A bipartisan group of lawmakers is taking another stab at breaking the gridlock over a coronavirus relief package. GOP Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana said that bill was "less of an emergency but also important." Sen. Joe Manchin prepares to speak alongside his colleagues on their $908 billion relief legislation. Another $16 billion would help states test and track down people with the coronavirus, and help them distribute the vaccine to their residents. It's still possible that senators could vote to include an amendment for a round of checks, but they won't be in the bipartisan bill, Gottheimer told Insider.

Representative Jim Jordan, an Ohio Republican, warned: “They tried to cancel Thanksgiving. The pandemic has kept us apart — out of school, out of work, away from one another. The worst thing that one of the would-be Bravehearts might face is a stern talking-to or public shaming by their neighbors. Keeping Christmas small, staying home instead of traveling, seeing Grandma and Grandpa on a screen instead of in person is not religious persecution. I’ve celebrated a Zoom Seder and a Zoom Thanksgiving and I’m preparing for a Zoom Hanukkah.

Rob Portman told CNBC on Tuesday that he's participating in Johnson & Johnson's Covid-19 vaccine clinical trial, hoping to underscore the importance of vaccines in ending the pandemic. "So the reason I participated in this trial was because I think the vaccines are so important." Data from both the Pfizer and Moderna late-stage trials indicated that vaccines were more than 90% effective in preventing Covid-19. These are scientists that are taking extraordinary measures to be sure that it's safe," Portman said. Portman said that he feels "great" so far after enrolling in the trial, although he noted he is not sure whether he received the vaccine or a placebo.

On already unfair maps, Democrats lost key state and local elections. The 2020 election likely cemented another decade of GOP minority rule. With such a strong performance at the top of the ticket, Kansas Democrats had hoped to gain at least one seat in the State House. More important than the presidential race, Democrats had a chance to capture the Texas State House. Instead of serving as a progressive victory, the 2020 election likely cemented Republican minority rule for the foreseeable future.
