Are you really this ill informed? FPUC has helped millions of gig workers. Because unemployment is administered by states, there have been far too many problems with delayed benefits & denied claims because people were confused by deliberately confusing systems (looking at you, Florida), but anyone who had a 1099 for gig work, or filed a Form 1040 SE is eligible.
What do you think would have happened if Pence & Congress were caught by the mob & prevented from certifying the result? It’s perfectly clear that Trump figured he’d roll the dice & maybe get the SCOTUS to rubber stamp an alternate electoral count that kept him in office. That’s a coup attempt, even if it was clownish & badly planned as everything associated with Trump.
The $1200 a month on top of state unemployment checks, plus the huge increase in ACA subsidies, the extension of the eviction moratorium, billions in funds to help people who truly can’t pay rent, an unprecedented tax credit to lift millions out of poverty…
I think you need to learn the difference between “average” & “median”.
There were other factors involved for the fired staffers, including use of harder drugs. This is bored media looking to make a story about nothing.
Absolutely no credible economist is predicting major inflation for the foreseeable future. Gas prices are up, but still below what they were in 2019.
Since Manchin’s support would be required to get rid of the filibuster, it’s unlikely he’d leave the Democrats over it.
I think what happens is some reforms go through to eliminate push-button filibustering. If Republicans dig down on preventing anything, he may come around to total elimination, but wants to appear to have tried every other option.
My question is if Tall would be pleased with a bipartisan $10 minimum wage, which is what might be achievable now. My guess is he’d blast Democrats for failing on $15.
This has to be Rall’s greatest troll of all time. The left wing of the party has been clamoring for getting rid of the filibuster for a year. Keeping the filibuster as-is guarantees more gridlock on minimum wage, infrastructure & climate change.
Cuomo has the excuse of being one of the first states to get hit hard. Other governors have done as bad or worse, despite having far more warning & information.
Serious question for Ramirez- If the mob caught AOC, do you think they would have just politely asked her to hear their concerns?
Real talk- “Since 1933, the economy has grown at an annual average rate of 4.6 percent under Democratic presidents and 2.4 percent under Republicans.”
