  • Carson voted for $1.9T relief bill; GOP opposed
    “A year into the COVID-19 pandemic, the ongoing devastation in our communities is inconceivable. We have tragically lost more than 12,000 Hoosiers to this deadly virus. In addition, the economic and emotional toll of this pandemic is harming countess families and threatening countless futures. We have to do everything in our power to overcome this immense challenge. Democrats promised more action and more relief to meet this moment, and through this legislation we are working to make good on that promise.” U.S. Rep. André Carson (D-Indianapolis) voted in favor of H.R. 1319, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, which passed the U.S. House. This sweeping legislation implements President Biden’s plan to address the ongoing public health and economic crises brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. The $1.9 trillion-dollar relief bill funds aggressive action to crush the virus and vaccinate Americans, keep kids in school safer, provide $1,400 direct payments to families in addition to December’s $600 down payment. U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Jimtown) and her six Indiana Republican colleagues voted against the bill, saying, "As safe and effective vaccines get us closer to ending this pandemic, we should be focused on defeating coronavirus, getting Americans back to work, and helping small businesses recover. Instead, Democrats tossed bipartisanship aside for a rushed, one-sided, $1.9 trillion spending bill – with less than 9% actually going to fight COVID. There hasn’t even been a full accounting of $1 trillion in unspent relief funds, but Speaker Pelosi wants taxpayers to foot the bill for trillions more."

  • HPI Power 50: Crisis shapes 2021 list

    By BRIAN A. HOWEY
    and MARK SCHOEFF JR.

    INDIANAPOLIS – After two decades of publishing Power 50 lists in the first week of January, this one comes in a true crisis atmosphere. As we watched in horror the U.S. Capitol being overrun by supporters of President Trump on Wednesday, the COVID-19 pandemic has killed more than 8,000 Hoosiers and 350,000 Americans, shutting down our state and nation for nearly two months last spring. While vaccines are coming, there will be a distinct BC (Before COVID) and AC delineations as this epic story comes to a close. It gripped like a vise key figures, from Gov. Eric Holcomb to Vice President Pence. It delayed an election, closed schools and restaurants, reordered the way we do business and buy things, and will set in motion ramifications that we can’t truly understand (like the virus itself) at this point in time. There’s another crisis at hand. It’s our society’s civics deficit, fueled by apathy that transcends our schools and societal engagement, and allowed to fester by a news media in atrophy. That three members of the Indiana congressional delegation – U.S. Sen. Mike Braun and Reps. Jim Banks and Jackie Walorski – signed on to a protest this week, induced by losing President Donald Trump to “investigate” widespread vote fraud that doesn’t exist, is another indicator of the risks a polarized and undisciplined political spectrum brings to the fragile American democratic experience.
