President Joe Biden promised that he would be “President of all Americans.” He said he wanted to rid our political culture of the red vs. blue state dialog. There are a group of red states out west, however, who aren’t feeling so loved by the new president. Union workers expecting to earn good wages on the Keystone XL Pipeline from Montana south through the Dakotas, Nebraska, Oklahoma to the Texas Gulf received the news that President Biden was canceling the pipeline permit, reversing former President Donald Trump’s approval right after the new Trump administration was installed in 2016. Montana Governor ...Continue reading
President Joe Biden wants to send Americans who earn less than $75,000 per year another stimulus check payment of $1,400. Deficit-weary Republican senators and some moderate Democrats like Joe Manchin of West Virginia have already gone on record that he does “absolutely not” support including the additional payment in any relief deal. Sounding more like a fiscal conservative, Senator Manchin asked, “How is the money that we invest now going to help us best to get jobs back and get people employed...I can’t tell you that sending another check out is gonna do that to a person that’s already got ...Continue reading
The Biden Administration is proposing a titanic bill to provide pandemic relief and economic stimulus. As with all massive pieces of legislation, there are a lot of moving parts most Americans may not be aware of. The bill is substantially larger than the $900 billion package passed late last year and signed into law by former President Donald Trump around the Christmas holiday. And while the Democrats have a narrow Senate majority now in a 50-50 split chamber with Vice President Kamala Harris representing the tiebreaking vote, the proposed package could still face some resistance based on its steep cost. ...Continue reading
One of the goals that President Joe Biden has set is to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour. Doing so would more than double it from where it currently sits at $7.25 per hour, and the thinking behind doing so is that it would help reduce nationwide poverty and provide a living wage to all Americans, regardless of the jobs they work or the career path they choose. It's a notable initiative that could come at just the right time, as millions of Americans struggle to make ends meet as the COVID-19 pandemic drags on. But like ...Continue reading
You've likely heard about cryptocurrency in the past few years with Bitcoin as the first of its kind. Launched in 2009, it's gone through several trials and encountered plenty of skepticism before reaching its current status as a potentially valuable alternative asset. Diehard enthusiasts claim that it might dismantle mainstream centralized currency. In 2021, Bitcoin has been gaining more traction as it's now worth more than ever before. More business and finance executives seem to be coming out every month noting that bitcoin is here to stay. People are paying attention to cryptocurrency in a new way, no longer dismissing ...Continue reading
Reports are that President Joe Biden will cancel the Keystone XL pipeline permit as one of his first executive orders on day one of his presidency. The Keystone Pipeline System is a private enterprise energy project owned by Canada’s TC Energy Corporation. Plans were to shunt oil from Western Canada to U.S. refineries in southwest Texas. Estimates are that, if completed, the pipeline could carry more crude oil than some OPEC members produce. One of former President Obama’s first executive orders was to cancel the cross-border permit for the pipeline. Construction plans remained on hold until former President Donald Trump ...Continue reading
