Why Congress’ Own Economists Predict 15 Million Unemployed In 2021

While President Donald Trump says the economy will take off like a rocket when social-distancing guidelines end, the Congressional Budget Office estimates an unemployment rate of 9% at the end of 2021. In fact, economists think the US might already be at 15% unemployment. With parts of the economy like restaurants, sporting events, movie theaters, and concerts unlikely to be able to go back to 100% capacity for months or longer, it may be hard to bring the unemployment level back down to full employment rapidly.

The Law Banning Congressional Insider Trading Isn’t Enough to Stop It

WASHINGTON — The law banning members of Congress from insider trading should be upgraded in light of the frantic stock trading on Capitol Hill during the coronavirus pandemic, the bill’s author, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), told VICE News.

Members of Congress should be banned from owning individual stocks altogether, and the sharing of “political intelligence” with outsiders should have to be disclosed, Gillibrand said.

Her remarks follow waves of outrage over members of Congress selling millions worth of shares before the market tanked over fears of coronavirus. In some cases, those sales came after closed-door briefings about the virus.

Senators Richard Burr (R-NC) and Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) have taken the brunt of public criticism, although several other members of Congress also bought and sold stocks between January and March of this year. The Department of Justice is reportedly investigating the trades, and has reached out to Sen. Burr.

Why The National Stockpile Didn’t Save Us From The Coronavirus Spread

In 1999, President Clinton ordered the formation of the Strategic National Stockpile — a series of warehouses in secret locations filled with medical supplies and personal protective equipment to be used in case of a natural disaster or health emergency. Since the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic, the Stockpile has already distributed about 90% of its resources, according to federal officials. We asked the Department of Health and Human Services why the Stockpile didn’t have enough resources to meet the demand for PPE required by healthcare professionals fighting COVID-19 on the front lines. According to a HHS spokesperson, the Stockpile wasn’t designed for an event of this magnitude. However, thanks to billions in newly allocated funds from Congress and private contracts to replenish the Stockpile’s warehouses, some much-needed help is on the way.
