States Are Ignoring New Data Showing How To Halt COVID Spread

States Are Ignoring New Data Showing How To Halt COVID Spread

Facing a virulent new strain of coronavirus, California’s pandemic outbreak is so out of control that public officials have had to lift air pollution regulations in order to accomodate a spike in cremations. Meanwhile, public opinion data shows widespread support for keeping businesses closed to halt the outbreak. In response to the emergency, Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom is lifting stay-at-home restrictions, removing essential workers from the state’s vaccine priority list, and championing a complex deal that extends the state’s expiring partial eviction moratorium but still allows...

Six Takeaways From Election Night

Six Takeaways From Election Night

SubscribeThis report was written by David Sirota, Andrew Perez and Julia RockAs the country awaits the final results of the presidential election, there are already six key lessons to be gleaned from election, campaign finance and public opinion data. The Democratic ticket pretty much ran away from economic issues — sure, it had decent position papers, but economic transformation was not a huge part of its public messaging, and that failure buoyed Trump, according to from Edison Research. Trump won 81 percent of the vote among the third of the electorate that listed the economy as its top...

“I Feel The World Is Turning A Blind Eye”

SubscribeThis report was written by Walker Bragman.Congress is scrutinizing President Joe Biden’s policy on Yemen this week, with House and Senate subcommittees hosting hearings on the crisis in the Arab state. During Wednesday’s House hearing, Tim Lenderking, the Biden administration’s special envoy to Yemen, described the situation in stark terms. “The level of suffering there,” he told lawmakers, “is unimaginable.” Half a world away, Fatik Al-Rodaini can imagine the suffering.

The American Rescue Plan’s Money Cannon Is Great, But Not Enough

The American Rescue Plan’s Money Cannon Is Great, But Not Enough

SubscribeThis report was written by David Sirota, Julia Rock, and Andrew Perez.When Joe Biden signs the American Rescue Plan (ARP) he will prove that the Democratic Party is finally willing — at least for a moment — to turn on the money hose and for once aim it not at Wall Street moguls, but instead at the raging wildfire of poverty and desperation incinerating the poor and middle class. That’s the very good news. The bad news is that the party’s COVID-19 relief bill also indicates that Biden might have been serious when he promised a room full of wealthy donors that about the...

SCOOP: Stimulus Bill Bails Out Defense Contractors, Denies Direct Payments to Families

Earlier this year, Republican senators slammed the idea of spending money to pay Americans not to work during the pandemic. Only a few months later, a group of GOP senators has signed onto bipartisan stimulus legislation that would authorize the government to pay idle defense contractors to not work, even as those contractors’ rack up big profits during the pandemic.
