    One key provision of President Joe Biden's Build Back Better plan is causing confusion amid a sustained lobbying campaign from banks both big and small — and a big signal-boost from right-wing media personalities.

    Still Gov. Gavin Newsom. As someone who spent 15.5 hours canvassing door to door to defeat the recall against California Gov. Gavin Newsom, I’ve got my happy face on tonight. Not least because it wasn’t a squeaker but showed strong support for the governor and achieved an honest to goodness trouncing of a specimen of one our nation’s plagues: right-wing talk radio hosts, the showmen of America’s political megachurches. ...
    (CNN)House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is asking the Supreme Court to overturn the House proxy voting protocols that were put in place in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

    Michael Nagle/Getty Images The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board took umbrage with the Senate on Tuesday, saying it was “sloppy” to pass a strangely-worded provision about cryptocurrency in an infrastructure bill.

    Following a six-year CBS News investigation that revealed potential safety dangers in vehicle seats, legislation aimed at increasing the federal strength standard has been included in the $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill. But its congressional backers say the proposed legislation needs to be stronger. In a series of stories that began airing in 2015, CBS News revealed that when hit...
    Legislative language buried inside the 2,700-page infrastructure bill contains language with far more than funds for roads and bridges – with sections meant to boost women in trucking, expunge harmful invasive species, and tweak the mission of Amtrak. One section in the $1.2 trillion bill notes that women make up 47 per cent of the workforce, but just 6.6 per...

    Florida’s recent education bill was met with instant praise and criticism, with supporters alleging that it was necessary in defending First Amendment rights and opponents insisting that it was potentially dangerous.

    It’s sick. So, so sick. But that’s what Republicans are all about these days: inspecting children’s genitals. It’s pretty much all they talk about—when they’re not talking about Mr. Potato Head and his starchy, androgynous genitalia.  They’re so into it, in fact, they’ve passed bills that would allow them to scrutinize any child who wants to participate in girls’ sports but doesn’t...
    As Democrats and Republicans hash out infrastructure plans, a tax deduction unrelated directly to roads, bridges, airports or other traditional infrastructure is a front and center sticking point in what's already anticipated to be a complicated negotiation process moving forward.  The state and local tax deduction cap — commonly known as SALT —  was enacted as part of President Donald...
    Arizona's attorney general "can't rely on the Biden administration" to act immediately on tax cuts without jeopardizing coronavirus relief funds, he said.
