Second stimulus check: House GOP kills $2,000 proposal and leaves $600 deal in limbo

Posted on

If a deal is reached, experts say it will take at least two weeks for the Treasury to get cash into individuals’ bank accounts after any new legislation is signed.

“The timing could be more challenging this time, but the IRS could likely begin to get the money out in January,” said Howard Gleckman, a senior fellow at the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center.

In March, Congress provided individuals with $1,200 direct payments and couples with $2,400 plus $500 per child under the $2 trillion CARES Act.

As with that first round, the $600 payments included in the current legislation would start phasing out for individuals with adjusted gross incomes of more than $75,000, and those making more than $99,000 won’t receive anything. The income thresholds would be doubled for couples.

It took two weeks after the first bill was passed for the IRS to start distributing the money — but

John Kelly: Trump’s ex-White House chief of staff supports using 25th Amendment to remove the President

Posted on

“Yes, I would,” Kelly told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “The Lead” when asked if he would be in support of invoking the amendment if he had a vote.

The comments from Kelly, who left the White House under contentious circumstances in January 2019, come as a growing list of Democratic and Republican members of Congress are calling for Trump to be removed from office either through impeachment or the 25th Amendment after a violent mob of Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol on Wednesday.

They also represent one of the strongest rebukes of Trump from a former member of his White House amid the fallout from Wednesday’s riot. Invoking the 25th Amendment would require Vice President Mike Pence and a majority of the Cabinet to vote to remove Trump from office due to his inability to “discharge the powers and duties of his office” — an unprecedented step.

    House of Lords | British government

    Posted on

    House of Lords, the upper chamber of Great Britain’s bicameral legislature. Originated in the 11th century, when the Anglo-Saxon kings consulted witans (councils) composed of religious leaders and the monarch’s ministers, it emerged as a distinct element of Parliament in the 13th and 14th centuries. It currently comprises the following elements: (1) the Lords Spiritual, including the archbishops of Canterbury and York and the bishops of Durham, London, and Winchester, as well as 21 other bishops holding sees in England; (2) from November 1999, 92 hereditary peers; (3) from January 1980, all life peers and peeresses created under the Life Peerages Act of 1958. A fourth element, the Law Lords, consisting of the judges of the Supreme Court of Judicature (the Court of Appeal and the High Court of Justice), acted as Britain’s final court of appeal (except for Scottish criminal cases) until 2009, when the Law Lords were

    House of York | English family

    House of York, younger branch of the house of Plantagenet of England. In the 15th century, having overthrown the house of Lancaster, it provided three kings of England—Edward IV, Edward V, and Richard III—and, in turn defeated, passed on its claims to the Tudor dynasty.

    The house was founded by King Edward III’s fifth son, Edmund of Langley (1341–1402), 1st Duke of York, but Edmund and his own son, Edward, 2nd Duke of York, had for the most part undistinguished careers. Edward, dying childless, passed on the dukedom to his nephew Richard (whose mother was a descendant of Edward III’s second surviving son, Lionel, Duke of Clarence). Richard, 3rd Duke of York (1411–60), was the initial

    House & Home | Custom Home Builders

    “My wife and I have a combined 60 years of experience in real estate sales, development and construction. We have built about 13 homes for ourselves and have been involved at some level in the construction of over 3,000 homes in total.

    Our experience taught us we wanted “hands on” involvement from our contractor. We did not want a “suit and tie” to sign us up and then delegate the job to a superintendent. We wanted our builder, and in the case of Carey and Tammy Elam, our team, on the job every day. We also wanted experience, tested over time by discriminating buyers. We got all that we wanted and more with House & Home.

    Carey and Tammy are absolutely the best contractor/design team we have ever encountered. Their commitment to excellence, attention to detail and service to the customer is unsurpassed. We did not think folks offering the
