White House willing to cut a stimulus deal without ‘liability shield,’ breaking with McConnell

Posted on

One of the people familiar with the administration’s thinking said the measure was “considered important but not absolutely essential.”

White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany told reporters on Friday that the liability shield was McConnell’s priority but that Trump wanted unemployment insurance extended.

“That’s a question for Mitch McConnell … that’s his priority,” McEnany said, when asked if the administration would insist on a liability shield. “This president is very keenly focused on unemployment insurance.”

The dealmaking flexibility conflicts with the ultimatum McConnell has given Democrats that any congressional stimulus package must make it significantly harder for workers and customers to sue employers and businesses for damages related to the coronavirus.

McConnell has said he will not bring up legislation for a vote in the Senate if it does not include the liability measure. “We’re not negotiating over liability protection,” McConnell told CNBC on Tuesday. “We’re not negotiating with Democrats over

Boparan, who bought Carluccio’s in May, has bought 35 of the burger restaurant’s sites. However, under the pre-pack administration deal, 26 other sites will close, with the loss of 362 jobs.

The burger chain, which was owned by the South African company Famous Brands, which also owns Wimpy in the UK, was put on the market as it struggled amid the pandemic and high street lockdown.

But Gourmet Burger Kitchen has been in difficulties since a restructuring deal with landlords in 2018 under which it agreed to close up to 17 sites after the casual dining market became oversaturated.

Gavin Maher, a partner at Deloitte who was appointed joint administrator on Wednesday, said: “The broader

Amazon Strikes Free-Year Deal With Discovery’s Food Network Kitchen App 04/28/2020

Posted on

Following in the footsteps of digital TV
distributors and communications companies to gain more business, Amazon Fire TV, a pay TV provider of networks, has struck a deal with Discovery Inc. to give away the cable network group’s Food
Network Kitchen streaming app service free for a year.

Amazon Fire TV has around 40 million subscribers, according to the company.

Last year, Verizon Wireless
offered a one-year-free subscription to Disney+ to its communication consumers for that service’s initial launch in November 2019.  Analysts estimates this contributed some 10 million
subscribers to the new streaming service.

Apple has also offered a complimentary year of Apple TV+  —  a competing product to Disney+ also launched around the same
period — to buyers of any of its devices.
 

Recently, T-Mobile had a promotional plan giving certain customers a full year of the free, the short-form
digital service Quibi, which launched April 6.  Starting

Plants: What to Have
