News and didn't bring up passing a coronavirus aid plan.

As we careen toward the holidays and a record number of COVID-19 cases and fatalities, the GOP's opposition to health mandates is increasingly dangerous. Republicans stand alone in their extremist position that people will abide by health recommendations even in the absence of mandates. As we careen toward the holidays with record numbers of cases and uncontrolled spread across the US, the GOP's continued opposition to state-imposed limitations on social gatherings is now just a gruesome spectacle. Republican's opposition to "authoritarianism" is notably only for a specific brand of power - namely authority that they've branded as "socialist." In early October, thanks to a lawsuit brought by Republican legislators in Michigan, the Michigan Supreme Court struck down all of Gov.

Fat shaming Trump has been widely accepted and popular among progressives and liberals for years. Fat shaming doesn't harm Trump, but rather average fat people, who internalize public fat-shaming and get the message that their body is a subject of ridicule and should be a source of shame. Donald Trump will go down in history as one of the most inept and harmful presidents in history. It was entirely unnecessary to reference Trump's weight to comment on how anti-democratic and dangerous his misinformation campaign is. It's because I want all body-shaming to stop, because its psychological effects are much more harmful for fat people than being fat is.

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.

LONDON — European stocks closed slightly lower on Thursday as investors digested uncertainty over U.S. coronavirus stimulus, new consumer data and a raft of corporate earnings. Later in the session, a flash estimate from the European Commission showed euro zone consumer confidence falling 1.6 points in October, to -15.5. U.S. stimulus talks remain in focus for global markets with uncertainty over whether a deal can be reached before the Nov. 3 presidential election. However, comments on stimulus talks from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's deputy chief of staff, Drew Hammill, offered some room for optimism Wednesday. On Wall Street, the major stock indexes were mostly lower as traders weighed the latest developments surrounding stimulus negotiations.
