GDP growth dramatically outpaced forecasts made a year ago. Most forecasters expected the economy to grow 3 to 4 percent this year. Instead it has grown 5.5 percent. That is more than a percentage point faster than even the most optimistic forecast was expecting.

In the summer of 1994, I was a summer law clerk in the White House Counsel Office and worked on the confirmation of then-Judge Stephen Breyer to the Supreme Court. Coming full circle.

On FTN, @ScottGottliebMD says masks are "providing some benefit. And a lot of schools that couldn't implement social distancing [or] testing are relying on masks... So to withdraw it right at the peak of the epidemic, I think is imprudent. We should wait." cbsn.ws/3GZkL8k

This week, the @potus delivered the question that should define the rest of 2022, “What are Republicans for?” ... the media’s penchant for so casually accepting GOP obstructionism is a tremendous disservice to the American people. I write for @USATODAY usatoday.com/story/opinion/c…

A group of new electric-car start-ups have promised a renaissance of American automaking. Yet in more than half of the country, a patchwork of laws forbid them from selling their cars to the public—or offering them for test drives, @yayitsrob reports: on.theatln.tc/COLq2IN

I’m grateful to every Senator who fought this past week and especially tonight, for voting rights and democracy. It was worth every moment to lay bare the gravity of this moment & where every Senator stands. Thank you @SenSchumer for taking the time to fight for what’s right.

Hey, the big public radio station in Chicago, WBEZ, is buying the Chicago Sun Times and turning it into a non-profit. That combo will now go up against the private equity crocodile that owns the Tribune. Local philanthropy's on board with the new entity. wbez.org/stories/chicago-pub…
