I know Manchin has his ~reasons~, and I know the overall amount of money for unemployed people is about the same, but one Senator being able to reduce the additional unemployment benefits from $400 to $300 feels a little...off. One Dem overruling 49 other Senators and 219 Reps.
I’ll still do some reporting at Daily Beast, and I’ll still get to the Capitol here and there — I’ll never quit you, House of Representatives — but I’m gonna do my best to be one of those editors that reporters actually like and respect, even if they always mess with your lede.
So, some professional news: Next week is my last at HuffPost. I’m joining the incredible team at The Daily Beast as their politics editor. I’ll have more to say about HuffPost and my fantastic colleagues — best job I ever had — but for now, I’ll leave it at this: Read HuffPost.
Meanwhile, there are plenty of unemployed people who didn’t get a stimulus check because they made too much money in 2018 or 2019. Obviously, what you made in 2018 has a lot to do with how much money you have now if you’ve been unemployed since March. Extremely Congress.

Warnock/Ossoff wins = approximately $1.3 trillion bigger stimulus.
Or more. The $618 billion outline came from moderate end of the Senate GOP. McConnell never exactly endorsed it and it’s far from clear anything like that would come up if he were in charge. https://t.co/Rr9Rxdxdmq
Former Illinois Gov Bruce Rauner wrote a $250,000 check to Florida Gov Ron DeSantis after the gated Florida Keys complex where Rauner now lives got vaccines before the rest of Florida. Miami Herald —> https://t.co/Y74VdO0t7H
“Since DeSantis started using the state’s vaccine initiative to steer special pop-up vaccinations to select communities, his political committee has raised $2.7 million in the month of February alone, more than any other month since he first ran for governor in 2018” https://t.co/HhHP4myeFq
