One month ago, the heart of President Joe Biden 's domestic agenda was on life support, and his job approval rating had dropped to a new low. Biden and his party appeared headed for a shellacking in the midterm elections. Even Democratic voters seemed ready to move on from the president, openly questioning whether he should seek a second term. But seemingly overnight, in an unexpected turn of events, Biden has regained some momentum following what has been the most productive period of his presidency. In a rare flurry of bipartisan activity over the past six weeks, Congress passed the most significant gun control regulation in three decades and made a major investment in U.S. manufacturing to counter competition from China. And on Sunday, Senate Democrats approved an energy, tax and health care package on a party-line vote, delivering on a number of longtime Democratic priorities. The House is expected to vote on the bill Friday. Still, the president's approval rating … [Read more...] about Biden boosts legacy with energy, health care bill. Will voters reward him?

In his play for Michigan, Joe Biden jabbed at Republican U.S. Senate candidate John James, calling him a “disaster.” Biden took his swipe at John James during a campaign speech on Friday in Metro Detroit when he told incumbent Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI) that John James wants to get rid of the Affordable Care Act. “This isn’t hyperbole. Just like your opponent calls it a disaster,” Biden said, as reported by Michigan Live . “Talk about a disaster—there’s a disaster. [James says he is] 2,000% or 200%—whatever it is—with Trump. Hope everybody remembers.” In a video posted to Twitter, James responded to Biden by reminding him that his position stems only from the fact that he was Barack Obama’s vice president. “Joe Biden, don’t forget your place in black America,” James said. “You’re only where you are because you were Barack Obama’s vice president.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said in an interview late last week that if Republicans win back control of the U.S. House of Representatives, he will use their subpoena power to find out what U.S. intelligence agencies knew about the Hunter Biden laptop before the 2020 election, and what they knew of his foreign activities while his father was vice president. McCarthy, who made the remarks in an interview with the New York Post, warned that “we will use the subpoena” option if top officials with the intelligence agencies don’t cooperate with Republicans.
