Yeah the tax credits were in the plan but there were no details - so these are the details I assume.


As far as the checks for once I agree with Bernie Sanders. If you start dropping people then the Trumpers have a case to say "See we got more money from Trump than Biden". I hope this is all talk to placate and they stick with the original plan as flawed as it is.

Yeah, I've come to realize you are right about this. Why bother to compromise with the R's on this matter. It's not a good move politically and they have been bad faith actors for years now.

Impeachment Trial schedule


The impeachment trial begins Tues. Feb. 9th -
starting daily at 12 noon Eastern.

(Some sites say that it starts at 1:00pm Eastern on Tues. Feb. 9th, 
and then it starts at noon Eastern daily thereafter.)


They will adjourn Friday Feb 12 before sunset, due to the religious obligations of an Orthodox Jewish attorney on the case.


They will reconvene Sunday Feb 14 at noon.


Update: the Orthodox attorney on Trump's team said he withdraws his request to adjourn for the Saturday Sabbath. He said he thinks the trial should continue on Saturday, and that another/others in the defense team can take his place on Saturday.

That would mean that that trial would meet Saturday, and maybe take Sunday off? 


To be determined, subject to change, etc.



Also FYI, the reason they wanted the trial to convene daily at noon... was so that the Senate could do regular Senate business in the mornings -- such as working on legislation, confirming cabinet nominees, etc.

Another depressing morning for the WH Press Corps, who seem to miss being the center of attention of the last four years (and if you think this seems crestfallen, check out Maggie Haberman's Twitter feed these days):

This all feels like another sideshow. Trump has idiots go out there to present the whole trial as a joke, the media nods along, Trump is acquitted, and time Democrats need for so much else is gone.
