(CNN)While outlining his plan to halt the spread of the coronavirus last week, President Joe Biden tempered his ever-present optimism with a dose of realism about the potent staying power of this deadly pandemic and the fact that the nation's vaccine distribution system is a long way from becoming an efficient machine.

Arizona Republicans voted Saturday to censure Cindy McCain and two prominent GOP members who have found themselves crosswise with former President Donald Trump.

The censures of Senator John McCain's widow, former Senator Jeff Flake and Governor Doug Ducey are merely symbolic. But they show the party's foot soldiers are focused on enforcing loyalty to Mr. Trump, even in the wake of an election that saw Arizona inch away from its staunchly Republican roots.

Party activists also reelected controversial Chairwoman Kelli Ward, who has been one of Mr...

(CNN)The Arizona Republican Party sent a clear signal Saturday that its leadership remains loyal to former President Donald Trump when it voted to publicly punish Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, former Sen.

Democrats looking to introduce bill that would offer families at least $3G per child

  • News source: Morgan Phillips
  • Replies: 0
House Democrats are working on legislation that would permanently expand the child tax credit to provide thousands per year per child to tens of millions of Americans in the form of monthly recurring payments.

Under the American Family Act, tax credits would be "fully refundable" and the IRS would send $300 monthly checks for families with a child under 6 and $250 payments for children between 6 and 17. That would amount to $3,600 per year for children under 6 and $3,000 for older children.

Reps. Suzanne Delbene, D-Wash., and Rosa DeLauro...
