Biden s plan:

    Policy is not getting the bulk of the attention in this presidential race, but don’t let that fool you into thinking Joe Biden isn’t doing policy. Biden on Thursday proposed a temporary version of the American Family Act, to be in place “for the duration of the crisis” of COVID-19 and the accompanying economic downturn.  What does that mean? Well, the American Family Act (AFA) is an enormously important proposal to reduce child poverty in the U.S., authored by Sens. Michael Bennet and Sherrod Brown. It would give families with children aged 6 to 17 $3,000 per year per child, and $3,600 for children under 5. But it wouldn’t take the form of the existing child tax credit, which comes as a lump...
    JOE Biden has announced his plan to give parents up to $300 per month during the coronavirus pandemic.

Biden started to answer, trying to dispute one of the things she had said before she finished laying our her question.

    As the U.S. coronavirus death toll approaches 200,000, the topic of health care takes center stage ahead of Election Day. Federal data released Tuesday reveals nearly 30 million people in the United States lacked health insurance in 2019, prior to the coronavirus pandemic. President Trump again this week vowed to release a proposal to protect Americans with pre-existing conditions. "I have it all ready. I have it all ready," Mr. Trump told ABC News on Tuesday during a Town Hall. Since running for president in 2015, President Trump has promised to bring forth a "terrific" and "phenomenal" new health care plan to replace the Affordable Care Act, but has yet to deliver. White House chief of staff Mark Meadows told reporters on...
    Joe Biden is taking his turn at the televised town hall thing Thursday night on CNN, and unlike Donald Trump earlier in the week, Biden is unlikely to respond to a woman mentioning her mother’s cancer death by attributing it to COVID-19. The former vice president is also unlikely to claim that the virus “is going away” because the U.S. will develop “herd mentality.” In short, Biden is going to do better than Trump as long as the grading is fair. Unfortunately, we all know that the two candidates’ performances will be graded on a curve to normalize Trump’s callousness, incoherence, and lies. (So many lies.) But Biden will once again show that he is sharper and more knowledgeable than the Trump...
    President Trump was in the spotlight Tuesday night for a rare town hall in Philadelphia with undecided voters, where he fielded questions on topics including the coronavirus pandemic and health care, which have been on the minds of many voters.  He made a variety of claims about the health care system, health care proposals and the scientific realities of COVID-19. Here are some of the highlights, as well as fact checking and context for his statements. Trump says COVID-19 will go away without a vaccine Mr. Trump repeated a claim Tuesday night he has made in the past — that COVID-19 is "probably going to go away now a lot faster because of the vaccine" but "would go away...
    President Trump on Wednesday slammed Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden for saying he distrusts potential COVID-19 vaccines. “I’m calling on Biden to stop promoting his anti-vaccine theories because all they’re doing is hurting the importance of what we’re doing,” Trump said at a White House press briefing. “They’re recklessly endangering lives. You can’t do that… and that’s only because they know we have it, or we will soon have it.” Biden said at a Wednesday press conference he doubts the efficacy of any vaccine if there isn’t robust independent scientific oversight of the approval process. Biden also called for “an effective distribution plan” for a COVID-19 vaccine at a Wednesday press conference before admitting he didn’t study a plan...
    CNN’s Erin Burnett confronted Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh Wednesday night asking him what exactly President Donald Trump’s much-talked-about health care plan is and when Americans will see it. Burnett noted what Trump said at his ABC News town hall Tuesday night about his health care plan and asked Murtaugh, “Is this real or just an empty campaign promise?” “Of course it’s real,” Murtaugh said, before slamming the Obama administration over Obamacare and “if you like your plan you can keep your plan.” He defended Trump’s record on health care and said, “I’m not going to get ahead of the White House and their plans for the announcement. I think you heard the chief of staff say I...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The coronavirus cannot be wished away. Real people kept it real. Preparation — and the moderator — matters. President Donald Trump’s town hall in front of undecided Pennsylvania voters offered an intriguing preview of how he may approach his first debate against Democratic nominee Joe Biden in two weeks. Tuesday night’s event on ABC featured predictable attack lines and vague promises of policy from Trump. But it also showcased, again, the president’s struggle to effectively defend his handling of the coronavirus pandemic that has claimed the lives of nearly 200,000 Americans. And while the president’s aides have been eager to shift focus off the virus, the town hall made clear that the campaign, now down to its...
    WILMINGTON, DELAWARE - Democratic Party presidential candidate Joe Biden on Wednesday called for an outside board of scientists, not President Donald Trump, to determine whether any vaccine for the coronavirus is safe and effective. “I trust vaccines. I trust scientists. But I don't trust Donald Trump. And at this moment, the American people can't either,” the former vice president said in Wilmington, Delaware. Speaking in a downtown theater to a group of journalists, Biden introduced his own vaccine distribution plan, which outlines when Americans should expect to get a vaccine once it is available, offers guidelines for who should have priority for vaccination, explains mechanisms for shipping and storing the vaccine, and details responsibility in the process at every level...
    The Trump administration’s plans for a rapid vaccine rollout came into clearer focus Wednesday, sparking confusion within the administration and confrontation with Democratic nominee Joe Biden. The Department of Health and Human Services unveiled its plans Wednesday for distributing a coronavirus vaccine, the first time the agency has made such plans public. Officials overseeing Operation Warp Speed, the White House initiative to fund research into a vaccine and treatment for COVID-19, promised that all six of the government-backed vaccine efforts would be in the final stage of trials by the end of the year, and once approved, they will be shipped out to states within 24 hours. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Robert Redfield told reporters...

    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Wednesday said that the US needs “an effective distribution plan” for a COVID-19 vaccine — before admitting he didn’t study the plan put out by the Trump administration earlier in the day. “They haven’t put one in place for real yet, number one. Number two, I haven’t seen the detail of it. And it may be — it may be a very good plan as is,” Biden said at a press conference in Wilmington, Del.

    Democratic nominee Joe Biden demanded 'transparency' from President Donald Trump in developing and distributing a coronavirus vaccine, as the White House has continued to push that one would be available to every American by the end of the year.  'So let me be clear, I trust vaccines. I trust the scientists. But I don't trust Donald Trump - and the American people can't either,' Biden said during a brief speech Wednesday afternoon from Wilmington, Delaware's Queen theater.   Biden floated that Trump could be fast-tracking a vaccine to help his re-election chances, noting that 'scientific breakthroughs don't care about calendars any more than the virus does.'  Democratic nominee Joe Biden demanded 'transparency' in the development and the distribution of a...

    (CNN)President Donald Trump is used to taking questions from celebrity anchors at Fox News, who lob softballs greased with praise. His appearance in a town hall Tuesday night, held by ABC News, featuring questions from undecided voters in Pennsylvania, was an altogether different experience. Faced with demands for answers, Trump resorted to his standard lies about what he has done and what his rival, Democratic candidate Joe Biden, would do as president. Frida Ghitis The most obvious conclusion one can reach watching Trump lie about his own record and about what Biden proposes, is that Trump simply does not believe he has a superior plan to offer voters. He looked like a fast-talking salesman hawking an inferior product.Consider, for example,...
    A millionaire Democrat donor, who was once listed as a billionaire by Forbes, says Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden will be good for Wall Street in the long run. Michael Novogratz, the former Goldman Sachs executive and hedge fund manager, told CNBC in an interview that while a Biden win against President Donald Trump may initially drag the market down, Wall Street will stand to benefit. “I think Biden’s going to win. I hope Biden wins,” said Novogratz, who now runs an investment firm. “But if he wins, I think the market will go down, at least initially because he’s going to raise capital gains tax … he’s going to raise corporate taxes some and he’s going to raise personal income...
    According to the polling aggregate at RealClearPolitics, Joe Biden leads Donald rump by about seven points in the national polls. That lead is larger than any candidate in the previous four presidential races has held at this point in the cycle. For Trump supporters, that’s bad news, which is why it is becoming apparent that the only way he can win is to cheat. True to himself, Trump has been broadcasting some of the ways he is likely to cheat by referring to the 2020 election—and specifically the use of mail-in ballots during a pandemic—as the most corrupt in this country’s history. His message is meant to undermine voter’s trust in the outcome, which is a form of voter suppression. According to the New York Times, the...
    A new study predicts Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's tax and spending policies would add almost $2 trillion to the federal deficit in the next decade. The analysis by the Penn Wharton Budget Model, a research project at the University of Pennsylvania, estimates Biden will raise almost $3.4 trillion in new revenue and increase spending by over $5 trillion within a 10-year window. Biden's platform is also projected to decrease the federal debt by 6.1% by 2050 and increase the nation's gross domestic product by 0.8%. Almost 80% of the increase in taxes under the former vice president's plan would fall on the top 1% of the country's income distribution, according to the study. Households with adjusted gross incomes of...

    Joe Biden's economic proposals would create a faster growing economy, higher wages for American workers and reduce the debt compared to where the U.S. is headed under President Donald Trump, according to new analysis from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School.

    After decades of cheering on a rising China, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is now scrambling to show he cares about the destruction of millions of American jobs and the erosion of our industrial base. His latest plan is inconsistent and outdated, revealing a desperation to reclaim the high ground of supporting American industry for a political party that has long since left it behind.

    Joe Biden's economic plan would impose higher taxes on top earners and corporations to pay for investments in education, infrastructure and other domestic programs, according to a new analysis. The plan would increase taxes by $3.375 trillion, not enough to pay for a planned $5.35 trillion spending spree, according to the Penn Wharton Budget Model.

    The financial services industry seems very exorcised by a relatively modest proposal in Joe Biden’s tax plan — namely, changing the tax incentive to save for retirement from a deduction to a flat, refundable tax credit. Let’s see if this proposed change would really “upend” our entire 401(k) system. Saving under current law is tax advantaged. Employers and individuals take an immediate deduction for contributions to retirement plans and participants pay no tax on investment returns until benefits are paid out in retirement. This favorable tax treatment significantly reduces the lifetime taxes of those who receive part of their compensation in contributions to retirement plans relative to those who receive all their earnings in cash wages.

It's an election year and you know what that means: Proposals are cropping up from both sides of the aisle that promise to make your life easier. One, supported by the Biden-Harris ticket, is a change to the tax rules for 401(k) retirement plans. Given that roughly half of Americans are participating in a workplace-sponsored retirement plan, the proposed tax adjustments aren't tiny changes that only affect the wealthy. So the big question is, if Biden can put his plan into action, how would it affect...

    Donald Trump’s nonstop lies, together with his endless cries of “fake news” and “hoax,” make the role of media fact checkers more important than ever. Unfortunately, on the crucial issue of Social Security, too many of them are furiously defending Trump from his own words. Instead of acting as a check on Trump’s lies, they act like bullied children seeking to appease. They provide him cover, grade him on a curve, and give him every benefit of the doubt while denying that same leniency to Joe Biden and others. This is an extreme disservice in the lead-up to the election, muddying the debate over an issue about which voters care deeply. I am as objective as any fact checker. In the past, I have...

Bush’s [2004] ‘Willing worker, willing employer’ proposal,” said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies. The Bush proposal, he said, would have allowed: Any employer to import any number of workers from anywhere in the world to do any job at any wage above minimum wage. What Biden wants to do … is to give city and county governments the ability to import people and then give them to the employers. In exchange, Krikorian...
    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden will both bring their presidential campaigns to Minnesota on Friday of next week.

    In 1819, Chief Justice John Marshall of the U.S. Supreme Court famously wrote:  “the power to tax involves the power to destroy ….” This truism has not been lost on firearm prohibitionists, who when unable to ban guns outright have often tried to tax them out of reach of the average citizen. Earlier this year, Democrat Governor Phil Murphy of New Jersey actually did try to exploit panic over the COVID-19 outbreak to ban firearm sales. Failing at that, however, he is now proposing exponential tax increases on constitutionally protected arms. This should surprise no one, being that Joe Biden – the Democrat candidate for the White House – is proposing similar measures. Ironically, both Murphy and Biden insist that they are champions...

    Washington, DC (CNN)During a campaign speech in North Carolina on Tuesday, President Donald Trump spent much of his time attacking his opponent, Democratic nominee Joe Biden, with accusations that were often false or misleading. He inaccurately went after Biden on topics ranging from gun control, the border, his tax plan and pandemic response. CNN counted at least 10 false or misleading claims Trump made against his opponent. Here's a look at the President's claims and the facts behind them.

    If Joe Biden becomes the 46th president of the United States, he will walk into the Oval Office with a mountain of problems in front of him, but perhaps none more pressing than the climate crisis. The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has said that we only have until the end of this decade to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 45% below 2010 levels, and until 2050 to reach net zero. So far, we are way behind on meeting those goals, in no small part because of the Trump administration’s ongoing attempts to undermine environmental policy to the point that former EPA employees have created a plan to completely reset the agency to undo his damage. Sharing the...

    Joe Biden wants every American to wear a mask — and if he wins the White House, he has vowed to mandate mandatory masks for all. “Every single American should be wearing a mask when they’re outside for the next three months at a minimum — every governor should mandate mandatory mask wearing. The estimates by the experts are that it will save over 40,000 lives in the next three months. Forty thousand lives, if people act responsibly,” Biden said last month. “Let’s institute a mask mandate nationwide starting immediately, and we will save lives.” Then he lectured Americans, saying, “It’s not about your rights. It’s about your responsibilities as an American. Wearing the mask is less about you contracting the...

The tax code will inevitably be one of the critical engines needed for the nation to start digging itself out of its current fiscal challenges.

It's obviously difficult to do tax planning, especially in an election. Depending on which party wins control of the White House,...
    Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden is touting Wall Street’s support for his $640 billion housing plan that would force low-income, multi-family housing developments into America’s suburban communities. During a visit to Kenosha, Wisconsin — where the Black Lives Matter organization and members of Antifa have led riots for weeks — Biden told supporters that Wall Street supports his housing plan because it “will increase the GDP.” “And by the way, it’s not a waste of money. Even the folks on Wall Street point out that will increase the GDP, make it grow,” Biden said of the plan. “People will do better, people will do better.” Biden’s housing plan, as Breitbart News has noted, would implement an unprecedented expansion of Section...

But Biden’s tax increases go far beyond simply undoing some of the TCJA, the net result of...
