Update - 3/11/21 - America Rescue Plan Bill is signed!


Recommended Posts

Republicans in the past on taxation, especially when it came to the wealthy: "Why is it so complicated? Have you seen how convoluted the tax codes are? Why not make it super simple and have a flat tax?"

 

Republicans now on taxes when it comes to minimum wage increases: "Let's make poor people jump through tax hoops in order to accurately estimate their take home pay and actual income instead of just raising the minimum wage."

Soo....Hawley wants tax payers and not.....the companies that employ the workers to be responsible for increased wages? WHAT?

 

So his plan should really be called "Protect the shareholders and CEO salaries" act?

"We are the party that believes in the free market and is against government intrusion into the private sector"

 

"Government should pay for a wage increase"

GOP ever sinking to new depths of stupidity and laziness.

Education, Pelosi, Planned Parenthood, Climate. Scary **** if you're a conservative.

 

Even scarier if you don't understand math well enough to realize that's less than 1% of the bill.

The federal eviction moratorium expires in January. It could leave 40 million Americans homeless.

 

Black is one of millions on the verge of being evicted with the federal eviction moratorium set to expire at the end of January, unleashing what advocates say could be a housing catastrophe of historic proportions: Without federal intervention, they fear, as many as 40 million people could be displaced amid an ongoing and still worsening pandemic.

 

“We’re facing potentially the worst housing and homelessness crisis in our country’s history,” said Diane Yentel, CEO and president of the National Low Income Housing Coalition in Washington, D.C.

 

The eviction moratorium approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was originally set to end Dec. 31. It was expected to be extended through January by Congress under a $900 billion COVID-19 relief package that also includes offering $25 billion in emergency rental assistance – the figure requested by the National Low Income Housing Coalition in a letter submitted last week to the CDC and co-signed by 1,500 housing advocacy organizations.

They are saying a owner’s ability to evict someone who isn’t paying rent isn’t an economic activity subject to oversight by the federal government (affecting interstate commerce, which is the only way in which the federal government has jurisdiction), which I agree with, but I thought most of the eviction moratoriums were done at the the state level?

With One Move, Congress Could Lift Millions Of Children Out Of Poverty

 

The COVID-19 relief bill working its way through Congress is full of big ideas to help people. But there's one idea that's so big, it was politically unthinkable not that long ago.

 

President Biden and Democratic lawmakers want to fight child poverty by giving U.S. families a few hundred dollars every month for every child in their household — no strings attached. A kind of child allowance.

 

If this proposal survives the wrangling in Congress and makes it to Biden's desk, experts say it could cut child poverty nearly in half.

 

The idea even has some bipartisan support. Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah has pitched a smaller version of a child allowance.

 

More than 10 million of the nation's children lived below the federal poverty line in 2019, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. And the pandemic has made life even harder for those already vulnerable families.

You might be off on your memory. 🙂

 

BART opened in stages in the early 1970s.

 

Oh. Sorry. Thought they were talking about the Capitol subway. 

Although I guess my point was still valid. A subway that's been operating for 50 years is "Pelosi's subway"?

FCC approves $50 monthly internet subsidies for low-income households during pandemic

 

The Federal Communications Commission on Thursday approved final rules for a new broadband subsidy program that could help struggling families pay for internet service during the pandemic.

 

The agency's $3.2 billion Emergency Broadband Benefit Program provides eligible low-income households with up to a $50 per month credit on their internet bills through their provider until the end of the pandemic. In tribal areas, eligible households may receive up to $75 per month. The program also provides eligible households up to $100 off of one computer or tablet.
