At the same time, it contains far too much prescription in areas where none is needed, using the Green New Deal as a platform to add in unrelated proposals for free college, a job guarantee, and other ideas that motivate progressives.The choice to leave out important climate policy, and toss in a bunch of non-climate policy, can be seen as a result of coalition-building efforts among progressive activists. AMI owed about $203 million more than its assets were worth.If there’s one thing we know about the president, it’s that he cares deeply about reporters’ well-beingA new report on Klobuchar’s management style may be the most damning yetMany of those who worked for Klobuchar knew that when Klobuchar declared her intention to run for the presidency — something she has longed to do for years — they would be forced to decide about how much they should say about what they had witnessed while in her employ.“This was coming,” one former staffer said.Speaking out could lead to retribution from Klobuchar, should she be able to identify them. It was also a sign of how far Klobuchar would go to punish those who she thought betrayed her.One former Klobuchar staffer says she and others have been sharing a recent Washington Post column by conservative (and anti-Trump) pundit George Will in which he called her the Democrat “best equipped to send the current president packing.” In particular, those former staffers have found laughable — and flagrantly inaccurate — Will’s assertion that Klobuchar’s “temperament” is “her special strength.”President Hannity has voiced his displeasure with the new Congressional compromiseIt’s the end of the line for California’s high-speed rail projectAnother sign that we may be headed for an economic downturnA record 7 million Americans are 90 days or more behind on their auto loan payments, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York reported Tuesday, even more than during the wake of the financial crisis era.Economists warn that this is a red flag. Like other Klobuchar alumni, she described haranguing late-night phone calls and critical emails written in all caps, sometimes sent in quick succession.The former staffer said that Klobuchar “has fully earned reputation” as an exceptionally difficult boss “independent of her gender.” She added that, given the behavior that she witnessed from Klobuchar, she could not vote for her in the Democratic primary, in which the senator is expected to portray herself as a sensible Midwestern progressive who can win over independent voters.“The way she treats staff is disqualifying,” the former staffer said.… Speaking out could lead to retribution from Klobuchar, should she be able to identify them. But by purchasing the Memphis building and others like it, Alden has already begun coming for what it may consider a bigger prize: Gannett’s real estate.Mitch McConnell really, really wants to get this over withThere’s going to be more GOP pressure on Trump this time aroundEsquire’s new cover, which seems designed to outrage people, is outraging peoplePast presidents weren’t so blatant about this kind of thingPresident Donald Trump on Monday publicly pushed the Tennessee Valley Authority to save an aging coal plant in Kentucky that buys its fuel from one of the president’s top supporters.“Coal is an important part of our electricity generation mix and @TVAnews should give serious consideration to all factors before voting to close viable power plants, like Paradise #3 in Kentucky!” Trump tweeted.His missive came just days before the TVA board is slated to vote on the future of Paradise Unit 3, a 49-year-old coal plant that the federally owned utility has said would be too expensive to keep operating.
