President Hits Campaign Trail-Presents “Bidenomics” to Chicago

 

What You Need to Know:

He described the end results, which included adding trillions of dollars to the national deficit, and “stripped the dignity, pride, and hope of the middle class.”

What You Need to Know:

 

In a major election-law decision, the Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday that although the Constitution gives state legislatures the power to regulate federal elections, state courts can supervise the legislature’s exercise of that power.

Republican-controlled legislatures have been doing everything in their power to control every facet of state and federal elections, empowered by Donald Trump’s false claims that the 2020 election was stolen. Their pursuits include shuffling election boards into Republican hands, gerrymandering district maps, and attempting to seize power over elections in local courts.

A veteran traveler, Jean had experienced symptoms of hereditary ATTR (hATTR) amyloidosis, a rare disease characterized by the buildup of misfolded transthyretin proteins (known as amyloid deposits) in the body, for a long time. The symptoms of hATTR amyloidosis can vary widely and affect several parts of the body, including the peripheral nervous system, cardiac system, and autonomic nervous system.
