Republicans in Congress started criticizing the Biden rescue plan on Friday. President-elect Joe Biden's economic rescue package is starting to run into opposition from Republicans on Capitol Hill, lessening odds of a smooth passage in Congress that the new administration is urgently seeking. Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, set to be the ranking Republican on the Senate Banking Committee, railed against the $1,400 boost to stimulus checks along with a $15 minimum wage provision. More Republicans are likely to balk at the relief plan's colossal spending levels as well as the $15 minimum wage provision. "A $15 minimum wage is a nonstarter for most Republicans even during a growing economy," Brian Riedl, a conservative budget expert at the Manhattan Institute, told Insider.

Among her new commission colleagues' first acts: voting Broussard commission chair for 2021. Then, from 2015 until this month, she's served as a staff attorney for FEC Commissioner Steven Walther, a left-leaning independent who first became a commissioner in 2006 and remains a member. "Professional, genuine, and substantive," is how Republican Lee Goodman, who served on the FEC commission from 2013 to 2018, described Broussard.

SEE NEW POSTSMcCarthy says Trump 'bears responsibility for Wednesday's attack' House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said in remarks on the House floor that Trump is to blame for last Wednesday's attack on the Capitol — but he shouldn't be impeached for it. "The president bears responsibility for Wednesday's attack on Congress by mob rioters. He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding," McCarthy said on the House floor before the impeachment vote. McCarthy, however, said he opposes impeaching Trump, suggesting the censure of the president and a bipartisan commission to investigate the events leading up to the riot might be the better options.

The National Association of Beer Wholesalers, the National Association of Auto Dealers, and the American Bankers Association said they would re-assess their contribution strategy. Other top donors, including the National Association of Homebuilders and the National Association of Realtors, said they have yet to make a decision.

Now, the fire the Republican party started is out of control and consuming our democracy. The GOP's dangerous games have inflamed supporters, demonized Democrats, sparked conspiracy theories, and burned down long-standing norms. While the Republican Party has become poisonous, praise should go to the Republicans who have put country first at our time of peril. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a lifelong Republican, facing incredible pressure from President Trump, stood firm on the validity of Biden's win in the state. Through their lies, political ploys, and norm-shattering schemes, Republicans have chipped away at our democracy for too long.

On Thursday, the Chinese Embassy in the US posted a tweet claiming that Uighur women were no longer "baby-making machines" because of the eradication of extremism. The tweet, posted on Thursday, drew widespread condemnation for claiming that Uighur women have had their minds "emancipated" and are no longer "baby-making machines." Uighur women are regularly subjected to pregnancy checks, unwanted IUD devices, forced abortions, and sterilization, the news agency also reported. The article's implication that Uighur women are now more "confident and independent" was condemned by several high profile figures. Although the Chinese Embassy tweet has since been removed, the article remains on China Daily's Twitter feed.

Puerto Rican military veterans known as the Borinqueneers are getting their own national day after Congress approved the National Defense Authorization Act during an unprecedented vote that overrode President Donald Trump's veto of the sweeping military policy bill. "With the vote of the U.S. Senate to override the veto of the President to the National Defense Authorization Act, our legislation is already Law to designate April 13 as National Day of Borinqueneers!!!! April 13 marks the day in which the members of the Borinqueneers received Congressional Gold Medal back in 2016. The National Borinqueneers Day also seeks to "pay tribute to the sacrifices made and adversities overcome by Puerto Rican and Hispanic members of the Armed Forces" as well as "recognize the significant contributions to United States history made by the Borinqueneers," the law reads. González, a Republican, led an effort in the House alongside Democratic Rep. Stephanie Murphy of Florida to commemorate the Borinqueneers with a national day.

Republican lawmakers expressed their outrage that recovering drug addicts are being prioritized over some senior citizens and healthcare workers. Andrew Cuomo revealed in a press conference that recovering drug addicts would be among those in New York vaccinated against COVID-19 this week.

We expect to open to ambulatory care health workers, public-facing public health workers," he continued.

Shana Broussard in December became the first Black commissioner in the Federal Election Commission's 45-year history. And this month, in the most notable step of her public legal service career, Broussard, a Democrat, became the first Black commissioner in the Federal Election Commission's 45-year history. Among her new commission colleagues' first acts: voting Broussard commission chair for 2021. "Professional, genuine, and substantive," is how Republican Lee Goodman, who served on the FEC commission from 2013 to 2018, described Broussard. Broussard's interest established, Schumer asked the White House that President Donald Trump consider nominating Broussard to a vacant FEC commissioner slot.

President-elect Joe Biden is starting to lay out a blueprint for another pandemic aid package. The measures Biden indicated support for included more stimulus checks, public health funds, and enhanced unemployment insurance. But his ambitions will collide with Senate Republicans who may not be inclined to back more aid spending. In a speech on Tuesday, Biden started laying out his priorities for another rescue package after he is sworn in on January 20. But the drive to secure another aid package is all but guaranteed to collide with Senate Republicans, who may not be inclined to back a large round of emergency spending.

TikTok routes job applicants' personal data through China, but doesn't always tell people, Business Insider reported this week. TikTok has said it will halt sending applicant data to China, and said again that it does not store app user data in China. Lawmakers in the UK and US have reacted with alarm to the news that TikTok routes job applicants' data to China while only disclosing it in certain jurisdictions. "Their understanding of privacy and personal data is woeful and raises many questions about every other piece of data shared with them." There is no evidence that TikTok sends app users' personal data to China, something its critics have long feared.

Even during a once-a-century disaster Republicans can't help but fetishize the determination of who in America does and does not deserve help from the federal government. If there was ever a time to put moralizing aside and use good old common sense, it's now, but some Republicans can't do that. Scott doesn't want to help states that don't share his values because values, he thinks, are what make Americans worthy of help. These are the facts but Republicans don't like fiscal facts, they like fiscal feelings. Even during a once-a-century disaster they can't help but fetishize the act of choosing which Americans deserve to be taken care of, and which do not.

Lawmakers working to pass a coronavirus-aid bill face two sticking points: aid for state and local governments and liability protections. “But when you get up against the deadline, my guess is something breaks.”Sen. Josh Hawley (R., Mo.) The procedural debate on keeping the government funded comes as lawmakers are still seeking to craft a $908 billion coronavirus-relief bill. The bipartisan group has largely resolved the issue of how to distribute state and local funding, aides said, another longstanding sticking point in the talks. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin had earlier this week proposed a $916 billion offer to Mrs. Pelosi, which included both state and local funding and liability protections.

The Senate had only hours to prevent a government shutdown Friday as lawmakers threatened to hold up swift passage of a spending bill. Lawmakers hope the bill will give them more time to strike elusive full-year funding and coronavirus relief deals. Rick Scott of Florida and Mike Braun of Indiana want to tie a bill to end government shutdowns to the one-week funding measure. It is unclear now whether any of the lawmakers will actually delay the spending bill's passage and let funding lapse. The Senate cleared one potential hurdle when Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., told reporters he would not hold up the appropriations bill.

Democratic U.S. presidential nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden speaks during a campaign stop in Atlanta, Georgia, October 27, 2020. Following November's election, the initial makeup of the Senate is 50 Republicans, 46 Democrats and two independents who caucus with the Democrats. With 51 votes in the Senate, Biden could realistically hope to enact some of his most sweeping (and expensive) domestic policy proposals, including a massive green jobs program. The Biden campaign has not yet released the details of Tuesday's event, but during the final weeks of the presidential campaign Biden held drive-in rallies which attracted large crowds and kept people at a safe distance from one another. And you say, 'Well, we're not going to [vote],'" Trump said.
