America's massive unpaid rent problem could have been avoided if every unemployed person received federal UI benefits and $1,200 stimulus, study says

Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images New research from the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia shows that had every unemployed American received the extra $600 per week in unemployment insurance payments, on top of stimulus, then just 125,000 households would be behind on their rental payments by December. This research comes as millions of Americans could face eviction when the national moratorium implemented by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention expires at the end of 2020. Even...

Voting by mail? Most Californians have preferred it over in-person voting for years

In the dramatic midterm elections of 2018, when the fate of the House and Senate hung in the balance and a new governor was about to be enthroned, two of every three votes tallied in California were cast via mail-in ballots rather than by in-person voting —even in the absence of a deadly pandemic. By-mail voting has long played a dominant role in Golden State democracy, so the ballot-in-every-mailbox experiment currently underway is not so much revolution as evolution. But understanding the part...

Census takers fall short of target goal in US count

By Mike Schneider | Associated Press From tribal lands in Arizona and New Mexico to storm-battered Louisiana, census workers who go door to door were unable to reach all the households they needed for a complete tally of the U.S. population, a count that ended abruptly last week after a Supreme Court ruling. Community activists, statisticians and civil rights groups say racial and ethnic minorities are historically undercounted, and shortcomings in the 2020 census could set the course of life in...

How Texas could be the linchpin in finally dismantling the Electoral College

A little over a week from Election Day "and everyone with bated breath," columnist Peggy Noonan writes in Friday's Wall Street Journal. Whoever wins, "the changes in how we vote, from early voting to voting by mail, all hastened by the pandemic, will have been established after this election, and won’t go away. This will make things appear more democratic and may leave them more Democratic. Progressive preoccupation with the Electoral College is about to diminish, sharply."No, Republicans sh...

Trump’s Last Hurrah Was Saturated With Racist Appeals

The President answered a question about his history of racism at Thursday night’s presidential debate by telling moderator Kristen Welker, whose mother is Black, “I am the least racist person in this room.”  “I can’t even see the audience because it’s so dark, but I don’t care,” he added.  It was a characteristic bit of wind, but also representative of Trump’s strategy for years: Demonize immigrants, call Black athletes protesting for civil rights sons of bitches — and then simply ig...

Two men whose fates differed under Trump

Rachel Vindman's CNN interview on Monday was a tour de force of grace, courage and patriotism. After her husband, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, testified during the House impeachment hearings in October 2019, the Vindmans became the target of vile threats and thuggish retaliation that no American family should have to endure. The most vocal detractor was President Donald Trump, who took aim at Vindman for daring to speak up. In the year since the impeachment hearings, the Vindman family ...
