CONGRESS-STIMULUS (Washington) – Congress finally approved President Joe Biden’s nearly $ 1.9 trillion stimulus package on Wednesday as the Democrats cracked down on a unitary Republican opposition to push through an emergency chemicals bailout, the one enormous expansion of the country’s social safety net. With a vote of 220-211, the House passed the measure and approved it for Biden’s signature. It cemented one of the largest injections of federal aid since the Great Depression. The president is expected to sign the bill on Friday. By Emily Cochrane.

– INTERMEDIATE STIMULUS (Washington) – The Economic Aid Plan, which hits President Joe Biden’s desk, has been billed as the United States’ most ambitious anti-poverty initiative in generations.

BIDEN-POOR, Washington – On Friday, “Scranton Joe” Biden, whose political identity has largely been shaped by his attraction to union workers and workers like those from his hometown in Pennsylvania for the past five decades, will sign $ 1.9 trillion spending plan, which involves the greatest effort to fight poverty in any generation. The new role as Crusader for the Poor marks an evolution for Biden, who has spent much of his 36 years in Congress, focusing on foreign policy, judicial struggles, gun control and criminal justice through his Senate committee chairs.

ECON-INFLATION (undated) – As the Biden administration’s ambitious efforts to alleviate the pandemic’s deep economic wounds found their way through Congress, proponents insisted that the $ 1.9 trillion pass to American Households and Businesses wouldn’t unravel a monster: inflation. Fed officials responsible for balancing Americans’ labor needs with price pressures that could undermine their purchasing power said there was little to worry about. But as legislation neared the finish line, the inflation outlook increasingly influenced political commentary and trading on Wall Street. By Nelson D. Schwartz and Jeanna Smialek.

MOORE-BAPTIST-SPLIT (undated) – One of the most famous southern Baptists in the country is leaving the denomination. Beth Moore, a writer and speaker who teaches biblical topics in arenas filled with evangelicals, cited the “amazing” disorientation when denominational leaders endorse Donald Trump, among other things. Moore, who does not lead a church or teach a seminary, arguably exerts a deeper loyalty and a more authentic influence than many of the men who are often used as spokesmen for evangelicalism. By Ruth Graham and Elizabeth Dias.
