By ‘Opening Up for Business,’ Arizona COVID19 Cases Skyrocket

Arizona Representative Pamela Powers Hannley Inhabitants of Earth are nearly six months into the most disruptive year of our lives, thanks to the novel Coronavirus.

Biden: Trump’s Utter Failure to Lead in the Economic Crisis

Today, we learned that another 2.1 million people filed for unemployment last week, bringing the total number of new unemployment claims since this crisis began to more than 40 million. This is just the latest evidence of Donald Trump’s utter failure to do what a president should and must do: lead in a crisis.
