CDC Study Suggests Inmates Should Have Been Tested In Mass

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Correctional facilities that resisted mass coronavirus testing for inmates erred in their decision to only test inmates with symptoms, leading to large initial undercounts, a recent study by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention suggested. The study released this week examined 13 prisons and jails in California, Colorado, Ohio and Texas, and three federal prisons in states that weren’t identified. Most of the institutions waited several days or weeks before the firs...

‘Job Gains Have Slowed Considerably,’ Says Economic Policy Institute Economist

(CBS New York) — In normal times, the economy adding 1.8 million jobs and dropping the unemployment rate by almost a full percentage point would be great news.

Even with job gains over the last three months — 2.7 million more in May, 4.8 million in June — the economy is still 12.9 million jobs below its February total. The une...

California, Florida, Texas would lose House seats with Trump order

By MIKE SCHNEIDER | Associated Press ORLANDO, Fla. — If President Donald Trump succeeds in getting immigrants who are illegally in the country excluded from being counted in the redrawing of U.S. House districts, California, Florida and Texas would end up with one less congressional seat each than if every resident were counted, according to an analysis by a think tank.

Trump Goes All In On Rigging The System To Advance White Rural Political Power

President Trump’s new census memo is both a shameless power grab and an almost unbelievable Hail Mary. With the flick of his pen, he is seeking to undercut the growing political power of immigrant communities — with an approach that could boost the electoral power of whiter, red states, while diminishing the representation given to more diverse, bluer parts of the country. The policy being announced Tuesday will spark a major legal battle, and whether it is even feasible is still in doubt. Bu...
