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.

WASHINGTON—The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is facing a backlash from President Trump and Republican leaders for endorsing Democrats in 32 House races after years of reliably supporting GOP candidates. The Chamber is stuck in no man’s land, said Steve Elmendorf, a Democratic lobbyist close to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. They cheered Mr. Trump when he signed into law a large corporate tax reduction bill in 2017 and slashed costly regulations across the board. “What’s going on with endorsing all these Democrats?” Mr. Trump asked, these people recalled. Mr. Trump turned the call over to Mr. Pence, who said he knew the Chamber had typically endorsed just a handful of Democrats in prior elections.

Yet that is what we saw when Democratic and Republican House members came together and introduced legislation to enhance American workers' retirement security. The newly introduced House bill, the Securing a Strong Retirement Act of 2020, includes several proposals from the Insured Retirement Institute and others we support to help workers meet their retirement needs. The pandemic has added obstacles to workers' ability to plan and save for retirement, particularly those close to retirement age. The SECURE Act was the first step toward reversing the looming retirement crisis where too few workers are saving adequately. It also clarifies tax incentives for small-business owners to encourage them to offer a workplace retirement plan.
