"I objected and continue to object to the fact that the single largest part of this bill is a $275 billion tax giveaway to millionaires and the wealthy. Regardless of the net tax change, there’s no excuse for that provision being in this bill," Golden said on Twitter. The change would mainly benefit wealthy taxpayers in coastal states that are heavily Democratic. The SALT cap was imposed under a tax reform law enacted in 2017 when Republicans controlled Congress and fellow Republican Donald Trump was president. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is aiming to pass Biden's domestic investment bill by the end of this year.

Gosar, a staunch Trump ally and hardline conservative, rejected accusations that the video was "dangerous or threatening." Democrats say the action is necessary because House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy has refused to discipline Gosar. A censure is a symbolic reprimand that carries no fines or other penaltiesHouse Republican leaders recommended but did not require their members vote no on the motion. The Republican leader repeatedly described Democrats' actions as "rules for thee but not for me" in arguing against the motion on the House floor.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) speaks to reporters following the Senate Democrats weekly policy lunch at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, U.S., November 16, 2021. REUTERS/Elizabeth Frantz/File PhotoWASHINGTON, Nov 16 (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Democratic Majority Leader Chuck Schumer's plan to attach a measure to boost U.S. competitiveness with China to a massive defense policy bill faces new hurdles in Congress. Schumer said Tuesday he hopes to include USICA as part of the annual National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that will be put on the Senate floor Wednesday. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said Tuesday he thinks the House should pass its own version of USICA first "and then we can have a conference with the Senate." Once the Senate approves its version of NDAA, Senate and House negotiators will work on a compromise.

The comments came ahead of a Wednesday vote to censure Gosar after he posted the video on November 7.

“Not talking,” Gosar told reporters on Tuesday. Gosar also told Republicans at a closed-door meeting earlier on Tuesday that he does not condone violence, Cole said. House Democrats stripped firebrand Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene here of her committee assignments this year for incendiary remarks that included support for violence against Democrats.

China is easing restrictions on foreign ownership of financial services firms because it agreed to do so as part of a trade agreement with the Trump administration. But the country could just as easily bar those firms, said Dick Bove, a veteran banking analyst at Odeon Capital Group. China was America’s largest trading partner for goods last year, with $559.2 billion in goods changing hands between the two nations, according to the Office of the United States Trade Representative. President Biden is scheduled to hold a virtual summit with President Xi Jinping of China on Monday amid friction over trade, cyberthreats and Taiwan, among other issues. Mr. Xi’s “common prosperity” initiative to address the country’s wealth gap, which has put many homegrown tycoons on notice, is also worrisome to foreign companies.

Former Trump advisor Steve Bannon surrendered Monday to federal authorities in Washington, D.C., where he faces criminal charges after defying a subpoena from the lawmakers investigating the deadly Capitol invasion. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., another committee member, on Sunday said a criminal contempt referral for Meadows is already in the works. Bannon was a senior White House advisor during the first seven months of Trump's single term in office. He was fired by Trump years before the 2020 presidential election and the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, which is the subject of the select committee's investigation. The select committee shortly thereafter sent a contempt resolution to the full House of Representatives, which voted 229-209 to hold Bannon in contempt.

Democrat Beto O'Rourke is running for governor of Texas, pursuing a blue breakthrough in America's biggest red state after his star-making U.S. Senate campaign in 2018 put him closer than anyone else in decades. In one pronouncement heard far and wide in firearm-friendly Texas, O'Rourke declared: "Hell, yes, we're gonna take your AR-15." Still, the Texas governor enters the race with a $55 million campaign war chest, the biggest of any incumbent governor in the country. "The last thing Texans need is President Biden's radical liberal agenda coming to Texas under the guise of Beto O'Rourke," Abbott spokesman Mark Miner said following O'Rourke's announcement.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States said on Friday it will open talks with Japan that could lead to an easing of tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, a longstanding irritant in trade relations between the two allies. Slideshow ( 2 images )The U.S. Commerce Department and the United States Trade Representative’s Office said the talks were aimed at addressing “global steel and aluminum excess capacity”, restoring market-oriented conditions and preserving critical industries. Japan last week asked the United States to abolish the “Section 232” tariffs imposed by former U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration in 2018. The U.S.-EU deal ended a festering dispute over the Trump-era U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs and averted a spike in EU retaliatory tariffs. The agreement maintains Section 232 tariffs of 25% on steel and 10% aluminum, while allowing “limited volumes” of EU-produced metals into the United States duty-free.
