WHAT’S TRENDING THIS WEEK

  • Budget: Last week, President Biden released his 2022 budget. The $6 trillion proposal aims to grow the middle class by investing deeply in education, infrastructure, and fighting climate change — and it’s paid for by making sure the ultra rich pay their fair share.
  • COVID-19: As of June 2, more than 50% of the United States’ total population has received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine and more than 50% of American adults are fully vaccinated. Across the country, new infection rates are the lowest they have been since the pandemic began.
