White House mulls executive action on gun control as legislation stalls in Senate
"And Wilmington, Delaware as he weighs whether to take executive action on Gun control. NPR's Windsor Johnston reports, Biden and several congressional Democrats are renewing their push for stricter measures following the mass shootings in Colorado and Georgia. President Biden is ramping up the pressure on the Senate to take up two measures passed by the House that would strengthen and expand background checks for gun sales. The legislation faces an uphill climb in the deeply divided chamber. It would need the support of at least 10 Republicans to overcome a filibuster. It's also received some pushback from some moderate Senate Democrats. The White House on Friday said Biden is prepared to take executive action to tighten gun control measures. Press secretary Jen Psaki did not offer an exact time frame on when those orders would move off of the president's desk. Windsor Johnston. NPR
Florida Senate Democrats Lay Plans for Higher Taxes for State Residents
"Three minutes, Lawmakers in the Florida Senate moving forward on a plan to replenish the state's drained unemployment fund by raising taxes on ordinary Floridians. The plan would shift the burden from corporations and businesses to residents who shopped online. If the bill becomes law, a sales tax would be collected from online sales. Normally, companies would pay a per employee tax to fund the unemployment system. Some Democrats are calling it another corporate bailout of Republicans say it helps prevent a big tax hike on companies caused by the huge unemployment claims during the pandemic.

Biden prepared to chuck filibuster in historic push to re-engineer America, quickly
"People close to bind. Tell us he's feeling bullish on what he can accomplish. Fully prepared to support the dashing of the senate filibuster rule to allow democrats pass voting rights and other trophy legislation. I party and i just read to you what it is. It's not voting rights. But until the day i die. That's what i call it. Voting reform voting rights. It's funny how tyranny is labeled with the word reform and rights. Isn't it the agenda. That biden wants to enact includes a crackdown on the second amendment passing a highly controversial election bill and a radical climate agenda. The report says the biden reportedly loves the media generated narrative that he's boulder and bigger thinking than president obama. What did i tell you. White house press secretary. Jen pisarski said this week. That biden is in regular contact with former president obama to consult with him on a wide range of issues. The news that biden are reportedly supports ending the filibuster notice. He wouldn't say during the campaign comes. After biden recently said this month that he only supported making changes to the filibuster not eliminating the man does not have an ounce of integrity. Ladies and gentlemen he never has those of us who've been watching him for decades we know what he is. He's called a sleazeball. The week before biden said he supported making changes to the filibuster the white house signal that he did not support making changes to it during the campaign biden stated that he did not support a limiting the filibuster because doing so quote racist problems that are more damaging than the problems that exist that now he wants to eliminate the push for senate democrats to eliminate the filibuster is reportedly being led by a massive far left.

Bill is back to make Washington, DC 51st state — still faces high hurdle in Senate
"The license plates for D C. Residents read in big, bold letters and taxation without representation. It's a rallying cry against D. C is the lack of direct voting power in the U. S. Congress as NPR's Barbara Sprint reports. Statehood advocates are hopeful that what was once seen as a liberal pipe dream is now gaining traction. 30 years ago, delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton first introduced a bill for Washington D. C. Statehood. She's back at it, and this time, she says, it feels different. We've gotten off of the wish list, too. On approach of a new reality. Norton says she's encouraged by national polls that suggest growing support for statehood and the record number of co sponsors. The House legislation and its Senate counterpart, have Her bill, which strength the size of the federal district and admit the remaining area as the nation's 51st state. But Republicans stand universally opposed, arguing it would take a constitutional amendment to admit D. C as a state. Here's Georgia Congressman Jody Hice during today's House oversight hearing, the Democratic Party attempting a political power grab of obtaining more senators, that's entirely what this is all about. That phrase power grab is a constant and GOP messaging on statehood, referring to the fact that the district votes overwhelmingly for Democrats and would likely elect two Democratic senators. But Norton tells NPR that at its core statehood is not about politics while we're looking for is equality with other Americans, especially since we pay the highest federal taxes per capita in the United States, she notes that D C has a population of over 700,000 residents larger than Wyoming and Vermont. Last year when the House first past Norton's bill, Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas, dismissed that point. Wyoming is a well rounded working class state. New state of Washington would not be. It was a barb that stung many residents in the district, including business owner Deana Dorsey Calloway. You can't see me, but I'm having an emotional reaction. The eyes are watering probably hear my voice quivering of it, because Just it's disgusting. It's you're a sure of an entire population of people here in Washington, advocates argue statehood is also a civil rights issue, as most of DC's residents are minorities. We do believe this is one of the most important racial justice fights of our time that stash a Rhodes, campaign manager of 51 for 51, a statehood campaign from our perspective, leaving 700,000 mostly black and brown residents without a vote in Congress is racism. D C. Residents pay federal taxes and serve in the military but have no voting Congress. This is an injustice and honestly a stain on American democracy. Norton's bill is all but guaranteed passage in the House. There's broad support from Democrats in the Senate and the White House. But there's a road block. The Senate has a big brick wall in front of its called the Filibusters that house bills are passing and slamming right into. That's Ellie's up Nick of Fix our Senate, a campaign focused on eliminating the legislative filibuster, which requires a 60 senator threshold to advance most bills. Not all Senate Democrats are on board with eliminating the maneuver, arguing it's meant to protect the minority party. But unless that brick wall is eliminated or changed, D C statehood goes back to being on the Democratic wish list.

Explaining the Income Cap for Stimulus Checks in New COVID-19 Relief Bill
"Because of this pandemic, we got this message from Ma on Facebook, who says, I read that by changing the eligibility requirement and the cut offs for stimulus checks. 17 million families will lose access to these payments. Is this true? If so, how did Democrats justify it? When many campaigned on vote for us and you get $2000? Take Leah explain a little bit more about about the cut offs here and who loses access to these payments as a result. Yeah, it is true, But there's a lot of Democrats who didn't who didn't want that income cap to be reduced, But this was one of the compromises. It had to be made to get some of these moderate Democrats on board to ensure passage of this bill, especially in the Senate. So how it was originally proposed, is if you made $199,000 well, let me just start back with the first bill where the first direct stimulus checks If you made $199,000 or less. If you were a couple, you would receive a few $100 in a direct stimulus check because it would start to phase down after $150,000 for a couple Um, in the House version of this latest bill that passed they faced the phase out was actually more quick done more quickly than it was in the first covert bill. So if you made $200,000 you would get $0.199,000 $0. Now with the senator's did is they phase that out? Much quicker, Andy, if you make $160,000 for a couple $80,000 as an individual $112,000 if you are a head of household That is when the cap cuts off. So these higher income people will not receive a stimulus check if you did last time. So if you make $161,000 as a couple Excuse me, 100. Yes, $161,000 is a couple You will not get your stimulus check, even though last time you did get a stimulus check, And that was just the compromise that had to be made to make sure that all 50 Senate Democrats were on board and would pass this legislation. I want to circle back to something. We got this tweet from Jennifer, who says, been discussing the stimulus payments? No one ever mentions that could offer those filing head of household. This Fallon is what a lot of single parents use, including myself, LeeAnn to say one more time. What that cut off is for people filing head of household. That cut off his 112,000. And I believe $500 s O that is head of household. So remember these stimulus checks also include dependence is well, it's $1400. Not only for the parents or how to head of household or the single adult but also for chill dependence, Children as well. But it is $112,000 for head of
A Look Inside The COVID-19 relief bill Passed By Senate
"The senate passed a one point nine trillion dollar covid nineteen relief. Bill here's what senate by elena abramson the senate on saturday afternoon narrowly passed a one point nine trillion dollar cove nineteen relief package a key milestone for president joe biden to ink his first legislative priority into law the avalanche of federal dollars which clock in at approximately nine percent of the country's gross domestic product includes fourteen hundred dollar checks for middle and lower income.

Making up to one hundred. Fifty thousand dollars per year are eligible to receive a fourteen hundred dollar check individuals. Earning between seventy five thousand and eighty thousand dollars and couples. Earning between one hundred fifty thousand dollars. One hundred sixty thousand dollars will receive some of that money but not the full amount. The eligibility thresholds are a change from the house's initial version which kept the threshold at one hundred thousand dollars for individuals and two hundred thousand dollars for couples senate. Democrats lowered the eligibility for the stimulus checks to get all democrats onboard after resistance from some moderates in their party. The decision means that an estimated seventeen million americans who received a check under former president. Donald trump won't get one under biden. According to a study from a nonpartisan institute on taxation and economic policy biden said on saturday that the government will begin sending the checks to eligible americans. This month extended unemployment insurance current federal unemployment benefits. Which a lot an additional three hundred dollars per week on top of state benefits are set to expire on march fourteenth. The senate bill extends the program through september sixth at three hundred dollars per week for households. Earning under one hundred fifty thousand dollars. The first ten thousand two hundred dollars of the unemployment benefits are non taxable to prevent surprise billing at the end of the year. These were also changes from the house version of the bill which provided four hundred dollars per week through all twenty ninth.

According to a democratic aide expanded tax credits for families. The bill raises the child tax credit for most families in the coming year by one thousand dollars to three thousand dollars per child. It's even more for families with young children. Many can receive credit of three thousand six hundred dollars for each child under age six. All of these credits are fully refundable and some researchers say these measures could potentially help cut child poverty and half funding for state and local governments and public schools. The bill delivers a three hundred fifty billion dollar cash infusion to state and local governments and one hundred thirty billion dollars to elementary middle and high schools to help them reopen safely. Local budgets have faced steep declines in revenue as businesses remain shuttered during the pandemic last september. The brookings institute estimated that state and local revenues would decline by one hundred fifty five billion dollars in twenty twenty one hundred sixty seven billion dollars in twenty twenty one and one hundred forty five billion dollars in twenty twenty two. The money for schools is designed to help them improve their ventilation systems. Hire more janitors and reduced class sizes to conform with social distancing protocols. Democrats argued that this money was necessary to save public sector jobs and enable teachers and students to return to classrooms without risking their health. Republicans said that the funding already allocated through. Last year's relief bills was sufficient and that sending more money the state and local governments was superfluous relief for restaurants. The bill includes traditional fifty billion dollars in assistance for small businesses including more than seven billion dollars for the troubled payment protection program and a break from previous relief packages. This bill provides twenty eight point. Six billion dollars in grant relief specifically for restaurants which have been particularly decimated by the pandemic
