    MSNBC contributor Claire McCaskill said Tuesday on “Deadline” that she found it “incredibly depressing” that so many Americans have been “fooled” by former President Donald Trump. Discussing President Joe Biden’s campaign, McCaskill said, “I think he’s trying to do what Liz Cheney did with the January 6 Committee, and that is to escape the drip, drip, drip of depressing facts about what has happened in America and elevate the conversation to something much bigger, much broader, much more important, and that’s our values.”

    It’s not just low-income Americans drowning under inflation and interest rates — some higher-income folks are feeling the strain on their wallets as well. Data from a June survey conducted by personal finance software company Quicken revealed that 32% of Americans earning at least $150,000 a year are currently living paycheck to paycheck, while 36% of folks earning $50,000 to $150,000 and 55% of households earning less than that reported the same.

    President Joe Biden is projected to hugely boost the foreign-born workforce in the United States, adding about half a million to fill American jobs while tens of millions of Americans remain out of the labor market entirely. Analysis from Goldman Sachs economists projects Biden’s ramping up the nation’s legal immigration system — which brings more than a million foreign nationals to the United States on green cards annually in addition to another million on temporary work visas — will add about 500,000 foreign workers to the workforce by mid-June of next year.

    On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Katy Tur Reports,” White House Council of Economic Advisers Chair Jared Bernstein responded to a majority of Americans saying they’re living paycheck-to-paycheck and those who aren’t feeling the economy improving by acknowledging that “it’s early days for those wage gains,” and so he’s “very sympathetic to the idea that people need to see them continue, and I think if the job market stays tight, they will.” Guest host Alex Witt asked, “[A]s you know, a majority of Americans still say they are living paycheck-to-paycheck. So, what is the message to those people who don’t really...

    Nearly half of Americans opine in a recent survey that they would avoid a store — any store, apparently — that doesn’t have a drive-thru. The finding comes from Dutch Bros, a beloved drive-thru coffee chain based in Oregon. The Bros commissioned a random survey of 2,000 Americans in July by the market researcher OnePoll. Americans love a drive-thru, and the pandemic seems to have sweetened their taste for takeout. Much of the nation migrated to pickup and delivery in the peak months of COVID-19, and surveys suggest the preference endures. The Dutch Bros poll found that customers favor the...

    On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen responded to poor polling numbers on the economy and President Joe Biden’s handling of the economy by stating that people tell pollsters they’re happy about their own financial situation and “So, they seem to perceive the economy as a whole as doing less well than they are personally. But most Americans feel good about their own economic situation.” Host Erin Burnett asked, “The latest CNN poll, Secretary Yellen, shows that 75% of Americans believe the economy is in poor condition, and maybe that’s because, again, even though inflation rates have...

    The Department of Justice is shelling out more than $6 billion to private companies to manage its asset forfeiture investigations, raising alarm from one nonprofit law firm that accuses police of "treating ordinary Americans like ATMs" and seizing their cash. "You've probably heard the adage, 'You've gotta spend money to make money.' Here, it's 'You've gotta spend money to take money,'" said Dan Alban, head of the Institute for Justice's National Initiative to End Forfeiture.

    Most Americans in a new poll said they would take candidates’ abortion policies into consideration before voting them into public office.

Another 16 percent said they do not see abortion as a major issue that would affect how they cast their ballot, according to the poll. The survey also found that Americans hold largely...

    It’s not just Hunter. Most Americans believe the Biden administration’s ethical standards are “not good” or “poor,” according to a new national poll released Thursday. A majority of US adults (55%) surveyed by Gallup throughout July gave top White House officials a negative ethics rating — the lowest of any administration in recent history with the exception of former President Donald Trump. The poll showed 42% of respondents gave the Biden administration a positive ethics rating, with 34% calling the current standards “good” and 8% calling them “excellent.” Trump officials had the lowest ethics ratings of any presidential administration on...

    Most Americans say their paycheck is failing to keep up with inflation in the “struggling” economy, a CBS News/YouGov survey released over the weekend found. The survey found just 13 percent asserting that they are “getting ahead” financially in the Biden economy, compared to 52 percent who said they are “staying in the same place.” However, over one-third, 35 percent, said they are “falling behind.” When asked if their income is keeping up with inflation, most working respondents — 70 percent — said “no it isn’t,” compared to 30 percent who said it is.

    Black Americans are under attack, members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) said Thursday, arguing that a slew of efforts from Republicans across the country are an assault on their rights. “Black people are under attack in America, but we are not victims and we are not powerless,” CBC Chairman and Rep. Steven Horsford (D-Nev.) said at a Thursday press event from the Capitol. “Our fundamental rights are under assault and our very history is being denied. But we will not stand by quietly as it happens. We will never give up when so many people are counting on us...

  • More than 40M Americans living in cities experience ‘heat islands’: study

    The Hill ^ | 07/26/2023 | ZACK BUDRYK
    More than 40 million Americans in cities live with the impact of the “heat island” effect, in which city centers absorb more heat than surrounding areas, according to an analysis published Wednesday by the organization Climate Central. Cities are particularly susceptible to the heat island effect due to the replacement of natural vegetation with infrastructure like pavement, which absorbs more heat. This can mean the impact of climate change is more keenly felt by the 80 percent of Americans who live in cities, particularly in the recent waves of extreme heat.

    A new report from the House Judiciary Committee indicates that an effort against “Russian disinformation” on social media platforms, spearheaded by the FBI and Ukrainian intelligence officials, resulted in the censorship of Americans’ accounts. In one case, the FBI and Ukrainian intelligence effort flagged an account run by the U.S. State Department for censorship, but it was ultimately not taken down. The report was obtained by CNN and is based on subpoenas from the subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, the investigations of which have already exposed key details about the government’s online censorship machine.

    A raft of regulations enacted by the Biden administration is pinching Americans’ wallets to the tune of nearly $10,000 per household as of the end of last year, according to a budget watchdog group. Should Biden’s regulatory trajectory keep pace with that of his former boss, Barack Obama, the cost will skyrocket to roughly $60,000 per household by the end of Biden’s possible second term in office, the Committee to Unleash Prosperity estimated in a recent report that measured “current and expected future costs.”

    Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott said Monday on “CNN This Morning” that Americans value their guns more than their fellow citizens’ lives. Scott said, “Well, my community knows this. We know that when you think about this country and the history of mass shootings, most of the time when we talk about this, we’re talking about it being a school in a rural community or a suburban white community. When it happens in Baltimore or Chicago or D.C., it doesn’t get that same attention. These black American lives, children’s lives matter just as much as anyone else. We’re just asking for...
