Did Rudy Giuliani do a (nother) crime? New York Mayor Eric Adams thinks they should look into it! (New York Daily News)

It's not funny but it's pretty funny and I can't stop laughing (it's not funny): Sorry, gonna need some extended blockquote from "Democrats suggest."

Democrats suggest their rivals are eleventh-hour converts who would offer half-measures at best and voters should judge them accordingly. [...]

GOP leaders have generally opposed Biden’s expansion of the child tax credit — saying it would discourage people from working despite evidence to the contrary. Congressional Republicans said the Democrats’ paid family leave plan — which would put the U.S. on par with other wealthy nations — could limit choices for families and crush small businesses. In 2017, House Republicans voted to repeal “Obamacare” and replace it with measures that could have made maternity care optional. [...]

An Associated Press analysis earlier this year found that states with the strictest abortion laws — often led by Republicans — generally provide far less support to parents and children, usually leading to more poverty and worse health outcomes. In response to AP’s findings, many conservative state lawmakers said women can give their newborns up for adoption and said they would support funding increases for foster-care programs. [...]

[Rick] Scott’s “Rescue America” plan says that no federal program or tax laws should reward people for being unmarried and that the federal government should pay all costs for unwed mothers who put their children up for adoption, among other policies.

Rep. Cori Bush organized to get funding for the energy transition the Biden administrator asked for — but didn't ask for funding for. It'd be great if some of you among the commenters didn't have such a hate-on for the Squad. They do important things, and it's annoying. (The American Prospect)

House staff report on what the fuck the Trump administration was doing on coronavirus. (They could use another on what the fuck is the Biden administration doing on it, but the Biden administration isn't so glaringly venal and morbidly incompetent, and I guess coronavirus is over, so.)
