The White House is giving bipartisan economic talks until the end of June for a deal to pan out. White House officials are indicating to congressional Democrats that they're giving bipartisan infrastructure negotiations until the end of June before potentially shoving Republicans aside and moving ahead with a Democratic-only plan. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment. But Biden is pursuing a deal and the White House is giving additional time for an agreement to be struck. "I got to look at it first," Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia told Insider.

In the 1996 election, Democrat Bill Clinton carried West Virginia by 15 percentage points in the presidential race. Democrat Jay Rockefeller was re-elected to his Senate seat with a stunning 77% of the vote. Republican Donald Trump won West Virginia in the presidential race by almost 40 percentage points. “The migration underscored the cultural and economic transformation of America,” Mr. Hart says. His insistence on bipartisanship, which strikes some as both naive and anachronistic, isn’t merely part of his political makeup; it’s what is required for a Democrat holding on in West Virginia.

Ron Reynolds at a rally for voting rights at the Capitol in Austin on May 8. 4, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, a narrower piece of legislation that would reinforce the Voting Rights Act of 1965, but it, too, lacks broad bipartisanship. Republican lawmakers control more of the 2021 redistricting process than Democrats, and voting rights advocates say they believe they could gerrymander a House majority in 2022. Advocates stress that challenging voting infringements and gerrymandered maps in the courts — a longtime fallback — isn't enough to protect voting rights.

McConnell took a dour view on the likelihood of a bipartisan Senate group succeeding with an infrastructure bill. Pelosi signaled she's unwilling to strike a deal with Republicans if it meant substantially cutting the package. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell provided a downbeat view on the latest roughly $1 trillion infrastructure framework negotiated by a faction of centrist senators from both parties. The plan would provide just over $1 trillion in new infrastructure spending focused on roads, bridges, ports, and highways. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also appears to be against dropping climate initiatives if it means passing a watered-down bill with the GOP.

THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE is embracing its role as a provider of government cash to low-income communities. Households will receive up to $250 a month per child between age 6 and 17 and up to $300 per child under age 6. During the pandemic, the IRS rolled out new tools for millions of low-income individuals and families to claim their stimulus checks, like allowing them to file a free, basic online form to claim the benefit. For people without direct-deposit information, the IRS used paper checks and preloaded debit cards to distribute the funds. Viatris has said it would retain a significant workforce in Morgantown, where it also has a research center.

Joe Manchin, but the White House continues to woo the West Virginia Democrat, including with the occasional dinner on his houseboat. Insider dived into the charm offensive between Washington's far-from-average Joes as infrastructure, voting rights, and the rest of Biden's agenda hang in the balance. (She previously served as secretary of education and the arts for West Virginia.) Manchin's public squabbles with progressives and occasional stiff-arming of his party only further burnish his image in a state Biden lost by nearly 40 points.

Navalny's top aide, Leonid Volkov, says Putin was "dumb" to put the opposition leader behind bars. Imprisoning Navalny has turned him into a symbol for people to rally behind, Volkov said. WASHINGTON, DC — Russian Vladimir Putin made a mistake putting Alexei Navalny in prison because it's turned him into a symbol, allowing him to attract attention worldwide, according to Leonid Volkov, the Russian opposition leader's chief of staff. Just one week before the Biden-Putin summit, Navalny's political network on Wednesday was officially outlawed in Russia after a Moscow court declared it to be "extremist." There's no reset button with Putin, Volkov said, he only understands the "language of strength."

WASHINGTON—Bipartisan policing talks in Congress hit a snag Thursday after one of the key negotiators released a proposal that ran into resistance from law-enforcement groups and at least one Republican involved in the discussions. Sen. Cory Booker (D., N.J.), one of a small group leading bipartisan negotiations, sent a draft of a proposed bill on overhauling police departments to Republicans involved in the negotiations and some police groups. They immediately raised objections to many of the provisions, people familiar with the matter said. South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, who is part of a larger group in discussion, told reporters Thursday that Mr. Booker’s proposal was a nonstarter. “The conversations we had about police reform were completely different than the document that was produced,” Mr. Graham said.

A ProPublica report showed how some of richest Americans had legally slashed their income tax bills. A GOP senator who oversaw a 2017 corporation tax cut criticized the reported tax avoidance. The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act also reduced the tax rate for the top income bracket from 39.6% to 37%. "Raising multibillionaires' income taxes isn't enough when these guys don't grow their fortunes from income," Warren tweeted Wednesday. "We need a Wealth Tax in American to help fix a tax system that's rigged for the rich and powerful."

Sen. Mitt Romney told Insider a bipartisan group is weighing indexing the gas tax to inflation. The gas tax hasn't been raised since 1993. Republicans and Democrats are eyeing a potential increase to the gas tax as both parties enter a last-ditch effort to strike a bipartisan infrastructure deal.

A group of 10 senators announced they struck an early infrastructure deal on Thursday. A bipartisan group of senators announced on Thursday evening that they had struck an early infrastructure deal, though it faces major political hurdles in the evenly-divided chamber. Democrats narrowly control the Senate with 50 votes, and any package requires 10 Republicans to clear the chamber. The package may also omit a significant chunk of climate priorities sought by many Democrats, imperiling its odds of passage. Several Senate Democrats, including Ron Wyden of Oregon, chair of Senate Finance Committee, are threatening to withhold their support from a bipartisan deal if it doesn't sufficiently combat climate change.

The Senate on Tuesday passed bipartisan legislation to boost science and technology research for the United States to better compete with China. The U.S Innovation and Competition Act, which is also known as the Endless Frontier Act, now heads to the House. The China competitiveness bill, which was authored by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Indiana Republican Sen. Todd Young, has been one of the first recent attempts at legislating using regular order. U.S. intelligence officials said in an April assessment that China is among a list of countries considered a global threat to American interests. It sets the United States on a path to lead the world in the industries of the future."

THE HIGHWAY OPTION: Democrats are creeping closer to going it alone on at least part of President Biden's massive infrastructure plan. Biden's weeks-long talks with a group led by Republican Sen. Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia collapsed on Tuesday. GOP senators involved in the group told Insider that they supported some ideas the White House previously rejected. Cassidy also ruled out any funding for caregiving in the proposal like Biden proposed, arguing that it goes beyond the scope of infrastructure.

Dr. Anthony Fauci on Wednesday lashed out at critics calling for his ouster, blasting their "preposterous" and "painfully ridiculous" attacks and defending his record as a leading official battling the coronavirus pandemic. "Attacks on me, quite frankly, are attacks on science," Fauci said in an interview with MSNBC's Chuck Todd. "If you go through each and every one of them, you can explain and debunk it immediately," Fauci said. "I haven't changed my mind," Fauci said, adding he still feels "the same way" about the lab-leak theory that he did previously. I believe it's a highly unlikely possibility, and I believe that the most important one, that you look at what scientists feel, is very likely that it was a natural origin," Fauci said.

Weeks of negotiations between the White House and Republicans failed to bring the two parties close to a deal. A White House official said they asked Republicans whether they could raise their offer by a significant amount, and they couldn’t. The White House is reviewing another bipartisan proposal from the House Problem Solvers Caucus, according to a source familiar with discussions. But questions persist about the viability of a bipartisan infrastructure plan. The bill is just one part of $4 trillion in infrastructure spending Democrats want but is expected to be the base of the House's infrastructure bill.
